As well as offering a fast and reliable service at a low cost, Easy-Hide-IP offers features that no other VPN provider offers such as choosing your IP address, changing your IP automatically every few minutes and choosing which applications are protected and which are not.
Easy-Hide-IP it is great value for money with a recurring subscription priced at $4.95/month and a year’s pre-paid access priced very nicely at just $29.95
Payment processing is handled by PayPal but those more privacy aware can make payments using Perfect Money. Unfortunately they do not currently accept BitCoin.

60 servers in 17 countries with unlimited data and unlimited switches
Based in the United Kingdom under current legislation Easy-Hide-IP is obliged to store basic connection information for a minimum of 12 months.
Unlimited email support is offered 7 days a week. I have found their support team to be very responsive and most of the time my queries were resolved within a few hours.
24/7 chat support would be a welcome addition here.
The Windows app is really the winner for me with the Easy-Hide-IP platform, as well as all the usual features you’d expect to see in a dedicated VPN application such as choosing your country and server, auto-connecting and startup etc. the application also packs in a whole host of other features that other providers don’t offer.
You can choose the specific IP address you want to use from a dropdown list next to each server location.
As well as being able to choose your specific IP address Easy-Hide-IP also allows you to automatically change your IP address every 1, 5, 30 or 60 minutes, everything up to once every 24 hours.
This really is a great feature that no other VPN provider I have used offers. It currently only works with their VPN protocol and not with the standard VPN protocols such as PPTP or OpenVPN.
When using their custom protocol users are able to choose which apps are redirected through the system and which are not.
You could for example have Firefox configured to use the VPN connection with a specific IP for normal browsing but then keep Chrome aside using your real IP for placing orders or Internet banking.
Within the application you can place a star next to the servers you most frequently use, making it much easier to find those servers next time you want to login.
Easy-Hide-IP’s website states a maximum data rate of 10mb/s which is more than enough for most HD video streaming and in practice I have found this rate to be fairly accurate while connecting from europe.
Easy-Hide-IP is one of my favorite VPN providers available on the market today, the ability to choose which IP address to use and which applications to redirect are fantastic and I love the auto-changing IP feature that gives extra protection by jumping me all around the world every minute :)
The only things I’d like to see are BitCoin support and maybe live chat support
