Can You Make a Residential VPN Of Your Own?

2 min

By now, you must know the benefits of using a residential VPN to safeguard yourself from the perils of the web. And you wonder: why not make your own residential VPN? Something that’s set up once and you don’t have to pay for it every month or year. Is something like that possible?

You can certainly make your own proxy with a bit of effort. But the question is: is it true for residential VPNs as well?

Let’s find out.

What Does a Residential VPN Mean?

Before we get to the feasibility of creating your own little residential VPN at home or office, let’s first understand what a residential VPN is. Technically, a virtual private network (VPN) that cloaks IP addresses using residential IPs is known as a residential VPN. Residential IPs are those that are generated by real internet service providers (ISPs) or similar like Comcast and Verizon. Because these IP addresses have actual residential addresses attached to them, they are given the moniker.

In comparison, traditional VPNs use server or data center IPs, which are known to have several demerits including the risk of VPN blocking.

Residential VPN providers such as TuxlerVPN offer this service because they have the infrastructure, technology, and capacity required to gather and manage residential IPs. As we have discussed before, there are several ways how this is achieved, most of which happen on a large scale. This typically involves an equally large capital requirement.

That brings us back to our main question.

Is Creating One’s Own Residential VPN Feasible?

As you can see, building a VPN system requires money, technology, and infrastructure (servers). For residential VPNs, a system that can gather residential IPs and pool them for customer use is another critical requirement. This is not a feasible enterprise for most users.

The answer, therefore, is yes, you can make a residential VPN of your own if you have the requisites such as capital, technology, and infrastructure. And above all, the technological skills to execute such a project.

But then you may ask: can I create one on a smaller scale? If you’re looking to create a residential VPN for private use (single user), the requirements remain. You will still need to build a VPN system (that works) and find a way to get residential IPs. 

This is where another question crops up: whether it is worth attempting to create a residential VPN of your own or stick to a reliable VPN company that knows the ins and outs of residential IPs and VPNs? The choice is yours.
