Connection Speeds / Server Locations

We haven’t tested the connection speeds of NewsFusion, but based on reviews, it’s of a standard level only.

They have datacenters both in Europe and the USA with the following addresses:

  • EU: eu.newsfusion.net (ports 119, 443)
  • USA: us.newsfusion.net (ports 119, 443)
  • SSL (EU): ssl.eu.newsfusion.net (ports 80, 81, 563)
  • SSL (USA): ssl.us.newsfusion.net (ports 80, 81, 563)

One server farm is located in the Phoenix, Arizona and other in Amsterdam in the Netherlands. Server uptime is near 100% and, as you have already noticed, the SSL (256-bit) is also available. 24 connections are shared among both server farms, but they find that their average customer can saturate the connection with less than five connections.
