Cheap VPN Access for.... torrenting?



  • I am looking for a VPN Access to be put on my virtual machine mainly for Farming game and torrenting.
    Any recommendation?

    I used Private Internet Access before. They are decent and cheap, but I wonder if anyone has any other recommendation?
    The TunnelBear service doesn't allow torrenting so that's a no go.

    Let me know :D

    ps. What's Water Closet for? I'm hoping it is meant for ANYTHING else beside tech discussion.

    You could always use TOR, but speed is going to be painful.

    Right the first time!



  • Have a look at these: https://www.ipvanish.com/en/ - I haven't personally used them but I have seen good reviews inside a computer mag.



  • I am an expert torrenteer who has received DMCA notices about 2 times and I have learned the hard way that using a torrent VPN is a pretty integral thing. Nowadays using ExpressVPN even if I am not torrenting; yes, I am that paranoid.



  • Just encrypt your traffic. Most torrent programs have this as an option. A VPN is extremely slow.



  • I have been using torrents since a decade, but somehow i feel insecure about it thats why i started using VPN for security and i found Best VPN for Torrenting.



  • I've used PIA in the past and it was ok. But if you really want to be safe, then invest in seed box and switch to private trackers that offer SSL exclusively. Just remember not to use VPN on private trackers.

    Alternatively, if you're at the point of spending money on downloading movies and shows, consider just subscribing to Netflix, Hulu or some other streaming service. Why would you spend money to do something illegal, when you can do it legally for almost the same price.



  • Why use similar protection for a disponsable machine? Fire an EC2 linux instance with minimum requirement (free tier is your friend), take a snapshot of its clear status with all your needed configuration, download everything you want… fetch the files from the machine, revert the machine to the golden master state and power it off for money saving. 👍



  • I've been using FrootVPN for the past couple years or so for all occasions. I only have positive things to say... fast, reliable, very low cost, lots of servers. I started with them when they only had one server, in Sweden. Now they have a ton world wide, which is very useful while I am in Sweden... and very useful when in the States!

    Copy/paste from their website:

    ALL PLANS INCLUDE
    OpenVPN, PPTP, SSTP, L2TP (over IPsec)
    First class VPN software
    5 simultaneous connections
    Unlimited bandwidth and speed
    2048bit encryption
    Torrents and P2P Networks
    No logs
