To quote the system admin ” free users have limits basically based on how much spare capability current this is at 25 nzbs day”
According to the developers, Newzb.co currently has more than 1.5 million NZB files available to users. The site, however, does clean up on a regular basis, so the number does go up and down over time and quite regularly. The retention rates at the site are currently 1,500 days.
There are 95 different groups being indexed at this site at present. The site does not include adult content and encourages members to comment about the NZB files and other topics. The developers say that there are approximately 4,000 postings on the site at present.
The site currently has approximately 6,000 users, with more than 100 of them on the VIP program. The VIP program costs $15 dollars per year or .05 Bitcoin. There is also a way to get a VIP membership by getting a BitUsenet account through the site itself.
The community is a big part of what the people at Newzb.co are trying to accomplish. Very active postings and reward for participating in the posting are both parts of using this site. With around 6,000 users, there is certainly the potential for some interesting conversations. There is also an IRC channel available.
If you want to access what the site has to offer without going to the site itself all the time, however, you can use RSS fees. The site also has an API.
Newzb.co has plenty of server power. In fact, the developers describe it as overkill, so there shouldn’t be any issue for users getting access to the site, even when it’s very busy. Altogether, the servers at this site have 24 cores and 48GB of memory to spare.
That power isn’t wasted on spam files, either. They do deep inspection to get rid of the passworded junk on the USENET and make sure that the quality is there by checking the size and the height and width of the media.
