What is a Multihop VPN Service?
When connecting to a Multihop server, instead of your traffic being routed through a single VPN server, it is routed through 2 or more VPN servers. This technology has been carefully incorporated into the iVPN.net network using the same 256 bit OpenVPN encryption as the singlehop VPN servers. Multihop connections offer significantly higher levels of anonymity and privacy however they are slightly slower than single hop connections due to the additional hop that your traffic is routed through. We therefor offer our customers a choice of single and multihop connections.
