Torrenting & P2P
Summary : Surprisingly very good!
Kepard is a Moldovan VPN service provider fairly known for providing very modest services at very affordable rates. While there are many VPN providers, in the present market, to which Kepard would stand pale in comparison, but the sheer fact is that, sometimes all people need is just about a few simple well-implemented features. This is what Kepard is basically good at upholding. Read through our Kepard review to know why this can be a brilliant VPN to use.
- Good speed and unlimited traffic
- Good clients and apps (Windows and Android)
- Free 15-day trial (also 30 free minutes a day)
- 3-day logging policy isn’t very worrying
Kepard’s infrastructural prowess, to say, is fairly modest. Its servers are located at primarily just about two continents, namely Europe and North America, and just about 8 major well-known countries make up that list. So no exotic server locations if you are looking for one.
All of the services provided by Kepard are over the three standard and widely used protocols – OpenVPN, L2TP, and PPTP. Users can choose to connect via their preferred option.
Performance from Kepard is just about impressive. It provides users with fast speeds and unlimited bandwidth. The speed tests results (without VPN, London server, Netherlands server) that we performed are shown below.
IP address allotments are carried out in a dynamic fashion and are shared in nature. DNS leak, as well as IP tests that were performed using Kepard came out pretty clean and we had no issues. Kepard allows up to two simultaneous connections at a given time, for those looking to access its VPN services from different devices.
You’d also be wise to note that to avail any P2P or Torrent services, Kepard states that its Netherlands server should be compulsorily used.
The privacy factor defining Kepard’s usage can be termed as acceptable on an overall basis. On the technical side of things, their networks are secured with 128-bit Blowfish encryption, although the site claims to provide up to 256-bit encryption. While the 128-bit encryption is fair enough for regular users, 256-bit encryption certainly offers better prospects.
Kepard’s logging policy is also something that one might come across as a little problematic, although that is certainly not much of an issue. It is known to keep logs for 3 days. Your original IP address, session start and finish timings along with your registered email address (only information that is kept after 3 days) are generally stored in the process. Kepard also clearly states, that they collaborate with Moldovan authorities if any subpoena is issued to them. However, 3 days being a very short duration means, it isn’t much of an issue.
Kepard has support for major platforms and devices. On the PC segment, there’s support for Windows, Linux, and Mac. Mobile users can use the VPN service making use of iOS and Android apps.
The Android and Windows client that Kepard offers is probably one of the best that VPN Squad has come across, so far. Naturally appearing the same, as far as looks go, it is also fairly simple and appears in sync with each other. Speeds are also very impressive in the Android app, as is shown below (without VPN ans with VPN).
Support is offered to customers mainly through a 24/7 email ticketing system. Although this system is totally basic in nature, it is highly efficient and responsive. There is also a short FAQ section that pertains to rather simple questions. A blog which isn’t very regular also adorns the website of Kepard.
Kepard basically offers three subscription plans for interested users. The monthly plan is set at $7, the three-month plan at $19 and the 6-month plan costs $35.
Payment systems that are available to users are a good number, although limited, such as Visa, Mastercard, and American Express. We’d definitely like to see the inclusion of Bitcoin, as a payment option, in the near future.
Kepard is known to offer a free trial of half an hour daily. However, don’t be surprised when you are offered another 15 days of premium VPN services as soon as you sign up, as that’s what we exactly found out. There is also a referral program in place which enables you to earn free premium services up to a period of 180 days.
Although relatively unknown, whatever information we found on the Internet, with regard to this Moldovan VPN service provider, seemed to be totally of good repute.
Kepard can be summed up as a service that offers simplicity and efficiency. They have fantastic Windows and Android applications and are known to provide very reliable services at a relatively lower price. Its free trials and referral system also come out on top.
