i am running deluge behind a vpn (Expressvpn) with port forwarding enabled through Express. PIA was good though but lacks in speed. Nordvpn, hidemyass also supports deluge.

I use PIA, which i'm guessing is the most popular probably because of the price. All VPNs work with deluge as it's not program-dependent. On linux it's easy to setup VPN usage only for torrenting if wanted. The difference in VPNs is about speed, stability, price and selecting a provider you trust to not keep logs to identify you later on for 3'rd parties to obtain. Some are better with port-forwarding than others, but I don't use it and get great speed regardless(remember uploading still is supported without port-forwarding). I like PIA because they also have a SOCKS5 proxy included in the subscription, which I normally prefer, as slightly better speeds and less CPU for added encryption overhead, but mostly I chose PIA because of price and SOCKS5 proxy and I trust them additionally.

I use PIA too, it works good and without restriction. And speed is great!

I use PIA too but you have to remember to go to advanced settings and enable the VPN kill switch and the dns mask. Thomas Falater

Another vote for NordVPN. Speeds are good, supports torrenting, doesn't support port forwarding though, but has a huge server list and no log policy. It is more than enough for my needs.

Yeah, I am dumbfounded by people who use torrents but don't use a VPN. Well, maybe they are lucky because their country's ISP's don't control that but I think in the future all of them will be doing it. I personally use NordVPN, but you could check the article here for a detailed list of VPNs https://torrentfreak.com/vpn-services-k ... mous-2018/
