10 Amazing WordPress Proxy Plugins

In computer terminology, a proxy server or proxy is a computer system or application or server that works as an first layer for requests from clients seeking resources from other servers. For example, A client computer or user makes a connection to the proxy server, requesting some service from a different server and then the proxy server executes the client’s request as way to simplify and control its complexity.

You can use proxies for multiple purposes such as: to save bandwidth, to prevent downloading the same content multiple times, to bypass website restrictions at work, to scan outbound content, to scan transmitted content for malware before deliver, to audit usage, to speed up access to resources using cache and much more… We divide proxies in four terms, for example, performance enhancing proxies, reserve proxies, open proxies and forward proxies.
