Rampage Residential Deep Dive

Published: 2024-05-29

Written By Owen Crisp

Introduction

In this guide, we’ll look deeper into Rampage Residential and some of the provider's technical specifics. Rampage Residential is our own network of residential proxies, offering high performance for a lower price than most providers.

Company Overview

Rampage offers a one-stop proxy mediation service, allowing users to use their favourite proxy providers in one streamlined dashboard. Through our dashboard, users can purchase and generate a variety of providers at a much cheaper “pay-as-you-go” rate compared to direct sources. Customers can purchase as little as 1GB up to 1TB and beyond from some of the largest upstream providers or purchase one of our three in-house providers (Rampage Residential, Rampage Mobile, and Rampage Core).

IP Availability and Supply

Rampage Residential is derived from a supply of over 5 million unique IP addresses. Here’s a list of popular countries with good IP availability:

  • United States
  • Pakistan
  • Ukraine
  • Morocco
  • France
  • Russia
  • Great Britain
  • South Africa

All IP addresses are sourced ethically from real residential devices.

Proxy Speed and Performance

We tested each residential provider so that you don't need to. Rampage endeavours to create fair, thorough, and reproducible tests to ensure each provider can be compared against another. Please note, your results may vary based on your individual factors when setting up.

Using a server hosted in a German datacenter, we tested 10,000 rotating proxies across 5 popular locations. These locations were picked to represent popular locations and give global coverage. The locations we used to test all providers were the following:

  • United States of America
  • United Kingdom
  • Canada
  • Germany
  • Hong Kong

Our testing suite checks the proxy connection against IpInfo to remain as impartial as possible. We use the information collected from the request, along with IP enrichment data from IpInfo to provide a clear picture of the proxy.

In addition to the usual metrics, we have provided the standard deviation of the response times. A smaller standard deviation suggests that the scores are tightly clustered around the mean, indicating greater consistency or precision in the measurements.

Finally, this script also records the number of unique IP addresses per region tested, as this can be used as a judgement for the diversity of the IP pool. Here’s the results from the tests of Rampage Residential:

Finally, we’ve collected the averages across all 5 geo’s:

  • Fastest Proxy Speed: 0.64 seconds
  • Lowest Proxy Speed: 14.04 seconds
  • Average Proxy Speed: 1.89 seconds
  • Standard Deviation: 1.58 seconds
  • Success Rate: 98.05%

Location and Targeting Options

Rampage Residential supports four precision targeting methods: ISP, City, State, and Country. This allows complete control of the proxy location. Please note that due to the dynamic state of residential proxies, we can not guarantee 24/7 coverage, especially in remote areas. Here are some examples of this targeting and proxy formatting:

Country, with a default static session time: {username}:wifi;gb;;;@proxy.rampageproxies.com:9001

City/State, with a default static session time: {username}:wifi;us;;florida;miami;@proxy.rampageproxies.com:9002

Rotation

The default session time of these proxies is 60 seconds, which we can extend at your request or be controlled using a session string variable. Please note that this session time varies depending on the availability of the node and its status. Should a node go offline, the IP will no longer be available. The server will attempt to reconnect. Failing this, the IP will rotate. With Rampage Residential, we can apply session extensions per package, allowing your sessions to remain open for your specified duration and as long as the node remains accessible. The proxy will rotate if the node goes offline before the specified session length, and the server cannot reconnect to that particular node in the next 60 seconds.

This means that “static” proxies do not hold the IP indefinitely, but for up to a set timeframe.

Pricing

Pricing of the Rampage Residential proxies will vary depending on your current membership level and further for bulk purchases. For a non-subscription customer (no Rampage Retail membership), prices start from $6.3 per gigabyte and drop down to $4.40 per gigabyte for Retail subscribers. In bulk and committed purchases, prices can become even lower. Please contact us directly for such pricing.

Suggested Use Cases

Rampage Residential offers a versatile proxy that can be used in many circumstances and situations. We’re proud to provide a proxy with such capabilities. Here’s a non-exhaustive list of what Rampage Residential could be used for:

  • Managing social media accounts, ensuring activities appear to come from genuine users.
  • SEO monitoring and SERP analysis, used to observe search engine results from different geographical locations.
  • Ad verification, to check the display of ads and ensure they are shown where intended.

Other use cases include e-commerce scraping, sneaker botting, and social media advertising.

Pros and Cons

Pros of Rampage Residential

The biggest pro Rampage Residential (aside from being our source of IPs) offers is the price to performance. Rampage Residential will consistently outperform more expensive providers time and time again. Inclusive of precision targeting, it’s our best value offering for a residential provider with such features. It provides a very “all in one” type solution for various use cases at its price point, adding to its versatility.

Another highlighted pro of Rampage Residential is its reliability. These proxies pass some of the most challenging sites and handle antibot/captchas with ease- making them highly versatile for various use cases.

With these proxies in our supply, we at Rampage almost have more control over certain factors (such as rotation time). For example, we can alter the session time indefinitely for a sticky session. These proxies support HTTP, HTTPS, SOCKS5, and UDP.

Cons of Rampage Residential

Rampage Residential comes with very few downsides. One to mention is that users cannot access any payment processors or email providers with these proxies. These restrictions are in place to prevent unethical use of the proxies/IPs.

As previously mentioned, you may find IP availability restrictions in remote areas. Generally speaking, the larger the country/state/city, the better the supply.

Executive Summary

Rampage Residential is the pinnacle residential offering within Rampage's services, providing unparalleled value and performance. With a focus on quality and affordability, Rampage Residential boasts a substantial supply of over 5 million unique IP addresses sourced ethically from real residential devices.

Critical features of Rampage Residential include its proxy speed and performance, precision targeting options, and dynamic rotation capabilities. The proxies can easily handle even the most challenging sites and anti-bot measures, offering reliability across various use cases.
