Adblocking DNS

We currently offer the use of an adblocking DNS on our residential proxies for the following reasons:

  • Improved Performance: Advertisements can slow down the loading of web pages. By using an adblocker during web scraping, you can eliminate the extra content and scripts associated with ads, resulting in faster page loading times and more efficient scraping.

  • Reduced Noise in Data: Ads can introduce additional elements and noise into the HTML structure of a webpage. If you are scraping data from a website, removing ads helps streamline the extraction process, ensuring that you focus on the relevant content and avoid unnecessary distractions.

  • Minimized Disturbances: Ads often pop up or overlay content, which can interfere with the scraping process. By blocking ads, you reduce the likelihood of encountering disruptive elements that might hinder the proper functioning of your web scraping script.

  • Bandwidth/Data Usage: Advertisements contribute to your overall bandwidth usage when loading a webpage. By blocking ads, you can reduce the amount of data used during the scraping process, which can be beneficial if you are concerned about bandwidth usage and save money.

Currently we only offer the Adblocking DNS feature on our residential proxies and can't customise the filters, but you can toggle the Adblocking feature on (default) or off.
