If you are looking for a cheap, trustworthy alternative to a secure path on the internet, might we suggest a VPN network? If you have mulled over how insecure the whole internet scene is, and are thinking twice before typing in your bank details and other private information, a VPN is just what you need. A Virtual Private Network or VPNs can be used by anyone, who wants a more secure alternative to browsing the net.

What a virtual private network does, is encrypts your incoming and outgoing data while you browse the internet, which works well in case of any prying eyes. So a VPN network, basically allows you to function in stealth mode, allowing you uninhibited, unhindered access to the internet, without anyone watching. Information like your computers IP address can give out a lot of data about your location etc. which can be misused. But under a VPN network, you can browse the internet without having to worry about all that. And with CactusVPN you get all this and more.

In addition to that, virtual private networks allow you remote access to servers all over the world. So you can sit in one corner of the globe, and connect to servers in America and Europe, giving your computer a European or American IP address.

CactusVPN was also the first to offer SoftEther VPN protocols. This protocol is compatible with Windows and offers great internet speed, ensuring encrypted, secure browsing on the internet. What’s more, these VPNs also allow you to access and download unlimited torrents as well. If SoftEther VPN is not something for you, you can choose between other protocols like PPTP, L2TP, OpenVPN and SSTP, all of which are compatible to most OS.

If you have ever wanted to get updated on your latest BBC shows or any sitcoms on Hulu, while traveling abroad, you know it’s a nightmare. With CactusVPN you have a solution to that too. With their smart DNS technologies, you can access geo restricted sites like Hulu, BBC, Netflix, where ever you are. All this without compromising on speed or on internet security, so you do not have to resort to those dingy sites that promise your show, but end up being portal malware and viruses. What is more, with Smart DNS technology, CactusVPN allows you to access content on those sites directly, without rerouting it elsewhere, which also makes up for speedy buffering. In short, with CactusVPN you can access over 100 geo restricted sites, with an added bonus of working on other devices as well.

If buffering is not your thing and you are more of the download now and watch later kind, CactusVPN works wonders there as well. With their special Netherlands and Romanian based servers. So if you are tired of suffering at the hands of ISP regulating your download speed, CactusVPN gives you a good reason to smile and shift to them right away.

Now you would think, if CactusVPN is this great, downloading it, and working with it will be a total nightmare. Well, that couldn’t be further from the truth. It is as good as click and download.
