Easynews Site Update : Boosts Retention to 600 Days

Easynews.com just got a fresh new look and updates that give visitors a view into the web Usenet service.  Oh yeah…they also increased NNTP retention 50% to 600 days!

The new site certainly appeals to a male audience.  The swimsuit models made us consider signing up and we’re already members.

Beyond the hot new look for the site, Easynews brought some additional features and a major retention upgrade.  For starters NNTP retention was upgraded from 400 days up to 600 days of binaries and two years of text posts.  The new retention is available immediately without an increase in price. Making their $9.95 unlimited NNTP accounts a bargain.

Easynews is also offering visitors a chance to sample the service directly from the home page.  We stuck with the default search of “swimsuit model” on the homepage and were impressed with the speed and quality of the results.

Looking closer brought us to several new pages including helpful information on Easynews features like pre-assembled multipart binaries, Easynews Zip manager, roll over gigs (a great feature of the service), Easyboost (increased speed), NNTP header compression and support for mobile users.  In the coming months Easynews promises app-free support for mobile devices including iPhone and iPad’s.
