AbbeyGirl is a new NZB indexing site (as of Jan 2014) that offers a paid and free membership and that, according to developers, wants to provide users and searchers with a full index of the newsgroups that they follow.
The site is being run by people with three decades of experience in administration, offering the promise of good development, stability and service. Right now, the site is still very small. There are less than 500 users on AbbyGirl. With a free program available to try out the service, it might be worth it for anyone looking for a good NZB indexer to take a look at this site.

There service is excellent for those who use applications such as:
What It Offers
Free users can pop on the site and download two NZB files per day. To upgrade membership to VIP status, the cost is either $5 AUD per year or $15 AUD for life. The VIP users get a few features that free users cannot access. With the VIP membership, unlimited NZB downloads are permitted. The VIP users are also able to listen to music before they decide to download it and are able to access the Spotweb site associated with AbbyGirl.
For free users, the console games available on AbbyGirl aren’t accessible. Free users can access the normal sections of the site, but they cannot access the adult section of the site and have the aforementioned two NZB limitation on their download activity.
Those who want to sign up for the site can do so over the Paymate payment processing service.
AbbyGirl doesn’t actually host any NZB files itself. The site only indexes the NZB files and allows the user to read the newsgroups in which they are indexed. They have no files of their own.
The site currently indexes 29 different newsgroups but, if you do have a newsgroup that you’d like to see indexed, AbbyGirl says it is amicable to user requests. An API is available through the site. The site is running on an IBM X Series 345 dual Xeon 2.8 GHz CPU server with 4 GB of RAM and 750 GB of storage.
AbbyGirl also supports RSS feeds. As for the favorite software at AbbyGirl, SABnzbd gets high marks from the developers.
AbbyGirl may be small, but it has all of the basics that good NZB indexers have and is definitely worth investigating, particularly with a low-cost VIP membership with unlimited downloads to offer.
