ibVPN Anniversary Sale

Cheers to ibVPN as they celebrate eight years of service this week.  We’ve been around since they started and are happy to see them continuing to grow and innovate.  We’re especially fond of their ibDNS feature that makes it easy and fast for users to stream content in other countries.  Remember to sign up during the promo to save up to 78% off during the ibVPN anniversary celebration.

ibVPN sale

There are four ibVPN plans to choose from. My favorite is the Ultimate VPN plan which includes access to 180+ servers in 57 countries. Those who want support for torrent downloads will want to choose their Torrent VPN or step up to the Ultimate VPN plan. If you want to unblock content in other countries but don’t need the privacy protection of a VPN, then the ibDNS plan is a good choice.

We’ll end by sharing a video ibVPN published a few year’s ago to celebrate their anniversary.

StrongVPN White Hot Winter Sale

What better way to protect your new gadgets than with a subscription to a well known VPN service like StrongVPN. With the Christmas presents open and New Year’s ahead, our friends over at StrongVPN are running a White Hot Winter promotion. Starting today you can take 40% off any plan. The savings stack so you can enjoy unlimited VPN and SmartDNS access from just $3.49 a month. Earlier this month the StrongVPN team added their popular StrongDNS service to their VPN plans so you get the best of both worlds.

StrongVPN Winter Sale

StrongVPN is well suited for those who want to protect their online privacy and those who want to unblock geo-restrictions. The combination of VPN and SmartDNS makes the service quite powerful. For example, we use their VPN network while traveling and the SmartDNS service to avoid blackout games and watch content in other countries. The difference between the two comes down to encryption. The VPN will encrypt your connection which keeps your data secure and communications private. In contrast, the SmartDNS service runs at peak speed to unblock contect in other regions. Use it when you don’t need the privacy protection of a VPN.

Let’s take a quick look at the special pricing StrongVPN is offering during the White Hot Winter Sale:

StrongVPN Winter Sale pricing

StrongVPN normally costs $10 a month or $5.83/mo. for a full year of service. As you can see the cost have been discounted 40% off the regular pricing. You will also notice that the annual plan was discounted 41% in addition to the normal term savings. That means you can enjoy unlimited VPN and SmartDNS access for just $3.49 a month. We highly recommend the annual plan for the best possible price on a great VPN service. Remember that you can protect all your devices from PC, Mac, iOS, and Android with the StrongVPN software.

OverPlay Boxing Day Sale

OverPlay is celebrating Boxing Day with a promotion that exceeds anything we’ve seen them run in the past. That includes Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals. Everyone who signs up during the OverPlay Boxing Day Sale this week will receive SmartDNS + VPN for the price of SmartDNS alone. That means instead of paying $9.95 a month you can enjoy both the privacy protection of a VPN and the fast unblocking of geo restrictions through the SmartDNS for just $4.95 a month. Those who sign up for an annual account during the sale will get both services for just $4.16 a month. That’s by far the price price we’ve ever seen from OverPlay.

OverPlay Boxing Day Sale

Let me take a moment to explain how Smart DNS works fr those who are new to the technology.  When you use a SmartDNS service like OverPlay it masks your IP address so thata popular streaming services like Sling TV and channels like BBC iPlayer (a great site for the live sports) think you’re eligible to access their content.  I don’t want to confuse anyone.  Some sites are free to use like BBC while you’ll still need a paid subscription to services like Netflix and Hulu Plus.  The magic of SmartDNS is being able to access popular sites and services from anywhere in the world with the geo-restrictions that would otherwise block your access.

Now let’s specifically look at how OverPlay stacks up to the competition.  I use them and would highly recommend both their SmartDNS and VPN services.  The difference between the two technologies is encryption.  Their VPN service will encrypt your data along with masking your geo location.  The VPN adds a layer of privacy protection but the encryption will slow down your Internet connection just a bit.  In contrast, SmartDNS will unblock the geo-restrictions without any speed loss.  OverPlay will help unblock sites like Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, Vudu, BBC iPlayer, iTV Player, Pandora, Facebook, Twitter and more.

As you can see, having access to both VPN and Smart DNS service will give you the privacy protection when you need it and open access to geo restricted content regardless of where you might travel in the future. You can read our OverPlay review to learn more about their service. Remember to sign up during their Boxing Day Sale to enjoy SmartDNS + VPN from just $4.16 a month.
