Welcome to VPN.com
Thank you for visiting, my name is Michael Gargiulo. I am the 26-year old founder of VPN.com and over the next three minutes I am going to explain to you who we are, what we stand for and the future of commerce and research we are building.
Over the next 25 years, VPN will change how we use the Internet to learn, research and connect visitors like you to better products and services that protect our privacy and way of life.
We have recognized the gap in information that exists when consumers and businesses want details and the ability to quickly compare those details across all possible options of software they want to buy. This quality information and more importantly, quick access to it, is critical on anyone’s path to purchase.
While this issue is present in the VPN market, where more than 900 different VPN providers exist, it exists in just about every other industry you can imagine as well. From software services like antivirus, messaging apps and firewalls to physical goods like smartphones, alarm systems, and credit cards, consumers are always looking for more reviews and research to make the best decisions possible.
Valuable research is the backbone of the Internet. It is the reason why companies like Amazon, Wikipedia, Hotels.com and even Google exist. At VPN.com, we will start our journey by dominating the entire $100 billion VPN market before we quickly expand our efforts to dozens of similar industries where these large information gaps exist.
Our goal is to help 1 billion people make significantly more informed decisions when buying products and staying safe online by 2025. And when we reach this goal, the VPN.com brand will be assisting 90 million visitors per month in 35 different languages.
On our website, you will find it structured through list of links and research that we have compiled to help connect you with the brands that can serve you best. Our website will be going through many updates over the next year so please pardon our dust as we improve your experience on VPN.com and the overall quality and depth of information that we provide on a give topic.
This journey started on February 22, 2019 when we launched VPN.com after relentlessly pursuing the previous owner of the domain name across the globe for more than four years. He just so happened to live in Cupertino, California, or the heart of Silicon Valley, about one mile from Apple’s headquarters.
After launching the brand, we recognized that your trust was the single most important part of our success. If we can help you find one product, like a VPN, and offer a quality experience in the process, we could do this for many other verticals of privacy and security software.
You will notice that our pages are constantly being expanded and added to. We have numerous researchers all over the globe adding to our information and while the VPN market is our home base, we are very excited about bringing our skills to other markets as well.
Since November 2019, our team of VPN experts, who collectively have more than 56 years of experience in the VPN industry, have been compiling research spanning 188,000 data points across more than 900 VPN services. Needless to say, we love spreadsheets 🙂
By providing information across all VPN service providers and across all VPN use cases, we realized our research could help any visitor find their ideal VPN from the most recognized name in the industry.
In addition to our research, VPN.com is built on the idea of delivering more privacy to those looking for it. In many cases this means we stand up and fight for privacy rights and privileges as we have done with some of the world’s largest companies like Netflix, Facebook and Equifax.
VPN.com is a brand respected for our privacy values and our thorough research in our pursuit of helping billions protect what is truly theirs.
The future of privacy and commerce online stands not with individual brands but with those connecting customers to those individual brands. VPN.com is one of the most instantly respected names online and this competitive advantage will be ours, forever. With this name we will change how people view their privacy and make decisions when selecting which products they want to incorporate into their lives.
I hope you have enjoyed our story and progress thus far. We are just getting started.
