Techopedia explains VPN Service Provider

Besides providing a private network connection, a VPN service provider also provides end users with proxy servers to access restricted websites/content and to protect their identity. VPN service providers enable end users to access restricted content or any website anonymously without disclosing their location and identity.

The services provided by a VPN service provider can be in various forms, such as:

  • Hosted/Cloud VPN: The client connects to over a web-based (cloud) VPN connection.

  • Public VPN: The VPN is hosted and accessed using public networks or the Internet.
