I need some advice - I was considering renting a offshore vps (not too expensive) so I could get all my downloading (rapidleech, torrent, usenet, ect.) taken care of securely . . . but then I started thinking why not VPN?
what particularly got me thinking is when I saw the site ivacy.com which charges bout $15/m for unlimited VPN, usenet, and also a bonus megaupload premium account.
So what is better? I know there is also free vpn but I imagine its bad idea to dl copyrighted content through them, and basically the main reason im looking for hosting is so I can have encrypted downloads, which will be a must in college
