CyberGhost publishes PPTP!

CyberGhost officially ended its PPTP beta phase and integrated Point-to-Point to its services. PPTP is another protocol technique beside the generally utilized OpenVPN to establish an encrypted tunnel to the CyberGhost network and advisable, if OpenVPN is no option. With the additional PPTP feature Premium and Premium Plus subscribers can connect to the CyberGhost network, even if their respective device does not support OpenVPN or is too complicated to set up

To get PPTP installed is extremely easy. Just open the network connection settings of your device, choose a new VPN connection (often even called that way) and enter the needed personal data to get access to the CyberGhost network. Note, though, that this data is only available for Premium and Premium Plus  users. It can be found in the respective online account. Please click on the entry ‘PPTP configuration’ in the right handed side menu and note the password and the server addresses you get there. The PPTP password is needed to avoid putting your regular CyberGhost account at risk, if your PPTP connection will ever be compromised.

 

 

 

 

 

 

At the time of introducing PPTP CyberGhost offers up to September, 30th, 2012 special conditions on each Premium or Premium Plus subscription, which also include UNLIMITED TRAFFIC!

  • New subscribers: Any new 1 year Premium or Premium Plus subscription will be available with a 30 % discount, PPTP and unlimited traffic included.
  • Upgrade from Classic: Any Classic subscription can be upgraded to Premium or Premium Plus at the usual conditions. Depending on the time left on your subscription and the wanted Premium Plan one will get a counterbalance of months. Details on this you will find in your account under ‘tariff information’. Of course an upgrade will include PPTP and unlimited traffic.
  • Upgrade from Premium or Premium Plus: Existing Premium and Premium Plus users can upgrade to PPTP and unlimited traffic for a small onetime fee of € 7.99 (Premium) or € 9.99 (Premium Plus).

“Celebrate youth, celebrate, those, who …”

You remember this song by Rick Springfield? Well, we do … and we celebrate: Namely our first year, after we left Germany, moved to Romania and began establishing ourselves in Bucharest, Romania, Europe’s Silicon Valley. Why Bucharest? Because we think, it’s the best environment throughout Europe to grow and feed a young company like ours. It’s got highly motivated and thoroughly skilled net specialists, being raised by a free Internet. It shows an urge to shape a future, where privacy and freedom are still positive values. And it got a law system, that remembers 45 years of Stalinism very well and therefore backs up the freedom and courage one needs to go after these goals.

Bucharest got all, we were looking for, when asking ourselves, which might be the best place in Europe to settle down and grant anonymity in the Internet, that elsewhere had become an endangered species. Only here we found the needed place to evolve and offer subscribers from all over the world, what they are looking for: Privacy, freedom and a plus of security in the Internet with no backdoors included – no logging, no spying, no compromises!

No doubt, that we like you to celebrate along with us. Therefore we created a very special offer, including huge savings of up to 40 % and three high quality PC tools in each bundle. Better though, for we also included our famous ‘Unlimited Traffic’ plan.

  • 12 months CyberGhost Premium Plus Unlimited VPN subscription for just € 71.39 (40 % off), including access to all free, premium and VIP servers (equipped for the fastest possible high speed traffic). On this plan, there will be no traffic limitations and therefore no speed reductions.
