Choosing a VPN service that is right for your requirement is often a tedious task as the security and reliability of the service. There are tons of VPN services out there. However, the one with the best security and no-log policy is harder to find, especially, with the 14 Eyes group of countries that will be watching over the internet.

Security

AES (the Advanced Encryption Standard) is military standard encryption that over all kinds of data transfer. We have implemented AES-256 on all the protocols that support it. This level of encryption makes it impossible to decrypt your data by your network and internet service provider. AES is the future and it is already here.

Jurisdiction

We are using VPN mainly for privacy. LimeVPN never logs any data and it is under the jurisdiction of Singapore which is way far from all those 5 eyes, 9 eyes, and 14 eyes countries. However, IPVanish is under the jurisdiction of the United States which is part of 5-eyes. There are many cases in the United States where the privacy companies are forced to store the user data and to share with the authorities.

Pricing

One of the best features of LimeVPN over its competitors is the pricing which starts at $1 per month compared to IPVanish which starts at $3.25/ month which more than 3 times. And why we at LimeVPN provide at this cheap price? As we are from the security field, we know people will go for the free option which has low speed and has a risk of selling your data. More than business, we want to provide the security that is affordable to everyone.

Protocols

We provide almost all the protocols when it comes to consumes VPN. L2TP, PPTP, IKEv2, SSTP, Softether, and even the newly introduced Wireguard. We can’t think of anything we missed! This will help our customers to connect with all kinds of devices that support VPN compared to a limited number of protocols.

Proxy

One of the best features is to use our VPN servers as a proxy so that you can directly configure in your application or browsers. This will help you to change the IP of a particular application instead of the whole device which is irrelevant for some people. We support both HTTP(S) and SOCKS5.

Dedicated IP

We provide dedicated IP with our Pro plan which is hard to find among other VPN providers. Usually, all provide only shared servers. Having a dedicated IP of your own will be valuable for your remote team network as you can allow connection to one for all your logins to your team over an encrypted connection.

24/7 Technical Support

When issues or concerns arise, you don’t need to fret because our technical support team is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We value our client’s time, so no matter where you are, someone from the team will respond to you within minutes. Our customer support channels include email, call, and ticketing. 

Conclusion

LimeVPN has more than the basic features required by VPN providers. We have unmatched and advanced features such as dedicated IP, multiple protocols, 24×7 support and proxy support. You don’t have to spend too much money on these features too. Our Basic plan starts only at $1 per month. LimeVPN makes for more than just an IPVanish alternative, it is substantially more.
