Find what VPN is, learn how to get free VPN access along with your hosting account and how to apply it to your devices.
VPN, which stands for Virtual Private Network, is a way of connecting to a remote hosting machine and accessing online content through it rather than doing it directly. Basically, the hosting server acts as a proxy, so provided that you have a VPN client on your personal computer or smartphone and you input the required login info to be able to connect to the hosting machine, you will be able to browse sites or download files which you may not be able to access at all directly. Some sites and online services, for instance, are available exclusively in certain countries, thus in the event that you are not able to access them, you may use a Virtual private network, or a hosting server, that is situated in that country. That way it'll look like you are accessing the service/website from the country and you could get around the restrictions. There are companies which offer VPNs as a standalone service, but we've made a decision to offer the service with our internet hosting packages, so if you host your sites on our web servers, you can take advantage of the Virtual private network access that we provide 100 % free.
VPN Traffic in Shared Website Hosting
If you have a shared website hosting account, for instance, you shall find a VPN section inside the Hepsia Control Panel which is used to take care of all shared accounts. You'll find all the information you need there - server hostname, login details and a list of the hosting machine locations that you'll be able to use. We keep expanding the latter all the time, so with a couple of clicks you can access any online content from any location around the world - the United States, Canada, the Netherlands, and so forth. With this free service you can use an encrypted connection to access social networks which are restricted in your country or streaming services that permit access only from certain countries and your real location will never be disclosed since you are not accessing anything directly. The filter which you'll find within the VPN section of Hepsia will permit you to boost your browsing speed and to decrease the generated traffic by blocking any unwelcome content like large images and adverts.
