A Direct Connection is a peer to peer file sharing protocol. This is a text-based computer protocol in which commands and their information are sent in clear text, without encryption. In other words, a direct connection is when your device is continually connected to the internet; you are able to access internet using a browser, this type of connection is typically broadband and since you are always connected, it is important to protect your pc from hacker; no one will send sensitive data over the internet without encryption but many think a ‘private’ link is just fine for plain text traffic, this is why you need to choose the best service provider that covers all of your needs. Internet direct connections aren´t created equal there are several types of direct connections which includes high-speed data links including fiber-optic, Wireless connections including standards and satellite, T and E carriers including fractional T and E lines, LAN connections, Cable modems, Digital Subscriber Line (DSL), 4G mobile hotspot and more. LAN connection that stands for Local Area Network uses a router; on the other hand DSL or Digital Subscriber Line may replace ISDN and uses digital phone lines.
