ASHBURN, Va., Nov. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- UsenetServer, the top-tier provider of Usenet newsgroup access, has reached a record-breaking 3,000 days of binary retention. UsenetServer, spooling since August 2008, is the first Usenet brand to achieve this retention milestone, and has no intention to stop.
This milestone further solidifies UsenetServer as the definitive leader of Usenet, a fundamental part of the internet that predates the World Wide Web. The first Usenet servers went online in 1980. Usenet utilizes the NNTP protocol. NNTP is a founding protocol of the internet. This protocol is used to transport Usenet communications, and functions separately from SMTP, FTP, and HTTP protocols. Initially popularized by universities, Usenet has since evolved into a thriving community containing more than 100,00 different newsgroups, with a global base of customers in over 180 different countries.
As modern life and the internet in particular move at a breakneck pace, the only constant seems to be change. The fact that Usenet continues to flourish is a testament to flexibility of the NNTP protocol. In acknowledgement of Usenet's staying power and our achievement of 3,000 days retention, UsenetServer is giving away several free accounts. These accounts will remain free for 3,000 days and include unlimited speed and usage in celebration of this tremendous feat.
