Things you should know before paying for a VPN

A Virtual Private Network allows the users to access the websites that are otherwise blocked in a specified area. For people in countries like China and Russia, purchasing VPN is like shopping for any other service. It has to be done to use the internet without having to worry about the censorship.

Although it is like paying for any other subscription, beginners do not know what features to look out for when it comes to VPN subscription. Here are the tips you can follow to get yourself the best deal.

Always remember to ask the VPN provider the number of servers they have for their product. Higher the number of servers, greater the bandwidth you will get. This makes it possible for more number of people to connect to the VPN and get higher browsing speeds.

A VPN works by encrypting the user’s data which is then directly sent to the server of the website the user visits. This ensures the data security to the user which is needed when they have to bypass the ban that has been imposed by the government.

Number of Devices that can be connected

It is essential for you to be aware of the number of devices you can simultaneously connect to a VPN service. The number varies with the plan you subscribe for, and hence, you need to know what suits you best.

Some VPNs have no limit on the number of connected devices, but that is not the thumb rule in the industry. Exceptions are everywhere.

Location of Servers

When purchasing a VPN service, you must consider the one which has its servers all across the globe. This is even more beneficial if you are a traveller and take it with yourself everywhere. For instance, the best VPN for China would be the one which has its servers there so that the speed loss of the internet can be minimized.

The quality, speed and stability undoubtedly rank above the servers, but that does not mean that the latter should not be looked for at all.



When using a VPN, the application window and user interface must be easily understandable. It must have the built-in automated mechanisms so that you do not have to invest your time or energy to configure the connection by yourself.

The absence of this feature can be a daunting task for many users, especially for those who have been using it for the first time. So, you must pick up a VPN which can do it for you, if you need it to.

Data Limit

Internet usage is all about sending and receiving data. Although some internet service providers have unlimited data plans, it is not precisely the case with a VPN service. Some providers have a monthly limit which gets exhausted in a couple of days making the user to opt for more expensive plans.

So, you need to check which VPN provider has set the limit that you think will be more than enough for you. Making compromises here can be tough, so verify it before paying the money.


While all these features are necessary, pricing of the product is a crucial parameter as well. The most expensive products are not always the best ones. Never waste hefty amounts on something that you think does not deserve.

You have to be more rational than inclined when you need to pay for a VPN service. It is apparently true that you need the one which gives you all, but it even more necessary that you need to be able to pay for it.
