VPN, which stands for Virtual Private Network, is a means of connecting to a remote server and accessing online content via it as an alternative to doing it directly. In essence, the hosting server acts as a proxy, so as long as you have a VPN client on your computer or smartphone and you type in the necessary login info to be able to connect to the server, you can browse internet sites or download files which you might not be able to access at all directly. Some internet sites and online services, for instance, are available only in certain countries, thus in case you are not able to access them, you can use a Virtual private network, or a hosting machine, that's situated inside that country. This way it shall look like you're accessing the service/website from the country and you may go around the restrictions. There are companies which offer VPNs as a separate service, but we've chosen to offer the service with our internet hosting plans, therefore if you host your sites on our machines, you could leverage the VPN access that we provide absolutely free.
