Newshosting’s Rapid Binary Retention Growth

We often get copies of press releases when providers hit new milestones.  This week was no exception.  As we mentioned in a post earlier this week several leading Usenet providers just passed 1,300 days of binary retention and continue to spool daily.  So it wasn’t surprising to see a related announcement from Newshosting.  However, part of the release caught our eye.  Specifically the rapid growth of Newshosting in recent years.  Mentioning that in recent years Newshosting has grown by over 1,000 days of binary retention.  While also adding a newsreader and launching their popular $9.99 unlimited Usenet deal.

While Newshosting isn’t the only Usenet provider to see massive growth in retention they didn’t just stop there.  Newshosting’s growth in terms of popularity has been driven by a number of factors.  Not the least of which is the increased retention but just as important is their $9.99/mo. and $99/yr. specials along with the addition of their impressive Newshosting client.  As Usenet fans we always knew about Newshosting.  They’ve been a top provider for years but recently they’ve taken a huge leap forward to become arguably the best value in Usenet.

What’s next for Newshosting?  Only time will tell but we’re betting they’ll continue to add value to an already excellent service.  As we see now with retention at 1,302 days and counting.  Regardless of which criteria you use to compare Usenet providers (retention, performance, reliability, features, price) Newshosting comes up close to if not at the top of every list.  We look forward to tracking and updating you on their continued growth.

Newshosting Hits 3 Years of Binary Retention

What were you doing on August 15, 2008?  No idea?  We don’t remember either but you can find binary posts that old on Newshosting now.  As the service supports 1,095+ days of binary retention and growing.  That’s three years of binary articles.  Cheers to the Newshosting team and others celebrating the big accomplishment this month.  We look forward to continued binary retention growth along with new and innovative features like the newly released Newshosting client.  Not to mention their popular $9.99 unlimited Usenet promotion.

We cover a lot of up and coming services.  Using terms like ‘cool project’ and ‘shows a lot of potential’.  So when we write about an industry leader like Newshosting it takes a moment to switch gears.  Yet the conversation is similar in some positive ways.  As the Newshosting team dedicates a lot of effort to continuously improve the service.  For example so far this year Newshosting has increased binary retention to over three years and developed an easy to use newsreader for their members.  On top of offering the promotion shown above.  Saving new customers up to 44% off unlimited Usenet.  How’s that for progress?

Cheers to the Newshosting ops team for there efforts in supporting the world class service.  We don’t talk much about the infrastructure, massive storage and overhead costs that go into offering 3+ years of retention.  Yet the leaders like Newshosting are moving forward and continuing to grow retention.  While also adding value to the service in other ways like the newsreader with Usenet search capabilities.
