SOCKS5 Proxies

You can choose the SOCKS5 protocol supported by all our proxy services, including Residential, ISP, Datacenter Mobile, from your self-service panel and change it at any time.

SOCKS Proxy Services

After browsing the proxy services and purchasing the proxy type suitable for your business, you can connect by selecting the SOCKS5 protocol from the Proxynet Self-Service customer panel. Socket 5 connection protocol is supported by almost all our proxy services and you can log in with the fastest and most secure connection method as UDP or TCP.

SOCKS Proxies Overview

SOCKS proxies are tools used to route and secure data transmission over the Internet. Bir proxy sunucusu, kullanıcıların isteklerini almak ve bunları hedef sunuculara iletmek için aracı bir rol oynar. This is how SOCKS proxies are basically explained.

What is SOCKS Proxy?

A SOCKS proxy is a type of server that acts as an intermediary when exchanging data over the Internet. It acts as a bridge between the client and the target server and passes the content accessed by the client over the internet through the SOCKS proxy before providing direct access to the target server. This method increases anonymity by hiding the client’s real IP address and at the same time makes it possible to bypass network restrictions such as firewalls or filters.

What are the Differences between SOCKS4 and SOCKS5?

SOCKS4 and SOCKS5 are types of proxy servers for exchanging data over the internet and there are some important differences between them. Here are the main differences between these two versions:

  1. User Authentication:

    • SOCKS4: Does not support user authentication. It is therefore considered weaker in terms of security.
    • SOCKS5: Offers optional user authentication. This ensures that traffic passing through the proxy is more secure against unauthorized access.
  2. IPv6 Support:

    • SOCKS4: Supports IPv4 addresses only.
    • SOCKS5: Supports both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses. This offers compatibility with more modern network structures.
  3. DNS Resolution:

    • SOCKS4: Performs DNS resolution on the client side, i.e. the client has to know the IP address of the server it wants to connect to.
    • SOCKS5: Can perform DNS resolution on the proxy server. This means that the client only needs to know the domain name of the destination, which makes network traffic more anonymous.
  4. Supported Protocols:

    • SOCKS4: Only supports the TCP protocol, so it is used for TCP-based applications.
    • SOCKS5: Supports both TCP and UDP protocols. This makes it suitable for applications such as email, FTP transfers, VoIP, as well as UDP-based applications such as video streaming and games.
  5. Performance and Flexibility:

    • SOCKS5 offers an overall safer and more performant solution thanks to its advanced features and flexibility, while SOCKS4 represents more limited and older technology.

Depending on users’ needs, these differences often make SOCKS5 the more advantageous option. For this reason, Proxynet offers the latest version of SOCKS5 as a feature in its proxy services.

UDP and TCP Support

SOCKS proxies do not process data packets at the application layer, i.e. they do not examine or modify the data. Instead, it only transfers data from one point to another using TCP or UDP protocols. Thanks to these features, SOCKS proxies are often preferred as a suitable solution for applications that work with different protocols.

SOCKS5 proxy is a type of proxy that supports both TCP and UDP protocols. SOCKS5’s UDP support makes this proxy available not only for web traffic and TCP-based protocols, but also for UDP-based applications. UDP (User Datagram Protocol) is a protocol used for data transmission over the Internet and is especially preferred in applications that require low latency.
