How does a VPN work?

The magic behind a VPN is not that hard to understand, but kind of is. We can take as an example a free WiFi hotspot at the airport. When you are connected to such network your data is not secured and potentially available to anyone as this network is open. On the other hand, with a VPN, you are creating your own protected and locked network inside this open one. Thus, you are safe and covered anywhere you are.
So how to create a VPN?
If you want to create a full-featured service with a large number of servers and locations, this will require a lot of work, resources, and efforts. First of all, in order to get the desired result, you should hire a qualified staff, including developers, system administrators, QA engineers, etc. For instance, developers must connect each server with the application so that the service performance will be smooth. System administrators should buy new servers, fix them in case of the crash, look for their vendors, inspect the data center, communicate with technical support, and so on. Moreover, you, as the owner, must be ready to spend a lot of time to constantly keep an eye on efficiency of your employees and their workload.
However, creating a VPN app is only beginning, inasmuch as maintaining the infrastructure to support it is a very labor-intensive procedure. You may think about buying a cheap server, right? But in this case do not expect to get a high level of your online protection. Another example is a savings when choosing a hosting. It means that you depend on your provider and any moment when it is down you won’t be able to connect to a VPN. Or, let’s imagine that you are flying to China, for instance, where your IP address will be banned in a few days with a high probability. As a result, you will leave with the ruins and can’t use a VPN.
When you create a VPN you should remember that strong specific skills is a must and there are the ins and outs of manual setting of a VPN in a specific operating system. Due to lack of technical support, the only one who can help you will be someone from the hoster’s side. It means there is a chance it will take a lot of time to get answers to your questions or you even receive no response at all. Using a ready-made VPN service, you will be able to avoid such consequences as a professional support team will provide you with a competent advice as soon as possible.
