WRZHost is a company which at first glance seems like a Warez-allowing company (but is it so?). It also confirms to some other factors we look for in offshore anonymous hosting companies. All of this led us to scribble this WRZHost review down.
Do you live in a conservative nation/country and/or wish to upload content which may not exactly be welcomed in your own region? That’s what these anonymous offshore hosting companies primarily offer a shelter for.
Even though these companies are often considered a safe-heaven for illegal content, that purely is a misconception. Rather these companies simply offer a bit more content-liberty than native hosts due to their foreign base and laws.
Note that we also did a WarezHost review couple days back, this WRZHost review is entirely different. The two companies aren’t affiliated with, or linked to one another in any way and hence offer two completely different USPs for their users.

Let’s dissect these factors in detail then.
Is WRZHost Anonymous?
Any company is considered anonymous if it lets a user register and make payments without revealing or demanding any bit of personally-identifiable information.
As for payments, those can be made anonymously Cryptocurrencies (for more details scroll down to the payments section).
Is WRZHost Offshore?
Arguably the most important aspect when searching for an anonymous offshore hosting company, is the “offshore location” isn’t it?
WRZHost offers servers from two of the most favourable offshore locations on the planet, viz. a viz:
As mentioned multiple times in our other Best Anonymous Offshore Hosting reviews, there aren’t many locations better at offering content-liberty and freedom than the options mentioned above.
What Content is and Isn’t Allowed on WRZHost? (AUP)
Even though the names contains “WRZ” in its name, it can be easily misunderstood for WAREZ, especially considering the context of the company. It does impart the idea that Warez may be allowed on the platform.
Well that isn’t true. Warez of any kind isn’t allowed on the company servers, infact it strictly bans any content related to the following:
- Any and all Illegal content.
- DDoS (flooders/botnets).
- Chat servers.
- Child Porn.
The company does allow legal adult content. However it does seem to pay attention to DMCA requests and doesn’t allow copyrighted content.
How can you Pay on WRZHost?
Payment modes add to a company’s overall anonymity. Fortunately, WRZHost does accept payment via Cryptocurrencies, namely Bitcoin.
In addition to BTC, payments can also be made via:
What are WRZHost Services, Pricing Plans and Refund Policies?

As for refunds, the company only offers those on Shared servers, no refunds available for VPS and Dedicated servers. The refund can be claimed within 7-days of purchase.
How to Contact WRZHost Support?
Lastly for this WRZHost review, let’s talk about its support. Even though it has a live-chat feature available on the site, we tested it for over 10 hours (by keeping multiple tabs open). Not once did the live-chat come online and the status remained offline.
It does however have multiple ticketing options categorized under Billing, Network status, Server Status etc. Some of these are only available for registered users. All in all, the support isn’t as impressive as we saw in our Pro Managed review for one.
Final Verdict on
If you’ve been through our other reviews, you’re probably asking where are the tests. Well, we always verify a website’s servers before performing tests.
https://www.wrzhost.com redirects its traffic via Cloudflare as a security precaution, as a result of which any of the tests we conduct wouldn’t have been accurate or trustworthy and hence have been omitted.
But we did answer all other questions which we generally do. So yes the company seems largely acceptable, and the content-liberty too is there as long as you aren’t into anything illegal.
The payment options are acceptable, but the lack of instant support sure is a disappointment. All in all, you can totally give it a try if you wish to start small, and just need offshore servers.
