NZBIndex is a custom-based indexer. While it differs from the usual newznab interface for searching, we find NZBIndex is a decent option for users that do not download frequently from Usenet.

NZBIndex’s server is located in the Netherlands. The website supports both Dutch and English users. It is accessible both by and

Ease of Use

As easy as searching on Google, NZBIndex’s search engine is easy to navigate. Just type in the word on the search bar and click the search (magnifying glass) button. You can customize your search settings to come up with the desired results. You can also save your search settings so you don’t have to re-apply them every time you visit.

You can download single or multiple files. Just simply mark the file/s you want and press the ‘Download Selected’ button at the top of the search result. You can also see the individual files in a collection by clicking the ‘View Collection’ button below the name result.

If you have other Usenet activity and downloading concerns, you can check out their FAQ page which should be helpful enough if you have basic inquiries and questions.

It is no question that NZBIndex is a favorite NZB site by many users. It is a free and easy-to-use NZB search site. We like that NZBIndex lets you participate and report any malicious and unwanted content found in their search results, and has advanced settings that generate desirable results; but with the lack of proper integrations with the other applications, advanced Usenet users won’t be satisfied with its no automation feature. Overall, we think NZBIndex is a good option for normal downloading.
