January 2020 - NZB Tortuga declared dead
While NZB Tortuga was a promising and popular NZB lasting from 2016 to 2020, we are now declaring it dead.
November 2019 - Registrations are currently disabled
Nzb Tortuga launched in early November 2016 and quickly grew to be one of the top indexing sites. Indexing almost 600 groups with more than 3 million posts to date and a solid 1000 day retention it’s not surprising Nzb Tortuga is popular.

Over the last year 12 months Nzb Tortuga has had a 95% uptime (see our uptime chart below) and has consistently updated the site throughout.
