VPN, which is short for Virtual Private Network, is a way of connecting to a remote hosting server and accessing online content via it as an alternative to doing it directly. Essentially, the hosting server acts as a proxy, so assuming that you have a VPN client on your pc or smartphone and you input the required login information to be able to connect to the hosting machine, you will be able to browse internet sites or download files that you may not be able to access at all directly. Some sites and online services, for example, are available only in particular countries, thus if you aren't able to access them, you could use a Virtual private network, or a hosting server, that is located inside that country. This way it'll appear like you are accessing the service/website from the country and you could get around the restrictions. There are businesses that offer VPNs as an individual service, but we've chosen to offer the service with our internet hosting packages, so if you host your sites on our web servers, you can benefit from the Virtual private network access that we provide absolutely free.
