Those who especially live in China, Europe, USA, Middle East and Africa will know what VPN actually is. For those who still do not know anything about VPN technology despite of it being one of the fastest growing technology and businesses on Internet. Let me give you a very brief explanation of VPN here.
Virtual Private Network (VPN) is a technology which encrypts your internet data/traffic immediately after it leaves your computer to your requested destination and gives you complete privacy and anonymity on the Internet. Your entire internet traffic passes through your VPN provider’s Servers and gateways hence giving the actual netizen complete security and anonymity on the web. Moreover, if you have a VPN connection that provides you with servers and gateways in multiple countries, you can also access geo-restricted websites through it. Like people in different parts of the world access Hulu, BBC iPlayer and various other geo restricted websites.
Now, when we understand what VPN is, the important thing to decide in the next stage is where to buy it from. There are around 200 registered and unregistered VPN Service Providers in the industry, hence increasing the probability of getting scammed is very high. In addition, there are various other factors other than the legitimacy of the VPN connection to consider before buying a particular VPN connection
Few of the most important factors include, the network infrastructure and strength of a particular VPN Provider i.e. whether the infrastructure is stable and large enough to support your internet needs or not. Second most important factor is the number of servers and protocols that the VPN provider offers. Third, how are the Customer Support Services of VPN providers? Finally, some of the tests like Download tests, Streaming Tests, Stability Tests and most importantly Speed Tests.
