FAQ's about VPN
 
 
  • What exactly is a VPN??

    A VPN (Virtual Private Network) gives you an encrypted tunnel between two computers on the Internet. Once a VPN is established, all incoming and outgoing traffic between the two hosts are encrypted. It therefore encrypts not only your web browsing, but also your email, skype, VoIP etc and most importantly, your ISP or anyone for that matter, cannot log, view, or control your Internet activity whatsoever. From the perspective of websites and other services on the Internet, when you are connected to the VPN your traffic will appear to originate from the VPN server. Therefore, if you connect to a UK VPN server your IP address will appear to be a UK IP address. Your actual IP address and location will be completely hidden and impossible to determine.This results in a highly secure internet experience, which give you total privacy online and if you are in an area where you have restrictions of access give you the ability to work around these geographical block.

  • Why do I need a VPN?

    There are many very good reasons to use a VPN! Most people use a VPN to protect their online activity from the prying eyes of their ISP and other organisations that have an interest in recording your Internet activity for whatever reason. Privacy minded individuals believe they have the right to control who has access to their personal data and a VPN gives them that control. Many countries censor content and services and a VPN service will enable you to bypass these restrictions. Some companies limit content to a geographical region and a VPN service allows you to appear to be within that geographical region. If you use your PC at WiFi hotspots, hotels, or other public networks your connection is very susceptible to eavesdropping. A VPN will encrypt this traffic.

  • Why is a VPN better than a proxy?

    A VPN is far more secure and reliable. A VPN will encrypt all your online activities while a proxy will only encrypt your web browsing. Proxy services are extremely easy to setup by virtually anyone, including hackers and criminals.

  • Where and when should I use my VPN service?

    You should use your VPN whenever and wherever you wish to have an added layer of security and privacy. All VPN services have a very small impact on the speed of your Internet connection, so the only reason to ever not use a VPN is at times when you need all the speed you can get. Individuals who value their privacy should be connected to the VPN whenever they are online. Customers based in countries which censor applications such as Skype or Facebook will also generally want to be connected whenever they are online. If you are travelling or if you use Wireless Hotspots, you must use the VPN to secure your connection against eavesdroppers.

  • What kind of encryption are you using? Can it be cracked?

    All OpenVPN , L2TP/IPSec and SSTP servers use 256 bit AES encryption. AES is a NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) standard adopted by the U.S. government. 256 bit keys are sufficient for encrypting 'Top secret' classified information, the highest classification within the U.S. government. Breaking a symmetric 256 bit key by brute force requires 2128 times more computational power than a 128 bit key (PPTP). A device that could check a billion billion (1018) AES keys per second would require about 3*1051 years to exhaust the 256 bit key space!
