Discover what VPN is, ways to get free VPN access with your hosting account and how to use it on your devices.
VPN, which stands for Virtual Private Network, is a means of connecting to a remote server and being able to view online content via it instead of doing it directly. Essentially, the server acts as a proxy, so provided that you have a VPN client on your personal computer or smartphone and you type in the required login info to be able to connect to the hosting server, you can browse sites or download files which you might not be able to access at all directly. Some websites and online services, for example, are available only in certain countries, therefore in case you are not able to access them, you could use a Virtual private network, or a server, which is situated within that country. That way it'll appear as if you are accessing the service/website from the country and you may get around the restrictions. There are businesses which offer VPNs as a separate service, but we've made a decision to offer the service with our web hosting packages, which means that if you host your sites on our servers, you can benefit from the Virtual private network access which we provide free of charge.
VPN Traffic in Cloud Hosting
If you have a cloud hosting
account, for instance, you will find a Virtual private network section within the Hepsia Cp that is used to deal with all shared accounts. You shall find all of the info that you need there - server hostname, login details and a list of the hosting machine locations which you could use. We keep expanding the latter everyday, so with a couple of clicks you could access any online content from any location around the world - the United States, Canada, the Netherlands, and so forth. With this free service you could use an encrypted connection to access social networks that are restricted within your country or streaming services that enable access only from certain countries and your true location shall never be disclosed simply because you aren't accessing anything directly. The filter that you'll find inside the VPN section of Hepsia will permit you to improve your browsing speed and to limit the generated traffic by blocking any unwanted content such as large images and adverts.
VPN Traffic in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you get a semi-dedicated hosting
account, you'll be able to enable the Virtual private network access from your Hepsia Control Panel. In the section dedicated to this service you shall find what settings you will need to use within the Virtual private network client on your end and the login username and password which you need in order to connect to one of the hosting servers we have worldwide. An extensive list of the hosting machine locations is available within the same section and we add servers all the time in order to give you more freedom to surf any content. You could benefit from this service in the event that your country blocks the access to social networks and video portals or if some service which you want to try is available only within selected countries. With only a few mouse clicks you could mask your location and appear to be in Europe, North America, etc. Because the connection between you and our servers shall be encrypted, nobody will be able to tell where you are or what content material you access.
