Vpn.Asia Pricing Review
Our VPN.Asia review unveils that the provider offers a single plan, divided into three options. The first is the monthly subscription, which costs around $5.99 per month and gives you complete access to the VPNs features. The second is a 6-months subscription, which comes with a 17% discount. This lowers the monthly pricing to $5 per month, meaning you pay $29.99 in total. The third is an annual subscription, which costs $49.99. VPN.Asia induces a 31% to the monthly pricing, dropping it to $4.15 only!
VPN.Asia Free Trial Review
According to our VPN.Asia review, the provider offers a 3-day trial for users to enjoy and analyze the VPNs capabilities. This is good enough time for you to determine whether you want to subscribe to the service or not. You gain complete access to the VPN features, which means you can check the bandwidth, security, support, and other features.
VPN.Asia Lifetime Subscription Review
Our VPN.Asia review discovers that the provider itself does not offer any kind of lifetime subscription whatsoever. However, the VPN has a partnership with Stack Social and CNET to offer something of worth to customers. If you purchase the lifetime subscription from Stack Social, you will have to pay $49. CNET offers the same plan for $40.
How to Order VPN.Asia
Ordering a subscription to VPN.Asia does not require any rocket science. Signing up is incredibly simple and straightforward. All you have to do is visit the main website and click on the “Sign Up” tab in the top right corner. The page will redirect you to the pricing page. Select any plan that best suits your needs and hit the “Sign Up” button. You will have to enter an email address, username, password, and relevant payment details to continue the process.
VPN.Asia Refund Guarantee Review
Our VPN.Asia review discovers that the provider also offers a 7-day money back guarantee to customers. In addition to the free trial, this remarkable offering justifies how confident the provider is about its service. Not many VPN services opt to provide customers both options. However, it does come with a catch. You cannot leverage the refund if you already signed up for a FREE trial.
Accepted Payment Methods
According to our VPN.Asia review, the provider offers a multitude of popular payment options. Among these, including Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, and Diners Club International. If you want a secure online payment gateway, there is PayPal available too. For leveraging complete anonymity, the provider even accepts Bitcoin payments.
VPN.Asia Servers Review
Though VPN.Asia has been around for some time, it fails to offer a diverse and huge list of VPN servers and locations. The provider has only 40+ servers in over 33 countries. Among these include the US, Mexico, Canada, Austria, Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, Spain, France, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Romania, Sweden, United Kingdom, Australia, Hong Kong, Israel, India, Korea, Malaysia, Russia, Singapore, Thailand, Turkey, and Vietnam.
Privacy & Security
In terms of privacy and security, our VPN.Asia review unveils that the provider does fairly well. They support a number of protocols, which include PPTP, L2TP/IPSec, and OpenVPN. If you want to unblock websites, opt for the former. However, if you want to leverage maximum security, consider using the OpenVPN – which boasts AES-256 encryption, 2048-bit RSA, and SHA-256 authentication.
For logging policies, the site’s official claim is that “it does not collect or log any traffic or use of its Virtual Private Network service”. The only information they record is your account information provided when signing up, which is used for internal record keeping, improving site/services, verify customer identity, analyze usage trends on site, and respond to requests or queries.
VPN.Asia Support Review
According to our VPN.Asia review, the service has quite the active customer support system that operates 24/7. When you click on the “Support” tab, you will be redirected to the page below. Here you can choose to send a ticket, communicate via live chat, or troubleshoot issues via email.
Users who want to learn more about the service can sign up for a support account. Here you have helpful blogs to provide information concerning the VPN, along with other more complicated issues/problems. It is a complete dashboard for you to search for solutions via the knowledge base, navigation bar, or forums.
If the support team takes too long in issuing a response, you can always check out their FAQ. However, this section proves to be quite concise and only answers to five questions. Therefore, it does not exactly attest to be very helpful.
VPN.Asia Apps Compatibility Review
Our VPN.Asia review unwinds that the provider supports a number of operating systems and devices. There are dedicated applications available for Windows, Android, Mac, iPad, and iPhone. You also have setup guides available for manually setting up the VPN on other devices. All apps function smoothly, but according to some users, the Mac and iOS versions prove to be a little buggy. It seems as if the VPN has not updated its applications for a long time. We would like seeing VPN.Asia correcting these minor issues.
If you want to download the relevant application for your device/OS, you can visit the main website and click on the “Software” tab on the top right corner. The provider uses direct links for you to start downloading and installing within a zippy. Users of iOS and Android can also find the applications available on iTunes Store and Google Play Store respectively.
VPN.Asia Netflix Review
In addition to permitting P2P/Torrenting on servers outside the US, VPN.Asia also allows users to access the hit streaming website, Netflix. This makes the provider one of the few WORKING solutions to unblock the website outside US, Canada, and the UK. Of course, some servers may get compromised over time. However, you can always connect to another one to gain unblocked access to Netflix.
VPN.Asia Manual Setup
As mentioned earlier, the provider offers manual setup guides for you to setup VPN.Asia on your device. All you have to do is select your operating system from the list of options on the main support page. Our VPN.Asia review also discovers that the service offers a configuration generator. This proves incredibly useful in establishing manual VPN connections via the OpenVPN or any other protocol.
VPN.Asia Reddit Reviews
According to our VPN.Asia review, the provider has managed to amass a great reputation in the marketplace. Many Redditors are creating threads asking about the reliability and service quality of the VPN. Below is a review from a Redditor who is a customer of VPN.Asia, talking about the same app issues we were discussing earlier.
Here is another review from a Redditor, who gives a rather more detailed description of the service and its offerings. It discusses pretty much the same points we talked about above, along with the gap of a few handy features like no kill switch and firewall. The user also reported to have experienced DNS leak issues, but upon reviewing the VPN – we found no such evidence.
VPN.Asia Proxy Review
If you are looking for a solution to unblock websites, then VPN.Asia also offers a proxy service. Using this feature of the provider does not require the purchasing of a subscription. Any user can head to https://proxy.vpn.asia/ and enter the address they want to unblock by copy/pasting the link and hitting the “Okay” button. You can also choose to remove objects, allow cookies, remove scripts, encrypt page, and encrypt URL.
Our VPN.Asia review establishes that the provider offers a good service overall. Though there is nothing outstanding or unique about its offerings, the VPN manages to deliver consistency in all important aspects: pricing, compatibility, reliability, performance, and support. We would like seeing an add in the number of locations definitely. For now, we would end the review by saying the service has great potential indeed in the marketplace of VPNs.
