Astrill what you did is a no-no
Today I was browsing the web checking various VPN providers and their offers. Once in a while I compare major VPN services, mainly to see if they added new servers, new VPN protocols etc.
On my great but unpleasant surprise I noticed that Astrill, by many reviews a VPN service provider positioned among top 10, totally ripped off HideMyAss’ web page. Really, Astrill? Is that how you intend to win new customers? Hardly..
Keep reading and let me show you.
Astrill – Copycat VPN Service
Last year (2011), back in June, HideMyAss introduced a fresh web site design. The Server Info page features a descriptive title which is briefly announcing the number of available serves and a total number of IP’s. Also, down the page there is a clean chart representing growth of servers and IP’s by months.
Oddly enough, Astrill recently updated their web page featuring the same title and same chart. Even some sentences are identical. The only difference is the inferior number of servers… and yeah, of course — dominant color is different (blue).
Compare it for yourself, it’s unbelievable!
HideMyAss’ main title:
Virtually reside and hide behind 241 VPN servers located in 42 countries with 27’500+ IP addresses
Astrill’s main page title:
Virtually reside and hide behind 114 VPN servers located in 46 countries with 4,404+ IP addresses.
A quick web search will find a bunch of negative comments on Astrill’s service. C’mon Astrill, can’t you come up with something original?! This fiasco casts a big shade on your name. Phony web site, phony service. Therefore, I undoubtedly recommend you to avoid Astrill.
Just my two cents.
