Anonymity is a new big kick online. It’s a good thing that a piece of software like CyberGhost VPN exists, as it makes the entire anonymous experience a cinch when using the Internet. If you care about your privacy online, you need this kind of software. If you want to swerve around blocked websites and other filters, you need this. If you do things online that you don’t want being associated with your identity, you definitely need this.

CyberGhost VPN is very simple on the user and flexible in terms of what it’s going to cost you. Along with their free plan, CyberGhost offers Classic, Premium, and Premium Plus packages that scale up in realms of server availability and bandwidth allowance. You can even buy months of prepaid traffic on the side. None of that matters this week though, as we’ll be giving away 25 1-year subscriptions for CyberGhost Premium Plus VPN valued at almost €3,000 (USD $3,700) in total!

1 gigabyte of free traffic is included in CyberGhost’s free VPN plan every month. Additionally, it only connects to free servers, forces a disconnection every 6 hours and has a limited bandwidth of just 2 Mbps. If you’re looking for faster transfer speeds and more traffic allowances, you should consider one of their premium plans.

  • Classic VPN: unrestricted bandwidth for the first 20GB/month, thereafter speed is limited to 512KB/s. Access to premium servers and premium support.
  • Premium VPN: unrestricted bandwidth for the first 50GB/month, thereafter speed is limited to 512KB/s. Access to premium servers and premium support./li>
  • Premium Plus VPN: unrestricted bandwidth for the first 80GB/month, thereafter speed is limited to 512KB/s. Access to premium & VIP servers and premium support.

Where forwarding ports and piping SOCKS proxies through certain applications can seem like a nightmare to your web-surfing laymen, CyberGhost VPN makes it a set-it-and-forget-it type of affair. CyberGhost completely simplifies the entire process of connecting to a virtual private network (VPN) and makes sure that every little byte and packet that you’re sending out to the net is encrypted and anonymous.

The Connect tab, shown in the screenshot above, is the first screen you’ll see when installing and launching the VPN software. It shows you your current IP, connection status, and billing information. It will also show you the remaining traffic you have left available on your subscription plan. By default, clicking the Connect to VPN button will connect you to a recommended server.

The next tab, Server list, shows all available servers that you can connect to. If you’re not interested in having a recommended server automatically suggested for you, you can manually connect to one here. CyberGhost has servers in the US, Germany, Italy, China, Poland, Denmark, and more. Their options are very wide and flexible.

The Server map will allow you to visualize where you are in correlation to the available CyberGhost VPN servers. It’s a neat little feature that doesn’t serve too strong of a purpose, but it’s one I haven’t seen in many other VPN clients. It’s nice to be able to visualize the distance.

When you’re ready to connect to a server, you can go back to the Server list or Connect tabs and click that nice, big button. It will take a moment, and then you’ll see that you are connected.

You’ll notice your IP immediately changes. If you’d like to verify that you’re actually connected to the VPN, go ahead and start up your browser and search up an IP-to-location service. Compare that IP and you’ll see the difference.

I’m not in Brooklyn and that isn’t my ISP. I’m connected to one of CyberGhost’s servers, and the VPN is working just as it should be. All traffic is now anonymous and encrypted.

CyberGhost continues on with more options and configurations though, as you can see by checking the Antispy tab.

Antispy will basically allow you to configure how the CyberGhost VPN network interacts with your local machine, in just about every way. You can click through each header to customize the options for your media, network, browser, and more. This is another example of CyberGhost going above and beyond most other VPN clients.

CyberGhost is one of the best VPN clients that I’ve had my hands on for Windows. These 25 copies of CyberGhost VPN will go fast, so enter the giveaway below while you can! You can purchase your own subscription to CyberGhost VPN by clicking here to get to their official website.

  27. Yang Yang Li
    August 18, 2012 at 4:44 pm

    Over $3000 for 1 year of Premium Plus!? That amounts to over $250 each month. With that amount of money, I can set up my own premium server with 1Gbit/s download speeds in the Netherlands. Much too expensive.

    • Craig Snyder

      That's the total cost of all 25 copies, by the way.
