Discover what VPN is, the way to get free VPN access together with your hosting account and how to apply it to your devices.
VPN, which is short for Virtual Private Network, is a way of connecting to a remote hosting machine and being able to view online content through it as an alternative to doing it directly. Basically, the hosting server acts as a proxy, so provided that you have a VPN client on your computer or smartphone and you enter the necessary login info to be able to connect to the hosting server, you can browse websites or download files that you may not be able to access at all directly. Some websites and online services, for instance, are available just in particular countries, therefore in case you are not able to access them, you'll be able to use a VPN, or a hosting server, that is situated inside that country. In this way it shall appear like you're accessing the service/website from the country and you can get around the restrictions. There are businesses which offer VPNs as a standalone service, but we have decided to offer the service with our internet hosting packages, therefore if you host your sites on our web servers, you could benefit from the Virtual private network access that we provide absolutely free.
VPN Traffic in Web Hosting
If you have a web hosting account, for example, you shall locate a VPN section in the Hepsia Control Panel that's used to manage all shared accounts. You'll find all of the info that you need there - server hostname, login details and a list of the server locations that you may use. We keep expanding the latter all the time, so with a few clicks you can access any online content from any location around the world - the United States, Canada, the Netherlands, etc. With this free service you can use an encrypted connection to access social networks which are restricted inside your country or streaming services which allow access only from specific countries and your real location will never be revealed as you aren't accessing anything directly. The filter that you shall find inside the VPN section of Hepsia shall enable you to improve your browsing speed and to reduce the generated traffic by blocking any unwelcome content like large images and adverts.
