VersaVPN advertises itself as a VPN that offers a “complete package” that fits all, and we couldn’t agree more. There are two main packages offered by VersaVPN; Premium Plan and Dedicated Plan. The Premium VersaVPN service uses shared IPs and is packed with several attractive features necessary for any VPN user. There are 3 types of subscriptions available at the moment at very affordable prices compared to other VPN services that offer less features. The monthly membership costs $5.50 per month, quarterly membership costs $15.00 per 3 months and the annual membership costs $25 per year.
As for the Dedicated service, it features 3 dedicated dedicated IP packages covering the Americas, Europe and Asia at $15.00 per month.
VersaVPN accepts all major credit card payments, such as: Visa and Mastercard in which users can pay via the company’s Paypal or Brick gateway. For privacy-focused users, they can subscribe to any plan and pay anonymously with Bitcoin through the company’s Bitpay gateway. That’s not all, other local payment methods, like: money transfer or mobile money are also accepted in which users can pay through PaymentWall.
Free Trial & Refund
Sadly, VersaVPN does not offer a free trial. However, there is a 10-day money-back guarantee for users who do not like the service after purchasing a Premium (shared) subscription plan. Dedicated packages are not covered by a refund policy as clearly stated on their terms & conditions page:
“The Refund Policy shall be within the first ten (10) days of Premium VPN plan for monthly, quarterly, semi-annually or annual plan.The account holder can cancel anytime within this ten (10) days. If after the ten (10) days is finished, the client will not be entitled for any refund. If an Account Holder is terminated for violation of the terms of this T&C’s or otherwise there will not be any refund of any remaining account balance.”

We were given access to test the software client for Windows in order to fully evaluate the overall performance of VersaVPN in terms of speed, connection stability and traffic leakage. The installation process is very easy and did not take more than a few moments for the software app to be set up on our computer. The interface is very basic and not very attractive, but it is easy to navigate. In the main page, you will need to insert your VersaVPN credentials (username and password), and then hit “Login”. Next, there are several drop down menus where you can select the encryption protocol you want to connect to (OpenVPN/PPTP/L2TP) as well as a server list to choose from. We ran several DNS leak tests and the results were not bad in the sense that there was not actual leakage, however, the connection was not very accurate in the sense that when we were connected to Euro servers, the DNS test results were inaccurate. However, the results were consistent when we connected to US servers. In addition, we were able to bypass geo-restrictions and get access to HBO Go.
In this section, we will shed some light on some of the features provided by VersaVPN, including: encryption protocols, server network, bandwidth, platform compatibility, etc.
Encryption & Security
VersaVPN uses 256-bit encryption to support 3 basic tunneling protocols; OpenVPN, PPTP and L2TP. PPTP is no longer considered secure and L2TP can be detected by several firewalls these days since it uses port 500. However, we strongly suggest relying on OpenVPN as it is the most secure encryption protocol so far. In addition, VersaVPN’s firewalls are designed to protect its users from DDoS attacks as well as phishing and malware attacks.
Servers & Bandwidth
VersaVPN has a total of 60 servers spread across more than 20 countries, including: USA, UK, GERMANY, SPAIN, AUSTRIA, AUSTRALIA, ISRAEL, SWEDEN, SINGAPORE, HONG KONG, and so many more.
As for bandwidth, users can enjoy unlimited bandwidth on all plans.
VersaVPN is compatible with several operating systems, such as: Windows, Mac OS, Linux (Ubuntu, Fedora), Android and iOS. It is also compatible with Chrome and Firefox browsers along with a wide range of devices, including: desktops, laptops, smartphones, tablets, routers and Smart TVs.
Users can enjoy up to 3 simultaneous connections, which is not bad for the price.
P2P & Torrenting
Permitted. Users can download and share files unlimited without any restrictions.
VersaVPN provides more than one way of communication, including: email tickets, Facebook, Twitter, landline and a thorough Knowledgebase as well as setup guides and an F.A.Q section.
