Best geographical location for VPN and a good provider

Best geographical location for VPN and a good provider

I am not looking to do anything illegal, just want someplace with shitty data retention laws to give a piece of mind when you're surfing the net.

Have been looking at Lithuania, it seems nice in that aspect.

So i'm looking for either a tun/tap enabled openvz box or xen, **OR **a dedicated VPN provider (with good track record)

thanks!

    USA providers won't pass on any logs unless you are doing something illegal and they have a court order. So in that case it should be fine.

    Antarctica then. We will take advantage of the penguins!

    Contact @William at Edis :)

    If you also needed Iceland, go with Edis and Urpad

    Do you have a reason? Just asking, because currently I'm not using Urpad for VPN

    If the data retention climate is better there, why not?

    Climate is hot in Africa for the most of it. Infrastructure is not cool, tho. Germany has good infrastructure and if you operate your own vps the retention law does not really apply even if it was one working because the ISP cannot be held to record all the IPs his address space is contacting, not to mention all sites. That will grow into gigabytes per minute in big ISPs.

    Why not USA then if you claim to be doing nothing illegal? Africa will be a lot more expensive than Australia in terms of bandwidth too, would be very unfeasible.

    found africa vpn for 8 usd/mo

    I wonder what the latency is like? Seeing as that's something I would be concerned about for the purpose of a VPN.

    Just look at there TOS http://www.urpad.net/terms-of-service.shtml

    Pretty much you can't host anything :D

    Um.... yeah... no comment.

    The real question is what can you host on urpad.net

  • A blog.

    Ohh wait. perhaps that uses to much CPU.

  • You saw that too XD

    Things that are legal. Things that don't attract abuse.

    Odd, when I was looking at your TOS, it said "*Abuse the fair share CPU policy. We are constantly monitoring our servers and we request you keep your server load below 5.00 to keep our servers stable for everyone. You can check your server load via SSH using the command "uptime" without quotations." This is the lowest I have ever seen from any host, ever. Not to mention my server was far below this yet you complained :(

    "*Participate in any file-sharing/peer-to-peer activities" Web server is technically file sharing so I guess I can't do that.

    Not to mention you don't even state in an email "we notice you violated TOS" instead you just shut services down and have your ex-customers look around trying to figure out what the hell went wrong.

    Urpad.net is to have people buy server meant for idling and doing nothing.

    "Offering video and/or audio streaming or downloads, MP3 Files, Games and shareware is also not permitted on any URPad.net server(s)." You mean if I make a song I can't host it on my vps? WTF!

    " All files over 10MB must be linked from files within the same account and also publicly available through any domain name attached to your account. Large files (files over 10MB) should not take up more than 40% of the data on your hosting account." You mean if I have a file on a CDN it isn't acceptable over 10mbs?

    Haven't you heard? Having a load average over 5 is illegal. I'm going to call the police on you.

    But I wasn't over 5 load D:

    Concerned about a company with servers in Africa? You know, democracy isn't a popular thing that area

  • ibVPN - multiple locations.

  • With a VPN in Germany, you will not have access to quite a lot of Music Videos on Youtube and services like Hulu are out of reach. Keep that in mind!

    Got divided by zero. Three times. Feel better ever since...
