    Regarding this:

    I bought 2 Year Subscription account from NordVPN
    They have discount (79 USD for 2 years)
    I am planning next month to buy from them dedicated IP address too.

    So my questions are:

    Should I use VPN connection for all internet (surfing, gmail...) or just when connecting to server (ssh and web)?

    Except slower connection (nearest vpn servers are Croatia surrounding countries - Italy, Austria...) any other downside?

    Regarding CSF firewall, should I then put my dedicated IP to whitelist?
    Only run this, nothing more?
    csf -a xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

    Should I put my dedicated IP address in pijanitvor.com.ssl.conf file too?
