Learn what VPN is, learn how to get free VPN access together with your hosting account and the way to apply it to your devices.
VPN, which is an abbreviation for Virtual Private Network, is a service which enables you to go around any restrictions by country which sites or online services may have. Using this service, your Internet connection goes through a third-party hosting machine, so you connect only to it and each site which you open is accessed using the hosting machine Internet protocol address, making it a proxy. Because your actual IP or location are never disclosed, using a VPN will also increase your security when you access any content on the Internet since it will appear that the Virtual private network server is the one opening an internet site, for example, and not you directly. This way you can access content that's restricted either by the provider that offers it or by your Internet provider. We offer VPN access through various locations throughout the world as part of all of our internet hosting plans and if your websites are accommodated on our servers, you'll be able to take advantage of this service without having to pay anything on top of the hosting fee.
VPN Traffic in Shared Hosting
If you have a shared hosting account, for instance, you shall discover a Virtual private network section within the Hepsia Cp that's used to manage all shared accounts. You will find all the info which you need there - server hostname, login details and a list of the server locations that you'll be able to use. We keep expanding the latter constantly, so with a few mouse clicks you could access any online content from any location worldwide - the United States, Canada, the Netherlands, and so on. With this free service you could use an encrypted connection to access social networks which are restricted within your country or streaming services that enable access only from specific countries and your actual location shall never be disclosed since you are not accessing anything directly. The filter that you'll find within the VPN section of Hepsia will enable you to improve your browsing speed and to decrease the generated traffic by blocking any undesired content such as large images and adverts.
