    A virtual private server (VPS) is a virtual machine sold as a service by an Internet hosting service. A VPS runs its own copy of an operating system, and customers may have superuser-level access to that operating system instance, so they can install almost any software that runs on that OS.

    The VPN (Virtual Private Network) technology came as an answer to individuals’ request to protect their online activities and to maintain their online confidentiality.

    Besides this functionality, the technology helps internet users access restricted content from anywhere in the world, with just a click of a mouse.

    Therefore, we can say that a VPN is a secure solution that allows its users to send and receive data via the internet while maintaining the privacy and confidentiality of their data, based on its encryption level. The cherry on top is that a VPN will unblock the internet, by providing you the most-wanted Internet freedom that you deserve.

    It’s obvious that because of people’s security need and especially because of the need for sending encrypted data over a network, the VPN technology has been developed. But besides the role of creating a “private scope of computer communications,” VPN technology has many other advantages:

    1. Enhanced security. When you connect to the network through a VPN, the data is kept secure and encrypted. In this way, the information is away from the hackers’ eyes.

    2. Remote control. In the case of a company, the great advantage of having a VPN is that the information can be accessed remotely even from home or from any other place. That’s why a VPN can increase productivity within a company.

    3. Share files. A VPN service can be used if you have a group that needs to share data for an extended period.

    4. Online anonymity. Through a VPN you can browse the web in complete anonymity. Compared to hide IP software or web proxies, the advantage of a VPN service is that it allows you to access both web applications and websites in complete anonymity.

    5. Unblock websites & bypass filters. VPNs are great for accessing blocked websites or for bypassing Internet filters. This is why there is an increased number of VPN services used in countries where Internet censorship is applied.

    6. Change the IP address. If you need an IP address from another country, then a VPN can provide you this.

    7. Better performance. Bandwidth and efficiency of the network can generally be increased once a VPN solution is implemented.

    8. Reduce costs. Once a VPN network is created, the maintenance cost is very low. More than that, if you opt for a service provider, the network setup and surveillance is no more a concern.

    Here is how your connection looks while using a VPN!



    Other things you need to know:

    The advantages of a VPN are clear, let’s find out how to create your own VPN server?

    Step 1. Buy linux vps from top quality hosting provider.

    Step 2 Installing OpenVPN

    Log in to the server as the non-root sudo user, and update the package lists to make sure you have all the latest versions. Execute below commands:

    sudo yum update -y
    sudo yum install epel-release -y
    sudo yum update -y
    sudo yum install -y openvpn wget
    Using wget, download Easy RSA. For the purposes of this post, I recommend using easy-rsa-2 because there’s more available documentation for this version. You can find the download link for the latest version of easy-rsa-2 on the project’s Releases page,

    Next, extract the compressed file with tar:

    tar xfz /tmp/easyrsa
    This will create a new directory on your server called easy-rsa-old-2.3.3. Make a new subdirectory under /etc/openvpn and name it easy-rsa:

    sudo mkdir /etc/openvpn/easy-rsa
    Copy the extracted Easy RSA files over to the new directory:

    sudo cp -rf easy-rsa-old-2.3.3/easy-rsa/2.0/* /etc/openvpn/easy-rsa
    Then change the directory’s owner to your non-root sudo user:

    sudo chown sammy /etc/openvpn/easy-rsa/
    Step 3 — Configuring OpenVPN

    OpenVPN has several example configuration files in its documentation directory. First, copy the sample server.conf file as a starting point for your own configuration file.

    sudo cp /usr/share/doc/openvpn-2.4.4/sample/sample-config-files/server.conf /etc/openvpn
    Step 4 — Starting OpenVPN

    OpenVPN is managed as a systemd service using systemctl. We will configure OpenVPN to start up at boot so you can connect to your VPN at any time as long as your server is running. To do this, enable the OpenVPN server by adding it to systemctl:

    sudo systemctl -f enable openvpn@server.service
    Then start the OpenVPN service:

    sudo systemctl start openvpn@server.service
    Double check that the OpenVPN service is active with the following command. You should see active (running) in the output:

    sudo systemctl status openvpn@server.service
    Output
    openvpn@server.service - OpenVPN Robust And Highly Flexible Tunneling Application On server
    Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/openvpn@.service; enabled; vendor preset: disabled)
    Active: **active (running)** since Wed 2018-03-14 15:20:11 EDT; 7s ago
    Main PID: 2824 (openvpn)
    Status: "Initialization Sequence Completed"
    CGroup: /system.slice/system-openvpn.slice/openvpn@server.service
    └─2824 /usr/sbin/openvpn --cd /etc/openvpn/ --config server.conf
    . . .
    We’ve now completed the server-side configuration for OpenVPN. Next, you will configure your client machine and connect to the OpenVPN server.

    Increase in performance. Once a business has installed and uses a VPN, they will encounter quicker system speeds and builds data transmission. This will make online use significantly more proficient, particularly when the need to download any vast records emerges. This is particularly vital when attempting to get to required data online from a remote range with a weaker, and slower, organize

    Another feature of the VPS is the ability to create sandboxes and honeypots. These are methods of testing software updates and features while keeping the main site secure. Your company uses one of its VPS partitions for its main site and another one as a backup.

    Try to look at kvchosting.com ssd vps hosting packages. Support is a genuine 24/7 and responses are always within a few minutes, often with a full solution.

    For VPN you dont need high preferences, you can easily run it on a simple VPS or Cloud,
    But after all you need high connection, you can also ask my team and they will be happy to help you.

    If you use autoinstaller like centminmod than you will get out of box secured, fast VPS server with plenty of resources. On shared hosts webs are stacked up but at VPS your websites can get faster, scale up, get bigger...

    Here are some of the benefits with VPS:

    Stability:the traffic and activities of other VPS customers will not adversely affect your operation.

    Performance: Allotment of resources allows your visitors to enjoy faster load times.

    Dedicated Resources – VPS hosting provides you with more disk space, CPU and RAM.

    Flexibility – Freedom to choose the operating system and software you want to install on the server.
