SSL encryption on all of its connections
easy-to-use Usenet browser
high completion rates
These are all comments made directly by our fans and we want to thank you for choosing Newshosting! If you’re new to Usenet or have yet to try our service, try it now for only $9.99 for 1 month unlimited.

UsenetReviewz was created to help the Usenet enthusiast navigate through all of the Usenet providers in the market and to pick the one that best meets their needs. With over 100 Usenet providers to choose from, UsenetReviewz has narrowed down the list by eliminating those that do not meet their criteria for providing a quality service.
Recently UsenetReviewz published their picks for “Top 8 Best Usenet Providers 2014″ and Newshosting was chosen as having the “top monthly deal.” They also consider their “Top 8″ list to include only the premium Usenet providers with Newshosting as one of them.
Newshosting was selected because of its best-in-class security and access speeds to over 100,000 newsgroups. UsenetReviewz states, “If you are looking for speed, security, completion and retention, then Newshosting should be on your short list.”

Guest author Randall Wood recently posted on the Newsgroup Reviews Blog about frustrated Slashdotters going back to Usenet. Slashdot has been around since the late 1990′s and developed a community following of nerds, techies and privacy aficionados.
But last year Dice.com bought Slashdot and changed the look and the feel of the website making its users unhappy. So where did they go when they wanted to continue their discussions? Usenet! The newsgroup comp.misc is where a lot of ex-slashdotters ended up and you can join the conversation there!
Usenet is here to stay, and it’s just as useful as it was when it first started like Randall states in his post, Usenet has always been there, of course. And its strengths – distribution of the network, open access through your choice of NSP, absolutely no censorship, and total, absolute ownership by the community instead of by a corporation – remain as useful and essential in 2014 as they were in 1994 and earlier!
