Usenet News with Individual.NET
Scope of Newsgroups
At the moment, we offer more than 25,000 newsgroups from over
220 different newsgroup hierarchies. Our portfolio of newsgroups
offered is well-kept and extended continuously. Our server does
not carry any groups with binary content.
Spam (e.g. unsolicited advertisements) is filtered out automatically
by the server (with the program "Cleanfeed"), this improves the readability
within the newsgroups and decreases time and data volume of downloads.
Privacy and Security
Our server does not publish any personal information about the user
in posting headers that the user does not publish himself. In
particular, the user's IP address is not visible to third parties.
SSL encryption (NNTPS / NNTP over SSL) is available
(optional) and covers the entire connection, not only the authentication
Highly Redundant Feeds
We exchange postings with more than 200 different peering partners all
around the globe. Thereby we achieve excellent completeness and very
high reliability of supply.
You will receive professional assistance for setup and usage of our
service through our extensive web pages (e.g. FAQs, program configuration),
and our news team is available by e-mail for your needs.
Experience and Competence
Unlike many ISPs, Usenet is no "niched" product for us. Our staff is
highly skilled and possesses longtime experience and expertise in
Usenet as well as in supporting and maintaining our service and users.
