With military-grade encryption, an automatic kill switch and advanced payment methods that include cryptocurrency, it's no wonder NordVPN (opens in new tab) is considered to be one of the better Virtual Private Network (VPN) services out there. The icing on the cake is the competitive pricing.
With access to over 4,600 servers in 60 locations worldwide and a strict no logs policy, NordVPN allows you to connect as many as six devices simultaneously and has extensions for Firefox and Chrome. All this comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee.
Sounds interesting? This is how you can sign up for the service.

1. Navigate to the NordVPN website (opens in new tab)
2. Click on the red ‘Get It Now’ button
3. This will take you to a page where you can choose your plan
There are three plans available: a 1-month plan which will cost you $11.95 (£9.10) per month, a 1-year plan which costs $5.75 (£4.40) per month, and a 2-year plan which comes at a price of $3.29 (£2.50) per month. The 2-year plan is already pre-marked as the most popular option.
4. Now you must create your account
This step is quite simple as NordVPN only asks for your email address and promises not to share your information with anyone or to send spam.
5. You will now be asked to select a payment method
You get to choose between four options: PayPal, Credit Cards, Cryptocurrency, and Other (Alipay, Yandex, WebMoney, GiroPay, Sofort, and more). After you select one of the options, you will see the selected plan listed, with the discount (if any), VAT amount for your country (the latter of which you select here), a total amount you need to pay, and a ‘Got Coupon?’ link which opens a field for entering your coupon code, if you have one.
6. Finish your transaction
7. Purchase complete
Follow the steps on the website for the payment option you selected and that’s it: you’ve completed your NordVPN (opens in new tab) purchase. Your NordVPN app will begin downloading.
Now you just need to go to your email account and open the message from the NordVPN team asking you to verify your email address and set up your password. Follow the instructions given to do this.
If you can’t see the email from NordVPN, be sure to check your junk mail, spam, promotions and possibly other folders in your email account, as these emails are sometimes mistakenly marked as spam or promotional.
9. Log in to NordVPN
You can now log in to the NordVPN website (opens in new tab) any time and check your subscription, change your plan if you wish, change your password, or download NordVPN apps and extensions.
