    Dedicated or VPS is the only way to go with proxy's.

    Also look at optimizing it and preventing hotlinking if you haven't already. Hotlinking of images can eat your bandwidth like crazy. I've seen PHPProxy's using 50mbit as soon as people found it and started linking images with it.

    I guess thats what I am going with my proxy, it got around 20K uniques but its using huge bandwidth and server resources, I would appreciate any links to information about optimizing phproxy.

    Thanks

    Well there isn't much for optimization but 20k unique I imagine you're having images and other files hotlinked. I made a custom change to phpproxy for someone that started generating unique queries per ip + computer. It stopped the hotlinking dead and made their proxy profitable.

    It was pretty simple to just making the q= part actually some unique string hash per ip + comp. So it became 2isdk= for one user next it's jsk29= ect. ect.
    I can't really go much more indepth than that. I also believe someone posted another solution on WHT for preventing hotlinking in PHPproxy.

    Before signing up with a provider, ask them if they are ok with proxy sites. There are some large shared hosts, that offer lots of bandwith but don't like proxy sites (not just because of intensive cpu usage).
