    Hi,

    I would like to know that is it better to use VPN for tools like venomseo PRO and/or creating multiple accounts on web 2.0's ?

    Or proxy is better ?

    Multiple private proxies will probably be faster and cheaper than using a VPN.

    Most spam tools support switching between multiple random proxies, but even if your particular VPN solution has the ability to use multiple IPs then most spam tools won't support switching IPs on your particular VPN program and you'll have to do it manually.

    Also there is more CPU and RAM overhead with a VPN because of the encryption that goes on between your PC and the VPN host.

    There is no security advantage to using a VPN over a private proxy because the connection between the VPN host and your target spam site is not encrypted (unless you're connecting to a spam site that uses SSL).

    Thanks for a detailed answer,

    Isn't VPN will be cheaper ? Because of I buy 10 Private proxies they will cost me $10 a month so $120 a year and VPN is around $70 a year.

    And when it comes to creating multiple accounts by hand on web 2.0 properties, will you recommend me a VPN ?

    You need as many IPs as possible so unless you're getting 10 IPs with your VPN for $70 then the price will go up. If you sign up to all your web 2.0s with 1 IP then they can easily find and delete all your accounts at once. In that case you may as well just use your home connection.

    Small differences in price isn't really the main issue when you can earn hundreds / thousands of $$ with the accounts you make. Getting the accounts to stay up so they can earn money is the main thing to be concerned about.

    If you are manually signing up (using a browser) I would buy as many private proxies as you can afford and use the FoxyProxy Firefox addon for easy proxy switching. For example if you have a bunch of web 2.0s and you want to sign up for an account at each one every day, I would start with 7 proxies, one for each day of the week.

    The best solution is to use free open proxies (because of the huge number of IPs that are available), but because they are so slow and flaky you really need to use an automated web 2.0 sign up solution if you're going to use open proxies.

    Just one question. I have heard many say good things bout HMA PRO VPN. Costs $11 / month and it gives roughly 16,500 IP's. If this is the truth then I think everyone should be switching to them. Maybe I'll find out myself someday.

    If everyone switched to it all of the IPs would get burned like the public proxies!

    Its really hard to buy proxies each and every month...

    Can VPN work fine with these tools ?
