VPN is short for Virtual Private Network. VPN is a great tool to protect your privacy and increase your security level on the Internet.  We can see from the image above that, the main feature of a good VPN service is its security. A VPN  enables you to change your IP globally and encrypts the traffic you transmit over the network.


The encrypted tunnel makes it an excellent option for companies and organizations to communicate confidentially over public networks, such as sending voice, video, and data. The information transmitted between the two locations via the encrypted tunnel cannot be intercepted by anyone else, because the system contains several elements to secure both the company’s private network and the outside network.

Also, when you use VPN service on any public networks, such as WiFi hotspot, you are easily exposed to all kinds of hackers, snoopers, and spammers. A good VPN adds a layer of security and privacy to the network and keeps you 100% secure from them all. 

So basically a VPN is designed to provide a secure and encrypted tunnel to transmit the data over public networks.


As time has progressed, the concept of personal VPN or VPN for individuals is becoming popular. VPN’s advantages have been realized more widely by regular Internet users other than just companies and organizations. Regular personal users can also use a VPN to have information encrypted and secured, thus keeping traffic data private and safe. Through encryption and SSL certificates, no outsider can get access to your data. Also, your government can’t get access to your personal information.

Using the VPN increases privacy as it replaces the user’s actual IP address with one from the VPN service provider. And the newer IP is totally public. Therefore, X-VPN, with its widely distributed server, allows you to get an IP address from the gateway cities it provides VPN service in.

Consider this: you may be a user from Turkey, but with our X-VPN, you can make others (like hackers) believe that you are from San Francisco, New York or any of the X-VPN gateway cities. Therefore, you become anonymous online and no one can know where you are and what you do on the Internet, thus you are totally invisible from hackers, government censorship and other dangers of the Internet.

Faster speed

A good VPN is reliable since there are a limited number of users per server, making sure that there’s always enough bandwidth and servers running. Finally, since the servers are dedicated and have limited simultaneous users, they’re faster than untrusted VPNs.

A VPN is a great bargain to unblock the internet, surf the way you want and stay safe.

Online freedom

By assigning a new alien IP address to your device and hiding your real IP address, X-VPN helps you log in a server located in maybe any corner of the world. And look! You have access to previously blocked content. Everyone can enjoy videos on Youtube and Vimeo, or movies online on popular streaming channels and similar services everywhere. You can also unblock filtered social media in your country and share life with friends from Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram! Get rid of those restrictions and start watching television worldwide today!

This is especially significant for those who live in countries where the government is restrictive and censors online content and information from the outside world. VPN technology helps people in these countries get vital information and talk to the world, thus making their problems visible to the international community. They live in an information-blocking cage. And with our VPN service, we give them one of the keys to more freedom.

In Brief

A VPN gives you online security, secured privacy and online freedom. And this is incredibly useful when you do your online banking, use WiFi hotspots, shop online, access media or secure your communication.
