A VPN that does the job but not much else

TechRadar Verdict

VPN.cc does what it’s supposed to, keeping you safe from snoopers and unblocking all sorts of content. It even offers two different free trial options so you can take a peek before committing. However, it doesn’t have any advanced features and a lack of any helpful articles, FAQs, or troubleshooting details on the website is disappointing.

Why you can trust TechRadar We spend hours testing every product or service we review, so you can be sure you’re buying the best. Find out more about how we test.

A virtual private network, or VPN for short, enables users to access video and music that are only available in specific countries by allowing them to conceal their real location and also shield their identity from cyber threats and prevent surveillance by concealing their IP address. 

One option comes from Malta based company Pandora Web, the maker of VPN.cc. For those looking for a reliable VPN server, VPN.cc offers more than 20,000 IP addresses worldwide and over 4000 servers. These are spread across 59 different nations, including Mexico, Croatia, Russia, New Zealand, Saudi Arabia, Kyrgyzstan, Costa Rica, Egypt, and China. Since more servers typically equate to faster speeds, this server coverage is excellent. 

Pricing & plans

To begin, Vpn.cc offers a 7-day free trial for those willing to leave their credit card information – but you must cancel the trial within the seven-day period to avoid being charged for the full service. If you’re not interested in leaving your payment information, the VPN offers a 3-day free trial to anyone who wants to try out the service. VPN.cc does not provide a long-term free VPN option.

The VPN offers 4 subscription plans:

1-month plan: $9.99 per month

3-month option: $26.97 ($8.99 per month)

6-month plan: $47.94 ($7.99 per month)

12-month plan: 83.88 ($6.99 per month)

All of the plans include access to their mobile VPN apps, all the servers, high-speed data, a 14-day money-back guarantee, and the option to connect two devices simultaneously. 

Payment options include credit and debit cards, as well as cryptocurrencies or PayPal for higher security.

Privacy & encryption

The fact that VPN.cc has a privacy policy on its website but doesn't provide any information about its logging or no-logging policies is a cause for serious concern. Additionally, it lacks premium features like a VPN kill switch, which is now a given with the top VPNs.

The PPTP, L2TP, and OpenVPN protocols are used by VPN.cc to secure your traffic. We don't know if it uses a 128-bit or 256-bit encryption algorithm due to the lack of information available, and we also couldn’t confirm whether it supports torrenting.  


When it came time to test the streaming capabilities of the service, we discovered that VPN.cc had been discontinued and that there was no way to get in touch with the provider. This was very disappointing because they stated that they could block any platform that was geo-restricted. 

Although we anticipate them starting up again soon, in the meantime it will be best to look elsewhere for a streaming VPN that can support sites like Netflix. 

Speed & experience 

Many people are hunting for the fastest VPN. When using a VPN for torrenting or streaming you need the speed to be roughly equivalent to your regular internet speed because this determines how quickly you can upload or download content. Having said that, we were unable to test the speed of VPN.cc because it is not currently active. 

Customer support  

VPN.cc has an email and a support form that can be used to get in touch with customer service. However, when we attempted to contact customer service for more information, no one got back to us.

The website claims that VPN.cc offers applications for Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, and Android. The apps are still available for download, but due to the VPN's inactivity, they won't function if you do so.

Because VPN.cc is no longer in operation at the time of this review, you should invest in an alternative VPN that has been used successfully.


For a VPN that has been active for more than ten years, it is among the best. You have unrestricted access to your favorite websites and can benefit from excellent privacy tools and online security that satisfies military requirements. It doesn't log your data, offers a 30-day money-back guarantee, and supports multiple concurrent device connections.

Windscribe uses a Block Trackers feature to stop trackers from following your activity, a distraction-free mode to help you focus when you need it, and a strict no-log-in policy to keep your online activities private. It also has a protocol for circumventing Internet censorship.

The service has a user-friendly app, a generous unlimited devices policy, unblocks all streaming services, is lightning-fast, and is loaded with cutting-edge features that are simple to use. Additionally, unlike most VPN providers today, it has permitted an independent VPN audit to test its software.

There are lots of good reasons to choose ExpressVPN. It’s quick and secure, unblocks popular streaming services, supports torrents and doesn't keep any records of your data. It also has thousands of servers spread out around the globe, and is quick and easy to use. Best of all, there’s a three-month free trial to make sure you’re satisfied before paying up.

CyberGhost offers a variety of useful VPN features on a user-friendly platform. The software is free, simple to use, and never makes your computer run slowly. You can access more than 1200 servers located in more than 50 countries, and it offers extensive P2P and torrent functionality. Features include remote access, DNS leak protection, anonymous browsing, and more. Last but not least, one account can support up to five devices operating at once - meaning you can protect your home computers and mobile devices.

There are several reasons why a VPN with a stable foundation and a large number of servers and IP addresses would be inactive. We tried contacting the service provider to get more details as to why their service is inactive at the moment, but we could not reach them. We hope that they will be able to get back on their feet in the future.
