Why Deploy a DigitalOcean VPN Server with UTunnel

DigitalOcean has a proven track record as a robust cloud infrastructure provider and when you combine their agility with the versatility of UTunnel VPN, you get a truly flexible VPN server solution. UTunnel provides one of the simplest yet powerful VPN solutions in the market right now, when it comes to ease of deployment and access management.

Instant and Easy VPN Deployment

With UTunnel, you can set up your VPN server in a few minutes. All you need to do is deploy your DigitalOcean droplet at a location of your choice, subscribe to UTunnel with the droplet’s IP address and then register your server. If you want an even simpler method, you can use our integrated cloud option to deploy your server.

Cut Costs with our Affordable Pricing

We provide you the VPN server software at no cost to you. Our pricing is affordable and transparent; you pay only for the number of VPN accounts you create and maintain in the VPN software. Plus, our monthly subscription plans give you great flexibility. No hidden charges or complex billing process to worry about.

Simple and Centralized Management

Managing your team members and their access rights on your VPN network is quite effortless with UTunnel VPN’s easy-to-use web portal. Also, you can manage all your VPN server settings, including your DNS, subnet and routing configurations in just a few clicks from our web dashboard. No more complicated commands to run.

Easily Monitor Network Activity

You can easily view all your server stats on UTunnel’s server dashboard. Also, you can enable logs on your VPN server to oversee all user activity on your network. This could help you meet compliance requirements and also assist in detecting suspicious activity on the network while ensuring protection against cyber threats.

Flexible Deployment Options

UTunnel provides two options to set up your DigitalOcean VPN server. One option is to create your VPN server in DO straight from your UTunnel account dashboard using our Integrated Cloud option. Though this option is the faster of the two, this will not be the best option if you need more control and flexibility over your VPN server.

The second method is to deploy a droplet in your DigitalOcean account and then follow a few simple steps to register the droplet as a UTunnel VPN server.

Integrated Cloud

Just sign up with us and select DigitalOcean as your cloud provider, select your instance type and location. No DigitalOcean account required.

Bring Your Own Server

Create a droplet in your DigitalOcean account, enter its IP address while creating your UTunnel VPN server, and then register your server.

Frequently Asked Questions

Creating and managing your DigitalOcean VPN server is quite easy with UTunnel VPN. Once your VPN server is set up, you will be able to view all your server stats and manage all aspects of your server and its configuration via UTunnel’s easy-to-use web dashboard.
It is essential to ensure that business data is always encrypted and protected while being transferred over the Internet. When you set up your UTunnel VPN Server in DigitalOcean, it makes sure your data is always protected with encryption. UTunnel VPN supports highly secure 256-bit encryption with OpenVPN and IKEv2 protocols.
Businesses often require secure access to private resources like ERP, CRM, HRMS systems, and other business applications. Such systems might already have password protection, but keeping such internal IT applications and servers accessible across the open internet is very risky. Once you set up your Virtual Private Network in DigitalOcean, you can whitelist the VPN IP address in these systems and restrict access to them only via the VPN. This adds an additional layer of security to your resources.
If you want to manage teams or user groups on your DigitalOcean VPN Server, you should sign up with a business account while creating your UTunnel account. The business account offers the ability to manage user groups and selectively grant access to VPN servers to specific groups. You can easily set up single sign-on with a provider of your choice, which will make user management even easier.
