Ghostpath VPN Review
First off, I like people to know that I’m the kind of guy who believes in full disclosure. That in mind, when I started working on this review of Ghost Path VPN I was optimistic but cautious.
This is primarily because I like to keep an open mind, but not so open that my brains fall out, and I fall in love without reason.
When I started to look at Ghost Path VPN, I found that by all accounts, it’s not only a great product, but when I started to look for downsides, I really couldn’t find much.
Ghost Path VPN is a company founded in 2012 out of Waycross, Georgia. Ghost Path VPN is a relatively simple and easy to use product that provides a lot of protection from hackers and other intruders.
It offers high encryption standards and excellent functionalities, all the while keeping your budget in mind.
And despite it being a relative newcomer to the VPN market, it’s already established itself as a powerhouse in the industry.
Plainly stated, Ghost Path VPN is very easy to use. It’s easy to download and install without a single glitch.
Another wonderful feature is that no matter where you are in the process, you are always kept informed of where you are. Once you are up and running, everything is very clear and easy to find.
Then, when it comes to operations, everything is very intuitive, with buttons and switches that are clearly labeled. You can switch between servers and protocols with ease.
Ghost Path VPN also offers compatibility with many different platforms and devices. It also works flawlessly with Android, and iOS (iPhone and iPad), Windows 8, Windows 7, and macOS X.
It also supports Linux and all of the other popular web browsers such as Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Opera.
Ghost Path VPN works with the three major protocols: namely, PPTP, OpenVPN, L2TP/IPSec It uses military-grade encryption standards.
Many VPNs don’t protect against DNS and IP leaks, which means that your real location, activity and IP address can leak from the VPN tunnel and ISP’s DNS servers can see it, in spite of using the VPN.
Luckily, with Ghost Path VPN, it’s safe. Ghost Path VPN helps to protect against these types of leaks and makes sure that your data is safe.
Further, if you are using the latest version of Ghost Path VPN, you can rest assured that you get leak protection by default as well as IPv6, an enhanced version for leak protection.
Torrenting is often problematic in cases of VPN. This is due to the fact that it is often provided but not on all servers.
Torrenting is often used to share larger files, but it can often prove to be dangerous since it is often founded to be unknown as to whether a file got to its destination safely or not.
Another problem is that sharing a file over a Torrent can often expose your data when it is downloaded, which is a big problem when a file is under copyright and it is not a sure thing whether it was sent complete or not.
One good thing we found with Ghost Path VPN, is that everything was supported and we were even encouraged to use it.
Customer support throughout this process was also very good.
In terms of pricing, Ghost Path VPN only offers two options: a monthly and an annual plan. With either of these, you get unlimited bandwidth and server switching.
You also receive instant activation upon selection. You can pay with a major credit card and PayPal. You can also stay anonymous by using bitpay. You can also pay with a money order via USPS.
Speed and Performance
For anyone who has worked with VPNs, like so many other things, speed and performance are relative and not exclusive.
With more speed, you get less performance and vice versa. This is no less true with Ghost Path VPN. Relatively speaking, however, with Ghost Path VPN, it’s well, okay.
Everything is relative, especially when you start moving from server to server, and getting different speeds from them. Either way, Ghost Path VPN is still not bad when you consider everything.
Where are Servers Located
As this is being written, there are 100+ VPN servers in more than 140 locations and 50 countries around the globe.
Further, the Ghost Path VPN website provides the complete list of servers with the state and city names.
Once again, everything being told about Ghost Path VPN, is nearly all good. It’s competitively priced. Despite its smaller server list, compared to others, they are located in both the Americas, Europe and Asia.
It also supports multiple VPN tools, including secured and configurable and secured OpenVPN. It provides military-grade encryption.
Compatibility of the Ghost Path VPN never proved to be a problem. Everything operated seamlessly. It also supported torrenting. It also accepts several payment methods, including Bitcoin.
The best thing to be said about Ghost Path VPN’s speed is that it is average. It also falls under the purveyance of the five-eye surveillance alliance.
There’s no free trial version, but it does have a 30-day money-back guarantee, so you’re safe.
When All is Said and Done
All told, Ghost Path VPN is a good product. It might be added that it has room for improvement, which might or might not be in the works, but it’s still a reliable and safe product.
The number of servers that it works with are limited, which can cut into the service, but that’s relatively minor. It’s also very hard to beat the price and the methods to pay.
Ghost Path VPN provides good services for those assurances that it should provide. That’s hard to argue with, and also makes complaining about other aspects hard.
The truth is that if you are looking for a good product to get through geo-restrictions, this is a good one. The speed might be only average, but it certainly gets the job done.
In fact, the speed issue isn’t even really noticeable, unless you are looking for it like I was. Lastly, it’s an American product, so if that is something you look for, you’re in luck.
