News-Service.com Resellers?

Postby csn21 » Mon Oct 20, 2008 3:31 pm

Hi Guys,

Anyone know some resellers for this news server? As of lately they are getting bigger and bigger, they are even number 2 on http://top1000.org now

I want to try out their service.. but as they do not sell directly to people, I need a reseller. Anyone know any?

http://www.eurofeeds.com/ is one
I could have named a couple of others, but my mind is at a loss right now....I *believe* the Usenet provider not many folks like is a reseller as well..You know, the one that advertises on torrent sites and such. Here again I can not htink of the name..Doh! :tinfoilhat:

Ahh yes, thats it, thank you. As I said, I believe they also use news-feeds but I could be wrong. Finding there server addresses proves almost impossible on there website and tech support seems less than forthcoming with them, but I believe I subscribed to them last year to see how things were and all things pointed to Newsfeeds. One interesting thing to note though....news.usenext.com dumps you into Giganews territory...hmmmmm...

Usenetvault has recently become a reseller of News-Service.

UseNetVault.Com wrote:We have added servers leased from news-service.com these servers are available to users of the unlimited monthly account and free trials. Use your same login/password. Over 140 days retention... So now you have access to the UNS servers and News-Service.com all for one low price. FYI Tester are
reporting better completion and speeds than GN

Giganews-owned "resellers" such as Power Usenet also resolve to Giganews addresses, of course. Usenext once boasted Giganews full retention, but it's more likely now that they get the reduced reseller-grade retention. Since Usenext resells several different backends, and has listed retention as 160 days, that would suggest News-service, since they were the only one (until Astraweb got there recently) that listed 160 day retention. As it's a service designed for novices, I don't think that Usenext even lets users specify the server, and a common complaint is that the retention users report is often much less than Usenext's listed retention. I've never tried the service myself, one reason being that I knew the Usenext software client (apparently required) reportedly did not uninstall properly and left a lot of trash, even after they added an uninstaller.
