What is a proxy?

A proxy is a server or computer that acts as an intermediary between a user and the internet. Proxies can be used for a variety of purposes, such as to improve network performance, to access blocked websites, or to protect a user’s identity and location. For example, a user can connect to a proxy server, which will then make requests on the user’s behalf and return the results to the user. This can help to hide the user’s IP address and location from the websites they are accessing.
