A proxy server acts as a mediator between the user machine and the server. There are different types of proxy servers are available. Some of them are: transparent, anonymous and elite proxy servers. 

Transparent proxies are not capable of hiding your ip address but it is also has its own importance. Some people may use these servers to restrict some services on the network. Sometimes these servers can increase your browsing speed by storing frequently used pages in the local cache of the server.
