How do proxy servers work?

A proxy server is a PC with its own one-of-a-kind IP address, to which your web requests go first. For the usage of the internet, an IP address is required. It’s always granted to your computer or other device based on the home address. Such IPs are known as residential ones. When you go searching for anything on the web, a proxy server, as a mediator, is the first one to get your requests. After that, the server finds the info needed and gives it back to you, the user. But the residential IP address has its own certain restrictions, such as geographical ones, which will not allow you to visit some websites that are frozen in your region. In order to overcome this problem, other types of proxies are used.
