Zyte API is replacing Smart Proxy Manager. See Migrating from Smart Proxy Manager to Zyte API.

Restricting Zyte Smart Proxy Manager IPs to a specific region#

Zyte Smart Proxy Manager (formerly Crawlera) can be restricted to use proxies of a particular region in the following ways:

Selecting a region with region-specific API keys#

  1. Make sure that you have a Smart Proxy Manager account.

2. Now, go to your Zyte Smart Proxy Manager Dashboard in Zyte, and click the “Create Account” button:

3. Next, under the “Create New Smart Proxy Manager Account”, select the regions from where you want to use the IPs, and create a new account.

  1. Finally, find the API key for this new user in your project’s Smart Proxy Manager “Setup” page.


Creating region-specific extra accounts doesn’t entail additional charges.

Selecting a region with the header#

Add X-Crawlera-Region to request headers, with a country code in ISO format as the header’s value. For instance, to select a French IP, use it as X-Crawlera-Region: FR (or in lowercase, X-Crawlera-Region: fr).


This header is not available on legacy Crawlera plans (C10, C50, etc.)
