We've introduced Outline service, a VPN service that you can build on your own server. If setting up a VPN service from scratch is too difficult for you, or you want to connect to several regions, you can try some paid VPNs.
This article is also written in Chinese: NordVPN：全球超過 5000 個伺服器的付費 VPN 服務.
NordVPN is a great VPN service, and it's also supported on multiple environments. (e.g., Windows, macOS, Android, and iOS.) You can have at most 6 devices connected to worldwide VPN servers with the same account. It's pretty easy to just download, and one-click to connect the most appropriate server.
There are more than 5000 VPN servers worldwide, and you can use multiple payment methods: PayPal, credit cards, Yandex, BTC, and ETH etc.
Types of VPNs
In NordVPN, not only can choose a server by region, but also choose a server with specific features. NordVPN will help you find the fastest servers.
Peer-to-Peer(P2P) traffic are allowed on certain NordVPN servers. No matter which P2P server you've connected, the NordVPN app will reroute you to P2P servers to keep you safe while you're using P2P traffic. These servers are located in Canada, and the Netherlands etc.
If you need some extra security, you can use Double VPN (a.k.a. Chaning VPN). All your traffic travels through two VPN servers instead of one.
In gernal, due to the different locations of VPN servers, you may get different IP addresses. However, you can pay for a unique IP address at an additional cost, so that you can not only connect to IP-restricted websites (maybe your server is only allowed from your specific IP), but also prevent the shared IP being blocked by streaming services.
Features of NordVPN
There are also some useful features of NordVPN.
If you connect to an unstable server at the peak, and the connection is accidentally disconnected, you are still online, which may leak your IP. Kill Switch can terminate some services or your network at that moment to keep your privacy.
CyberSec will automatically block dangerous website, and keep you safe from phishings, scams, and possible botnet control. What's more, it has a built-in ads blocking servicesto hides unwanted pop-ups, autoplay videos ads and other advertising material.
