Yes, you can do that too.
One thing to note, is that sometimes the scraping services do more than just fetch the resulting page - they might also do error handling, or retries, or bypass firewall (Cloudflare), etc., so it can be more reliable.
If you read about ScrapeNinja on their website,
ScrapeNinja handles headless browsers, proxies, timeouts, retries, and helps with data extraction, so you can just get the data in JSON.
Rotating Proxies, Unlimited Volume.
ScrapeNinja uses high quality proxies under the hood, so you don’t spend time managing and monitoring them, and it won’t break your bank.

Getting blocked when scraping using CURL or PHP? ScrapeNinja emulates real Chrome request, without Puppeteer overhead (but JS evaluation is available, too!).
