Easynews Update : 1,050 Days of Binary Retention

The Easynews team has been very busy lately and the results are showing.  Starting with NNTP retention which recently increased to 1,050 days from the previous 1,000 day mark.  That’s almost 3 years of binaries!  In addition to new web interface features and mobile Usenet apps for iPhone / iPad /  Android devices.  For NNTP users Easynews launched a $9.95 unlimited NNTP account.  Then a couple weeks ago Easynews announced a special 100 GB / 14 day free trial.  A perfect chance for Usenet fans to test the new web interface this summer.

With the latest retention upgrade Easynews is right up there with other leading Usenet providers including UseNetServer and Newshosting.  Which also support 1,050 days of binaries and continue to grow daily.  The difference is that Easynews offers something the other big providers can’t match – web Usenet access.  Allowing members to use their favorite web browser to search Usenet, preview, stream and download content.  All without the need for a newsreader.  While newsgroup veterans also have access to 1,050 days of binary retention through their favorite Usenet client.  The best of both worlds.

Interested in Easynews?  Sign up for the 100 GB free trial and test drive both the web interface and NNTP servers.  We wrote a quick Easynews tutorial recently if you’d like some advice getting started.  Easynews also offers incredible support so definitely take advantage.  If you have an iPhone / iPad also check out EZ Global Search for mobile Easynews access.  Android users can check out the EZ Usenet and EasyBrowser apps.


Here is the official press release from Easynews:

Easynews Reaches 1050 Days of NNTP Retention

PHOENIX, AZ., July 1 — EASYNEWS.COM, the world’s leading browser-based Usenet newsgroup provider, has reached 1050 days of NNTP retention. Previously 1,000 days retention, the additional 50 days comes at no further cost to new and existing subscribers and ensures that Easynews remains competitive in the NNTP market.

NNTP is a transfer protocol (similar to HTTP or FTP) that specifically handles network news, or Usenet content. NNTP retention is the length of time that a binary or text file is available to subscribers. 1050 days of NNTP retention means that Easynews customers can access binary files that were posted to Usenet newsgroups up to 1050 days ago.

Easynews’ website offers free Usenet account signup and the original web-based newsgroup management tool. Free trial accounts for our Classic, Plus, and Big Gig plans include up to 100 GB of access to our web-based service, 256 bit encrypted SSL, uncapped speed and unlimited connections. If you decide that you like the service, simply stay on beyond 14 days or 100 gigs of downloads (whichever comes first), and you will then begin the plan that you registered for with the free trial.

Additional enhancements will continue to be introduced throughout 2011 to further expand the overall Easynews offering. Subscribers can look forward to developments such as app-free support for mobile devices as well as usability enhancements to the Easynews browser application.
