Learn what VPN is, learn how to get free VPN access together with your hosting account and how to use it on your devices.
VPN, which stands for Virtual Private Network, is a means of connecting to a remote hosting server and being able to access online content via it instead of doing it directly. Essentially, the server acts as a proxy, so assuming that you have a VPN client on your computer system or mobile device and you input the required login information to be able to connect to the hosting server, you could browse websites or download files that you might not be able to access at all directly. Some internet sites and online services, for instance, are available only in specific countries, thus in the event that you aren't able to access them, you could use a VPN, or a hosting server, that's situated in that country. This way it shall seem like you are accessing the service/website from the country and you may get around the restrictions. There are companies that offer VPNs as a separate service, but we have chosen to offer the service with our web hosting packages, thus if you host your websites on our machines, you can take advantage of the VPN access which we provide absolutely free.
VPN Traffic in Hosting
If you have a hosting
account, for instance, you will find a VPN section within the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to take care of all shared accounts. You'll find all of the info which you need there - server hostname, login details and a list of the server locations which you may use. We keep expanding the latter everyday, so with a couple of clicks you can access any online content from any location worldwide - 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 which permit access only from certain countries and your real location shall never be revealed because you are not accessing anything directly. The filter that you will find in the Virtual private network section of Hepsia shall enable you to boost your browsing speed and to reduce the generated traffic by blocking any undesirable content including large images and advertisements.
VPN Traffic in Dedicated Servers
If you acquire one of our dedicated servers
and you select Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to start using our Virtual private network service with just several clicks. Inside the section dedicated to this feature you'll locate all access points we provide around the world along with the login credentials which you have to use in order to establish the connection between your VPN client and our system. With this service your entire Internet traffic shall be routed through our machines, thus in case you access any content online, it shall appear as if you're inside the same country as the server. That way you could access services which are available only in particular countries or you could go around any restrictions imposed by your own country on social networks, video portals, and so forth. We also present you with a filter tool, that can block banners and ads and compress standard pictures on the internet sites that you visit so as to enable you to browse these sites faster and without producing too much traffic from content you do not need.
