The rotation has to happen due to proxies' chaotic nature. SOAX Residential and Mobile proxies are based on real devices used by real people, thus they might lose good connection due to relocation and signal interference.
At SOAX you may apply the flexible rotation. There are a couple of ways to rotate your IP.
We use time rotation by default. That means, that you may set up rotation time in your dashboard and I will rotate at that time unless it goes offline earlier. You get a stable connection by this rotation since you are given a fresh IP as soon as the previous one goes offline. This rotation is perfect for cases when you need static IP for 0-5 minutes.
Rotation OFF means that you will stay with the same IP until it’s available. The lifetime of each IP is completely unique. This rotation suits cases, when you need to rotate your IP once in 5-10 minutes.
Node Access rotation feature gives you full manual control over a rotation. Even after the IP goes offline you will stay with the same IP. It may come back online at any moment and you will continue working with the same IP. Node Access is a good choice for cases when it’s really important for you to stay with the same IP.

The Sticky IP feature rotates all your ports at the same time. Even if some IPs went offline for a second, you will stay with them just like with the Node Access feature until they rotate at the set time. Good for cases, where you have automated tasks that take no more than 20 minutes.
We do not recommend setting the Sticky IP feature for more than 20 minutes. If you set Sticky IP for an hour and all IPs will go offline after 20 minutes, you will have to wait 40 minutes to get fresh IPs. The Sticky IP feature is free and could be requested at our Customer Support chat.
