VyprVPN is the brainchild of GoldenFrog, a Swiss internet company that has been in the business of offering various internet services for over 10 years. They offer you some sweet features such as the option of setting unique VPN preferences for each device you connect, and also a wide range of supported operating systems; going from the usual suspects Windows, Mac, Android and iOS to some less common ones such including Blackphone, smart TVs, Anonabox, QNAP and routers that will also allow you to protect your gaming console, iPad etc.
VyprVPN has over 700 servers across more than 50 countries supplying you with 200,000+ IP addresses protected by 256-bit encryption and unlimited bandwidth. With this company, the better the packs, the more features they hold. Basic, Pro and Premier are the three flavors of VyprVPN that you can choose from, either on an annual or monthly subscription. Their most valuable plan on offer is Pro, billed at $99.96/year (something like $8.33 per month) guaranteeing 3 simultaneous connections, including NAT firewall and PPTP, OpenVPN, L2TP/IPsec and Chameleon protocols. Whichever plan you choose, you also get to enjoy smart DNS service, dubbed VyprDNS, which is something IPVanish doesn’t offer. You can pay using Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, JCB and Alipay. There is also a Business option with specific characteristics and prices as well a free trial period of 3 days.
IPVanish is a top VPN provider that’s not just boastfully talking about not keeping any logs and functioning with just about every device and setup. They’re most proud of the fact that they can label themselves as a tier-1 VPN provider since they own each and every server in their VPN network themselves. There are no free trial accounts to experience this firsthand, but on the other hand you will always have your 7-day money back guarantee that you can make use of to test-run the service. Since we’re on to this, IPVanish presents you monthly, quarterly and yearly subscriptions for its complete service, each one with a specific limited-time discount. The annual plan is the most interesting one, as it offers a 46% price reduction compared its usual price. You will be billed yearly at $77.49 which translates to $6.49 monthly that you can pay with credit card, PayPal, Bitcoin and other alternative methods such as Alipay, CashU, etc.
After your purchase you’ll be able to enjoy its 5 simultaneous connections, AES 256-bit encryption, OpenVPN, PPTP and L2TP/IPsec protocols and unlimited bandwidth by making use of over 40,000 IP addresses supplied by 500+ servers spread over 60 countries. The company will assure you that your IP vanishes as long as you use Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Ubuntu, Chromebook and/or DD-WRT or Tomato routers.
To round things up, both VyprVPN as well as IPVanish are stellar choices for just about any type of VPN user. In general, they have no lack of features as well as some of the most innovative ones that you will not see very often. Even in what pricing is regarded, VyprVpn doesn’t seem to offer any money back guarantee but it allows you a 3-day free trial while IPVanish claims the title of a true tier-1 VPN provider and has indeed an attractive price. As aforementioned, this will be a hard battle both for your trust and that of the market since these all-time rivals seemed to be made to compete with each other.
