Hong Kong based PureVPN was established in 2006 and is one of the most popular VPN providers in the market. IPVanish, on the other hand, is a US based service provider founded in 2012 and one of the fastest growing VPNs available. While PureVPN offers 750 servers in over 140 countries, IPVanish provides access to over 1,000 servers strategically distributed in more than 60 countries. IPVanish is feature packed and operates a strict no logs policy whereas PureVPN records some temporary logs.
In terms of similarities, both VPNs use 256-bit encryption to secure users’ data and support the OpenVPN protocol. They also both support torrenting and P2P activities on their servers and allow up to five simultaneous device connections on all subscriptions for their services. In the event that users are unhappy with either of these providers and would like to cancel their subscriptions, they both offer a 7-day money-back guarantee which essentially allows users claim a refund within their first week of using the VPN.
