It would depend on the proxy server. I suggest that once you have selected one make sure to visit our homepage to see if it passes your IP along.

I do not suggest to anyone to use "free" or "public" proxy servers unless they are aware of the risks. If you choose to use a proxy server make sure to visit the homepage of this site to see if the proxy server really hides your IP address.

Visit the homepage without using a proxy server to determine what your IP address is. After you've configured your browser to use the proxy server, visit the homepage again. Make sure that your "real" IP address is not displayed. Sometimes you'll see that the proxy server was detectable and the real IP address was able to be determined.

The admin should not be able to know your real IP address.
