Deprecating Non-Shield HTTPS Proxy

Deprecating Non-Shield HTTPS Proxy

Up until now, we have been offering an HTTPS Proxy with our QuotaGuard Shield service, however we are deprecating the non-QuotaGuard Shield support for this service in September 2021.

If you wish to continue using the HTTPS proxy, then you would need to migrate to our QuotaGuard Shield service by September 2021.

Therefore, let’s talk about how to move your current HTTPS proxy to the Shield service.

Unfortunately this would require you to switch IP Addresses, as we cannot run our Shield service on the same servers as our Static service.

How can I determine if I am using the HTTPS Proxy?

  • Check if your connection URL is using HTTP or HTTPS.  If it starts with https:// then you are using the HTTPS proxy.
  • Check if your connection URL is using port 9293 or port 9294.  If the URL ends with :9294, then you are using the HTTPS proxy.

What should I do next?

If you are using the HTTPS proxy, please contact us and we can work together to get you migrated over to the new service.
