VPN, which stands for Virtual Private Network, is a way of connecting to a remote server and accessing online content through it rather than doing it directly. Basically, the hosting server acts as a proxy, so assuming that you have a Virtual private network client on your personal computer or smartphone and you type in the required login info to be able to connect to the hosting server, you will be able to browse websites or download files which you might not be able to access at all directly. Some internet sites and online services, for instance, are available exclusively in particular countries, thus in the event that you are not able to access them, you could use a Virtual private network, or a hosting machine, that's situated in that country. This way it'll seem like you're accessing the service/website from the country and you can get around the restrictions. There are firms which offer VPNs as a standalone service, but we've decided to offer the service with our internet hosting plans, thus if you host your internet sites on our servers, you could take advantage of the Virtual private network access which we provide free of charge.
