Free news servers

 

FREEUSENET.NEWS is a free service.  For commercial NNTP news providers, see our links section. Please read our terms of service carefully.

A free NNTP (News Network Transfert Protocol) server is a server which can be used by clients without paying money. "Free" means free of charge and denotes only a sort of economical relation between clients and administrators.

There are several different kinds of free servers and each one has its own characteristics. Almost all these hosts protect themselves from unauthorized actions through and in most cases they adopt an authentication mechanism in order to prevent abuses. This is the case with FREEUSENET.NEWS. This implies that the clients have to register before starting to post using these hosts.

To be able to post in the newgroups, you must register.

Getting started

You need to configure your news client to use your new FREEUSENET.NEWS account. Look for the 'News server name' settings below. You will need to enter the server name, user name, and password. The server name is one taken from the list and you picked your own user name and password during the account creation process. You may also have to select an option that says "My server requires a username and password".  Save and exit the configuration panel and your news client should download a group list. It may take several minutes to download the group list as there are many newsgroups available. Once it has completed you will be able to read articles and post your own articles for others to read. If things are not going the way it should be, please check our FAQ.
