Learn what VPN is, how to get free VPN access with your hosting account and the way to apply it to your devices.
VPN, which stands for Virtual Private Network, is a way of connecting to a remote server and accessing online content through it instead of doing it directly. Basically, the server acts as a proxy, so assuming that you have a Virtual private network client on your computer or smartphone and you type in the needed login information to be able to connect to the hosting server, you could browse internet sites or download files which you might not be able to access at all directly. Some sites and online services, for example, are available only in particular countries, thus if you are not able to access them, you may use a Virtual private network, or a hosting server, that is located inside that country. In this way it shall look like you are accessing the service/website from the country and you could go around the restrictions. There are businesses which offer VPNs as a standalone service, but we've decided to offer the service with our web hosting packages, which means that if you host your sites on our machines, you'll be able to leverage the VPN access we provide absolutely free.
VPN Traffic in Shared Web Hosting
If you have a shared web hosting
account, for example, you will discover a VPN section inside the Hepsia Cp which is used to take care of all shared accounts. You will find all of the information that you need there - server hostname, login details and a list of the server locations that you could use. We keep expanding the latter everyday, so with a couple of clicks you could access any online content from any location worldwide - the United States, Canada, the Netherlands, etc. With this free service you are able to use an encrypted connection to access social networks which are restricted in your country or streaming services which permit access only from selected countries and your authentic location will never be disclosed because you are not accessing anything directly. The filter that you will find in the VPN section of Hepsia will enable you to improve your browsing speed and to reduce the generated traffic by blocking any undesired content such as large images and adverts.
VPN Traffic in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you get a semi-dedicated server
account, you'll be able to activate the Virtual private network access from your Hepsia Control Panel. In the section dedicated to this service you'll find what settings you will need to use within the VPN client on your end and the login username and password that you need in order to connect to one of the hosting machines which we have worldwide. A comprehensive list of the hosting server locations is available within the same section and we include servers regularly in order to give you more freedom to surf any content. You can benefit from this service in the event that your country blocks the access to social networks and video portals or in the event that some service which you want to try is available only in particular countries. With simply a couple of clicks you'll be able to mask your location and appear to be in Europe, North America, etcetera. As the connection between you and our servers is going to be encrypted, nobody will be able to tell where you really are or what content you access. Hepsia will also enable you to activate a filter which blocks images as to improve loading speed and save traffic.
VPN Traffic in VPS Servers
You can use the VPN access service with any of our Linux VPS web hosting service
if you select Hepsia as the hosting Cp. Once the VPS is set up and you log in, you'll find the host and login details you have to use within the Virtual private network client on your end and you can start browsing content which you cannot access otherwise instantly. We have a number of servers worldwide, so you can effortlessly make it appear as if you're in the Netherlands, the US, Canada, and so forth. In this way you'll be able to access internet sites which your home country is blocking or services that are available just in a handful of countries and you will not have to pay anything more than the standard VPS monthly fee. The filter you can enable from the Virtual private network section of Hepsia could come in handy in case you would like to browse loads of sites because it will compress the images on them and will block any ads, which will speed up your access and will spare you the additional traffic.
VPN Traffic in Dedicated Servers
The free Virtual private network access is provided with all dedicated service
which are ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel and the set up is a breeze. The required details which you have to type in in the Virtual private network client on your end shall be listed in the related section of Hepsia along with a number of servers that you can use as access points to hide your physical location and browse any content that is restricted - either by your home country or by the service provider. Fresh server locations are added regularly in order to provide you with additional options and a larger choice of the online content that you'll be able to access through them, so with several mouse clicks your Internet traffic can be routed through the U.S., the Netherlands or any other country where we have access points. You'll be able to save some traffic and raise your browsing speed by blocking adverts and compressing graphics on the websites with the Virtual private network filter tool, that you'll also discover inside Hepsia.
