Platform Nginx + xslt

BiNZB is a new NZB service that has some very interesting features built into it. It’s a unique development and isn’t related to Newznab or any of the other systems that NZB downloaders will be familiar with. The new system has some very impressive features that should make it a fast, easy and reliable way to get NZB files for the content that you want.

The Basics

This system is designed to connect through paid NNTP access. It scans all binary newsgroups and, at present, it’s up to 1,995 different newsgroups, so there is plenty of content to choose from.

BiNZB uses a system that employs server catching and that is hosted on the Cloudfare service, which offers dynamic server management. This allows users to get an IP that’s identical to their country of origin. If you’re in the US, for instance, you’ll get a US IP.

The system also uses RIAK, which allows the service to split the NZB files into nodes. This boils down to the service having unlimited capacity to store NZB files. This is a vast improvement over what’s offered by a standard DB system.

Nginx + xslt provides the search service for the NZB files. There’s an additional feature that frequent NZB downloaders will really appreciate.

Getting Rid of Spam

There are currently around 11 million NZB files indexed by BiNZB. These files are scanned to determine if they’re spam—password checks, etc.—and those that are determined to be spam are flagged. This is great, since it allows the user to make an informed decision as to whether or not they want to download the NZB. If it’s password protected or has a virus that shows up in the check, the user will know ahead of time, potentially avoiding a disaster or, at least, a major annoyance.

More than NZBs

BiNZB has a blog where people can get good information about USENET, something the developers decided to offer as they felt there was just too little information out there about USENET in general.

Very Smart, Very Well Designed

BiNZB has some real innovation on tap for users. They’ve taken things a step further in terms of making a useable, trustworthy and reliable service. The fact that they considered the importance of information about USENET and went so far as to create a place where people can read information about it is great. These developers have created something very interesting and, on top of it, seem to really want to promote USENET in general, and those are both very good things. You can check out their blog and learn more.

Give Something New a Chance

There are plenty of NZB sites out there to choose from and, unfortunately, they tend to come and go rather quickly. BiNZB is something different and bears taking a look at. The new development that powers it is well thought out and the developers themselves really seem committed to promoting USENET. If you want to learn more, there is plenty of information at their site and there are also plenty of good reasons to give this new service a shot.

    Finally a site with good design. All usenet sites have bad design: look on binsearch, nzbindex or some others. Is it so dofficult to make cool layout? Binzb you are my favourite now!

    I use binzb already for a while, but only today discovered a new thing: look on page you will see a preview of the file on the left side. The link runs to usenethub where you can get a preview. Also image sets have all previews. Though usenethub is a service that you have to pay if you wish to download it allows free previews, so you can get information before you download a nzb file. It’s really cool feature in my eyes. Usenetreviewz seems that you also never heard about it cause it’s not mentioned in your text 🙂

    For me it’s nothing new, it’s the same site as Binsearch with the same NZB files. I agree that the site looks great and works very fast, has most groups in index and much files but I like the structure of Newznab sites cause there you can get full details about the movie or music. On Binzb information is very limited.

    Hello on all, we would like to underline that BiNZB and UsenetHub are not the same projects. Both services were done by separate developers. We from BiNZB just throught that it would be useful to get some previews for Nzb files, so used API keys of UsenetHub for NZB check and we have the same NZBs we create a preview snippet.

    Cool site. As long as they free let them do. I hate Newznab sites that uses not own technology, all offer the same and limit Api request to get people pay. On the other side what brings an index of 11,000,000 nzbs as on binzb if the majority are fakes!?

    The guys did a good job! I like the site. I would always advice sites like binzb to others not because they are something new but because there are guys who spend time in creating such sites and not like the majority of newznab site owners who just install foreign script, close the site and ask for money.
