    If you're using Windows, you might notice that when your VPN disconnects for some reason, traffic will continue to flow and your real IP can be exposed (at least, this is what use to happen to me under WinXP). To avoid this, you could use a linux virtual machine and start your VPN through the command line. If the VPN fails, the connection will freeze.

    You can also tunnel your VPN through TOR (a tunnel within a tunnel). You'll need to alter your VPN from UDP transmit to TCP in order to get it through TOR. Routing will be the tricky part. The VPN will try to encapsulate all traffic, including what has to go through the onion router. It can be done, but it's really slow.

    Use a dedicated ip address to connect to the vpn.

    I've been using a dedicated VPN for years and I've never lost my connection except when there's a problem with my internet connection. So, as long as you have a stable internet connection, you have nothing to worry about.

    Your VPS provider will occasionally reboot Xen/OpenVZ to install a kernel update due to a security patch. This can disrupt your connection, as can a DDos attack on the node your box is located. I would imagine that commercial VPN providers face simular challenges.

    The OP is being prudent in his attempt to avoid any ban from the site he's visiting. It's good to have some simple fail safe in effect to protect from network errors.

    I read somewhere a solution for Windows that would kill the connection if the VPN was disrupted in anyway (thereby protecting your IP). I really don't know enough about Windows to help you, but you could probably find a solution with a little google-foo. Otherwise, try using Linux and connect to your VPN using a terminal command.

    Use OpenVPN, if the VPN drops connection it will also fail any new connections until you reconnect it. That's been my experience on Windows anyway.
