Why Choose ScraperAPI over Bright Data (formerly Luminati)?

Luminati (now Bright Data) provides an excellent proxy infrastructure you can use in your projects. But after building hundreds of scrapers, we understand how complex and painful handling proxies, setting IP rotation, and implementing headless browsers can be.

We’ve developed an API that’ll help you handle all the complexities of scraping the web with one simple GET request. This means you can start scraping sites within minutes.

Need help creating your first scraper? Our support team is equipped to walk you through every step of the way.

All of the Internet’s Data Waiting for Your Call

ScraperAPI is ready to handle all of your data scraping needs- no matter the scale of your project.

1- Never get blocked

Our API rotates your IP with every request from a pool of millions of proxies across over a dozen ISPs and automatically retries failed requests.

2- Get accurate data fast

We automatically prune slow proxies from our pools periodically and guarantee unlimited bandwidth with speeds up to 100Mb/s, perfect for writing speedy web crawlers.

3- Never handle CAPTCHAs

Call ScraperAPI and forget about annoying CAPTCHAs. No need for 3rd party services or any extra software.

4- Automate javascript rendering

Simply set render=true and you’re ready to go. As simple as that.

Do you want more customization? ScraperAPI allows you to customize request headers, request type, IP geolocation, and more.
