MyPrivateProxy Not Allowed:
MyPrivateProxy, less than two years old, is a fairly new service. The company has established a pattern of growth and utilization of high end equipment that is sure to keep it competitive for the long haul.
MyPrivateProxy offers many different packages with both private and shared proxies available. For private proxies, packages run from $2.49 per month, for one proxy, to $1,490 per month for a thousand proxies. Shared proxies, shared among other clients of the same company, are packaged from $50 per month for 50 proxies up to $1,300 per month for two thousand proxies. Price per proxy decreases on a linear basis as the number of proxies in the package increases. All packages come with no setup fee and a 99.9% uptime guarantee.
The company currently maintains both a discount code and a bonus 10% increase in the number of proxies for packages of 10 or more on its web site. Additionally, a discount of up to 20% is applied to each package when a customer pays for up to 12 months at a time. Promotional discount codes are also available on certain other web sites such as warriorforum.com.
Allowed and Not Allowed
MyPrivateProxy offers an extremely unrestrictive service that allows nearly all HTTP/HTTPS protocols as well as connections to popular sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube. There are no restrictions as to what web sites can be accessed through the proxies. However, MyPrivateProxy does not allow use of XRumer, any Torrents, or the SMTP protocol. Webmail such as Yahoo, Gmail, and Hotmail may be accessed through one of the site’s proxies.

Additionally, you cannot use MyPrivateProxy for distribution of malware, for hacking or phishing, for spamming, or for impersonation of any person or entity.
Proxy servers are currently located in 10 different server farms in the United States and Europe. The company is expanding its number of proxy sites in Europe. The biggest datacenter is San Jose, California, with six servers; the newest United States center is New York, NY.
Customer support for billing, technical support, and abuse notification, is available on a 24/7 basis through a web-based chat tool and a webmail form at MyPrivateProxy. Other than the web tools, however, no contact for the company is available on its web site.
The company maintains a Twitter account, @myprivateproxy, and it has responded to a question posed through Twitter.
Free Trial & Money Back
MyPrivateProxy does not provide free trial IP addresses due to abuse in the past. However, the site does offer a three day money back guarantee.
Payment may be made directly or with credit or debit card through PayPal. Payment with credit or debit card may also be made through the 2Checkout system. MyPrivateProxy promises on its web site that other forms of payment will be available soon.
Traffic & Bandwidth
MyPrivateProxy allows up to 100 simultaneous threads per proxy. Bandwidth of the connection is not limited. They have ten datacenters across the United States, each with from 1 to 6 gigabits of traffic.
MyPrivateProxy is one of the most flexible proxy sites, allowing connection to nearly everything except the obvious exceptions. It supports various search engine optimization tools such as Scrapebox, SenukeX, and TweetAdder. The ability to purchase from one to one thousand proxies gives a great scalability to its service offering. With the addition of a United Kingdom datacenter, and the promise of more to come in Europe, it brings international proxies to its service list. Add to those flexible options the fact that there is no limitation on bandwidth, and you have a winning service.
