Usenet account ? your gateway to information!
You will have access to any newsgroup you desire on the newsserver, being able to download the needed information using freeware programs such as Grabit. In the meantime, let’s find out more details on Usenet accounts and what they have to offer.
Setting up your newsserver account is incredibly easy, being offered a period of retention of 180 days (that period being considerably larger when it comes to text groups), a number of 10 connections and free unlimited download. The guaranteed speed is of 12Mbit p/s, the information transmitted is protected through the SSL encryption and the package includes customer supports whenever required. This is basically what a Usenet account offers and you cannot deny that you do not feel interested.
This is not the only type of account you can setup on the newsserver. For those who only want to download from time to time but they require a high speed and high retention, the block XS Usenet account is the best choice. The block sizes vary from as little as 2GB to the impressive 100 GB, the prices offered on the payserver varying accordingly. The retention period remains the same and so do the number of connections included within your account. The speed is unlimited, with the specification that the download limit depends entirely on the block size that you’ve chosen in the first place. Secure SSL encryption is guaranteed as well, just as the customer service. You will have to spend some time analyzing what each account has to offer and decide which one you like best.
In order to download information from any of the newsgroepen (newsgroups), you need to setup your Usenet account. Once that step has been completed, you will need a newsreader program, one that you will use in order to actually download the information from a newsgroup. Grabit is a professional newsreader, one that can be downloaded for free. You will have to install the program and configure the info based on your Usenet account, proceeding from there. The newsreader functions wonderfully, allowing you to download any information you desire from any newsgroep.
If you are curious to discover the speed with which you are downloading, then you can check your payserver account and see the limit specified there (of course, your Internet connection will affect that speed as well). Once again, you should not question the security of the downloaded information, as the SSL encryption guarantees a safe download without any question. If you are not satisfied with Grabit, then you should know that there are other newsreader programs available, such as NewsLeecher. You can try it for a period and decide whether you like it more than the other program. Setup the program and it will start the download from the newsgroups automatically.
