6Box.Me is a free USENET indexer with a three-site design. This allows you to try out different versions of Newznab to see which you like the best.
There are no membership fees required to use these sites. Signing up is as easy as filling out a short form and, once you do, you get complete access to the API and the site search features. If you need a backup indexer, this is an ideal solution.
6Box.Me is free. If you click on the donate link on some of their sites, you’ll be directed to charities, but the sites themselves don’t cost money
The site operator says that the site is good for a backup and that there is unexpected downtime now and then. For a free service, however, this is easily tolerable and still makes it worth signing up.
This site, as of the last time information was posted, runs on 4 SSDs, 65GB of RAM and 20GB ramdisk. It has a 1000mbit connection and runs off of two dedicated USENET accounts.
There are no limits on downloads, so feel free to scour the indexes and enjoy the service.
There are three indexers associated with the site:
The variations are pictured below. They each run their own version of Newznab. One of the real perks of this site is that you can check out each version and see which one you like using the most.
The API key for each site is given under your user profile.
As of the time of writing, a universal login was not supported between the three different sites. You’ll have to create a separate profile at each site, but the process is quick and painless.
6Box.Me is a free USENET indexer, and that’s a big advantage. You can download as much as you want and there aren’t any membership fees involved.
There are actually three different sites to choose from, each of which uses a different version of Newznab. You’ll have to create separate logins for each site, but its’ worth it, given the amount of NZBs you can download from 6Box.Me.
