Or use the Smart Server, which will choose the best server for you.
GOOSE VPN has four types of servers:

- Cyber Alarm servers: To use the Cyber Alarm and get notifications of potential risks

- Streaming servers: To use streaming services or stream other videos.
The Smart Server option is an option that compacts all the same type of servers (Normal, Cyber Alarm, P2P, and Streaming) for each country. Automatically the best server for your chosen location will be used. Turning or keeping this option off will however give you more control on which server you use.
