If you are thinking of a Elite Proxy, you can get one via two main methods. These being renting or setting up your own. What would be the best situtation to rent or create your own? If you really need multiple IPs, looking at setting up your own proxy server would be a good idea. Just how many IPs is a lot? Anymore than 5 IPs, would mean that I would consider setting up my own. Less than this and you should be ok with renting IPs from someone else. Renting IPs from other people is fine, but usually they come at a much higher price compared to setting up your own. If you need more than just a few IPs, look at investing into your own Elite Proxy instead of renting from someone else. You will save a bundle of money.
