A proxy server is a server (a computer system or an application) that acts as an intermediary for requests from clients seeking resources from other servers. A client connects to the proxy server, requesting some service, such as a file, connection, web page, or other resource available from a different server and the proxy server evaluates the request as a way to simplify and control its complexity. Proxies were invented to add structure and encapsulation to distributed systems. Today, most proxies are web proxies, facilitating access to content on the World Wide Web and providing anonymity. (More@Wiki)
As depicted in the above image, the Proxy Server (Web Proxy) acts as an intermediate between the client and the actual server. That is, whenever a client (User system) requests any data (web page or files) to the server, the request goes to the proxy server first. The proxy server then forwards the request to the actual server.
And when the server responds back, the response (requested webpage or files) goes to the proxy server and then the proxy server will inturn forwards the requested data to the client machine.
Benifits of using web proxy includes,
Anonymity - It protects your identity by masking it from the server you want to connect to. All that the server thinks is that the request came from the proxy server, thus protecting your identity.
Access to Censored/blocked Content - well you knew it ;) you can access blocked website when accessing throught a web proxy.
Regional offers - Certain websites gives specific offers and discounts only to few geographical locations, which you can avail by using a proxy.
