Newshosting Review 2019 - Keep This in Mind Before Buying

Newshosting is a Usenet provider that also offers VPN service as an add-on to their Usenet service plans. The VPN they provide is a full featured product that can be used to browse the web as well as newsgroups. This VPN service provides a secure connection using the OpenVPN, PPTP, or L2TP protocols with 256-bit encryption. Newshosting has over 70 servers located in more than 17 countries throughout Europe and the United States. Subscribers are allowed to switch between any of the servers whenever they want, making this VPN a good choice for bypassing geo-restricted streaming media sites as well. You get unlimited speed and data transfers with every plan, and they also support Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP), so you can keep using your video conferencing software.

Newshosting VPNs keep your browsing private by providing you with a pool of over 7000 IP addresses to ensure you get a random IP address every time you connect. They also provide you with an NAT firewall that blocks any traffic from the Internet unless you initiated the connection. This firewall will prevent any scanning attacks from entering the VPN tunnel and reaching your computer. Newshosting further protects your privacy by not keeping any activity logs on their servers. Every plan allows 2 simultaneous connections so you can keep your browsing private on your desktop and mobile device (to keep your data private at Wi-Fi hotspots).

While you can use the VPN connection to browse the internet, bear in mind that the main business of Newshosting is to provide access to Usenet newsgroups. The majority of the subscription price is for features related to this purpose and, if you are not interested in reading newsgroups, you should consider this before making a decision. Otherwise, you will be paying for access to a large number of newsgroups and archived articles.

Support is provided by an online ticketing system and is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you do not feel like waiting for a response, you can search their knowledge base for answers to common questions or problems you may encounter. Instructions are provided to show you how to setup your VPN client for Windows, Mac OS X, Ubuntu, iOS, Android using the PPTP, L2TP, or OpenVPN protocols. Routers that have DD-WRT or Tomato open source firmware installed can be setup with OpenVPN or PPTP to connect to your VPN and instructions are provided on the website for these as well.

I'm statisfied with Newshosting, but new to VPN!

I have been using Newshosting for Usenet service for many years and I am a satisfied subscriber. I'm new to VPN. Their software makes the startup process easy. I don't like the loss in download speed (25mb/100mb) even with a response time of 15ms from their VPN server. That info is from speedtest0 Security and privacy is the main reason I'm using Newshosting. I believe my government shouldn't be snooping on my legal activity! I don't have anything to hide, but my privacy is important to me and many others! With "claimed" zero logging and "claimed" 100% security. Hopefully I'm staying as invisible as I can. I haven't learned enough to know otherwise! I'm giving Newshosting 4 stars instead of 5 simply because I am new to VPN (but not for long!) and that's what this review on this site should feature. I am really satisfied with their Usenet service and if they match or exceed that with their VPN service, 5 stars will be warranted!
