VPN, which refers to Virtual Private Network, is a means of connecting to a remote server and being able to view online content through it instead of doing it directly. Basically, the hosting machine 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 hosting machine, 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 example, are available exclusively in specific countries, thus in the event that you are not able to access them, you can use a Virtual private network, or a hosting machine, that is situated in that country. This way it will appear as if you're accessing the service/website from the country and you may go around the restrictions. There are firms that offer VPNs as a separate service, but we've made a decision to offer the service with our web hosting packages, so if you host your sites on our machines, you could leverage the Virtual private network access that we provide at no extra cost.
