Learn what VPN is, learn how to get free VPN access with your hosting account and how to use it on your devices.
VPN, which is an abbreviation for Virtual Private Network, is a service which allows you to go around any restrictions by country that sites or online services could have. By using this service, your Internet connection goes through a third-party hosting server, so you connect only to it and every website you open is accessed using the hosting server Ip, making it a proxy. Because your actual Internet protocol address or location are never disclosed, using a VPN shall also increase your security when you access any content on the web because it will appear that the VPN hosting server is the one opening a site, for instance, and not you directly. This way you'll be able to access content that's restricted either by the provider which offers it or by your Internet provider. We provide VPN access through numerous locations around the globe as a part of all our hosting plans and if your internet sites are accommodated on our servers, you can employ this service without paying anything on top of the hosting fee.
VPN Traffic in Shared Website Hosting
If you have a shared website hosting account, for example, you shall locate a VPN section inside the Hepsia Cp that's used to handle all shared accounts. You will find all the info that you need there - server hostname, login details and a list of the hosting server locations which you can use. We keep expanding the latter constantly, so with a couple of mouse clicks you can access any online content from any location worldwide - the United States, Canada, the Netherlands, etc. With this free service you can use an encrypted connection to access social networks which are restricted in your country or streaming services that allow access only from certain countries and your authentic location will never be disclosed as you aren't accessing anything directly. The filter which you shall find inside the VPN section of Hepsia shall permit you to maximize your browsing speed and to reduce the generated traffic by blocking any undesired content like large images and adverts.
