6. IP rotation(Cloud service: avoid your server IP from being blacklisted)

Scraping the web on a large scale simultaneously, based on distributed computing, is the modern tendency and the prominent feature of Octoparse. To use it you have to switch from the free edition to any of paid editions. After you upload your configuration project to the cloud, you can choose to perform the extraction concurrently by using cloud servers. If you need to scrape thousands of web pages within a short time then Octoparse cloud service fits you. Standard Edition limits you with only 10 cloud servers, that still greatly speeds up the process of data extraction.

Free Edition:  No

Standard Edition: Yes

Professional Edition: Yes

 

7. IP proxy (Avoid your server IP from being blacklisted)

Does it ever drive you crazy that your IP address has been banned and you cannot access a website if you scrape a website frequently?  It always happens especially when you extract data from business directories, which apply anti-spam measures on recurring IP(s). Octoparse enables you to scrape these websites by rotating anonymous HTTP proxy servers. In the Cloud Extraction mode, Octoparse applies more than 500 of 3rd party proxies for automatic IP rotation. 

 

Free Edition: Manually

Standard Edition: Automatically

Professional Edition: Automatically

 

8. Schedules (Cloud Service: Schedule to extract data as frequently as you like)

 

Free Edition: No

Standard Edition: Yes

Professional Edition: Yes

 

9. API

The Octorparse’s API enables you to extract the project extracted data on time basis: from a datetime till a datetime. 

Free Edition:  No 

Standard Edition: Yes 

Professional Edition: Yes

10. Support
