There are so many advantages of using a VPN, from having the option to veil your local IP address to having the option to keep away from regional limitations for websites like Netflix to just needing a feeling of security when you browse the world wide web. Public Free VPNs can’t generally be trusted, and running your own VPN server and IP address is the best way to know beyond all doubt that you are secure. The best information is it is easy to set up a VPN server fast, simple, and within a few easy steps.

This script will let you set up your own VPN Server in no more than five minutes, even if you have not used WireGuard at time before. It has been designed to be as unobtrusive and universal as possible. I have tested this script on Ubuntu, Debian, CentOS and Fedora Operating Sytems.

Step 1: Buy a Cheap Cloud VPS

Step 2: Login to your VPS or Server via SSH

Login to your VPS or Server via SSH after run the following Command and follow the assistant:

wget https://git.io/wireguard -O wireguard-install.sh && bash wireguard-install.sh

You will be presented with the following screen:

Welcome to this WireGuard road warrior installer!

I need to ask you a few questions before starting setup.

You can use the default options and just press enter if you are ok with them.

What port do you want WireGuard listening to?

Port [51820]: 51820

Enter “51820” and press “ENTER”.

Tell me a name for the first client.

Client name [client]: reb.vpn.hostseo.com

Enter “reb.vpn.hostseo.com” (You can enter any other name if you like) and press “ENTER”.

Which DNS do you want to use for this client?

   1) Current system resolvers

   2) 1.1.1.1

   3) Google

   4) OpenDNS

   5) NTT

   6) AdGuard

DNS [1]: 3

Here you can enter “3” and press “ENTER”.

We are ready to set up your WireGuard server now.

Press any key to continue… 

Press “ENTER” to continue.

The process might take a few moments to install, and then from there your VPN server will be configured.

Finished!

Your client configuration is available at: /root/reb_vpn_hostseo_com.conf

Once it ends, you can run it again to add more users, remove some of them or even completely uninstall the WireGuard if required.

Step 3: Download the VPN Configuration File

Connect to VPS via FTP Client or Software to Download the VPN Configuration “reb_vpn_hostseo_com.conf” File, refer to this blog post to download Free FTP Clients or Softwares, I am using Cyberduck for this blog post.

Use SFTP and enter your VPS’s IP address, User “root” and password to connect.

Login to VPS or Server via SFTP

Right click on file “reb_vpn_hostseo_com.conf” and Download it.

Download VPN Configuration File

Step 4: Download the WireGuard VPN Application  

You can Download WireGuard VPN Application from the website.

Download WireGuard VPN Application

After right click on “Import tunnel(s) from file” 

Import VPN Configuration File

Import the file “reb_vpn_hostseo_com.conf” and click on “Activate”.

Import VPN File via WireGuard Application

You will see the following screen after activated. 

Activate VPN via WireGuard Application

Now you can check your local IP address to ensure that the VPN is working properly or not by opening a Google and write “what is my ip address” to verify.

Check on Google What is My IP Address

I hope it was an easy process to set up the WireGuard VPN Server from a VPS.
