Looking to increase your own security and privacy, and access restricted content? Here's how to create a cloud-based VPN server to do so.

Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) are a mainstay of internet privacy—offering anonymity and the ability to disguise your location. With servers around the world, commercial VPN providers allow you to access geoblocked content by making it appear that you are in a country where that content is allowed. A VPN protects your privacy by altering your IP address, making it more difficult to associate your online activity with your real identity.

Creating your own VPN on a virtual private server is easier than you think!
