VPN, which refers to Virtual Private Network, is a means of connecting to a remote server and being able to access online content via it as an alternative to doing it directly. In essence, 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 information to be able to connect to the 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 certain countries, thus if you aren't able to access them, you may use a VPN, or a hosting server, which is situated within that country. In this way it shall look like you are accessing the service/website from the country and you could bypass the restrictions. There are companies which offer VPNs as a standalone service, but we have chosen to offer the service with our internet hosting plans, thus if you host your websites on our servers, you'll be able to take advantage of the Virtual private network access that we provide free of charge.
VPN Traffic in Shared Website Hosting
The VPN access is available by default irrespective of the shared website hosting package you sign up for and you'll discover the settings, the login credentials and a list of our servers inside the Virtual private network section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With only several mouse clicks you'll be able to access any content which is blocked within your country or that is restricted only to a certain country as we have hosting machines which you could use all over the world. That way you'll have the freedom to access social networks or online streaming services no matter what as it will seem that you're in Europe, in North America or any other specific location which you see inside your Control Panel as we keep adding hosting servers on a regular basis. The Virtual private network filter tool, that you could activate whenever you want, will block all unwelcome content including ads or big images, which means less traffic and faster loading speeds for the content that you want to reach.
VPN Traffic in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can use the Virtual private network access service with all of our semi-dedicated hosting accounts and the login details that you should input in the client on your computer will be listed in the VPN section of your Control Panel. That is also the place where you could find all locations where we have hosting machines, so you could easily connect to a machine in North America or Europe, for instance, and whenever you access a site, it will appear that you are inside the country where the hosting machine is. The connection to the VPN servers is encrypted constantly, so your real physical location or what you view or download online will be hidden from any third-party. This will permit you to use any service that is restricted to certain countries or to access any content material which may be restricted in your own country, including certain social networks, blogs, discussion boards or video and audio sharing portals.
VPN Traffic in Dedicated Hosting
You can use the VPN access service with our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages if you select Hepsia for the hosting Control Panel on the order page and after you log in and go to the corresponding section, you'll find the hostname, username and password you have to use within your Virtual private network client so as to connect to our system. We have lots of servers around the world, which you'll be able to use and all of your traffic will be routed through them - Canada, the Netherlands, the United States, etcetera. Because we try to provide you with a better service constantly, we keep including servers to the list. In this way you can easily appear as if you're actually within one of those countries, thus you'll not have any troubles to open a website or access a service, which isn't allowed inside your country or is limited to selected countries throughout the world. To spare you some traffic and to boost your browsing speed, we have also added a special filter that you can activate via Hepsia to block all advertisements and compress pictures on the websites you visit.
