The Site and Their Goals
According to the developer, Nzbsooti is designed to evolve into a site that offers a community similar to nzbmatrix, but they want to keep a lower profile and have a smaller number of members. There are currently no VIP members because of the newness of the site. If you want to join, you can pay $10, which gives you 200 API hits and 100 downloads per day. Members that do not pay get 30 downloads and 50API hits per day.
If you’re a member, you can make requests and take advantage of new features that they’re currently adding to the site. If you donate more than $10, you can get as many as 5000 API hits per day and 500 downloads per day. This has only recently been set up.
The download limits for non-members are obviously quite generous, but the developers encourage those who want to support the site to donate to keep it up and running. The developers also say that, if it is requested, they will consider adding more downloads to the package.
There are approximately 200 users on this site at the moment. The developers say that there are approximately 50-70 new users joining every day, however, so there is definitely some demand for this site. Their current hardware consists of a 500GB hard drive, 1.5GHZ dual-core atom processor server. They have 5TB of bandwidth. They recently moved over to this server. It’s located in France.
One of the goals of Nzbsooti will come as welcome news to users. The developers are seeking to eliminate as much spam as possible from their indexes and to have categories set up that make it easier to search for the content that users want. They want to have “just the good stuff” according to the developers, which will help them conserve resources and offer a better user experience.
This is a newznab based site. It features support for Sabnzbd and Sickbeard. There is an API available and the developers are adding support for more features as they continue to improve the site.
