New VPN server in a new country – Romania

Romania VPN

CactusVPN has a very clear policy regarding VPN server locations – people need servers which work great, people don’t usually need 100 servers in 80 different locations. This is why we have at this moment 12 VPN servers, and each of them has installed 5 VPN protocols – OpenVPN, L2TP/IPSec, PPTP, SSTP and newly added SoftEther VPN protocol. Some can say that 12 is a small number. But our advantage is that all our servers’ up-time are among the best in the business and you don’t have to change 3 servers each time you want to have a good connection.

CactusVPN unblocks sites from Poland

CactusVPN unblocks sites from Poland

I am recently back from London. And one thing I’ve found is that Polish is the second spoken language there. God, Polish people are a lot abroad Poland. And not only in UK. And what they miss the most while traveling or working in other countries? Right! They miss hearing people which speak in Polish and shows in their mother tongue. Unfortunately, local copyright owners started to follow the policy of their US and UK colleagues and blocked content for the possessors of IPs from outside Poland.

How you can bypass Transparent DNS proxy

Smart DNS

I think you noticed lately more and more control and unwanted care from Internet Service Providers. Some of them started to use Transparent DNS proxy technology. It gives some advantages to ISP and make easier for them to change some particular settings for all their clients. But among that the technology has one major “side effect” that is a big problem for a lot of people. And the problem is that Transparent DNS proxy makes the Smart DNS technology useless. This happens because the provider intercepts all DNS lookup requests and forces you to use their DNS addresses even if you’ve set a different pair of DNS values.
