What's happening guys? Today I thought I'd make a little video to answer the question
of whether or not I think Nord VPN is still the best VPN for torrenting. Now, if you know me, you
know that I'm always on the lookout for deals or discounts. So I'll stick a link in the description
below. And that will take you to the best possible deal at the current time.
Now, the short answer to
the question of whether I think it's the best for torrenting is yes, but before I get into why I'm
going to have to show you express VPN, so we have something to compare it to. Now Express is a great
VPN, and using any VPN in general will be better than not using one when it comes to torrenting.
But there's a reason why it doesn't quite match up to Nord. Now, as you can see, if you look through
all of the different servers, you'll see plenty of different locations that you can use with
Express. And this is great, especially for things like unblocking Netflix, if you want Netflix to
think that you're browsing from another country, but when it comes to torrenting, you'd need
to make sure that you're extra secure.
And this is where Nord VPN speciality servers come in
handy. Now, if we take a look on their website, there's actually a lot of things which they offer,
which are great for when it comes to torrenting. First of all, you can see that they have a strict
no logs policy. What this means is there will not store any data or information about your browsing
activity, so you know, it will always remain safe. Next up down this list, something to
note is that you can mask your IP address. This means that nobody will be able to track your
activity or see what you're up to online. Below this. And this is the main reason why Nord is the
best for torrenting is that they actually Welcome p2p servers. Now, p2p means peer to peer and
this is effectively what you're using when you're torrenting. On top of this, if you
want a connection that's even more secure, you can use that double VPN, what this will do is
it will route you through the first VPN and from there rather than than getting onto the internet
straight away, it will route your connection through a second VPN, before connecting you
This means that you're getting twice the protection over any other server on any
other VPN. So let's take a look at how this actually works. So before you start torrenting,
you're going to want to find the p2p server. Now, what's great about this is that a lot of VPN
actually shy away from the subject of torrenting. And they don't really work on it in the same
way that nor does. But because they're so open about their abilities to use p2p servers, the
option is very easy to access from the main menu, all you do is you hit the PDP button, and that
is it, it will now connect you to the fastest p2p server from your current location.
Now, if you
did want to change the location for any reason, you can also do that. But for the most part,
when you're torrenting, it doesn't really matter which location you're browsing from. Selecting
the fastest option here is usually the best. So now that you're connected to a p2p server, you
can get on with your torrenting and knowing that your activity is being completely hidden.
Now for the purpose of this demonstration, I'm going to come up to this torrent here or Flash
Gordon. And when I click on it, you'll see that it asks me if I want to open the file directly in
uTorrent, which is the torrenting program which I choose to use. Now it's a simple case of hitting
OK, and then selecting the torrent and hitting Ok, again, from here, the process is exactly
the same as if you weren't using the VPN, except now that you know that your information is
being kept secure, and you're not being tracked at all. Now the main difference between a p
two p server and any normal server on a VPN is just the highest levels of encryption.
when it comes to this peer to peer activity, a VPN connection that uses a protocol.
Now depending on which VPN you use, these protocols can either be better at speed
or better at security. But with the p2p server, you're actually getting the best of both
worlds, you're getting a fast connection, which also remains highly secure. And because the
servers are specifically designed for torrenting. They're always making sure it's up to date with
the latest security.
So there's never going to be any leaks of your data. So my answer to the
question of whether Nord is still the best VPN for torrenting has to be a yes. And while the
p2p option is usually the best for torrenting, there are also the other speciality servers as
well. So no matter what you're using your VPN for, you can always find a super secure connection
that's going to be more secure than a standard VPN server.
Now the thing is that you're not always
going to be using your VPN it just for torrenting. If you weren't then Nord would be a clear cut
winner. However, you may want to use your VPN for different activities as well such as unblocking
Netflix or just making sure that your personal information remains secure when shopping online.
But the good thing about Nord is it's actually a great around VPN, I'd put it in the top three VPN
overall. The other top options for an all round VPN would be ExpressVPN and surf shark so I'll
include some links down in the description below not only to some video reviews that I've done of
these VPN, but also to any deals or discounts. That will save you a bit of money. money when
signing up to these products, they're all great VPN and all worth taking a look at. But as we've
seen, if you're mainly focusing on torrenting, then Nord VPN is definitely the one that I'd
Now, I hope this video has helped you. Thank you for watching and please give it
