Some countries get limited access to content on YouTube. Other countries cannot access any YouTube content at all. A VPN is the answer to unlimited website access to content on YouTube. With a VPN, other censored or blocked websites and content becomes accessible as well. With a wide choice of IPs at your disposal in different countries, you can access any content that is only available in each of those countries.
Unlimited Website Access
Internet users today encounter many different types of issues with website access. Sometimes a service permits website access in one country only. Or the service may limit certain content to a specific country. Other content that is otherwise available from the service worldwide is blocked by a certain country. YouTube is one popular video content provider. Many people wish they had website access to YouTube. A VPN can give them unlimited access, anytime, anywhere.
Censorship and content regulation is becoming more and more complicated. Countries are regulating website access to restrict available content to what they prefer their residents can view. Services are also restricting website access so only the privileged few can get it. Some YouTube content is only available in the United States. Other content is exclusively for residents of the United Kingdom. Many other countries also restrict YouTube content to within their area.
Website Access Regardless of Restrictions
Companies restrict their viewership mainly because of copyright and licensing issues. It is not YouTube that is blocking you, but the company that owns the video. Take a video that is owned by a US movie company like Warner Bros for example. The company doesn’t want people outside the US to see it. So they allow only those with US IP addresses to access that video. Anybody who tries to watch the video with a. IP from a different location will get an error message. BBC videos work the same way, allowing only UK residents website access to them.
But people the world over believe in free and equal website access. VPN services also believe in freedom of information. This is why the best VPN providers make it their business to help Internet users break free of these restrictions. A VPN can open all available content on YouTube to users around the world, no matter where they are. Using a VPN gives you the choice of connecting to one of many different servers in countries all over the world. When you are connected to a server in one country, you get an IP that is recognized as being within that country. Your access to all the content that is restricted to that country is therefore opened. This means that you can watch anything as if you were inside that country.
Secure Website Access
Bypassing censorship and other hindrances to free website access can be tricky. Especially in countries where government snooping has become a normal part of life, it can actually be dangerous. Privacy and anonymity therefore go hand in hand with free website access. Established VPN providers know and understand this. This is why they have taken pains to build their services in such a way that they can give users protection. High levels of data and traffic encryption give users not just freedom, but safe website access. This is also a very valuable VPN feature in a world where online crime hits more people every day.
Many companies have also developed the habit of tracking and monitoring users’ Internet activities. Selling user statistics is actually a very profitable business. But all the information gathered by these companies can leak out and cause problems for users. A good VPN service protects users from government snooping and other forms of tracking and monitoring. Google is one of these companies that regularly gathers data from users who visit their site and use their services. They have also recently admitted that they participate in the NSA’s mass surveillance and data collection program. YouTube, being under Google, is part of this. Anyone who wants website access to YouTube needs a VPN to protect their personal details from being shared with the government.
Speed and Connection Reliability
Getting to content from sites like YouTube requires more than just the ability to unblock a website. Access involves the ability to actually stream or download available content. What’s the use of opening YouTube.com if nothing loads properly? Users can spend hours trying, only to see error messages about crashed plugins and the like. VPN services provide users with adequate speeds so they can enjoy their newly achieved website access. The best VPNs offer users several connection options so they can get speed and connection reliability. Encrypting and routing traffic through another server slows down the connection. There is simply more to be done, and it takes time. The data also has to travel over a longer distance. A good VPN for website access can provide users with speeds comparable to their original connections so they don’t feel any lag.
Using a VPN for website access is one of the most sensible things that Internet users can do. A VPN provides a safer, more reliable, and higher quality experience. Getting access to content on YouTube and any similar site on the Internet is secure, easy and fast with a good VPN.
