Welcome to the new CyberGhost VPN

As you all noticed, we now switched to our new CyberGhost VPN and offer you a Free VPN service with unlimited traffic that allows you to surf the web safe and sound wherever you are.

Our CyberGhost Premium VPN service allows you to access the internet through one of our 150 servers in 19 countries without any bandwith limitations. You have also access to L2TP/IPSec and PPTP to use your CyberGhost VPN on nearly any device you can think of.

We changed the tariff plan, so it’s easier for you to understand and decide for one of the two types of paid subscriptions: Premium and Premium Plus. Currently, our free service covers the basic needs, making a Classic subscription unnecessary.

To celebrate the kickoff of the new CyberGhost VPN, we offer you the 12 Month subscription for a limited amount of time for $39,99 instead of $69,99 and our CyberGhost Premium Plus for $69,99 instead of $109,99.

Right now we are working on the server park to add more servers, optimize the speed and bring back the VIP servers. The VIP servers should be back next week, latest, after they’ve been reconfigured in our dry-dock. Today we added some new servers to our Free Proxy, so we have right now five locations to choose from.

We also ordered a lot of new servers. That means that our server park will grow in the next month, especially in the USA, France and UK.

We also installed a new login sever infrastructure. We work now with a load balancer and a couple of login servers behind that who all access a database cluster. So we shouldn’t have any login problems in the future and can grow without any trouble.

The new CyberGhost VPN: More power – less charges!

Permanent traffic flatrate for all CyberGhost VPN subscriptions

Right now, CyberGhost VPN is heading towards 2 Million users, getting more and more popular all over the world. The company started in 2004, in Germany, moved to Romania  in 2011 and right now, our customers are spread all over the world. While in the beginning most of them came from Germany, today the biggest user-group is from US, followed by Germany, France, the Russian Federation and UK, but also by Countries like Pakistan, India, Indonesia or the Philippines. We are glad that our users gave us the chance to develop from a local service provider to an international company with more than 20 employees (and still growing).

CyberGhost VPN is still dedicated to one thing: We want to provide you with the best VPN-service that is legally and technically possible. And for that we decided to say goodbye to some old limitations in our service and introduce some new features:

Traffic flat rate: CyberGhost VPN has no longer a traffic limitation for the free- or promo-subscriptions, or for the paid services. That’s true for all our new subscribers, but also for all our existing users. No matter if you are a Classic-, Premium-, Premium Plus- or a Promo-User, we keep the service unlimited. In the next days, you will receive updates of our client and the online user control panel where you will no longer find a traffic overview. Say bye bye to the traffic limit!

Bandwidth: We will increase the bandwidth for all our paid users and decrease it for our free users. The new limitation for the paid users is very easy to get because there will be no artificial limitation anymore. The limit is in future related to the internet connection speed of the user on the one hand and on the other hand on the uplink of our VPN servers. Regarding the uplink-speed, we will try to provide you with a minimum or rather an average speed of 6 Mbit/s on a regular Premium-Server.

In future, we give everybody the possibility to access the web safe and secure by offering our free service with a 1 Mbit/s-limitation – that is enough speed to surf the web and to see videos in a web-optimized format.

Server locations: We want to make things easy in the future. All our paid users will have access to all locations where we run servers plus the guarantee that all paid users get also access to all servers we add during their contract period. Premium Plus users will have additional access to an extended server park with high security servers. These servers are especially configured for providing a higher security level (for example a 256bit encryption).

Because of the fact that our existing VIP-servers as high speed-only servers make no sense any longer since all users have unlimited bandwidth and since we optimize all server on speed, we change all existing VIP-servers settings to the new high security-settings.

Premium users can auto-connect to a server next to their location or they choose their server manually by selecting it from our server list. Free users will have access to a basic server park and get automatically connected.

Protocols: Our free service provides a basic protection for a user on his PC, but does not provide a 360 degrees solution for someone’s digital life. That’s what we want to offer, along with our paid plans – protect our costumers wherever they are, regardless which device they use. All paid subscriptions contain the necessary protocols to protect our users on PCs, Mobile Phones, Tablets and so on. We support OpenVPN, L2TP/IPSec and PPTP.

On a Premium account you can connect to a single device at the same time, our Premium Plus subscriptions gives you the freedom to be online on up to 5 devices at the same time.

We decided also to leave out our Classic subscription and lower the prices for our updated Premium from 79,99 EUR to 49,99 EUR and our Premium Plus from 118,99 EUR to 79,99 EUR.

What happens with our old subscribers? Well, our existing users benefit from most of the changes. There will be no bandwidth and traffic limitation any longer. All paid users will get access to all our protocols like Open VPN, L2TP/IPSec and PPTP. Existing Premium Plus users will be updated to the new Premium Plus subscription.

We will gradually launch the changes until Friday and we are sure they will improve your whole internet-surfing experience.

CyberGhost VPN now with L2TP/IPsec support

It’s January and the CyberGhost team tries its best to keep its New Year’s resolutions and offer you the best tool for guarding your privacy, freedom and security in the online environment. Recently we started adding new features and improving as much as possible the old ones, as I am sure you noticed these days.

After the facelift of the website, the new IPs and the implementation of PPTP to all the servers, it felt like there was still room for improvement. So, we really wondered what we could do this time to surprise you in a pleasant way, and after we gave it a thought, we came up with an idea.

We launched a new protocol L2TP/IPsec which uses the highest encryption, comes with a built-in support for PCs, mobile devices and tablets, and can be used along with Windows, iOS, Mac OS X, Android and Linux.

We hope you have a great time using it and we look forward to hearing your feedback along with new ideas and suggestions.
