Anonymization service CyberGhost VPN reveals winner of the 500,000th user prize.

Internet anonymization service CyberGhost VPN reaches a new milestone in its history.
S.A.D. has passed the 500,000 user mark in next to no time. It therefore decided to splash out, which meant that the 500,000th registered user was given a luxury weekend worth EUR 500. This included a top-class hotel, a meal in the finest Italian restaurant, along with a superb program of evening entertainment, and anything else you need to make you feel like one of the top 500,000.

By adding our first foreign servers in the US we’ve rewrote the rules of global anonymity online, and this was only our first step towards the expansion and internationalisation of our service.

Our goal is to improve our service for every individual user, this is why have put together a list of potential countries which would be most attractive for our new servers to launched at.
Let us know, which IP you would like to use in the future to finesse the borders lied by present IP-geolocation-based services and websites.

Anonymizer CyberGhost VPN celebrates it's 500,000th user

The time has come:  in the evening of September the 28th 2010,  at approximately 9pm, we have broken the 500.000 CyberGhost VPN users mark.

Which means that the anonymizer now has half a million users. Especially for a service like ours, where the anonymity is based on the amount of users being online simultaneously, it is a tremendous success.

As promised, the winner will be presented with a luxurious weekend. The winner will be informed as soon as he logs into the account management of his CyberGhost VPN account. Further information will be provided there.

We’re giving the 500,000th CyberGhost VPN user a luxurious weekend!

We are making great strides towards the milestone of our 500,000th user.

US servers test run over

As of today, our public US Server Test stage is officially over.

During the testing period, we were only confronted with minor problems which could be managed and solved quickly.
US servers users were offered a high bandwidth allowing them, for instance, to smoothly stream series episodes on

News on the future of the US Servers shall be announced within the next few days.

We thank our users for testing the servers.

U.S. server available again

We recently started experimenting with American servers, unfortunately our hopes and prospects were not quite fulfilled when it came down to speed and capacity, yet.

Starting today our US server Washington is available for our Premium users again, the name Washington in this case do not refer to the city, but rather the American President. Any new potential US servers will also carry the names of Presidents.

We would also like to point out, that some American Videosites can still display the message that the content is not available in this particular region. In this case the website requests the computer’s local time, and bans the user if the latter is not within the US time zone.

The next CyberGhost VPN update will offer a new feature to optionally correct the local time zone to avoid the mentioned problems.
