CyberGhost and IPVanish are two very evenly matched VPNs — at least at a glance. But the devil’s in the details.
Looking past the massive server networks, strong encryption, and the arsenal of features both VPNs possess, there are some different aspects. CyberGhost has a brilliant profile-based interface and great unblocking capacity. IPVanish isn’t too far behind, but its major highlight is speed, thanks to optimized clients and servers.
As for privacy, CyberGhost’s strict zero-logging policy combined with headquarters in Romania make it the more enticing choice, compared to the US-based IPVanish.
Both VPNs allow P2P and port forwarding, which are essential features for torrenting. While they have great apps on all popular platforms, IPVanish offers 10 simultaneous connections — three more than CyberGhost.
However, CyberGhost is the more reliable VPN for unblocking Netflix and the Great Firewall of China, thanks to its live chat — a feature sorely missed in IPVanish.
Lastly, CyberGhost gives you an ample refund window of 45 days, compared to IPVanish’s rather short 7-day money-back guarantee.
