You may know Namecheap as a domain registrar but late last year the company launched its own VPN service, too. To help people try it out for less, it's currently offering its service at an 83% discount for a limited time, dropping the price of your first month to just $1. It would usually cost $5.88 to subscribe monthly, so you're saving almost $5. It will renew at that price after your first month, though you can cancel at any time. Alternatively, you can jump on the longer-term 3-year plan to secure your web browsing at just $1.88 per month. This is billed as one payment of $67.68 and covers you for 36 months of the service.
You may or may not have considered using a VPN before, but in our increasingly connected world it's a good idea to have one installed. So much of what we do every day is now online — from shopping, to paying bills, signing up for credit cards, or just browsing, and that data can be at risk if you're not using a VPN. That's especially true if you spend any amount of time using a public Wi-Fi network. A VPN can help cloak your internet activity in anonymity and stops you being tracked across the web for advertising, having your traffic intercepted, or running into malicious sites.
Namecheap VPN offers a secure, fast and anonymous browsing experience. It uses AES 256 encryption, DNS Leak Protection, and keeps no logs about user activity so you surf anonymously. Namecheap VPN is also pretty speedy, as TechRadar found in its testing, and has an unlimited bandwidth so there's no data cap to worry about. It doesn't have as many servers as its more established counterparts, with 1,000+ compared to NordVPN's 5,000+, but there are more than enough for day-to-day protection. It works on iOS, Android, macOS and Windows and allows you to use your subscription on up to 5 devices at once.
The 1 month for $1 offer ends on July 19, so don't wait around.
We test and review VPN services in the context of legal recreational uses. For example:
1. Accessing a service from another country (subject to the terms and conditions of that service).
2. Protecting your online security and strengthening your online privacy when abroad.
We do not support or condone the illegal or malicious use of VPN services. Consuming pirated content that is paid-for is neither endorsed nor approved by Future Publishing.
