DDHOSTED provides an encrypted connection between our VPN servers and your PC/Device. While connected to our VPN servers you will be able to use the Internet as you did before with you normal ISP connection. The difference is that you are now behind the IP address from the connected VPN server, your connection is encrypted and secured and it will allow you to unblock your desired websites (Facebook, Twitter, Hulu, Netflix, Youtube etc.)
Our service can be accessed from anywhere around the globe, you will just need an Internet connection that supports one of our VPN protocols.
All our nodes are hosted at our datacenters and connected to our gigabit Ethernet backbone, guaranteeing your access to multiple gigabits of premium Tier-1 bandwidth.
Our service has no limitations regarding the bandwidth or speed; neither limits the number of switches between our VPN servers.
If you want to use our service for Torrents and P2P then you need to opt for the VPN Advance package. We recommend the servers in Netherlands and Romania for best performance and top speed.
We have to let you know that your original ISP speed might drop, but not significantly. However the speed is influenced by more than 1 factor. Factors like your ISP original speed, your connection to the VPN server, the VPN’s servers load and the VPN protocol used will be decisive when it comes to your speed trough the VPN servers.
That is to say, most of the speed problems we encounter are down to the overall Internet speed between you and the country you are connecting to, rather than a problem with our service.
In case you are not satisfied with your current Internet speed (trough the VPN) we strongly recommend you to test all your active servers. If all servers will behave the same then we recommend changing the VPN protocol in use.
We have to inform you that your IPS might block some of the VPN ports like 1701 (PPTP) or 1194 (OpenVPN). If this is encountered we provide some alternative configuration files.
Our service is compatible with most DD-WRT VPN enabled routers that support PTP or OpenVPN.
Our servers will provide you with static-shared IP address.
Normally, each Basic VPN account allows only one user to be connected on a server at a specific time. This is why we have launched an Advanced VPN package. You can login multiple computers at the same time using the same login account if you have subscribed for an Advanced VPN package. Advanced VPN accounts allow more users to connect simultaneously on the same VPN server using the same account. Thus, both families and small businesses can now benefit from the new service.
We currently offer two protocols:
Your ISP will only see a secured encrypted connection to one of our remote VPN servers. They won’t be able to decipher your online activities and make sense of your internet traffic.
Yes, our service works with all of the top online TV and movie websites.
There are a number of factors that will determine the speed you get behind a VPN server. The most obvious factor is your internet speed to begin with, and the distance between your physical location and the location of our VPN server nodes. For example connecting from the Philippines to our New York VPN server is 8500+ miles away, and so some speed loss is going to be inevitable. The closer you are to our VPN server locations, there is less chance you’ll experience speed loss.
A VPN will automatically anonymously encrypt your entire internet connection and as such all applications on your computer will be secured, whereas with a web proxy you’ll need to configure certain applications manually (such as your web browser). VPN’s use much stronger encryption methods and are therefore considered more secure than web proxies.
Once you connect to our service a secure internet connection is established between your internet service provider and our internet service provider. Everything you do online is ‘encrypted’ and essentially anonymous; anyone trying to break into your internet connection to steal sensitive data (e.g. on public Wi-Fi networks) will not be able to because your web traffic is securely hidden. Websites you visit, usernames and passwords used to login to websites, people you talk to online, and files you download and share will be out of sight by third-parties trying to monitor your online usage and potentially steal sensitive information from you.
Not only is your online traffic anonymized, your online identity in the form of an ‘IP address’ is also hidden. Your IP address is essentially your ‘online fingerprint’ and identification to the rest of the online world. Your IP address can tell people and websites your physical location and which internet service provider you are using. You wouldn’t show your identity to a random person in the street, so why would you reveal your online identity and location to potentially millions of online strangers?
Our VPN service is very easy to use, while VPN encryption may sound complicated to some people, you do not need technical knowledge to anonymize your online traffic and protect your online identity. All you need to do is install our software, enter your username and password, and hit connect!
Our service will work with any device that has support for OpenVPN or PPTP protocols. This includes iPhones, iPads and Android devices.
Yes we offer a free trial account. Anyone can take advantage of it and it takes only 2 minutes to create the account. Login and setup information will be sent to your e-mail address. Please note that only one trial per user is allowed.
