How to set up VPN for Windows?

From the Namecheap VPN page, select your desired plan:

Namecheap Windows App setup starts with launching the app and signing into your Namecheap account:

After you sign in and press Connect VPN button, you can choose the location for your connection: either "Best available" or any country from the list. You can change locations later on this page as well.
We offer a choice of 75+ locations in 50 different countries.

When connection is established, you will see a "VPN Connected" message in the app window:

On the Advanced Settings page, you can find and manage more options. Enable features like the Kill Switch and choose your Connection protocols.

You may also want to enable features like:

  •     Kill Switch - it will disconnect your internet connection when Namecheap VPN is not available. You are welcome to check more details in this article.
  •     Startup which automatically launches your VPN when your computer restarts.
  •     Auto-Connect - this feature enables automatic connection to the last connected server upon launch.
