Now you can shop from in Dutch

By a coincidence we recently bumped into the news that (German Amazon) is now also available in Dutch. If you prefer shopping in the German Amazon Store, but still in Dutch, then you can do so now.

It was in the following article that we read about how you can visit in both English and Dutch. This is brilliant in many ways. Since Germany has a population near to 80,000,000 people there are lots of people there who do not speak German, or at least before their home languages to German. That has been fixed by recently as they have added support for both the English and the Dutch language. In that way you can read more about the different products in both Dutch and English, and you can get instructions on shopping and much more in your own language.

What should you buy on Amazon if you do so? And why shop from the German Amazon store instead of the Dutch Amazon store? If you live in the Netherlands you should probably by from your local Amazon Store. But, there might be some products that you can not get access to in the Dutch Amazon Store, which you however can buy in the German store. If that is so, then this will come really useful for you. Then you can also forward your packages from Germany to the Netherlands easily (if that is needed as does not send all sorts of deliveries to other countries), and in a few minutes from now you can have ordered your first package from in Dutch and get it sent to your home address in the Netherlands.

We have not tried this ourselves yet, but it seems to work very well, so go ahead and visit the German Amazon store in Dutch to give it a try.

Is it cheaper on than on

The products available in both stores normally run with the same prices. But, if you visit you will simply suffer, as there are so few products available. You can not buy lots of Amazon products (like Fire Tablets, Amazon Echo), you can not buy the most modern cell phones (Samsung Galaxy S7) and so much more. And that is why you will want to visit in Dutch and shop from there instead.

Which is the best VPN provider in the Netherlands?

I noticed that you wrote an article about how to get a Dutch IP address. My question is which VPN provider is the best for the Netherlands? I am going to stay there for seven days in a hotel with free wireless Internet connection, but heard that it is not safe really to use such a connection, so which VPN provider should I use to secure my Internet connection and privacy while staying in Amsterdam? This is also important because I will do some work during my stay, which means I will have to use my credit card online, and I would rather not have anyone stealing that information as I use the open networks and hotspots around. Thanks a lot for your help!

best dutch vpnThat was a brilliant question, and as you said, very important to protect your information and privacy even while out traveling using WiFi in hotels and restaurants. This is not really our subject, so I will just write an answer based on information I have been “stealing” from the IP Address Guide in their article on how to get a Dutch IP address. In their article they tested several VPN providers for their speeds and also amount of servers and IP addresses in the Netherlands, and based on their results I would say that the best VPN provider in the Netherlands is IPVanish. It might be surprising as the article itself recommends the usage of HideMyAss, but as I see their speeds can be a bit unstable, so I would rather go for IPVanish which seems to have a stable download speed and is very easy to use. You can of course use HideMyAss as well, since they are the biggest provider with several servers and several thousands IP addresses in the Netherlands available, so you will always find server with great speeds, but it might require quite a lot of connecting and disconnecting and trying the different servers before you find the right one, so that is why I believe that IPVanish might be just as good.

Not sure if this information will help you or not. If you want to know more about one of the services, read the IPVanish or the HideMyAss review written by Christine Wilson.

How to watch Dutch TV online from outside Holland?

Often most broadcasts and TV shows broadcasted in Holland are available online to everyone online, wherever you are in the world. This is easy and great, and a wonderful way to stay updated on what is going on in the Netherlands, wherever you are in the world. But, some stations and during special sports events, musical events and so on the TV stations make their online broadcasts only available to people located inside the borders of Holland. Thus you are in need of a Dutch IP address to watch these TV shows, and without that you will only see a black screen or get some message that this TV program is only available to people in the Netherlands. What are you to do in that situation? How can you watch Dutch TV online from outside Holland?

The answer and solution is very easy, and if you read our article about how to get a Dutch IP address you will find the information you are looking for. You simply need to create a connection to some server in Netherlands (VPN) and once connected you will get a virtual address which will make it seem like you actually stay and live in the Netherlands, even though you are currently lying on the beach in Barcelona and enjoying life! All information is encrypted, it is totally legal and very easy to install and understand.

Visit the homepage of HideMyAss, make a subscription (30 day pay back guarantee if you are not satisfied), download their VPN Pro program, and in a few minutes from now you can watch all broadcasts on the net available to people with a Dutch IP address only.

Explaining it all with a very non technical language:
What happens is that HideMyAss is a nice company. It is almost like if they give you an address in the Netherlands, so whenever someone wants to check up on you, you can tell them that you have an address in Holland, even though you are somewhere else. Ideal if you are on holiday somewhere else, or if you have moved to another nation, but would like to stay up to date on what is going on at home in Amsterdam or in the rest of the nation!

So, watch Nederlands 1, Nederlands 2, Nederlands 3 and whatever else you need to with this solution (this is of course not valid for PAY tv where you need a subscription), only for free broadcasts which are limited to people living in Netherlands.

How to get a Dutch IP address?

Many people realize when they travel abroad that they are in need of a Dutch IP address to get hold of the information, tv broadcast or some sort of other stuff they are in need of. Others realize that they need a Dutch ip address to play their favorite game online, or whatever. There might be many reasons, but the question is still the same: How to get a Dutch IP address?

It is very easy, but before we answer 100% we will simply tell you how this is done, with a simple technical language. To get a Dutch IP address (or any other IP address from other countries around the world) you need to create a VPN or connect to a Proxy server in the given nation. As this connection is created it can be described as a tunnel giving you a direct connection to the given nation. All your information is thus seen on the internet as though it would go from the server in the given nation, and all internet pages, tv stations, poker centrals and so on will look upon you as someone surfing the internet from that nation. How can you do this in practice?

How to get a Dutch IP address
Dutch IP address with HideMyAss

There are some small guides telling you how to get a Dutch IP address online for free, but these are very unstable and not always working to well. HideMyAss (link to a HideMyAss review) is a provider which takes some money for this, but then they are also professional at what they are doing and the service they provide is perfect (we have tried it ourselves). You simply visit their webpage, make a subscription, download their VPN Pro software. Once the program is downloaded you type in your user ID and password and choose the server you would like to connect to. On the list of servers you can not only find Dutch servers, but servers all around the world. So with the subscription and the program you can not only get a Dutch IP address, but you can easily get an Italian, a Spanish and lots of IP addresses from other nations around the world. It is cheap, but works great and it also encrypts your traffic making it safe to use and thus people around you can not steal the information you are sending and pick up your private data.

This solution is also ideal if you want to watch Dutch television broadcasts which are only available to people with a Dutch ip address. This is typical for live broadcasts, larger sports events, Eurovision Song contest, Olympic games, World Championship (football) and so on! Enjoy and good luck!
