VPN, which refers to Virtual Private Network, is a way of connecting to a remote server and being able to view online content via it as an alternative to doing it directly. Essentially, the hosting server acts as a proxy, so provided that you have a Virtual private network client on your personal computer or phone and you input the needed login info to be able to connect to the server, you could browse internet sites or download files which you may not be able to access at all directly. Some websites and online services, for example, are available just in certain countries, therefore in the event that you aren't able to access them, you'll be able to use a VPN, or a hosting server, which is located within that country. That way it'll look like you are accessing the service/website from the country and you could get around the restrictions. There are firms which offer VPNs as a standalone service, but we've made a decision to offer the service with our web hosting plans, so if you host your websites on our web servers, you can benefit from the Virtual private network access we provide totally free.
