When it comes to price, NordVPN is considerably cheaper than ExpressVPN, at $59 per year compared to $99.95 per year. Both VPNs are compatible with Android, iOS, Windows, Mac and Linux, while NordVPN will also connect to Android TV. Both companies also offer a trial period of 30 days.
The encryption and free trial length are the same for both of these VPNs. NordVPN offers a slightly higher number of devices, at six compared with five. (Other VPNs allow you to use their service on an unlimited number of devices, so it’s worth researching these options if you plan on using the VPN on more than six devices.)
NordVPN has a higher number of servers, at 5,000+, compared to ExpressVPN’s 3,000+ servers. However, ExpressVPN has a considerably higher number of server locations, at 160 compared to NordVPN’s 60, which could be beneficial depending on which countries you plan to connect to with your VPN. NordVPN makes it easy to figure out if their server locations will match yours on its website. Similarly, ExpressVPN makes it simple to find out where its 160 servers are located online.
NordVPN offers the option of a dedicated IP add-on for $5.83 per month (or $70 per year). This will give you the ability to access IP-restricted networks while still maintaining your anonymity. NordVPN is also compatible with businesses and companies through NordLayer, their business-tier subscription option.
