Help & FAQsThe most frequently asked questions

See everything Close everything
What is a VPN?
VPN is the acronym for “Virtual Private Network”. When you surf the Internet without a VPN, that is, publicly, and send emails or share files, you generate traffic on a shared virtual network. You cannot leave this network without leaving a trace behind you. This information can then be easily intercepted and hacked.
A VPN gathers your information via an encryption system. Your data then cannot be decrypted by other key players such as your Internet provider or other websites in general. The encryption is carried out as per different protocols (PPTP, OpenVPN, IPSec, etc.).
This encryption creates a private channel, that is, a closed line between the customer using the VPN and the server VPN. This is why the VPN service always needs a user and a supplier.
VPN is often used within the context of teleworking to guarantee the employee a secure connection with the company’s tools.
What is a transit IP ?
A transit IP refers to the bandwidth sold by Internet service providers and content providers. The traditional pricing is based on the bandwidth used by the customer during a calendar month, as well as on a minimum usage commitment.
What is a load balancer ?
By definition, load balancing is a group of methods used in the IT world to:
  • Increase processing speed (which facilitates an increase in the number of possible visitors on a website by increasing the number of hosts available.)
  • Optimise the processing of requests and thus guarantee a high level of service availability.
What is a firewall ?
A firewall is a digital tool (hardware and/or software) designed to protect a network’s data (protection of a personal computer linked to the Internet, for example, or protection of a business network). It facilitates the guarantee of data security on a network by controlling outputs as per the rules defined by its administrator. The firewall secures the network, server infrastructures, and physical machines.
