Python Quick Start Guide - QuotaGuard Static IP

    Table of contents


    When you sign up you will be provided with a unique username and password and a connection string that you can use when configuring your proxy service in your application: 

    All requests that you make via this proxy will appear to the destination server to originate from one of the two static IPs you will be assigned when you sign up.

    We recommend you store the connection string in an environment variable QUOTAGUARD_URL. If you have signed up via the add-ons platform on Heroku, this variable will be automatically set in your production environment.


    Python offers many different ways to make HTTP calls but for API requests we recommend the requests library. It allows you to specify an authenticated proxy on a per request basis so you can pick and choose when to route through your static IP address.

    import requests
     import os
     proxies = {
     "http": os.environ['QUOTAGUARD_URL'],
     "https": os.environ['QUOTAGUARD_URL']
     res = requests.get("", proxies=proxies)
     print res.text

    We have examples for other common libraries as well, but if you can’t find what you are looking for, just send us a Support ticket and we’ll get one sent to you.
