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.

DigitalOcean VPN : Frequently Asked Questions

Sign up with UTunnel and login to the UTunnel web application dashboard. Locate and click on the "Create Server" button to initiate the setup of a new server. Specify that you want a Cloud server and select DigitalOcean as the service provider. Choose the appropriate instance type and server location based on your needs. Once the payment is completed, your DigitalOcean VPN server will be provisioned and ready for use within a few minutes.
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. Some configuration changes might need a manual server restart if you choose the BYOS deployment option to set up your DigitalOcean VPN. You can easily do it by running a single command on your DigitalOcean server via SSH.
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 integration with a provider of your choice, which will make user management even easier.
Yes, you can easily set up a site-to-site VPN tunnel between your DigitalOcean VPC (Virtual Private Cloud) and any remote endpoint that supports the IPSEC IKEV2 protocol. All site-to-site tunnel properties can be easily configured from the UTunnel web dashboard. Also, you need to add some custom routes on your DigitalOcean VPC servers to send traffic to the remote encryption domain (the range of IP addresses of the hosts which will be participating in the encrypted VPN), through the UTunnel server. But don't worry, our support engineers are ready to assist you with setting up the site-to-site tunnel.
