Webshare is not one of the big players of the proxy industry but have become quite popular since they launched their proxy services 3 years ago. What surprises the proxy clients the most is the price of the proxies that Webshare is providing on their website.

Not only that these proxies are cheap, they are capable of handling very high internet speeds and do not bottleneck internet speed as compared to various other proxy providers. Since these proxies are very fast, they are great for surfing the internet anonymously, Accessing geo-blocked websites and data Scraping!

Proxy types, features, and pricing

With a limited amount of bandwidth and Threads, Webshare provides you with a lot of datacenter proxies at the cheapest rates.

These proxies are called private proxies, Actually, it should be the shared proxies, which means that you and only you will have access to these proxies. Hence your IP will not get flagged or blocked from websites because of misuse by other people since only you can use the proxy.

For this review, we signed up on their website and took account of all the proxy packages that Webshare is providing. Note that these proxies are HTTP/HTTPs proxies and currently they do not provide Socks5 proxies.

By carefully observing these proxy packages, It’s safe to say that Webshare really does provide the cheapest rates of proxies on the internet. We compiled all these different packages in a data table which can be seen as follows.

Ping Test & Proxy Speed Test

To fully review these proxies, We conducted several tests on 10 of the proxies that we bought from Webshare. Among these tests are – ping test, speed test, geo-location test, and IP compatibility test. You can find details on our tests on the following sections.

Ping Test:

The first test that we performed on the proxies was a ping test. To check the quality of the proxies, How fast they are and how far the servers are located, the Ping test can unveil many factors such as stated above. By pinging these proxies, We can check the server response time and the delay in the response.

In a nutshell, Higher ping means lower response time, higher delay time, and Vice Versa. We used the popular internet service https://speedtest.net. This service calculates ping by connecting to the nearest server possible, providing the least possible ping. The results of the ping test of each of the proxy were comprised in the form of a table as shown below!

185.30.232.132175 ms
185.164.56.46199ms

Pings which are lower than 100ms are impressive. Higher pings can cause jittering, Hiccups, which lead to slow browsing speed and can seemingly destroy your gaming experience. However, Pings mostly depends on how far you actually are from the proxy server. If you’re present thousands of miles away from the proxy servers, High ping is inevitable.

The ping test result of Webshare proxies was very moderate. Some proxies pinged as high as 281ms while some as low as 174 ms.

Speed Test:

The next test we performed on the proxies was to check the connection speed. This gave us an overview of the proxy speed and the best scopes of applications for the proxies. We used the world’s most popular network testing tool, speedtest.net to determine the upload and download speed for the proxies.

It is one of the most trusted speed calculating online apps and has been widely used all around the world. We used this to check the connection speed of the proxies we bought.

Our test results showed that this 80 % of the proxies enhanced the download speed of the proxies, while one proxy IP showed ultra high speed capping a download speed of 120.05 Mbps. We took a speed test beforehand without using any proxy just to have something to compare the test results to.

Geolocation Test / ISP Test

One of the many reasons to why we use proxies in the first place is to change our IP address to some other location for different purposes like Surfing the web anonymously or accessing a website which is accessible only from a specific region of the world.

Whatever your reasons for using a proxy might me, It is mandatory that they proxies you are buying have the server location which you desire. Otherwise, there is no point of buying a proxy in the first place if you’re not getting the proxy location that you need. We used two different websites to check the location of these proxies to minimize the errors.

We performed this location test using two different websites, and the locations of these proxies were the same as mentioned on Webshare. Following are the Geolocation test results of all the proxies combined into tabular form.

As seen above, The IP’s are non-sequential which is an added plus. However, All of the proxies given above belong to the same ISP as displayed by ipinfo.io. This means that the IP’s may as well be of the same subnet as well.

IP address compatibility Test

This is the last test that we performed on the proxies, but it was also one of the most important tests on the proxies as well. In this test, We check the compatibility of the proxies as we use it to access different popular websites on the internet. Why do we perform this test?

Well, It is very common among the proxy selling services to give out used and blocked proxies which do not work on different websites. Moreover, some providers restrict access to some websites to promote their specialized packages for the sites. To check if Webshare gave out some Broken proxies, We performed the test on their proxies as well!

By the test results, We noticed that some of the proxies were not able to access many of the websites, which means that these proxies are either blocked or flagged by many popular websites and are hence used. Although most of the proxies were able to access most of the websites, The failure of quite a few other proxies subsequently lowered our trust factor on Webshare.

If you’re plan to use their proxies for instagram automation, 100% avoid it.

Our Editor’s Verdict

Webshare is one of the cheapest proxy selling services on the internet. Not only do they provide cheap proxies, But They also provide a lot of proxies as well. Their proxies passed most of our vigorous tests, which is more than what can be said on proxies with the same price point as Webshare’s.

 

However, The proxies provided by Webshare were unable to access some of the major websites on the internet, which mainly included social media websites. Hence they are not recommended for use on social media. We would recommend Buyproxies.org for your general-purpose browsing, surfing, and streaming.
