VPN servers – who has the most?

A provider with a large selection of VPN servers will be able to provide a more robust service, and we've picked out the six with the highest server count.

VPN servers - an image shows the word VPN spelled out by several red block amidst a sea of grey boxes.

If you’re looking for a VPN and you want to know which service gives you the broadest selection of VPN servers, you’ve come to the right place. This will understandably be a top consideration when determining which provider you want to use, because a vast server array comes with a lot of benefits, such as a reduced risk of server congestion and (in a lot of cases) more countries to connect through.

We’ve picked out six VPN providers that have the broadest selection of servers, and we’ve listed both the total number of servers for each one, and the total number of countries in which these servers are located. For added convenience, we’ve provided mini overviews that will let you know which is the fastest VPN, the best gaming VPN, or whatever else it is that makes each one special.

Providers with the most VPN servers:

VPN servers from Private Internet Access. Image shows the company logo.

1. Private Internet Access

Private Internet Access (PIA) has more than 35,000 servers spread out across 78 countries.

Private Internet Access overview:

Server totals 35,000+ servers in 78+ countries
Compatible games League of Legends, Halo Infinite, Valorant, PUBG, YouTube, Disney Plus, Netflix, BBC iPlayer, and more
Free trial None
Money-back guarantee 30 days
Simultaneous connections 10
Router support Yes


  • Highest overall total of servers
  • Decent server selection
  • Exclusive lower price for PCGN readers


  • No third-party audits
  • One of the slower providers on this list

The selection of servers offered by Private Internet Access is unrivaled. While there are other providers who might have servers in a broader selection of countries, none of the others come close to matching the sheer number of servers. You might expect that the high server count means that it’ll have a high price tag, but it’s actually a pretty cheap VPN service – in part because we have an exclusive deal for our readers.

Beyond its server count, it also lets you have up to ten simultaneous connections. This is more than you’ll get from a lot of providers, and it’ll certainly be enough for most households. If you live alone, it’d be enough for you to keep it on all the time with pretty much all of your devices.

Add built-in ad-blocking functionality to the mix and you’ve got a pretty solid VPN service. Private Internet Access might not be quite as fast as some of the other providers on this list, but there’s still a lot to like and admire about this service.

VPN servers for CyberGhost. Image shows the company logo.

2. CyberGhost

CyberGhost has more than 7,400 servers spread out across 91 countries.

CyberGhost overview:

Server totals 7,400+ in 94+ countries
Compatible services/games FIFA, PUBG, GTA Online, Overwatch, Netflix, Disney Plus, Prime Vide, Hulu, and more
Free trial 24 hours
Money-back guarantee 45 days
Simultaneous connections 7
Router support Yes


  • 45-day money-back guarantee
  • Broad streaming compatibility


  • Slower than some other top providers
  • No third-party privacy audits

While this provider is in quite a distant second place when you only take the server count into consideration, it does actually have a broader range than Private Internet Access, covering an impressive 91 countries. If you travel around a lot and have a lot of international matters to take care of, this large server range could be really useful in letting you access the websites and services of other regions.

CyberGhost is a good VPN for streaming, and its high server count is a contributing factor in that. It’s compatible with most of the major streaming platforms, and even if one of the servers gets blocked, you can just switch between the many others until you find one that works.

CyberGhost also offers a day-long VPN free trial, giving you a chance to get the lay of this digital land by checking out how well it works and testing it out on your favorite services and platforms. If that’s not quite enough time, it also offers a 45-day money-back guarantee that allows you to get a full refund at any point within the first month and a half if you’re not satisfied.

VPN servers for PureVPN. Image shows the company logo.

3. PureVPN

PureVPN has over 6,500 servers spread out across 78 countries. Its pricing works out as $2.29 per month.

PureVPN overview:

Locations 6,500+ servers in 78+ countries
Compatible games/services New World, Counter Strike: GO, League of Legends, Fortnite, Netflix, BBC iPlayer, Disney Plus, and more
Free trial $0.99 week-long paid trial
Money-back guarantee 30 days
Simultaneous connections 10
Router support Yes (PPTP and OpenVPN only)


  • Regular third-party audits
  • Decent number of simultaneous connections


  • Limited Linux support
  • Router support only under PPTP and OpenVPN

Though its server count and range fall short of both CyberGhost and Private Internet Access, that doesn’t mean that PureVPN doesn’t have anything special to offer. Indeed, if you’re looking to get the most private VPN, then this may be the ideal choice for you.

So what makes this service so good for privacy? Well, like many other providers, it has a no-logs VPN, but unlike most of the others, it actually submits itself to a third-party audit in order to confirm that it is genuinely not keeping any logs.

If you want to test it out, PureVPN also has a trial plan that lets you use all of its services for a week for just $0.99 USD. It’s a pity that this isn’t a free trial (as it once was) but you’re still paying next to nothing for a chance to test out the full service.

VPN servers for Ivacy VPN. Image shows the company logo.

4. Ivacy VPN

Ivacy VPN has 5,700 servers spread out across over 100 countries.

Ivacy VPN overview:

Server totals 5,700+ servers in 100+ countries
Compatible services/games Dota 2, Call of Duty: Warzone, Minecraft, Overwatch, BBC iPlayer, Disney Plus, Hulu, Netflix, and more
Free trial $0.99 week-long paid trial
Money-back guarantee 30 days
Simultaneous connections 10
Router support  Yes


  • Military-grade 256-bit encryption
  • Servers in over 100 countries
  • Exclusive low price for PCGN readers


  • No Apple kill switch
  • No Linux app

While 5,700 servers might be a dip in the water compared to Private Internet Access’s 35,000, with a range of over 100 countries, Ivacy VPN covers more of the world than any of the other services mentioned in this list.

Using military-grade 256-bit encryption, Ivacy VPN is another secure VPN that’s going to be good for any of the more privacy-conscious internet users. As an added bonus, there’s an exclusive deal for our readers that gets you five years of VPN coverage for what works out as just $1 per month.

Although Ivacy VPN doesn’t exactly have a free trial, like PureVPN, you can try it out for a week for just $0.99 USD. Of course, it would be much nicer not to have to enter your payment details before you trust a business, but you’re still only paying a small price to gain access to all its features for a week.

VPN servers for NordVPN. Image shows the company logo.

5. NordVPN

NordVPN has 5,300+ servers spread out across 60 countries.

NordVPN overview:

Server totals 5,300+ servers in 60+ countries
Compatible services/games Dota 2, World of Warcraft, Call of Duty: Warzone, GTA Online, Netflix, BBC iPlayer, Hulu, Prime Video, and more
Free trial No free trial
Money-back guarantee 30 days
Simultaneous connections 6
Router support Yes


  • Fastest VPN service
  • Works with most streaming services


  • Smaller selection of server locations (even though total remains high)
  • Slightly more expensive than many others

This is a provider that many readers will have probably heard about before. While NordVPN’s server count and range may not be the absolute highest, that doesn’t mean that it’s something to be sniffed at – there are many providers out there who offer fewer than 1,000 servers.

The biggest selling point for this VPN is probably its speed. It’s definitely the fastest provider on this list. If your internet service provider (ISP) is slowing your connection speeds because you’re using a lot of bandwidth, not only will NordVPN help to stop this from happening, but it might help make everything go a little faster.

This is particularly handy for streaming, and as it happens, NordVPN is compatible with the majority of the major streaming platforms. It even has specially designated servers for that very purpose.

VPN servers for Surfshark. Image shows the company logo.

6. Surfshark

Surfshark has 3,200+ servers spread out across 65 countries.

Surfshark overview:

Server totals 3,200+ servers in 65+ countries
Compatible services/games Fortnite, League of Legends, Counter Strike: GO, Overwatch, YouTube, Hulu, Prime Video, Netflix, and more
Free trial One week
Money-back guarantee 30 days
Simultaneous connections Unlimited
Router support Yes


  • Unlimited simultaneous connections allowed
  • Seven day free trial in place


  • Smallest server selection (on this list)
  • Fewer server locations than other lists

Like NordVPN, the server totals for Surfshark might look quite small when compared to some other providers mentioned in this list, but remember, it’s still in the top six of all VPN providers.

What makes Surfshark so appealing is the fact that it allows you to use it on an unlimited number of devices. This is great for anybody wanting to protect their whole household – even if you live with ten other people who all want to use it on all of their devices at the same time.

It’s also one of the few major services to provide any substantial kind of free trial. This one lasts for an entire week, so that gives you plenty of time to check out how it runs with your favourite games, streaming services, and websites. After that, Surfshark still has the standard 30-day money-back guarantee in place too, giving you plenty of wiggle room.

How we found the VPN server totals

We put this list together by checking the server totals of all the biggest VPN providers and then listing them from the largest number of servers to the smallest. We have never seen a provider with more of than Private Internet Access has, with the other services on this list making up the overall top 6. Of course, if you are interested in getting a VPN, there are a few other factors to consider when making your decision, including:

  • Pricing: VPNs vary in price significantly, and if you’re on a tighter budget you’ll have to look carefully at the different plans – sometimes you pay more in one go, but then it works out as a cheaper monthly cost.
  • Server locations: Having lots of servers can be good for avoiding server congestion, but it won’t be that convenient if you want to connect through a specific region that it doesn’t have any servers in. Always be sure to check a VPN’s server locations.
  • Service compatibility: Do you want to use a VPN to enhance your experience with a game or streaming service? If so, it’s worth researching their compatibility, as some services block VPN servers. We have listed a few compatible options in the tables in this list, but if you want to check something else, you can find answers with a quick Google search.
  • Simultaneous connections: Is the VPN for you, or is it for others? If you want to protect the internet privacy of your whole household, then it will be worth going for something like Surfshark which allows for an unlimited number of simultaneous connections. If you just want to use it specifically on one device, then you won’t need to worry about this so much, but even if it’s just for you, you might want it across a few devices at once.
