CactusVPN Offers Smart DNS

CactusVPN recently added a new service for members who want to avoid geo-restrictions but don’t need an encrypted connection.  They are introducing their own Smart DNS solution.  You can purchase it alone or along with VPN.  Smart DNS costs $4.99 a month or $6.99 a month with VPN.  CactusVPN is currently offering a 7 day free trial of Smart DNS.  A good chance to test the new service.  There is no credit card required.

CactusVPN Smart DNS

CactusVPN has a comprehensive list of media sites and services that are available through Smart DNS.  The service supports a wide variety of devices including Windows, Mac, iPhone, iPad, iPod, Xbox 360, PS3, Roku, Apple TV, DD-WRT / Tomato routers, media players and more.  Here’s a list of video sites by device.

We enjoy their VPN as well.  The difference in cost to add VPN is only $2 a month.  Less if you purchase a long term account.  We would buy the combo plan.  Here’s a full breakdown of their pricing:

  • Smart DNS + VPN – $6.99 a month
  • Smart DNS + VPN – $17.99 a quarter
  • Smart DNS + VPN – $31.99 for 6 months
  • Smart DNS + VPN – $54.99 a year
  • Smart DNS Only – $4.99 a month
  • Smart DNS Only – $12.99 a quarter
  • Smart DNS Only – $22.99 for 6 months
  • Smart DNS Only – $38.99 a year

The Smart DNS + VPN gives you access to their servers in United States, United Kingdom and the Netherlands.  Along with a nice VPN client with advanced features like app killer.  Helping protect your privacy in case the VPN connection ever drops.  All purchases come with a 30 day money back guarantee.
