IPVanish is a paid service, providing a better quality service than the free options. That said, there are also ways to save money. As with almost all its counterparts, IPVanish has progressive pricing plans: Save money with our generous purchase options.
For example: 1 month costs $10, 3 months costs $26.90, and 1 year costs $77.99.
You can pay with your credit card, PayPal, or even Bitcoin.
IPVanish is very straightforward to install and use. First, you need to verify your email address. Neither traffic nor download speed is limited. Client software is available for all basic operating systems.
IPVanish supports such protocols as OpenVPN, L2TP, and PPTP. You can work via TCP and UDP with OpenVPN and quickly switch between them. UDP is better for video and music streaming, while TCP is good for regular work in a web browser.
High Internet security is perhaps the main feature of IPVanish. The service has its own first level network which allows very robust security. It’s enough to say that IPVanish possesses 25,000 shared IP addresses, which virtually rules out any possibility of tracking an individual user. Your work on the Web leaves no traces behind, while NAT technology provides an extra level of security.
As a paid service, IPVanish boasts high standards of user support, and rightly so. You can contact support via email and live chat right on the site (on work days). There are very detailed FAQs and guidelines for all basic operating systems.
