What is the purpose of using a VPN?

Why would you use VPN and how can it help you?

VPN is the most effective approach to safeguard your internet connection, to protect your privacy, unblock websites and services, bypass censorship, and more. VPN can also be used for the purpose to access geo-restricted content (such as streaming services like Hulu or Netflix) or to bypass government firewalls.

VPN (a Virtual Private Network) provides protection for your transmitted data (and for yourself) by creating an encrypted link ("tunnel") between your device (desktop computer, laptop, tablet, smartphone) and your VPS (which is in an unrestricted part of the world).

All your internet activities are kept safe (encrypted) within this tunnel and allow you to browse the web with your VPS' IP address. Pick a locations closest to you, to avoid lag (every requests and answer is tunneled through that VPS instead of directly passing to your local internet). With VPN, authorities will not find any meaningful information about your activities in their log-files. You are able to bypass Great Chinese Firewall by using a VPN.

China's Great Firewall Restricts Your Internet Freedom

Internet censorship and surveillance practices are strict in China, the Great Firewall of China blocking social media sites like Gmail, Google, YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and more. But not only China restricts access to free information.

Censorship Reaching Beyond Chinese Borders

By February 2022, seven governments — including China, Iran, Myanmar, North Korea, Russia, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan block access to Twitter. Don't be a victim of government censorship! Take back your right to access information and beat the censors with VPN.

Every EDIS VPS is technically ready for VPN operation. The easiest way to go is to use our ready-to-run OpenVPN Turnkey* system image which install automatically on your KVM (*Turnkey functionality is available from KVM Basic and up).

EDIS operates fully virtualized VPS in over 40 countries.
