DogNZB Closed to New Registrations
If you are waiting to see whether or not you wanted to go with DogNZB, your window of opportunity has passed. DogNZB has closed itself to new registrations, so users who want access to NZB files will have to look elsewhere. Fortunately, there are other options out there that provide great NZB indexing and that allow you to see what’s available on the USENET very quickly after it is uploaded.
NZB.su has gotten good reviews from people on the Internet who have been using it as an indexer. One of the strengths of this particular NZB indexing site is the fact that it seems to pick up uploads that don’t originate from IRC users rather quickly. This gives it something of an advantage compared to those NZB sites that are almost completely dependent upon IRC channels for their indexes.
DogNZB also got high marks in this regard, but users who want to take advantage of that same convenience will now have to get their NZBs somewhere else, of course.
NZBMatrix is another popular site for getting NZB files. This particular service allows you access to a search function and allows you to increase the level of intelligence you have about any particular NZB by taking a look at user comments, which may reveal issues with particular files.
This service currently boasts over 1,200 days of retention for binaries and gives access to in excess of 300,000 NZB files. It has powerful search features, which make it popular with users who want to save time and don’t want to go through potentially thousands of USENET posts simply to find the exact files that they’re looking for.
NZB indexing sites generally allow you to utilize a free account, which will oftentimes be very limited, or to get a premium account. The premium accounts for NZBMatrix cost $10 per month. NZB.su allows you to get10 free downloads per day and, if you want to get a regular account, you can choose from a $5 account that allows 50 NZB downloads. A $10 donation will allow you to download more than 250 NZB’s each day.
DogNZB, located at DogNZB.cr, lists right on the homepage that it is a private site and that registrations are closed. Should the service open up to new registrations again in the future, some of the reviews of the service on the Internet indicate that it is a compelling choice. Until then, however, users will have to look elsewhere.
