What precisely is VPN? Why would you want to use the free VPN access service included with your web hosting account? How do you create a VPN connection?
VPN, which is short for Virtual Private Network, is a means of connecting to a remote hosting server and accessing online content via it as an alternative to doing it directly. Basically, the hosting server acts as a proxy, so provided that you have a Virtual private network client on your computer system or mobile device and you type in the needed login info 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 internet sites and online services, for instance, are available only in particular countries, so in case you aren't able to access them, you may use a Virtual private network, or a hosting server, that's located within that country. This way it'll appear as if you're accessing the service/website from the country and you could bypass the restrictions. There are companies which offer VPNs as an individual service, but we have decided to offer the service with our web hosting packages, which means that if you host your sites on our web servers, you'll be able to leverage the VPN access that we provide absolutely free.
VPN Traffic in Hosting
If you have a hosting account, for instance, you will find a VPN section in the Hepsia Control Panel which is used to take care of all shared accounts. You shall find all the information which you need there - server hostname, login details and a list of the hosting server locations which you may use. We keep expanding the latter all the time, so with several mouse clicks you can access any online content from any location around the globe - the United States, Canada, the Netherlands, etc. With this free service you could use an encrypted connection to access social networks that are restricted inside your country or streaming services that permit access only from specific countries and your authentic location shall never be disclosed because you are not accessing anything directly. The filter that you'll find in the VPN section of Hepsia shall allow you to increase your browsing speed and to lessen the generated traffic by blocking any unwanted content like large images and ads.
