Are you concerned about your privacy while scraping data?
A website can identify you by looking at the IP address that is assigned to your computer by your Internet service provider. However, you can hide your real IP address by using a proxy rotation service. A proxy rotation service assigns you a random IP address every time you request a web page, and the web server can only see the random IP address assigned to you and not your real IP address.
We have secured an exclusive deal with the IP proxy provider nohodo.com, which allows our customers and trial users to easily connect with a free Nohodo proxy account. The free account is limited to 5000 web requests per month (roughly 500 Mb). Other packages are also available to buy should you have larger data/traffic requirements.
Nohodo's proxy service rotates thousands of high performance proxies, so this service is appropriate for professional use and will handle even the largest web scraping jobs.
Sign Up With Nohodo To Get a Free Proxy Account
Please visit your Content Grabber account page to signup to a free nohodo proxy account. Your Content Grabber account page has a link that will take you to a short nohodo sign up form. Once you have signed up, the Content Grabber software will automatically have access to your nohodo proxy account, and you can configure your agents to use the nohody proxy service.
Configure Content Grabber to Use Your Nohodo Proxy Account
The first time you open Content Grabber after having signed up to a nohodo proxy account, the software will ask if you want to use your new proxy account as an application wide proxy. If you choose to use your proxy account as an application wide proxy, all new agents you create will use this proxy account by default. If you choose not to use your proxy account as an application wide proxy, you need to configure your individual agents to use your proxy account.
You can configure an agent to use your nohodo proxy account on the Agent Settings tab in Content Grabber. Choose the 3rd Party proxy source, and then choose Nohodo as the 3rd party proxy provider.
Content Grabber will automatically configure your nohodo proxy the first time you open Content Grabber after having signed up to a nohodo proxy account, but if your nohodo account details change later, you will have to open the Nohodo Settings window to change your proxy details manually.
Your nohodo proxy will be configured to use US proxies by default, but you can change the country in the Nohodo Settings window. Please notice that free nohodo accounts only have access to US proxies.
