News out of the VPS.NET Cloud Server Community
Proxies and VPNs differ in nature, although they can provide some of the same services. A VPN routes all of the network traffic on a client computer through a tunnel to some other server computer. No individual application configuration is required. In contrast, using a proxy requires each application to be individually configured to ensure its traffic goes through the proxy. The intent of a VPN is to allow a remote client computer to access network resources in some other location as if it were physically located in the same office. One of those network resources can be access to the internet, which masks the IP address of the remote computer. A proxy is more limited in that it cannot provide access to remote resources, but it can mask your IP address and provide geo-obfuscation services. Almost any type of VPS will work for this. Rather, you create an account and link a payment method to it. VPCs tend to offer more control over system specifications and can cost much less than a traditional VPS.

There has been a lot of controversy recently regarding the government censorship of the Internet, especially in the CIS region.
