Host Your Own VyprVPN Server

April 2016 update: VyprVPN has partnered with Digital Ocean to offer a promotion.  New members can save 25% off VyprVPN + VyprVPN Server and receive 2 months of Digital Ocean access for free.  This is a great opportunity for businesses.  The promotion will give you plenty of time to build and test your own VPN server following their instructions.  Visit the VyprVPN Server promo page for more details.

The team at Golden Frog is bringing a new twist to the personal VPN space.  You can now manage your own VyprVPN Server.  What does that mean?  It means you can manage your own VPN server in the cloud and access it through your VyprVPN client.  They provide everything you need to set up your VPN server on DigitalOcean, Amazon Web Services, or Virtual Box.  The new feature just launched in beta.  VyprVPN Server is currently available for free to members with Pro, Premier, and Business accounts.

VyprVPN server

The VyprVPN network consists of 700+ servers in nearly 50 countries so members already have access to server locations around the world.  The latest addition gives you total control over your own VPN server.  You can place it at the location of your choosing.  The only limitation is the availability of server resources from DigitalOcean, AWS, or Virtual Box.  I recommend you give DigitalOcean a try.  You can expect to pay around $10 a month to host your own server.  You will want a server with at least 1 GB of memory.  From there you can use the VyprVPN client for Windows, Mac, iOS, or Android to connect from anywhere.

Once again, the VyprVPN Server feature is currently in beta.  Customers who subscribe to their Pro and Premier accounts can host one server free of charge.  Business customers can host as many servers as they want.  You will be able to connect with the VyprVPN client using either OpenVPN or Chameleon protocol.  Beta testers are encouraged to provide feedback in their forum.  You can even track the progress and find out what features the team is currently working on by visiting the VyprVPN Server roadmap page.

For those who aren’t currently members we’re excited to share a promotion.  The VyprVPN team is kindly offering our visitors 25% off in addition to 2 free months of Digital Ocean.  That means you can sign up for a year of VyprVPN Pro for just $6.25 a month and host your own server location through DigitalOcean.  Give the new feature a try and let us know what you think @VPNSP.
