Learn what VPN is, learn how to get free VPN access along with your hosting account and how to apply it to your devices.
VPN, or Virtual Private Network, is in essence a proxy set up on a remote hosting server and when you connect to it, all your Internet traffic will go through it. In this way if you open an internet site, the IP address which shall be accessing the website shall be the one of the hosting server and not your own. This service allows you to open websites, download files or access online services that are restricted just to certain counties assuming that the hosting machine that your connection goes through is located in one of those countries. Using a Virtual private network will also raise your online security because you will not be revealing your actual Ip and location when you access any content on the internet. Even though there are businesses that offer only VPN services, we've decided to include Virtual private network access to all web hosting plans that we offer and at no additional charge, so you'll be able to use the service for free if you already host your sites on our hosting servers.
VPN Traffic in Hosting
If you have a hosting account, for example, you shall find a Virtual private network section in the Hepsia Control Panel which is used to manage all shared accounts. You'll find all of the info you need there - server hostname, login details and a list of the hosting server locations which you'll be able to use. We keep expanding the latter everyday, so with a few 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 that are restricted within your country or streaming services which permit access only from certain countries and your true location shall never be disclosed since you aren't accessing anything directly. The filter that you'll find within the Virtual private network section of Hepsia shall permit you to increase your browsing speed and to lessen the generated traffic by blocking any unwelcome content such as large images and adverts.
