An IP address is basically a set of numbers separated by dots that points to your geographical location when you are connected to the internet.

Why would someone need to change his IP address? Well, there could be a lot of reasons but the main issue is that it helps to keep your location anonymous when you are online. Other people also change their IP just in order to access websites that block their current ip location.

Let's say for instance that a US website that provides a lot of free movie downloads decides to block users from Kenya, they could easily do so by blocking a range of IP addresses that are from Kenya and they can easily do this from their web server. However, with a US or other allowed IP address, Kenyans would still be able to access that website when they are connected to the internet.

Another reason why you may want to change your IP is when you are using a public internet service such as a public WiFi service. Do you know that when you browse with such services, you could easily be hacked or your personal files accessed? Well, with an IP of your own, you could give yourself some privacy.

VPN services are what makes it possible for internet users to change their IP. You may have heard of several other IP anonymyzing websites that allow you to browse other websites secretly but the truth is that even those websites are not that safe as they can steal you personal information and even many smart websites still block them. With a VPN service however, you'd be able to safely and securely change your IP address to any major country of your choice.

I've used VPN services before as well as tried other IP anonymyzing websites and free VPNs and have come to know that VPN services you pay for are actually the best.

Reasons why you may want to change your IP address;

- To access restricted sites
- To protect your privacy

How VPN services work
=========
It works when you are connected to the internet by also allowing you to connect to your online account which then changes your IP address after logging in.

Once you are subscribed to a VPN service, you'd be given the settings to use on your computer which you can set up as a Dial up connection.

You'd need to first of all connect to the internet, dial up the VPN service using the username, password and other settings given to you and your IP will immediately be changed once the connection is successful.

After you are connected to the VPN service, you can then proceed to the website(s) you want to visit without exposing your real location.

How to change you IP when connected to the internet
============
- Sign up with a VPN service. It can cost about $10 a month or less if you sign up for a year
- Receive your settings
- Create a dial up connection or VPN connection on your system using those settings
- You can always connect to it afterwards when you are connected to the internet
