NolimitVPN is a two year old company that provides a VPN service of the same name. According to the service’s official website, NolimitVPN is managed by “a team of several cyber-security and cyber-defence experts.”
While the company is currently based in Singapore, it plans to move its base to Hong Kong in near future.
Servers and locations
NolimitVPN has its servers located in a total of 10 countries around the world. These include the Netherlands, Germany, France, United Kingdom, Canada, United States, Japan, Singapore, India and Australia.
The official website, however, doesn’t mention the total number of servers the service has, although it’s said to be over 30.
Supported VPN protocols
NolimitVPN only supports two protocols: PPTP and L2TP/IPsec. The official website says that support for OpenVPN is coming soon.
Most of the major OS platforms are supported. These include Windows (version 10, 8, 7, Vista, and XP), Mac OSX, iOS, Android, as well as several Linux distributions such as Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, and CentOS.
Dedicated client applications, however, are only available for Windows and Linux. Alternatively, you can also use the service by installing it as a Web browser extension, currently available for Chrome and Firefox.
The NolimitVPN service is available in three subscription packages, namely Basic, Express, and Premium. While the first one costs €1.99/month or €14.99/year, the latter two set you back €3.99 and €4.99 on monthly basis and €29.99 and €39.99 annually, respectively.
The main difference between the three is bandwidth – 1 mbps for the Basic tier, 10 mbps for the Express package, and 100 mbps for the Premium subscription. The following table details the complete set of features available for each tier:
NolimitVPN offers a 7-day free trial of the service, which is valid from the date of activation. “It is strictly forbidden to cumulate this free trial. NolimitVPN reserves the right to refuse to provide the free trial without justification,” the official website says. The company says it does not offer refunds under any circumstances.
Another point worth mentioning here is that NolimitVPN also offers custom quotes to small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs).
Limit on simultaneous connections
NolimitVPN doesn’t impose any limit on the number of devices through which you can simultaneously access your VPN account. “We tolerate multiple devices (your computer, your tablet and your smartphone for example),” the company says on its official website.
However, it does warn users that their account may be permanently blocked if they’re caught abusing this freedom, although the exact definition of what amounts to an abuse isn’t mentioned anywhere.
We reached out to the team behind NolimitVPN with a list of questions about their service. Here are their answers to some of our privacy-related queries:
Q. Do you keep ANY logs which would allow you to match an IP-address and a time-stamp to a user of your service? If so, what information and for how long?
A. At NolimitVPN, we have developed a custom activity tracker. We only log the user authentication on the network, the P2P activity and the SMTP activity (to avoid any kind of abuse). The activity tracker is based on “magic IDs” (temporary and rolling IDs) so we are able to match a server IP to a customer account during 48 hours. We do not log the traffic content of our VPN users.
Q. Is BitTorrent and other file-sharing traffic allowed on all servers? If not, why?
A. We allow torrents as long as we do not receive a DMCA complaint. If too many DMCA complaints are received and if the user has been warned many times (more than 3 times), we can suspend his account (this has never occurred).
Q. Which payment systems do you use and how are these linked to individual user accounts?
A. We use Stripe but we do not record the billing address on our servers, every information linked to the payment is stored on Stripe servers. We do the maximum to store the minimum information about our customers.
Q. What is the most secure VPN connection and encryption algorithm you would recommend to your users? Do you provide DNS leak protection and tools such as “kill switches” if a connection drops?
A. Currently we support two protocols, PPTP (with 128bits encryption over MPPE) and L2TP (with 256bits encryption over IPsec). Thus, we recommend to use the L2TP protocol (which provides the same encryption level than OpenVPN). We provide to our users a Windows script that automatically connect and reconnect you if your connection drops. We plan to integrate OpenVPN protocol before the end of the year.
