About the Company
EarthVPN is a subsidiary of one of the biggest internet service providers from Northern Cypress. The VPN provides a wide range of voice, data, internet and web hosting products. The services are offered to both business as well as residential customers and are very appreciated by the users around the globe.
We will look into all the features EarthVPN offers to analyze and determine how good the VPN service is. The chances are that you would end up thinking about trying out the service.
EarthVPN doesn’t have as big of a network as many other VPN providers. There are currently a total of 151 locations in 32 countries where EarthVPN’s VPN servers are operational. We tried and tested out a number of servers and the speeds varied but allowed us to carry out the activities we wanted to carry.
The pricing part of this VPN is the best. The monthly package is priced at only $3.99/month and $39.99/Year. The VPN service also comes with a 7 days ‘unconditional and no questions asked’ money back guarantee. We are not sure if they really don’t ask any questions when someone asks for refund but looking at EarthVPN’s overall performance and low price, we don’t see a reason to ask for a refund.
The packages are very easy to understand because there is no difference between them apart from the fact that package 1 is a monthly package and package 2 is a yearly plan. All the features are same, some of which include access to all 32 countries, 151 locations, all the mentioned protocols, unlimited bandwidth, P2P support, 128 bit encryption and so on.
There, however, is no Free trial offered by EarthVPN at the moment. So the users must buy the subscription in order to try out the service. I mean with the price of only $3.99 a month, even if I don’t get refund I’d still be ok that I used the service for a whole month!
EarthVPN ensures that there is diversity when it comes to offering customers payment methods. EarthVPN accepts payments through all the major credit and debit cards including PayPal, CashU, WebMoney, Union Pay ad etc. The best part is that EarthVPN also accepts payments through the safest, fastest (and obviously the most preferred mode) Bitcoin.
Protocol Support & Encryption
The VPN is not behind any of its competitors as it offers all the basic and most commonly desired protocols. The supported list of protocols include PPTP, L2TP, SSTP, OpenVPN and SSH/Socks Proxy. These protocols will allow users to carry out almost all kinds of activities without any hassle.
Now let’s talk about the EarthVPN devices and operating systems compatibility and whether or not the VPN provider delivers in this area. The supported operating systems include Windows, Mac OS, Linux and platforms, including desktop, laptop, tablet PCs, Android devices, iOS devices, routers and PDAs! So the VPN supports pretty much all the devices and operating systems, which means that the service must be tried out. We personally installed/configured Earth VPN on several devices and once the VPN was successfully setup we were able to carry out all the activities we were supposed to on a VPN.
Now this is yet another reason why you should try EarthVPN; it supports P2P file sharing. EarthVPN has specially deployed servers in different parts of the world so that P2P lovers can easily upload and download the content/data they want to. So all you have to do is to connect to a P2P-supported server and you are good to download all the music, movies, books etc. since you will be downloading/uploading anonymously, you should not worry about any legal issues.
Surprisingly, EarthVPN also supports Multi-Logins. You can use the VPN service on up to 3 devices (devices can be different i.e. tablets, desktop, etc.) as long as all the devices are connected to the same internet connection. So one account credentials can be utilized by up to three different users in your family!
Money Back Guarantee: EarthVPN gives a 7 days money back guarantee to all the users. In case of dissatisfaction, all a user has to do is to file a refund within 7 days and they will be refunded soon.
Logs policy: The Logs Policy says that no user activity is being logged. The VPN provider also claims that no third parties are able to match an IP address to an account and that under no circumstances user’s personal info will be handed over to a third party. However, we recently read about an instance where an EarthVPN user was arrested after police found activity logs of him threatening his school of a bomb attack. After reading the story we got unsure about the logs policy so we advise you to smartly use EarthVPN in order to avoid any such instance.
There is no Live Chat feature so you may expect delayed responses to your queries. The support is provided via email and support ticket. TeamViewer support is also available in case a user’s issue cannot be resolved, or they cannot set the VPN up themselves. However, the FAQs section has all the basic questions answered that might pop up in your minds as a new or even an old user of EarthVPN. So you might not even need to contact the customer support in the first place.
Innovative Features or Special Add-ons
When it comes to innovative features, or Add-Ons, EarthVPN is not a service to boost as it terribly lacks in this area. Here are the details of the features/add-ons it offers or it doesn’t:
Dedicated IPs – Yes – A dedicated, fixed or static IP has number of benefits, especially for the entrepreneurs or professionals who must go online using a particular region’s IP address on a regular basis. A dedicated IP is also great as it ensures no illegal activity is being done through it by other users as it is never shared with anyone else but the user who bought it.
Internet Kill Switch – No
Streaming Booster – No
Online Gaming Support –No
NAT Firewall – No
Web Protection – No
Anti Malware Protection – No
Encrypted Email – No
Stealth Browser – No
DDoS Attack Protection – No
Here are the pros and cons we listed down after a thorough analysis of the VPN service. These should help you determine whether EarthVPN is for you or not:
- Amazingly low-priced
- Offers all basic features, protocols and platforms support
- Comes with money back guarantee and multi-logins
- Unlimited bandwidth
- Unavailability of live chat
- Lack of innovative features/Add-Ons
- Shady log-policy
EarthVPN fulfils all the basic requirements of the users in cheap price. You may expect speed slowdowns at times on some servers but that shouldn’t be the reason to overlook all the amazing things about this VPN i.e. multi-logins, P2P support, money back guarantee, multi-device support etc. EarthVPN is a service worth trying.
