Start Selling VPN: Secure & Protect Web Browsing

By Johnny / January 31st, 2020

In today's world, we are endlessly connected whether we are on on the road, at work or at home. As end-users, we use our connected devices to send emails, shop online, pay bills, and stream media services.

For anyone who is concerned about their online security and privacy, a VPN is a must. Anytime we are connected, browsing or transacting on an unsecured Wi-Fi network, there's a risk that our information and browsing habits may be exposed. Even in the comfort of one's home, an internet service provider can know and restrict your browsing activity. With VPN, your browsing history and geo-location are kept hidden and private.

That's why more and more people are opting to use VPN. It is estimated that this year the VPN market will grow 15% to $27.1 billion and increase to over $35 billion by 2022.

Get a share of this rapidly growing market by offering VPN to your customers. With the release WHMCS 7.9, you can now offer a high speed, secure, and easy to use VPN service powered by SiteLock and help your customers shield their personal data and get peace of mind each time they use public Wi-Fi, access personal and work accounts on the road, or just keep their browsing history private.
What is VPN?
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) gives a user online privacy by creating a private network from any internet connection. VPN will mask the internet protocol (IP) address which provides anonymity. And most importantly, VPN provides a secure and encrypted connection providing greater privacy from your ISP, governments and even Wi-Fi hotspots.

Here are 5 ways VPN can hide information that put one's privacy at risk:
  • Browsing history from ISP, Browsers, Websites
  • IP address and location privacy
  • Location for streaming
  • Device data sent and received from potential hackers
  • Web activity to maintain internet freedom and government restrictions
Why you should offer VPN to your customers
Although there are some free VPN services available, consumers may "pay" in other ways such as frequent ads or personal information being collected and sold to 3rd parties. Below are some of the advantages of a paid VPN service and why you should offer it to your customers:
  • Offers the most current or secure protocols with a choice of many servers in many countries globally
  • Unlimited bandwidth and connection speed and lower disconnection rates
  • Technical support available
  • Selling VPN helps diversify your business and increase your profit
