There is a long-time contractor in Hong Kong handling the VPN service, especially the proxy in since 2007.
Since the size of the company is not large, there are not many servers installed in the country. However, since it operates for China, special protocols that are not provided by other VPN services, can be used.
Since we have a mirror site, we can apply from China .
It is also possible to configure the VPN, so that only the blocked sites are connected by proxy, especially for those who frequently open both Chinese sites and overseas sites.
They also have one server in China. 12VPN is useful even when you watch Chinese video sites from outside China.
In particular, I asked 30% discount coupon for BestVPNforChina.com to be issued.
When you enter “BESTVPNFORCHINA” in the coupon field at the time of application, the usage fee will be 30% OFF.
Since July 2017 Torrents have become available only from Amsterdam and Stockholm’s servers.
Three features of 12VPN
We will introduce three unique characteristics of 12VPN not found in other VPN services.
1. Various Protocols for China
Numerous protocols such as ShadowSocks, IKEv2, IPSec, OpenWEB, OpenVPN, China Hybrid, Secure DNS, StealthVPN, SoftEther, etc. can be used. I will introduce some distinctive protocols.
This proxy developed for go over China censorship.
It was developed to go through the Great Firewall of China with as much as speed as possible.
There are certain restrictions such as not being able to use Flash, but depending on the server, it can communicate at speeds faster than a VPN
This is= a web proxy customized by 12VPN.
When browsing Chinese websites, VPN is automatically turned off. Other interesting settings such as the turning on the VPN on automatically while browsing a blocked website, other overseas and broken websites. can be used. It is a protocol that balances high encryption and speed because it is communicating with TLS 1.2.
This service can be set up from a browser, or it can be set up from the network on Windows and Mac OS, and it can connect to the Internet or a specific movie site at high speed. Compared to a VPN, it can connect to the Internet at higher speeds.
There is also an option to connect from Apple Airport, Apple TV, or a router. Especially it is set up for China, so it can be used at high speed.
2. Available from Chrome extensions
There are several VPN services offering Chrome’s extensions, but trustworthy VPNs do not make much sense even if they have extensions.
Using the proxy like 12VPN, demonstrates the power of Chrome’s advanced features.
Unlike a VPN, a proxy can be set up to be used on a per browser basis. For example you can use a proxy server to have a foreign IP on Chrome, and at the same time launch Firefox and browse Chinese sites with a Chinese IP.
3. Unlimited number of devices
Since there is no limit on the number of simultaneous connections, it is also possible to share it with family and friends.
However, simultaneous connection to the same server with the same account is prohibited.
Detailed information on 12VPN
Having a location in Hong Kong is a considerable advantage in terms of privacy protection.
Hong Kong is not involved in spy agreements such as 5-Eyes, so it does not obligate company to retain data, such as servers, by law.
Therefore, the possibility of on passing server information to third countries, or other institutions is low.
Depending on the method of payment, only the user information necessary for logging in is saved.
We guarantee that no accessed data, IP, etc. are recorded at all. Only server connection information and connection errors are recorded for troubleshooting. They are retained for only a few days.
Although correspondence is only through e-mail, the reply is both quick and polite. As far as impressions, the response time and the polite responses are top class compared to other VPN services.
12VPN is suitable for users with various needs in China. Compared to other major providers, they are flexible, so if you contact support, we will tell you about various things.
In accord with Chinese regulations, the application name does not use the name 12 VPN.
The app is very simple and easy to use.
When using Shadowsock, you need to download a dedicated client application.
I tried all clients available on the iPhone and iPad, but this is currently the best.
Windows, Mac OS, and Android applications can be downloaded for free via the official website.
Payment methods are abundant, including credit cards, Paypal, Alipay , Unionpay, Bitcoin , but it also supports payment from TenPay and WeChat.
Before there was a Basic plan and an Unlimited plan available, but now it seems they are only offering an Unlimited plan.
It is available without a bandwidth limit.
There are three plans to choose from: 1 month, 6 months, or 12 months.
When you enter “BESTVPNFORCHINA” in the coupon field at the time of application, the price will be 30% OFF.
|1 month plan||US＄10.99 / month|
|6 month plan||US＄54.00 (US＄8.99 / month)|
|12 month plan||US＄49.99 (if coupon used US $ 4.19 / month)|
The lid from director
- ShadowSocks available
- There is no limit on the number of connections
- Can sign up from mainland China
- By using the server in China, you can access the site inside China from abroad
- Because the location is in Hong Kong, it is not affected by Spy Agreements etc
- Separate application and settings are required for setting up of iOS and Android
When Shadowsocks, and OpenWEB are used, the server location is in Hong Kong. These two are the biggest reasons to recommend 12VPN.
Although, there are some limitations, the speed is fairly fast compared to a normal VPN.
Most of those who actually do web related work in China are using Shadowsocks.
