Below is our recent interview with Nick McDonald, from VPN City:
Q: Could you provide our readers with a brief introduction to VPN City?
A: VPNCity is a division of Think Huge Ltd, registered in Hong Kong and with 30+ employees covering the globe. Established in 2012, we have extensive experience in hosting and VPS services, currently servicing 20,000+ clients across our other brands of OneVPS.com ForexVPS.net and FXVM.net. The idea for VPNCity originated when we saw how many of our clients were using our Linux VPS services to install OpenVPN, so we figured we’d develop a user friendly VPN solution that anyone can easily connect to from any device.
Q: In terms of security, is using VPNCity a good choice?
A: Absolutely. We run a strict no-log policy and don’t capture any user data aside from an email address and payment details. Our clients are completely anonymous and we don’t record any usage data (outside the requirements to balance loads across our servers). All our VPN’s also offer kill switch functionality.
Q: What advantage does your product offer in contrast to your competitors?
A: Good question! We’re the only mainstream VPN service that provides, both soft ether and OpenVPN protocols, firefox/chrome proxies and shadowsocks. For those that love streaming, we also provide dedicated streaming servers to access Netflix, HBO, Hulu ect and BBCiPlayer.
Q: How would you convince the reader to start using VPN City?
A: We offer the security, speed, stability, convenience and usability of the big guys, while providing more flexibility with our all-in-one VPN/Proxy/Shadowsocks subscriptions AND we’re small enough to care. Think of us as your local grocery store that provides excellent quality produce and takes the time to understand it’s customers while providing service with a smile. Once clients start using VPNCity.com they rarely go back.
Q: What are your plans for the future?
A: We’re working to continually improve our service by adding more locations, more custom functionality and additional apps (Android TV is currently under development). Right now VPN’s are still primarily the domain of the technically adept, and we want to bring security and unrestricted content to everyone.
