Newshosting is a Usenet provider founded and based in the US. It has been our favorite since 2012, still rocking today.

It’s the cheapest provider with the best value you can find. Recently they included a free VPN service so the value keeps increasing.

Packages & Price

It’s an unlimited Usenet service for just $8.33 / month (yearly) which promises you the following:

  • Free 14 day trial
  • Free VPN service included
  • Retention binary data 3000+ days – grows daily!
  • Text storage is more than 2 years
  • 100,000 + uncensored newsgroups
  • 256 Bit SSL Encryption
  • Speed / download quota is unlimited
  • 30 connections
  • 24/7 Customer Support
  • Newshosting Usenet browser included! (watch it in action below)

Speed & Retention

From our experience, just 7 connections were enough to constantly max out the 300 Mbit/s cable connection. No problems with incomplete data and able to download high retention files above 2900 days.

The beauty is that you can experience all this yourself and test Newshosting without spending a penny.


  • Address:
  • Connections: 30
  • Ports: 119, 23, 25, 80, 3128
  • SSL ports: 443, 563

You can use these settings in your favorite Usenet client / newsreader.

Conclusion & Trial

Users that are looking for the best possible Usenet experience, should take a good look at Newshosting. The value they offer with the included VPN service, Usenet browser and unlimited speed is unmatched.

Newshosting offers a 14 days free trial with a download limit of 30GB. A credit card or Paypal is required to register, however there is no charge if you cancel before 14 days or 30GB of downloaded data. Everything is quick and easy to arrange as shown in the screenshot below. No questions asked if you decide to cancel.

Are you satisfied with the trial and want the lowest price with unlimited download speed and data?

If you took the Usenet trial, cancel it in time and get the unlimited account at 44% off.

This is an exclusive offer and not available through the free Usenet trial.

In case you are from the Netherlands, Eweka is a solid provider.


  1. From most places I’ve read Newshosting is one of the top places to get but your recommendation for Astraweb is a big turn off on the credibility of the article and site. I have astraweb now and while they use to be the best and the one every one went too, I’m more often then not failing to download things A LOT.

    They’ve gone way down hill; anyone will tell you and they should be far from recommended ever.
