Newshosting Fresh New Site Design : Unlimited Special

Newshosting recently launched a new site design along with a $12.95 unlimited Usenet special.  Let’s take a look at the latest edition of

The site is appealing.  First highlighting the Newshosting 14 day free Usenet trial and $12.95 a month for a year unlimited special.  In addition the homepage points out the advantages of the Newshosting service in an easy to read manner along with some nice eye candy.

It appears that high retention, 256-bit SSL encryption and unlimited speed are now included with all Newshosting Usenet plans.  For our money we would choose the Unlimited account as 30 connections is plenty.   Unlimited speed means Newhosting doesn’t cap download speeds.  For those new to Usenet the site also offers helpful features including step-by-step videos to help learn more about newsgroups, configure a newsreader, search, download and post to Usenet.

Newshosting Earns a 2010 NGR Editors Choice Award

Congratulations to Newshosting who recently received a 2010 NGR Editors Choice Award.  These awards are given in recognition of the best Usenet providers based on factors including service level, performance, and value.  The providers bearing this title are thoroughly tested and evaluated by the NGR editors.
Newshosting has been offering premium Usenet services for quite some time but recently they have taken several leaps forward.  Starting with a major retention upgrade.  Followed by a new, easy to use site design for and series of video tutorials.  Then came the holiday discounts and ongoing special offers.  All of which made for an easy decision to name Newshosting a 2010 NGR Editors’ Choice Award winner.  Newshosting joins Giganews, Binverse, Astraweb and Newsdemon as this year’s Editors Choice selections.

Let’s take a closer look at some of the features and offers that lead Newshosting to our short list of the best Usenet services:

500+ Days of Binary Retention
– Newshosting underwent a major retention upgrade is 2009 and the results are telling.  They are now at nearly 500 days of binary retention and continuing to grow daily.

New Website Launch + Usenet Video Tutorials

– In November they launched a new website design.  Not just a flashy new site design. Newshosting also added a series of Usenet video tutorials helping users setup newsreader clients, search, download and post to newsgroups.

Newshosting Free Trial
– Along with the new site design came a 14 day, 10 GB free Usenet trial for all new customers.  A great opportunity to try the premium service free of charge.

NGR Exclusive 25% Discount
– A couple months ago we posted an exclusive 25% Newshosting discount.  The special continues to be active and we look forward to bringing NGR visitors future offers.

Newshosting Unlimited Access – $7.90/mo.
– From a pricing perspective the biggest change Newshosting has made to date is their current special – 24 months of unlimited Usenet access for $7.90 a month. That’s over 60% off the normal $19.99/mo. retail price.

Newshosting didn’t stop there either.  They increased connections to 60 last year.  Making it insanely fast for those with enough bandwidth to use all 60 connections.  They also give customers extra privacy and security through free SSL encryption.

Newshosting has put a lot of effort into continued improvements and the results show positively in both service level and pricing.  We look forward to future Newshoting updates and offerings.  It should be a fun 2010!
