Newshosting is a name that many people know in the Usenet service industry. Newshosting has been around for quite some time and has consistently offered premium usenet service for affordable prices. Newshosting has also recently teamed up with the folks over at Easynews, which not only increases the features they are able to offer their customers, but it also indicates their solid reputation among the top tier providers.
Plans from Newshosting are very competitive when compared to other top tier providers. The pricing for their unlimited plans is on par with most of the major competitors. It isn’t the least expensive, but nor is it the most expensive. This means Newshosting is right in that sweet spot of service providers. Since Newshosting also offers the same industry standard features you have come to expect from the big boys, they really aren’t lacking in the feature department. This includes free 256bit SSL encryption on all accounts, uncensored newsgroups, and high speed access. Newshosting is also one of select providers that offer free trials, which is great for those who want to try the service before they buy.
Newshosting server systems are located in the US and Europe, which means that North American and European customers should both receive a high speed connection. Combined with the 60 simultaneous connections, you shouldn’t have a problem getting maximum download speeds from their service. Their number of simultaneous connections allowed is actually one of the highest in the industry. That’s no small feat when you consider the other big players at the top of the usenet service market.
One thing to note about the top tier plan from Newshosting is that it is now linked with Easynews. This is significant because it means that customers who subscribe to the Newshosting top tier plan will be able to login to Easynews and download using the simple web interface. This means you are essentially getting a free newreader and a free usenet search engine – all rolled into one nice neat package. During signup customers that select the top tier plan are given both Newshosting AND Easynews user/password information. Be careful though, the Easynews account comes with a 10GB limit per month. However, when you consider that you still have unlimited downloading with Newshosting, the 10GB limit isn’t a big deal. Plus it makes for a quick usenet download while on the road, or using a shared computer. All you have to do is login to the Easynews website, search, and start the download! This is a great benefit for those customers who want regular “NNTP” access for their newsreader software, but also enjoy the ease of downloading using a website.
