Contest Brief

Currently, I'm working with Python Selenium and attempting to create a script that can consistently log in to websites like vfsglobal, such as "https://visa.vfsglobal.com/gbr/en/fin/login", every minute without triggering their IP blocking mechanism (which kicks in after about 5 attempts from the same IP).

I've purchased proxies from lunaproxy.com and integrated them into my script, but unfortunately, they only seem to work for HTTP, not HTTPS. I'm curious about a solution to this problem. Is it feasible to set up a server (like Google Cloud or AWS) that utilizes a unique IP addresse for each request? Any insights you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

    proxies uses HTTP protocol but your website requires HTTPS connection. It is possible to modify the existing code to use HTTPS protocol.
