VPN

I know VPN has been discussed before, probably many times, but it seems to baffle me each time. I believe it can be useful for a number of reasons but at the moment all I want to be able to do is view some of the links that get posted here, usually going to an article on a newspaper website that here in the UK means I get:

Unfortunately, our website is currently unavailable in most European countries.

A very quick and easy run through would be much appreciated.

I use a VPN that normally connects to servers within the US. However, I can choose to connect to their servers in any place that they offer connections in. This works for most browsing and viewing needs but not all.

My primary reason for the VPN though was for use with financial and other websites that I want to better protect data transmission.

I use a VPN and can choose servers in various countries as macphanatic mentioned. While you will appear to be in the country of your choice the websites will still know it's you assuming you login to the website or if there is a cookie stored on your computer.
