    Post How to choose: a VPN application or a VPN server?

    How to choose: a VPN application or a VPN server?

    First, what does VPN mean?
    VPN (Virtual Private Network) - technologies that allow you to get private access to the network, by changing the IP address and increasing privacy due to data encryption.

    What types of VPN exist?
    VPN can be divided into three main types: Public VPN service, Private server for VPN, and Private VPN server.

    Let's find out which VPN is suitable for you, considering all their pros and cons.

    A public VPN service is an application for your device with the possibility to choose the country and the VPN server you are connecting to.

    - Usability: download, install and use.
    - Free application (most often).

    - Connection speed and quality: depends on the number of users connected to the server.
    - Functional restrictions: the free period may be limited.
    - Privacy risks: your data is not protected from leakage.
    - The number of devices to connect is limited: each employee of the department needs to install a separate application.
    - Technical support: most services either do not have it or it is available due to business hours.

    Private server for VPN is your own server where you can set up a VPN.

    - Consistent service and no "neighbors": it is available to you and those you grant access to.
    - High privacy: “No-logs” policy - no data about your server operations is logged or stored.
    - Ability to connect multiple devices, for example, for the entire department.
    - 24/7 technical support.

    - The service is paid (with a free trial period).
    - Technical skills are required for the VPN configuring on a dedicated server.

    Private VPN server is your own server, with a VPN, already configured.

    - Consistent service, high confidentiality, the ability to connect multiple devices, 24/7 technical support - like a Private server for VPN.
    - Easy to install (almost like a VPN application): the provider sets up the VPN for you on your private server.

    - The service is paid (with a free trial period).

    1. Free applications do not guarantee your privacy and security of personal data.
    2. Advanced solutions are accessible without technical skills.
    3. You can choose the appropriate service according to your budget, needs, and technical background.

    So, you can assess the usability and customization of the Private VPN server during the trial period with just two clicks: follow the link and choose "Free 24h test". 24/7 technical support is available in Russian and English languages (telegram chat or ticket). Any electronic means and cards from anywhere in the world are accepted for payment.

    Follow our blog, as you can find all the news, educational materials, and discounts on LLHOST INC. products.

    This is definitely NOT SPAM, is this?

    The world calendar is full of funny and, sometimes, very strange holidays. The IT industry is no exception. The first week of May is filled with interesting events based on unusual stories.

    For example, May 3rd is considered spam text's "birthday". The story begins in 1978, when about 400 Arpanet users received the same advertising message from DEC, the electronics manufacturer. Nevertheless, the meaning of annoying advertising mailings became synonymous with "spam" in 1986. Dave Rhodes, with admirable tenacity, began promoting the new Ponzi scheme in emails that were compared to the ubiquitous ads of canned food SPAM (short for "Spiced ham") in the aftermath of the World War II.

    Let's also remember the “love fever” that plunged the world on May 4th, 2000. The virus worm from a message with the subject “IloveYou” spread fantastically quickly: “love” messages were sent automatically to all contacts from the address book. Guinness World Records confirmed "I Love You" virus as the most destructive computer virus in the world. The assumed damage caused by "I Love You" worm is estimated at up to $10 billion.

    Probably, this story also inspired “Intel” to declare World Password Day on the first Thursday of May. The idea of ​​the holiday is simple: all users are invited to pay attention to their online security and to update their passwords, as the majority of users still constantly forget those recommendations. The most common password in the world is "123456" and the shortest is just one character. People often use the same passwords for different accounts.

    would like to thank all the subscribers. The “secret password” of the day - is the promocode “NOSPAM”. Enter it in the special field when ordering any virtual (OVS) or VPN server and get a 40% discount!*

    Thank you all for your attention!

    *Promo code can be applied for 3 periods of monthly billing cycle and will expire on May 15th, 2022.

    VPN for your business: is it HYPE or a MUST?

    The problem of data leakage and cyberattacks is one of the most relevant today. Not only huge corporations, but also small companies are at risk. According to VseVPN, the damage from cybercrime will reach 6 trillion dollars in 2022. Getting your own VPN server is the key solution and the first step to ensure your company security.

    VPN has been used for years to provide secure access to the corporate systems, and the range of its advantages has increased exponentially. But why should a business consider these VPN solutions? The reasons are next:
    1. To enhance your online privacy by Internet connection encryption.
    2. To change your virtual location to bypass any regional locks.
    3. To ensure the privacy of personal data, both yours and your customers.
    4. To provide access to intranet websites and corporate systems, limited by the local network.
    5. To increase protection of public Wi-Fi networks (cafes, airports, hotels, etc.), used while working remotely, but the risk of traffic interception is especially high.

    A VPN server for business should have the following specs:
    - a dedicated static IP address with a dedicated server (in most cases, IP address can be changed each time you connect to VPN, or be transferred to other users),
    - multiple devices' accessibility (in this case, the company will have access to the register of websites visited by employees),
    - flexible payment system (bank cards of any country and in any currency, as well as other payment systems, including cryptocurrency),
    - free trial period of the server,
    - guaranteed no-logs policy due to no client tracking.

    A corporate VPN, even for a small business, is not as expensive as it might seem. You do not need to purchase expensive equipment, both server configuring and tech support are for free.

    So, LLHOST INC. offers VPN servers with ready-made solutions for fast and secure connection for any device running any OS (Windows, Linux, MacOS, Android), for private use as well as corporate with 24/7 support. Kill switch function included will protect your customers' data by blocking all Internet traffic in case of a sudden disconnection from the network. Promocode “VPN4BUSINESS” guarantees a 40% discount for any Private VPN Server.*

    VPN servers save your company's reputation and prevent data breach legal issues due to advanced security protocols and dedicated servers. You can also run different countries market research and get access to regional blocked business services by changing your virtual location. In addition, your employees can connect to your servers and work remotely from anywhere in the world.

    Do you really need a VPN for business? You have to decide. But in case you have employees working remotely, business documents are stored online, or you need to provide access to business systems available on your company's intranet only, then a VPN is a must for your company.

    *Terms and conditions:
    1. This discount can be applied for any Private VPN Server.
    2. It is available for 3 periods of monthly billing cycle.
    3. The promo code is valid until May 22th, 2022.
    4. It is active for an unlimited number of users.

    Lightbulb Who is watching us on the Internet?

    Who is watching us on the Internet?

    Information technologies have been developing at blistering speed since the beginning of the 21st century. Everyone is talking about the need for the Internet in our life whether it is work or leisure, study, financial management or even getting quality medical care. Datareportal reports that the worldwide web has 4.8 billion users, which is 63% of the world's population. Their number is increasing by 700,000 new users every day.

    The Internet offers incredible opportunities, but at the same time it is a tool of limitation for us. Our personal data and habits are logged. Most people do not take into consideration that all their network activities are not private at all. But even if you are not doing anything illegal, your privacy must be respected.

    Both Internet security and confidentiality are such tricky subjects. Ondřej Vlček, CEO of Avast, believes that the ability to connect to the Internet safely is an important human right.

    This article will highlight who has access to data about our actions on the Internet, and what can be countered with this.

    Internet providers
    They have access not only to the websites addresses you visit, but also to whom you write emails, what do you do on social networks. All your entered passwords can easily be tracked by an Internet service company.

    Wi-Fi network administrators
    All your interactions on the Internet are at a glance: websites, emails, social networks (even in Incognito mode).

    Government organizations
    Law enforcement may request data from your ISP about your online activities to prevent any cybercrime.

    Operating Systems
    The computer and phone OS also track your internet activity and location (in case the function is on).

    Search engines
    Search drives such as Google or Yandex collect data all the time your account is enabled, building your interests profile to personalize ads.

    Many websites use cookies to track user traffic and activities, as well as ads campaigns promotion.

    Most apps, both on your phone and on your computer, have access to your location, accounts, and email address by request in your privacy settings.

    Attackers use hundreds of tricks to get data of your personal accounts, bank cards, etc.

    To avoid network stalking, you need to stop using computers and gadgets and, most importantly, the Internet in general, which is impossible for anyone of our time. And if minimizing vulnerability on the Internet seems something incomprehensible to you, then we, as developers of digital products, share all the knowledge and tools necessary for a comfortable and safe online experience. Following these tips, you can enhance the protection of your personal data on the Internet right now.

    Two-factor authentication (2FA)
    2FA is a sign-in verification feature with a code, thus creating an additional layer of security. It requires entering a one-time code from the SMS message received on your phone, to sign in your account.

    Password Manager
    This application is created for the safe storage of your passwords. Everyone has so many accounts nowadays that it is simply impossible to remember all the passwords. Using any password manager, only a password is enough (to enter the manager itself). Many of them have key generator features to create unique, difficult to crack passwords.

    VPN server
    VPN (Virtual Private Network) creates an encrypted "tunnel" between your computer or phone with a server, so it is very difficult, and sometimes impossible, to intercept your traffic. If you connect to a public Wi-Fi network that is not password protected (or with an accessible password), you become vulnerable to traffic interception. Your own VPN server enhances your Internet security, and allows bypassing geographic restrictions (see more about VPNs differences and use here and here). Get connected using promo code STAYSAFE from LLHOST INC. and enjoy a 30% discount on any VPN server (this offer is valid until June 3rd, 2022, for three periods of monthly ordering).

    Your online activities and interests are valuable data that can be used against you. It is your decision to protect your privacy or not, being armed with the knowledge and tools described in the article, in order to block access to your personal information from intruders as much as possible.

    Red face Stranger things or a nightmare of the streets in the 1980s

    Stranger things or a nightmare of the streets in the 1980s.

    Yes, we've been waiting for this too, and it's finally here!

    The premiere of Stranger Things season 4, one of the most awaited TV shows of 2022 took place today.

    In the summer of 2016, when the first season released, no one could have imagined how much we would love this mystical story about a girl with superpowers, role-playing children and otherworldly forces. As a result, the series awarded many times, six of which were Emmy Award.

    The first volume of the fourth season is already available on Netflix. The remaining episodes can be watched since July 1st.

    The brothers Duffer jokingly call it their “Game of Thrones” because of the abundance of storylines and special effects, thanks to which each of the nine episodes pleases us with a significant duration (more than 60 minutes). In addition, the creators shared that the mystery of why Hawkins is constantly becoming the epicenter of supernatural events will finally be revealed.

    Netflix marked the premiere with the preview of the first episode of season 4, which the invited guests rated as “the scariest debut episode of the series.” Matt and Ross even hinted that Stranger Things could get a sequel or spin-off, outside the current plot and cast. It sounds tempting, because we are already prisoners of the Upside Down world, waiting for the dénouement of fantastic and confusing adventures of strange children.

    LLHOST INC. was also dragged to the alternate dimension. Crossing over the Upside Down world with the promo code “THEUPSIDEDOWN”* you can purchase any LLHOST INC. services with a 40% discount for three months. But remember, you can't spend more than two weeks being there, otherwise someone will appear who believes that we have already lost the new season. The first five players who enter his name ** in the promo code field will get a year of VPN for free to connect with the world!

    * Valid only for the monthly billing period, expires on June 10th, 2022.
    ** In English, in all caps, valid only for the monthly payment period, expires on June 10th, 2022.

    Little tip: If Netflix is blocked in your region, install a VPN and enjoy watching your favorite series!

    Beware: spy apps!

    Smartphones as well as various gadgets play a great role in our everyday life. The variety of features and options opens up new opportunities, so voice calls take less than a half of the time we spend with mobile phones. At the same time, those features hide many risks, because the input data we bring into our devices is quite large.

    To increase online security and privacy is one of LLHOST INC. key targets. That is why we bring it up again. We have posted an article earlier referring to the fact that many applications get access to your personal data.

    The most dangerous of them are spyware/stalkerware. What it is? How to recognize it and to prevent? What are the methods of protection? - those are our today's article about.

    Stalkerware is malware that tracks and transmits data to a third party without the user’s consent and knowledge.

    As a rule, such applications are covertly running in the background, without displaying any activity to the user. This is a direct violation of data privacy policy, and is legally considered virus software.

    According to the NortonLifeLock research, the number of devices infected with spyware has increased by 63% in 2022. Russia, Brazil and the United States of America (USA) are the top three of the most affected countries in the world. In Europe, that top belongs to Germany, Italy and the UK.

    Why is spyware so dangerous?
    Eva Galperin, the Director of Cybersecurity at the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), says that spyware is particularly harmful as our smartphones are an extremely rich data source.
    These apps are capable of the following actions:
    - track your location,
    - listen and record your telephone conversations,
    - get passwords to the social media accounts you access from your phone,
    - browse photos and videos in the gallery,
    - check your browser history,
    - collect calendar info (scheduled meetings and events),
    - and even read any messages (email, text messages), including messengers and social media!

    You can download a stalker app disguised as applications with another functionality, including system ones, or install any application with embedded spyware. Please remember that you can be provided with a phone already affected by stalkerware.

    How to detect a spy app on my device?
    Stalkerware actively use the resources of the device to connect to the servers that control their work. Since they all are constantly running in the background, we have the following warning signs:
    - strong heating of the device,
    - unexpected battery drain,
    - increase of mobile data usage,
    - device malfunctions, system crashes, and device failures have become more frequent,
    - unusual pop-up messages and notifications,
    - location service is always turned on,
    - personalized device settings change: new icons, search engine or home page,
    - device runs out of space quickly.

    How to protect your device from stalkerware?
    There are few simple steps you can take to help users reduce the risk of spyware affecting your devices:
    Password. Set up a strong password on your phone of at least 8 characters, consisting not only of letters, but also numbers. Don’t share them with anyone either! Change your password regularly, every few months.
    Antivirus. Install an antivirus that can recognize the “spy”.
    VPN service. Configure a VPN for your online privacy protection. Private VPN server is able to anonymize user data by changing location and encrypting traffic.*
    Applications. Download apps only from official sources, review the permissions of already installed applications.
    Access. Do not leave your phone unattended. Your safety is up on you!

    Download Day or Mozilla Foundation Guinness World Record

    Download Day or Mozilla Foundation Guinness World Record.

    Hello forum mates!
    Our publications cover a wide range of IT-related subjects. Today, let's remember June 17th, 2008, the official release date of Mozilla Firefox 3 browser, called Download Day 2008 (to specify, the last Firefox version is 101.0.1 released on June 9th, 2022). Why is this event so appealing to go back to after so many years? The thing is that Firefox has established a world record for the most downloaded program throughout the day. Guinness World Records controlled the increase in distribution downloads for 24 hours, which exceeded 8 million downloads. It took them several days to check the data, and just at the beginning of July they confirmed 8,002,530 downloads in 24 hours, which equates to 83 Tb of downloaded data with the transfer rate 20 Gbps. For comparison, Opera 9.50 has been downloaded 4.7 million times within five days of its release.

    To celebrate the record, hundreds of parties were held worldwide, the Internet was filled with hashtags: #Firefox3, #DownloadFestival, #WorldRecord and #DownloadDay. Each participant received an award of gratitude from Mozilla. The top three most active participants included the United States (3,252,673 users), Germany (852,432) and Japan (533,369).

    As a result of this event, Firefox has become the most popular browser in the world, with a worldwide share of over 20%. That was until November 2011, when Google Chrome, according to StatCounter, for the first time in its history, took the lead in the global marketplace for web-compatible PC browsers.

    We look forward to the time when LLHOST INC. register its world records. Our team works diligently on every project to ensure that the end product appeals to every client.

    How to choose a VPS?

    We have already covered what a VPN service is, what are the differences between a VPN application, Private Server for VPN and Private VPN Server, as well as their pros and cons. This article is on VPS: what they are for, how do they differ, and how to choose the right one.

    VPS (Virtual Private Server) is a partitioned piece of a physical server that acts like its own server.
    The technology looks like this: a physical server is divided into several partitions, and the server software is configured on each of them, that makes each virtual server work independently. This means that the power of each virtual server is determined by technical specs: RAM, disk space, processor, etc. and do not affect each other's performance in any way.

    What is a virtual server for?
    VPS servers can be used for different tasks such as:
    • web development: design, develop, test and deploy software products;
    • VPN service: install your own software and configure a VPN server to improve privacy and business information protection;
    • online stores: a virtual server allows you to store a large amount of data and host loaded projects;
    • Information portals: databases, mailboxes, etc. on a virtual server guarantee full management and security of users' personal data;
    • video surveillance system: the best option for backing up a streaming video archive;
    • remote desktop (RDP/VNC): a computer that can be accessed anywhere in the world from any device (laptop, tablet or smartphone);
    • school portals: electronic control system and remote access to educational materials for all educational program participants;
    • storage of personal data: place your photo, video, music, app archive with guaranteed privacy, as well as the ability to sync all used devices through one.

    Pros and Cons of VPS.
    • guaranteed resources,
    • the ability to install your own software,
    • flexible server settings,
    • root access to the server.
    • technical skills are required for the managing.

    What will help you choose a VPS?
    Those technical specs are important when choosing a server:
    Determine the amount of uploaded data, considering all the projects deployed on the server (always with a margin, as your project will grow).
    Storage technology
    It can be HDD (Classic Hard Drive) or SSD (Solid State Drive), which is faster and more productive.
    The main types of VPS virtualization are OpenVZ and KVM. At LLHOST INC. VPS are represented by the OVS (Optimized Virtual Servers) group based on KVM virtualization.
    Memory (RAM)
    It effects on the download speed: the larger the project, the more RAM is required.
    Processor (vCPU)
    Task speed depends on the server processor's performance: more processor cores are able to process more requests.
    Operating System
    Each OS has its own specifics, so it depends on your needs and habits.
    This is the amount of data your server can transfer over the internet per month. At LLHOST INC. any OVS plan includes unmetered bandwidth, which means you are not charged according to the amount of bandwidth you use.
    Control Panel
    There are Control Panels for the VPS service as well as Control Panels for hosting software.
    The Control Panels for hosting software help you to manage your Linux hosting software through a web interface. You can install various software and launch websites on the server, build and manage databases. The VPS Service Control Panel is created to reinstall the operating system, reboot the server, and monitor the status of the server. LLHOST INC. offers VM manager by default, other control panels can be configured optionally.

    In addition to these technical specifications, the following are equally important:
    • a free trial period for assessing the quality of the server's power and capacity;
    • data centers located as close to your area as possible;
    • multilingual technical support available 24/7;
    • ability to upgrade without downtime.

    If you can't define your project requirements, first choose the minimum plan and check if it is sufficient for you, and if necessary, upgrade it.

    How to choose a VPS? Shortcut.

    Our experts will be happy to provide you with more detailed information. We will certainly give you advice on the appropriate OVS plan for your tasks. Feel free to contact Sales Department, or place your question in our Telegram chat.

    Protect your server from hacking!

    Protect your server from hacking!

    Online security is a top priority for each and every one of us. Every person or business can face a virus attack or servers’ hacking. This has implications related not only to data stealing or loss, but also to the power of your server that can be used to perform DDos-attacks on any other web resource.

    For this reason, it is very important to pay as much attention to server security. Don't forget that when it comes to safety, it is not just a specific action, but a series of measures.

    Today, let's discuss how to protect your server from hacking and secure all the data stored on it.

    Services setup
    OS and its default configurations contain a wide range of network services, from remote registry to print server service. Each service running on your server's operating system is an open port for attacks. Delete the unnecessary services you are not using. This keeps your server safe and increases its performance.

    Software Update
    Regular software updates are essential to secure the virtual server. The daily update of the OS, hypervisor, databases, apps, etc. removes all vulnerabilities identified by developers. However, we recommend that you check upgrades on a test server before installing it. This will allow to follow the impact of the new patches on the behavior of the associated programs.

    Strong password
    Do not use the same password on different services. We recommend that you change the default password of the control panel at the first authentication. Also send the address, login and password in separate messages if you need to pass the access passwords.

    Two-factor authentication (2FA)
    Use two-factor authentication, both to access the server control panel and to the server itself.

    Setup firewall/brandmauer to filter traffic and control access to the network. It automatically protects vulnerable areas on your server from unauthorized communications and trespassing by blocking suspicious and frequent connections to your assets when, for example, a virus or potential attack is detected. LLHOST INC. team is always ready to assist you in configuring the firewall as needed.

    Separate servers for development and testing
    Any web project in its early developmental stages is the most vulnerable and poses a security risk to your server. As mentioned above, we recommend using individual servers for development and testing, each for their purposes.

    Security monitoring
    Keep server logs separate. Test the security of your server regularly (for example, by pentesting). Also check the logs for any information that indicates possible attacks.

    Use VPN. In fact, it is your own local network that can only be accessed by your servers. VPN servers from LLHOST INC. help improve your privacy and security. You can configure traffic routing with the VPN for the entire server, as well as for certain services or applications.

    Professional audit
    The last step in improving the security of your server is a professional verification by security experts. They will identify any vulnerabilities on your server and resources and provide recommendations on possible steps to eliminate them.

    Do not forget that all server protection methods are not a panacea for every hack, but they do help prevent most attacks. Protecting your server from hacking is a permanent job, not a one-time event. It is important to keep monitoring the operation of the server even after all security measures have been implemented. And LLHOST INC. is here for you!

    Get a -15% discount on all LLHOST INC. Virtual Servers (OVS) orders until July 22, 2022! Apply the promo code "SAVE2SECURE"* and spend the resources you have saved to the security of your server to minimise the risk of hacking. Protect your server today!

    A virtual server within a virtual server? Why not?!

    A virtual server within a virtual server? Why not?!

    Let's imagine that a project, you are working on, needs the software not supported by the main OS of your server. Or you are engaged in the development for Android or iOS. In this case, it is necessary to have running multiple operating systems always at the disposal. Of course, you can configure each of them on a separate server. But also, you can skip all the challenges and run several operating systems at the same time (one within the other or two at the same time). This allows to work on the task in a separate environment. This configuration is known as nested virtualization.

    Nested Virtualization is a set of processes that allows you to run virtual servers within virtual ones. It is carried out with the help of hypervisors, specialized programs that manage the operating systems you need in virtual environments. Hypervisors play an important role in regulating the performance of your virtual environments. They are responsible for allocating key resources like processing power, memory, and other resources that your virtual environments require to function, and bridge the gap between the hardware and the operating system.

    The nested virtualization performance that you achieve will depend on the virtual environments that you deploy. You can select the amount of resources you want to allocate when deploying nested virtualization.

    In other words, nested virtualization is the ability to run a hypervisor within a virtual server that runs on a hypervisor too.

    What is nested virtualization for?
    This question is quite reasonable if you are faced with the concept of nested virtualization for the first time.
    So, nested virtualization is the ideal solution for companies that require virtual environments for development, testing, QA, demos, remote desktops, and more. This technology improves productivity, improves the customer experience, and ensures the correct functioning of your software in the environments that your customers will use.

    What are the advantages of nested virtualization?

    Compared to traditional on-premise solutions, nested virtual machines offer many advantages. Let's look at the most notable benefits in detail:

    Settings flexibility. The ability to host virtual environments within virtual environments allows you to develop and test software on your own terms and provides you with flexible isolated environments that you can adapt to your needs.

    Significant cost savings. With nested virtualization, you pay only for the resources you use, with no overspending on equipment or maintaining.

    Support for multiple hypervisors. Not all hypervisors are equal. You may require a specific hypervisor that is compatible with the virtualization environment. Most virtual environments support the most popular of existing hypervisors.

    Scalability. The goal of any company is growth. You can add additional processing power, memory, and other resources as needed, as nested virtualization is a highly scalable solution.

    LLHOST INC. is pleased to announce the launch of nested virtualization on all virtual servers (OVS)! To celebrate the release, we have prepared for each of you a discount of -20% by the promo code “NV20OFF” when ordering any OVS plan.

    Take full advantage of nested virtualization for development and testing, virtualization training, providing guest virtualization, testing configurations and deploying virtual clouds, as well as any other cases where you need to run multiple hypervisors within a single server!

    Terms and conditions:
    1. The promo code is valid until July 29, 2022.
    2. It can be applied for 3 periods of monthly billing cycle.
    3. The promo code is active for an unlimited number of users.

    How to create your own VPN server easily?

    How to create your own VPN server easily?

    Hello forum users!

    Blocking certain resources will not come as a surprise to anyone today. VPN services continue to be relevant in this case. They allow you to bypass regional restrictions, as well as ensure a secure connection to the network.

    We have already covered all types of VPN and mentioned that there are functional limitations to a public VPN service:
    - the speed and quality of the connection depends on how many users have reached the server,
    - the trial period can be limited,
    - there is no guarantee of data protection from leaks.

    Today, we will teach how to access blocked resources, through deploying a VPN on a virtual server. As auxiliary applications, install PuTTY (a SSH-protocols client) and OpenVPN Connect (to establish a connection between your devices and the server).

    Thus, step 1. Selection of the hosting provider.
    A provider that enables the deployment of a VPN on virtual servers is required. LLHOST INC. is included therein. Choose any OVS plan and get all configurations for server access by email.

    LLHOST INC. is one of the few European providers who accept payments from any country in the world and in any currency: bank cards, PayPal, WebMoney, QIWI, cryptocurrencies (more about Payment Methods here).

    Step 2. SSH connection to the server.
    Enter the IP address of the server (from the configurations sent by email) in the Host Name field and click Open.

    Step 3. Authorization.
    To paste the password into the console, copy it to the clipboard, then right-click (the password will not be displayed in the console). Press Enter.

    Note! If a warning window appears, select the Yes button.

    Step 4. OpenVPN script.
    After successful authorization, enter the ready-made OpenVPN Road Warrior script: wget -O openvpn‑ && bash openvpn‑ and press Enter key:

    Step 5. Setup wizard dialogue.
    The setup wizard automatically includes the best suggestions within square brackets [ ]. Type your choice, confirming with the Enter key:
    Protocol [UDP] — 1
    Port [1194] — 1194
    DNS — 1
    Client name — You can type client, as suggested. In this example, Test was used.

    Press any key — confirm data entry with any key and wait until configuration are completed.

    Step 6. Protocol for running OpenVPN.
    When configured successfully, enter the command cat ~/Test.ovpn (instead of Test, use the name specified while configuring). The script will be displayed:

    Step 7. File *.ovpn
    Select the text of the script, starting with the line client and ending with </tls-crypt>, copy it to the clipboard with the Ctrl + V combination and paste into Notepad. Save file as Test.ovpn (instead of Test, use the name specified while configuring), choosing All files type:

    Final step. Server connection.
    Right-click on the Test.ovpn file and select Start OpenVPN on this config file.

    If the connection is successful, the PuTTy console will display the Initialization Sequence Completed status. Ready! You build your own VPN server from zero. From now on, all traffic will go through the VPN, which means the network connection is protected, and all blocked resources in the area will be available.

    This guide is one of many methods for creating your own VPN. If you don't have enough technical skills or want to save time in setting up, you can make the task as simple as possible. LLHOST INC. has a solution for it — a ready-to-use VPN server for a virtual server's price! All settings are performed in a few clicks: select any plan and install the received configuration files. And as a bonus, we offer you a discount of -20% using the EASYVPN4YOU promo code when ordering any VPN server until August 5, 2022*. Benefit from it and let your friends know, because the promo code is valid for an unlimited number of users!

    * The promo code is valid for three periods of monthly ordering.

    SysAdmin Day. Wait, it’s today?!

    SysAdmin Day. Wait, it’s today?!

    They say that the profession of a system administrator (sysadmin) is similar to that of the doctor — they only remember him when something fails.

    Installing and configuring hardware and software, preparing and maintaining data backups, creating and updating user accounts, system troubleshooting, planning and implementing ways to expand the network structure of any business, and often ensuring cybersecurity, these are the main tasks of a system administrator. Thus, the success and stability of business performance is directly dependent on them.

    Nowadays, the world's largest computer network consists of 6,000 computers and contains 35,000 km of optical cable. It was created at the European Center for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Switzerland to serve the Large Hadron Collider. On a daily basis, 2,500 specialists monitor the entry and distribution of approximately one petabyte of data. Although sysadmins are able to solve a lot of complex problems, the most common reason for apply remains fluid spillage on the keyboard. Every funny story spreads at lightning speed, turning into a joke. Let's remember one of them:

    A man is flying in a hot air balloon and realizes he is lost. He reduces height and spots a man down below. He lowers the balloon further and shouts,
    "Excuse me, can you tell me where I am?
    "The man below says, "Yes, you're in a hot air balloon, hovering 30 feet above this field. "
    "You must be in IT", says the balloonist.
    "I am", replies the man. "How did you know?"
    "Well", says the balloonist, "everything you have told me is technically correct, but it's of no use to anyone!"
    The man below says, "You must be in management."
    "I am", replies the balloonist, "but how did you know?"
    "Well", says the man, "you don't know where you are, or where you're going, but you expect me to be able to help. You're in the same position you were before we met, but now it's my fault."

    It has become a tradition to honor our invisible but important G-men on the last Friday of July. Ted Kekatos initiated System Administrator Appreciation Day in 2000. The American system administrator with 20 years of experience was so inspired by a Hewlett-Packard ads, in which users thank a system admin for installing printers with flowers and fruit baskets. He arranged a picnic for his colleagues in the suburbs of Chicago. Since then, this holiday has been celebrated annually, and is gaining popularity all around the world.

    This year it takes place today, on July 29. LLHOST INC. is directly associated with the work of system administrators, and we want to celebrate that day together! On this occasion, each system administrator (as well as our readership) is honored with a -16% discount on all LLHOST INC. services for 6 months! It is so easy to use: enter the promo code #SysAdminDay2022 in a special field when ordering a Virtual, Dedicated, VPN-servers until August 12, 2022.

    And don't forget to take part in the SysAdminDay flashmob!
    Share your SysAdmin Day party pictures on social media using the #SysAdminDay tag.

    Free hosting: pitfalls guide

    Free hosting: pitfalls guide

    Search engine statistics show that thousands of people request "free hosting services" every day. Despite all the wealth of choice, these proposals do not lead the market. Why doesn't the word "free" have its magic effect anymore, and why does "free lunch" pose serious problems? Let's look at all the hidden threats of free hosting in today's article.

    Low uptime
    98% uptime (that comes with most free plans) is in fact a critical range. This means that your project will not be available for 14 hours per month. An unavailable resource will result in customer turnover, which will certainly have a negative impact on your business.

    Low data transfer rate (DTR)
    As usual, every free server has many projects hosted on it. It gets overloaded, download speed is reduced, and this increases download time by 20-30 seconds. The user loses interest in that resource, and you find it difficult to work on the project.

    Traffic limits
    There is often a traffic limit for free servers. The excess of the consumed traffic is an additional expense.

    Inability to scale
    Free hosting has a limited amount of disk space. As your project progresses, the only way to move forward is to switch to a paid plan. Its price may exceed that of the standard.

    No technical support
    Free plans mostly do not provide any technical support. Any questions that come up must be resolved on your own.

    Risk of being hacked
    Generally, just the cloud space you share with other users is offered free of charge. This increases the risk that your resource will be hacked in case your "neighbors" are attacked.

    Threat of losing your project
    Using free servers, you can lose your project anytime. Many hosting companies, which provide a free service, specify in their terms of use that they may stop the service completely at any time without explanation. A good example of this is Geocities, a free Yahoo hosting. The project was closed in October 2009, with over 38 million web resources hosted.

    Restrictions, restrictions and more restrictions - the only thing that free hosting can guarantee. Minimal assistance, limited tools and excessive risk mentioned above.

    If you are working on creating a project that you intend to develop, invest your time and energy, then free hosting is completely inappropriate. However, you have to pay for it, but in a hidden form. The right way is to accept the fixed plan for reliable and mutually beneficial terms long-term cooperation, isn't it?

    LLHOST INC. is always willing to provide options to build a strong foundation for developing projects of any complexity. We offer a permanent discount for long-term cooperation for all our users. For all new customers, we have prepared a promo code #lunchdiscount. Apply it when ordering any Virtual Server (OVS) before August 19, 2022, and take advantage of a -14% discount on 3 monthly billing periods. Save on hosting smartly!
