Steps for making a proxy siteproxyWeb Development March 19th, 2008
Making a proxy site of your own in your own domain is not a tough work. But some people, especially newbies, get stucked in the process. So, today, I’ll be telling you some easy steps on how to make a proxy site of your own. However, I’ve assumed that the user have some idea of website management like buying a domain, domain name server setup, uploading files, etc. Also, I’ve used PHProxy for making the proxy site because of it’s easy to use and it’s capability to proxy secure urls like https protocol. Now, if you want to make a proxy site of your own, just follow the following steps:
- Buy a domain name. If you don’t know how to, Read this article on “How to buy a domain name?“. The domain name can be any but it should be short and easy to remember because you don’t want your users to forget your domain name or confuse with others.
- Now, go to Phproxy download link and download the phproxy script. Extract the files into your computer. Now, you will see some files and these files must be uploaded into your domain’s root folder
- If you have an FTP Client, upload the script files into your domain’s root folder (public.html folder in case you have a single domain or your domain is the main domain of your hosting). If you don’t have an FTP client, upload the files through your Cpanel’s File manager.
After the upload is complete, your proxy is ready for use. Now, you can start promoting your proxy and put adsense and other advertisements in it to generate revenue.
