Copy of Newshosting press release


ASHBURN, Va., Dec. 20 / -- Newshosting, the recognized leader in Usenet newsgroup access, today revealed that the Newshosting Usenet Browser is officially out of beta. After months of rigorous testing, Newshosting is elated to officially launch its proprietary Usenet browser. It is available immediately in the Newshosting Control Panel, for all Newshosting customers, at no additional charge. Versions are available for Windows, Mac and Linux.

The Newshosting Usenet Client allows users to search, browse and preview Usenet content with unprecedented ease. Many Usenet clients require a complicated configuration process. With the Newshosting Usenet Client, there is nothing to configure, just a basic login.

Searching Usenet is finally simplified. Keyword searches with instant results over the entire depth of Newshosting's 1200+ day retention allow you to access thousands of files you may have missed with other Usenet clients. Plus, popular search engines can be used to search alongside Newshosting's index.

Organizing search results has never been easier with filters to sort by file-type. Video and image thumbnails allow you to preview files before downloading and "SafeSearch" makes your browsing experience more pleasant by filtering out known adult oriented newsgroups. A new download scheduler can help you manage when your downloads occur and how to distribute your bandwidth.

The client includes several more features such as: Auto-Repair, Auto-Import, Auto-Unpack and Automatic Updates. Auto-Repair checks and repairs all downloads before they complete, which means no more broken downloads. Auto-Unpack will unpack, or unzip, files to your downloads folder automatically. Auto-Import monitors a folder for NZB files, imports them to the browser, and then downloads the requested binary.

In just two years, Newshosting has seen retention rates increase 480%, from 250 days to 1200+ days and growing. Technical and infrastructure enhancements, including recent storage and network upgrades to its North American and European NNTP server farms, have allowed Newshosting to support and spool up to a full 1200+ days binary retention and offer over 2 years text retention with 99%+ article completion and lightning-fast, secure first class Usenet access.
