We're two guys from Melbourne who spent over two years building a VPN with features that we wanted to exist. Our VPN comes packed with original features that makes our service easy to use; and coming from an automation background, we automated as much as we could ( and continue to do so ).

We are offering AHB members a special introductory offer which will allow you to get two years for the price of one. To take advantage of this offer, simply use the coupon code "welovebeer" after your free trial expires on the checkout page. This will allow you to purchase 24 months for $83.58 USD.

We allow all users a 3 day free trial to test out our service to make sure it is a good fit for their needs - we also don't require payment information during the trial period. We would love for AHB members to come and have a play around with our service and see what they think.

Some of our unique features include;

Streaming Automation - Connect to the VPN region nearest to your location and still access content from overseas streaming services. We take away the need for you to jump around VPN regions. You can also set regions for specific streaming services. For example you can set your Netflix region independently - similar to how a smartDNS service works. This means no more searching for the "right" server to connect to. Just connect to the VPN and we take care of the rest.

Device Profiles - You can have up to 100. Each profile allows you to have unique settings for when you log in. For example, you can have one for your computer, another for your iPad, another for your partner, another for your child, etc.

Advanced Port Forwarding - You no longer need to keep track of IP addresses or configure your software to work with the VPN ports you are given. Just tell us which port to forward to and which device profile and it's done. For example, if you set up a web server on your computer and enable port forwarding, regardless of which VPN server you ever connect to ( any server, any region ), to access your web server you would go to username-mydevice.oeck.me:portNumber - It stays the same :) It is also great for torrenting.

Ad, Malware, Social Network and Adult blocker - You can pick and choose which ( if any ) of the blockers you want enabled for each device profile. This allows you to turn on Adult blocking for children's devices but keep yours open. It is also very extensive and does a good job of blocking most ad, tracker and malware domains.

Custom filter - You can take the blockers even further by adding your own domain block-list on a per-device level. This gives you complete control over each and every device. This is very powerful and is easily built on.

Custom DNS - You can set your DNS on a per-device level. You can choose for the VPN to give you complete control to your DNS, or set your DNS and still allow the VPN to take control over certain domains in order for the channels and blocking to still work. This means you can even use your own DNS if you wanted to.

Automated server selection - When a user connects to a region they will always connect to a server with the most resources available. This completely removes the need to server-surf on the users end. They just connect to a region and they will be sure to jump on the server within that region that has the most resources available at that point in time.

All of our VPN servers run without ANY hard drives at all. We have gone to great lengths to make sure our users get the best service and the most secure one. As a VPN service it is fast and secure with fantastic privacy.

Hi everyone,

Just a quick bump before this deal runs out. If anyone has any questions, please feel free to ask.

Presumably people are interested in VPNs for diverse reasons, but why would home brewers in particular want to create one?

There is reasons why people are using vpns , it may well not be relevent to brewing as such but there is users here that like to keep big brother out of their lives
