Due to high amount of infected Windows computers and SPAM, we have to block outgoing SMTP (TCP port 25) connections on our VPN servers for all dynamic IP VPN customers.
Once your computer is infected by virus, it sends SPAM emails and it may cause termination of your VPN service as it is violation of terms of service. That’s why you should keep your computer clean of viruses.
We block outgoing SMTP (TCP port 25) connections by default. Most famous free email services (gmail, yahoo, hotmail etc.) provide their SMTP servers also on SSL port TCP 465 which is more secure and this port is not widely used by viruses for sending spam. If you need to send emails from your email client (Outlook etc.), then just change your SMTP server settings to use SSL SMTP on port 465.
We have over 44,000 IP addresses on all servers and the number of these IPs increases as needed.
If you need very often IP address changing, then this service is what do you need (Dynamic Smart VPN). This IP will change each time you start new connection.
If you wish to keep your current dedicated IP unchanged, then you have to purchase next VPN period at anytime before the date when your Dedicated IP VPN service expires. For example let’s say that your Dedicated VPN service expires on 2009-09-10. So you can log in to the Members Area anytime before this date and make a purchase (renew) of next period. The new VPN period will continue to your currently running period (it will start from 2009-09-11), so you will not loose any day of your VPN service and IP address will remain assigned to your account.
In case that your VPN service would expire without purchase of next period, then your currently used Dedicated IP will be free for the other users.
We do not monitor, record or store logs for anyone’s online activity. However, we store following logs:
We use these logs to enforce our Terms of Service, bandwidth policy, spam, crimes using the service, etc. If there is a violation we will use these trace logs to determine which account being in violation. After analysis of these data, we can decide to terminate the service and/or take further actions.
Unfortunately the speed is different for each customer. Please mind that all data has to go encrypted to the VPN server first and then to the target server. That’s why the speed via VPN is always a bit lower than via your Internet connection. The speed differs on each of our servers and it is always affected by many factors:
Yes, it it possible. But P2P is allowed on some servers. please check each package to find out the list of the servers which support P2P connections(Torrent, DC++, etc.).
If you would like to watch UK online TV like BBC iPlayer, you need to be connected to one of our UK VPN servers.
If you want to watch US online TV like Hulu, you need to be connected to some of our USA VPN servers.
All mentioned causes are different for each customer and we are not able to influence it. All servers are connected at least via the 100 Mbit/s port and the servers are not being overloaded.
Try to connect via another ISP (friend’s Internet connection).
