Do you need a Turkish IP address? Maybe you are from Turkey, but now live outside your mother country and need a Turkish IP to reach some special content. Or maybe you live outside Turkey, but want to play games, see TV shows and enjoy stuff only available to those with a Turkish IP address. Keep on reading, because the solution is near!
There are several ways in which you can get a Turkish IP address, but the best solution and easiest to get up and running is probably to subscribe to a VPN service providing servers in Turkey which will give you an IP address in Turkey. In our IP Address Guide we have reviewed lots of VPN services and there are some providers in general better than others, but the most important is still to take a closer look at the speeds they provide in the actual nation you are interested. In this case we have therefore tested the best and most popular VPN services to see which of them provide best speeds and connection as you connect to their servers in Turkey. But, before we continue, let me just tell you a few words what a VPN connection is.
What is a VPN
A VPN is a virtual tunnel created between your computer and another computer somewhere in the world. All traffic between these computers are encrypted, making it safe and unreachable for others, even if you surf the Internet in a public open WiFi network. When you are connected to that computer all your movement and activity on the Internet will seem to originate from that given server you are connected to, and not from where you are actually located. Again this means that as you are connected to a VPN server in Turkey you will afterwards surf the Internet with a Turkish IP address and all content formerly unavailable to you because you did not have a Turkish IP will be opened up at once.
Best VPN providers offering a Turkish IP address
Writing this article we have tested HideMyAss, StrongVPN, Overplay, SimpleVPN, IPVanish, PureVPN and VPN4All. If you want to read reviews of the different services, visit VPN tools. The service you should not pick for sure if you want an IP in Turkey is SimpleVPN, because they have no servers in Turkey at all. If all you want is an answer telling you what service to use to get a Turkish IP our answer is:
- If you need a solution for a long period of time: StrongVPN or PureVPN
- If you need a solution for some days, weeks or a month: HideMyAss or PureVPN
[stextbox id=”info”]We have based our recommendations on the fact that StrongVPN is more expensive than HideMyAss and require a 3 month subscription (minimum 3 months with deluxe package (15USD a month – totally 45 USD). HideMyAss is 11 USD a month and you can make a one-month subscription only.[/stextbox]
