VPNAce is a relatively small-scale Virtual Private Network, which provides access to servers in a fairly limited number of countries. Despite this, it is an affordable way of encrypting internet connections, obscuring IP addresses and circumventing censorship and other geographical restrictions on content.
With an emphasis on ease-of-use, its client software allows for easy setup and is available on a range of devices, including PCs, Macs, iPhones, iPads and Android devices. Subscription to the service starts at $7.95 per month and can be cancelled any time, although discounts are available for users who commit to a longer contract.
VPNAce offers new customers a completely free one day trial, allowing them to try out the service before they commit to a paid subscription. From the point of sign up, the trial lasts for 24 hours, or until the 1GB data limit is reached. All that is required to register for a trial account is a valid email address.
No credit card information is required and the trial comes with no commitment, meaning there is no obligation to continue on to a paid subscription. However, customers are only able to register for a trial account once. At the end of the 24 hour trial period, if the user wishes to continue use of the service, they will need to subscribe.
The VPNAce free trial is limited in terms of the amount of time it can be used for and has a 1GB total data allowance, but is otherwise completely unrestricted. This means that customers making use of the trial are essentially able to experience the full service, as it would be if they paid for a subscription.
In terms of encryption, PPTP, L2TP and OpenVPN protocols are supported, offering compatibility with various devices, although the encryption is 128-bit, rather than 256-bit encryption. Trial customers are also able to use the VPN on multiple different devices simultaneously, and have access to the complete range of VPNAce servers.
As with a full subscription, the online activity of customers is not tracked or recorded by VPNAce. That said, it is not a true ‚zero logs‘ service, as a limited amount of information about connection times is kept. This is primarily for troubleshooting purposes, but the information can be passed to authorities if requested.
