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 online.
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 PTP 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
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. And 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
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.
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
recommend. Now, I hope this video has helped you. Thank you for watching and please give it
a thumbs up. Don't forget to hit subscribe and I'll catch you on the next video.
