What is a VPN?
A VPN is a security product for online usage. It provides an encrypted ‘tunnel’ for your data, anonymising your IP address and hiding your location from prying eyes. It also allows countries where censorship is rife to access the internet and operate online like the rest of the World.
As an affiliate marketer, you want to be able to market Worldwide. NordVPN allows potential clients to access what you are offering too.
Features of NordVPN
Being based in Panama, NordVPN falls under the country’s jurisdiction and Panama has no data retention laws, so basically there’s no legacy data retention that could compromise your ID.
A strict no logs policy. We want to ensure user privacy and security, therefore we never log user activities. Again, this vastly improves your privacy.
Military-grade AES-256-CBC encryption and a variety of protocols to choose from : OpenVPN (UDPandTCP), PPTP, L2TP/IPSec, IKEv2/IPSec. Obviously this sounds like gobbledegook, but believe me it means your security is ensured.
Risk-free 30-day money-back guarantee. If for any reason you aren’t happy with the NordVPN product or service, you can get a refund.
Unlimited band width and data. You aren’t throttled with how much data you can push through, no matter whether you use it for personal or business use.
4400 servers located in 62 countries (the server number is always growing). This means the access is distributed making it even harder to trace your access and location.
The more servers, the less load — which gives you a fast and stable VPN connection. Pick from a wide variety of locations or add servers to your favorites. You can also tap Quick Connect and NordVPN’s algorithm will select a server based on your location and other parameters.
Fast speed servers that are also reliable and consistent. This is vital for a VPN. You don’t want a service that slows down your access or drops out at the worst possible time.
Multiple ways to contact 24/7 customer support (livechat, email, ticket system). Flexibility is important when you have a problem.
A Cyber Sec feature that blocks dangerous websites and lets users avoid annoying ads. Unscrupulous web builders can embed rogue and malicious code in webpages, designed to steal your personal data. This stops that happening.
An automatic kill switch (can kill individual processes or kill whole internet connection). Sometimes it’s necessary to take drastic action if you feel threatened online.
6 simultaneous connections. People have multiple devices – phones, tablets and computers and you can cover them all on one NordVPN account.
Works in countries (China, the Middle East countries) where internet access is restricted, and strong censorship is in place
Double encryption to ensure top level privacy and security.
