What is GoLogin?

GoLogin is a robust solution that not only facilitates the management of multiple online profiles but also stands as a formidable tool for online anonymity. By configuring proxies on GoLogin, users can assign distinct IP addresses to their various profiles, ensuring that each online persona operates in a separate digital space. 

This not only enhances privacy but also opens up new possibilities for tasks such as web scraping, ad verification, and social media management.

In this guide, we will enumerate the steps to empower you with the tools needed to configure your proxy settings on GoLogin. 

Understanding NetNut Proxy Configuration

There are various proxy types so when integrating NetNut proxies, choose HTTP or SOCKS5 protocol.

This is an example of a proxy string for a browser: 

USERNAME-stc-uk-sid-123456789:PASSWORD@gw-am.ntnt.io:5959

 

Step 1: Hostname Configuration

Copy the hostname/server address provided by NetNut

Example: Type gw-am.ntnt.io into the host field if you are using HTTP protocol. Alternatively, type gw-socks-am.ntnt.io for SOCKS5 protocol

Step 2: Port number Configuration

The Port number for NetNut HTTP proxies is 5959 and 9595 for SOCKS5

Step 3: Username Configuration

Username is your login, which you can find in your NetNut account in Settings -> Billing.

Proxy-type is the proxy type that you use. NetNut provides three different proxy types depending on your subscription plan. Your username should have three components including your user ID, type of proxy( residential, datacenter, static) and target country.

  •         dc — datacenter;
  •         res — rotating residential proxy;
  •         stc — static residential proxy.

Country is the country whose IP addresses will be used for connection. You can choose “Any,” in which case any available country will be used, or you can provide the ISO code of a specific country from the list of NetNut’s available countries: e.g., jp (Japan), fr (France).

Example: ticketing123-res-us 

 

This is where you get the proxy username and password from the customer portal. You can also get in touch with your account manager if you’d like additional assistance.

Step 4: Consistent IP session

While NetNut provides rotating IP addresses, you may want a static IP address. This can be useful when you want to maintain your  session via the same IPs. Then you need to incorporate a session id (SID) with your username.

How do you choose a SID?

  • Choose a number between 4 to 8 digits
  •  Ensure the numbers are random and non-sequential to protect your IP address

For example: ticketing123-stc-us-SID-435765

Step 5: Proxy password
