Proxy Servers 101...

A Proxy Server is a computer at your ISP that stores a cache of the most popular web pages, recently accessed by our users (such as yourself) connecting to the Internet.

When you access a web page, the Proxy will look to see if it has a stored copy; if it has, the page will be sent to you directly, without having to be acccessed from it's original location on the Internet. You will receive the page faster because it comes from your local ISP and not from over the Internet.

If the page is not stored on the Proxy, it will be accessed by the Proxy Server from over the Internet and sent to you and the Proxy will now store a copy of the page. If another user accessed that same page soon after, it would be sent directly from the Proxy, faster than it could be normally accessed from the Internet.

The overall effect of using the IBIS Proxy Server will be a
significant increase in your browsing speed.
