Both technologies help bypass blocking and protect user privacy. But VPN is more advanced in technical terms.

If you don’t mind installing additional software and are willing to pay more for increasing the speed of processes and the degree of anonymity, and also want to protect the transmitted data as much as possible, choose a VPN. Find out more at best-proxies.ru

If you only need an anonymizer that does not provide for reliable data storage, then it will be enough to set up a proxy server. This does not require special software. Plus, in most cases, paid proxies are cheaper than paid VPNs. But if you need a quality service without restrictions, then in both cases you will have to pay.
