Selling bandwidth for money is a constant and stable passive income. It does not require any financial investments. Just install and run the Peer2Profit app. You’ll make money with high speed Internet and sell unused bandwidth at the same time. But to increase your passive income you should put some effort into it.
First, it is necessary to increase the number of devices with our app installed on them and connected to your account. Each of them will sell bandwidth for money, and thus bring you additional income.
The use of proxy servers speeds up the process of getting paid for your bandwidth. A proxy is a separate computer device. It acts as an intermediary on the path of information from you to Internet sites and vice versa. Proxies can be bought, rented or organized by yourself.
By the way, we do not recommend using free proxies. They could be easily blocked, or even be dangerous. Since proxies receive all the information from connected devices, and the owner of free proxies is often unknown, these proxy servers could be run by fraudsters collecting personal data or using devices for criminal purposes.
Each proxy has an IP address. It’s a unique identifier for every device on the Internet, even the one you’re using to read this guide.
You’ll need the IP address of the proxy to connect it to your referral network, and make more money with high speed Internet. Now, we’ll describe in detail how to connect a proxy to the Peer2Profit system.
Disclaimer: all the data given here is only an example.
1. First of all, you need to sign in to your account (by email address) or sign up.
2. Next, select the "My network" item in the main menu, then click "Proxies". "Peers" are your devices already running a Peer2Profit app (smartphones, laptops, PCs, tablets).
3. For now, the list is empty. To add a proxy, click the "Import proxy" button.
4. Next, you can upload a text file with a list of proxies in .txt or .cvs format, or enter the proxy IP address manually. Let's dwell on the second case more particularly.
5. The proxy address should be entered in the format http://realuser:[email protected]:9072. Here we use a sample of an address. This information is provided by your proxy provider and could be requested if necessary.
- “http://” is a data transfer protocol. Speaking shortly, it’s a set of rules by which devices on the network communicate. The most popular protocols are HTTP (as in our example) and SOCKS 5. We will not dwell on their differences and features: the main thing is that only these protocols are supported by our Internet traffic monetization system.
- “realuser” is the username (login). In our case, this is ”realuser”, and your username could be any other.
- “123abc” is the user's password. It’s entered with a colon after the username (login). In this case, it is “123abc”, for you it could be any combination of numbers, letters and special characters. The username and password are needed, so that the proxy address cannot be picked up by a simple enumeration of numbers. Only authorized users can connect to it.
- “@” is the delimiter followed by the proxy IP address and port.
- An IP address is an individual number that is assigned to each device connected to the Internet. It looks like four numbers separated by dots. In our example, it is “188.8.131.52”.
- Connection port. Each device receives huge streams of data via the Internet for various purposes (from transferring actual time and data, emails and so on, to calls, texts, video streams and multiplayer games’ data). The port tells devices where to send certain data packages. The proxy port is specified with a colon after the IP address. For example, our specified port here is “9072”.
6. A blue circle means that the proxy address you entered is being checked.
Please note that the proxy address we invented for the example does not work, and is highlighted in red. It is only needed to show how to sell unused bandwidth using proxies. But the real one, whose data we have partially hidden, is active. So it is indicated by a green circle.
The Peer2Profit algorithm automatically detects non-working ("offline") proxies and highlights them in red. They are useless, since it is impossible to get paid for your bandwidth with such devices. You may remove all such proxies by pressing one key - "Remove all offline proxies".
7. You may track all the unused bandwidth selled through connected devices at any time (“Peers” tab). It could also be done for proxies (“Proxies” tab).
The table displays all the information that you have already entered during astablishing a proxy connection, as well as the time proxy was online. The purple trash button on the right may be used to remove the selected proxy. By clicking the box "Show more info" you’ll see more information about your proxies.
For each one, info about the location of the proxy is displayed: country, city, ISP (Internet service provider). Also in the table you may see how much bandwidth you’ve selled for money.
The type of proxy could help you understand the amount of money you’ll get paid for your bandwidth. Check the "Peers" tab nearby above the table, there’s a list with the traffic rates. As you can see, mobile traffic is the most profitable for purposes of making money with high speed Internet. But proxies of this type are the most expensive.
Now you are aware of the way to make money sharing your Internet with proxies. You could learn more on our blog, for example, how to make more money with high speed Internet using your referral link. So stay tuned!
