It’s such a great idea to use a VPN on Linux because, this lets you use other services not available in your country, along with the ability to free yourself from spyware and other nasty things on the web. Using VirtualBox, you can install Ubuntu, or Debian, and then run one of the select VPN’s of your choice (you will see below).
The problem is that only some VPN’s come in Unlimited subscriptions. Also, only some VPN’s are compatible with Ubuntu or Debian. I only mention Debian because I one day bought a subscription from VPN Unlimited to only find that it only works on Debian. Debian is a good place to learn Linux if you like the command line, and the Gnome user interface looks nothing much different than Fedora.
It was a good learning experience to try out Debian and to use a VPN on it, while still booted into Windows with the use of Virtual Box. I literally only payed for that subscription and everything else was free.
So if you want to use a VPN on Linux inside VirtualBox, these are the most common VPN services offering Unlimited subscriptions online (for a limited time), that also support Ubuntu. The ones that don’t support Ubuntu are listed too only because I was going through the Unlimited subs in Stack Social (which is a popular site which sells these services):
|VPN’s||Works on Ubuntu?|
|iPinator VPN for ubuntu||Lifetime subscription||Maybe|
|VPN Forever?||Lifetime subscription||Not Sure|
|VPN Unlimited||Lifetime subscription||No (but will on Debian)|
|VPN Secure||Lifetime subscription||Possibly?, supposed to connect through Open VPN|
|Pure VPN||Lifetime subscription||This guide will allow you to connect to VPN connections on Ubuntu using Pure VPN|
|ZoogTV VPN||Lifetime subscription||No|
|RA4W VPN||Lifetime subscription||No|
|Hotspot Shield Elite VPN||Lifetime subscription||No|
|Windscribe VPN||Lifetime subscription||Using Open VPN in Ubuntu|
If you join the site here, you can then sign up and check out their offers on Unlimited subscriptions with VPN’s. Make sure to stick to the list and only buy the one that is supported by Ubuntu. To make the most of your money, do some searching on Google to make sure that the VPN will for sure run on Ubuntu.
Sometimes it says it will work but it might not, just make sure it will by installing the client without registering. If the app launches and functions, then you know your safe.
I had an issue with running VPN Unlimited in Debian, within Virtual Box, on an AMD 64-bit machine. But VPN Unlimited did work with the same setup in Debian on an Intel Core i7 machine.
You never know!. Hope this helps :).
