How to Enable VPN from your Control Panel
VPN or Virtual Private Network allows you to access the Internet anonymously and protect your privacy online.
This will keep you protected from, for example, ISPs monitoring your internet usage and restricting your bandwidth, or from websites you visit getting your IP address, location, etc.
Through the hosting account Control Panel, you can enable VPN access to the Internet, which you will be able to use through the VPN client installed on your device – e.g. a computer, a smartphone, a tablet, etc.
To enable VPN access, you will need to go to VPN access in the Advanced section of hosting account Control Panel and then click on the Activate VPN Access button.
You will now see a list of our VPN server locations including :
- the USA,
- Netherlands, etc… Keep in mind that we regularly update the list so stay tuned for new locations.
To push your Internet traffic through a certain VPN server, just copy its hostname and paste it in the VPN client on your device. This should be done through the PPTP protocol.
To authenticate the VPN connection details, you will need to use the username of your hosting account and your VPN password. This is your hosting account password, which you can change anytime.
Also, make sure that you also name your VPN connection.
That’s it! Now you will need to enable this VPN connection from your device.
This way, all your incoming and outgoing Internet traffic will start going through our VPN servers instead of your particular easily identifiable internet connection and no one will be able to spy on you online.
By default, we give you a few gigabytes of free VPN traffic per month. To save on your traffic quota, you can also enable our VPN filter, which will automatically filter out ads and compress images for you.
From the VPN Manager, you will also be able to track your VPN traffic usage.
Please note that all traffic usage updates as well as password changes will need up to 10 minutes in order to propagate online.
That’s it! Now you know how to enable VPN access from your hosting account Control Panel.
