Overplay is another contender in the highly contested VPN market. As opposed to other VPN providers, Overplay provides two different services to serve two different purposes. These are:
• SmartDNS – This technology gives an internet surfer access to all the restricted websites for streaming unlimited movie and music. Moreover, SmartDNS does not require any VPN application and can only be used by making a few easy changes in the internet settings of the user’s computer. One crucial advantage SmartDNS has over VPN is speed. SmartDNS allows unblocking of restricted websites without any loss in speed. However, SmartDNS is not designed to provide security and anonymity to the user.
• Overplay VPN – While SmartDNS provides access to restricted websites but compromises on security, Overplay’s VPN service does not require any such compromises. It allows access to all the restricted websites with complete encryption of data for secure and anonymous browsing. Moreover, Overplay VPN supports Skype and MSN, as well.
