Frequently asked questions
What is a VPN server?
A VPN server is a server installed with a secure VPN server software to allow VPN connections for local and remote clients.
The level of encryption of a VPN service depends on tunneling protocols. They help secure data between your device and a selected remote server so that no one can eavesdrop on your browsing activities.
How to select the best server location?
It depends on what you’re planning to do.
For streaming platforms, you will need to have a specific country in mind - you can always ask our customer success team to help you out. If you’re looking for privacy and security, select “optimal location” to get the best speeds.
For P2P, you don’t need to do anything - simply start seeding or downloading while connected to the VPN, and we will reroute your traffic in case that’s necessary.
What is DNS?
Devices and humans speak different languages, but when you type in "surfshark.com," your computer understands it and directs to the website. How come?
When you visit a website, you need its URL. Every internet website has a combination of numbers called an IP address (for example, ours is 126.96.36.199 (as of the time this was written).
It would be difficult to remember all IP addresses of available sites, so DNS (Domain Name System) essentially does that for you. It converts hostnames into IP addresses so that your computer can understand and communicate with the website you want to visit.
Why private DNS is important?
Internet service providers’ DNS or third-party DNS providers often pose colossal privacy risks. They can use records of your DNS requests to track your activity and use them to block specific content or for marketing purposes (such as displaying personalized ads).
If your privacy is important to you - and it should be - private DNS becomes important as a default.
What is Camouflage Mode?
It’s something a lot of VPN providers call obfuscation. Simply said, Camouflage Mode makes it nearly impossible to tell that you’re using a VPN simply by looking at your traffic.
