a proxy server is an intermediary server between you and the websites you browse. it’s like a gateway between you and the Internet. When you are using a proxy server, your request first taken by the proxy server. The proxy server examines the request. Then it connects with the real server which contains the website and forwards you the data from that server. Proxy servers provide various levels of functionalities. for example, if you are hosting several websites on your VPS, you can use a proxy server to direct requests to different websites based on the URLs in the requests.
