Recently we voluntarily shut down a third of our USA VPN servers. The whole Las Vegas segment to be exact. This was due to a dispute with the Las Vegas host. The servers were only available to the public for 1 month. It was a very sad time for us because of the dozens of hours spent on those servers building out our new features and security upgrades. Before we could replace those servers we had to find a new host which itself is not an easy task and finish addressing things uncovered in our first VPN performance audit. We have completed our VPN performance tuning and we are now working on introducing new VPN servers in at least 3 locations this month.
New Netherlands VPN Servers are Online Now
Netherlands the first of three new VPN server location went live last night. Netherlands consists of two 1000 Mbps load balanced OpenVPN servers and one 1000 Mbps router that also functions as our PPTP/L2TP VPN server. It utilizes LiquidDNS by default and runs our latest VPN stack. Due to the very strict IPv4 assignments at all of the top Netherlands datacenters these nodes do not support our public or modulating IP tunnels. The rapidly depleting stock of IPv4 addresses is presenting us with a serious problem finding premium hosts in Europe that is willing to allocate the large blocks required to support IP modulation and assigning users public IP addresses.
New USA VPN servers in the West Coast are Being Staged
We are pleased to announce that we have found a suitable host in California that has premium bandwidth available and enough IP addresses to allocate the two required subnets to run all 3 types of VPN tunnels we offer. This means we will be adding 267 more usable IPs to our USA network later this week. These new servers will bring 3000 Mbps of premium bandwidth perfectly suited for users in the west coast, South America and Asian markets.
The 3rd New VPN Location Scheduled for July will bring IP Modulation to the United Kingdom (Finally)
We are currently in negotiations with two premium tier III data centers in the UK. Our plan is to finally bring enough new hardware online there to run IP Modulation. As long as one of these two data centers accepts our privacy practices then this location will be online later this month.
