About The Company

Over the last decade, a lot of emphases has been put on internet privacy and cyber security. Many proponents have pitched their voice about how internet privacy is any user’s right and not something he needs to work to achieve. Ideas like those gave birth to VPN services, which mask a user’s identity and help him browse the internet without worrying about being tracked by data snoopers and hackers. IronSocket VPN is one such service.

The company started out as HideMyNet.com back in 2005, where they endeavoured to provide their customers safe and secure access to the internet by preventing them from ad and government agencies who continuously track their usage. They strived for helping their customers surf the internet without any restrictions wherever a website was banned and ensured that the user’s data is safe when he browses the internet by encrypting all incoming and outgoing data. IronSocket was an upgrade to HideMyNet in 2013, where the creators boosted the levels of their services by many folds in all areas; be it security, privacy, speed, accessibility or customer service.

Features

IronSocket VPN focusses deeply on making sure their customers get all they want. For starters, their website is built in a neat and precise manner. Their setup guides are well designed to guide the user through the setup up process at each step. IronSocket VPN allows its users to run their service on 3 devices simultaneously, but that can be increased up to 8, which is a great feature. High-speed connections and unlimited bandwidth are the hallmarks of IronSocket VPN.  Many different payment options like PayPal, credit cards and bitcoin are available.

Global Network

IronSocket does not have a vast number of servers for its VPN service, but it still manages to provide its users great global coverage. Connection drops and failures are quite rare, and IronSocket VPN is looking to improve this even further by adding more servers dedicated to their cause.

Protocols

IronSocket VPN provides the highest level of security with its OpenVPN 1024-bit data encryption and SSL with 256-bit AES encryption as well as 2048 bit key certificate. They also use HTTP Proxy and SOCKS5 Proxy servers, which particularly come handy in P2P downloading.

Compatibility

One of the best features of IronSocket is its ability to support all platforms and all devices. Setup guides for operating systems like Windows, Mac-OS and Linux are provided to the users. It also supports most other devices like mobile phones, tablets, as well as gaming consoles like PS3, Xbox360, Wii, WiiU, PsVita and even AppleTV.

Pricing Plans

IronSocket VPN offers a single all-in-one pack for its customers. The price of this package varies according to the subscription the user opts for viz. monthly, six-monthly or annually. The prices for the three are $6.99/month, $5.99/month and $4.99/month respectively.

VPN Apps/Software

IronSocket VPN does not come in a software that has to be installed. It is not limited to any operating system and can be easily implemented across many platforms. For other devices like cell phones, tablet, there is no particular app, but there are instructions provided to the users as to how to set up their service on said devices.

Additional Features

IronSocket VPN does not offer a free trial of its service, but it does offer a 7-day money back guarantee. They provide great offers and discounts on bulk purchases and also the option to add more devices for just $1.50/month. Reverting to customer grievances via email is very prompt. They also help customers unblock websites and their data by deploying the use of SmartDNS.
