Newshosting Review

Newshosting is the flagship Usenet for the Highwinds group.

Over the last 5 years Highwinds has bought up a lot of the smaller Usenet providers and tied them into their massive newsgroup server system.  They also have developed (or perhaps bought, we’re not sure) a very nice newsreader program and they include it free in all their usenet plans.  It’s a pretty good value in that it is comparable in function to something like Newzbin Pro, but since it comes free with the Newshosting service, you save the cost of buying the software.

Special Note: From Black Friday to Cyber Monday, Newshosting and Usenetserver are throwing in free VPN service on new sign-ups, with the VPN service remaining included for the life of the Usenet account.

Our favorite Newshosting package is their Newshosting XL Powerpack bundle:

  • The same raw Unlimited NNTP usenet service included in their product
  • A free Usenet Newsreader program (and it’s a pretty good one too!)
  • PLUS a free basic account on their website – Thumbnail based Usenet browsing and download website! You can even use the Easynews visual search and preview to create NZB files to download with your newsreader program!

If maximum Usenet Newsgroup effectiveness is your goal, this is the bundle you should get.
