VPN, which is short for Virtual Private Network, is a way of connecting to a remote server and being able to access online content via it instead of doing it directly. Essentially, the hosting server acts as a proxy, so assuming that you have a VPN client on your computer or mobile device and you input the needed login information to be able to connect to the hosting server, you can browse internet sites or download files that you may not be able to access at all directly. Some websites and online services, for instance, are available only in particular countries, so in case you aren't able to access them, you can use a Virtual private network, or a hosting server, which is situated within that country. That way it will look like you are accessing the service/website from the country and you could bypass the restrictions. There are firms which offer VPNs as a standalone service, but we have chosen to offer the service with our internet hosting plans, which means that if you host your websites on our machines, you can take advantage of the VPN access we provide absolutely free.
VPN Traffic in Hosting
If you have a hosting account, for instance, you'll find a VPN section inside the Hepsia Control Panel that's used to manage all shared accounts. You will find all the information which you need there - server hostname, login details and a list of the hosting server locations which you could use. We keep expanding the latter all the time, so with several mouse clicks you'll be able to access any online content from any location worldwide - the United States, Canada, the Netherlands, and so on. With this free service you are able to use an encrypted connection to access social networks which are restricted inside your country or streaming services which allow access only from selected countries and your real location will never be disclosed because you are not accessing anything directly. The filter that you shall find in the Virtual private network section of Hepsia will allow you to improve your browsing speed and to reduce the generated traffic by blocking any undesirable content including large images and adverts.
