NewsDemon Now Offers geo-DNS For Faster Connections

By Newsgroup Usenet October 28th, 2013

NewsDemon members now receive the fastest speeds available to them through our new geo-DNS automation.

With server farms located throughout both the US and EU, the new geo-DNS locates the closest server to their location, offering them the fastest speeds available to connect, access and share on USENET newsgroups.

The service, which is available for both SSL and non-SSL users, is automated. Members simply need to input any of the four NewsDemon server addresses that is part of their region to their newsreader (or the free version of News Rover that is available to all members):

General Servers:

US Servers:

German Specific Servers:

European Servers:

Once the server address is inserted, the automated service will pinpoint and connect to the closest Newsgroups server farm available.

This service and upgrade is free to all existing and new members and no further configuration is necessary. The username and password provided at signup is necessary to connect and access any of these server farms. The service is available to both monthly and block plan users.

The geo-DNS automation should allow members a worry free solution to get the most out of their USENET newsgroup experience. Any Newsgroup member with any questions on how to configure or use this service can contact our 24/7 customer support team for more information.

NSA-Proof VPN Connections Available Through NewsDemon

By Newsgroup Usenet June 14th, 2013

In a world where privacy is fast becoming an illusion, pay attention to Benjamin Franklin’s famous warning that “three may keep a secret, if two of them are dead.”

Last week, leaks revealed that the Web sites most people use every day are sharing users’ private information with the government. Companies participating in the National Security Agency’s program, code-named PRISM, include Google, Facebook, Apple and Microsoft.

It wasn’t supposed to be this way. During the 1990s, a “cypherpunk” movement predicted that ubiquitous, user-friendly cryptographic software would make it impossible for governments to spy on ordinary users’ private communications.

Consumers have overwhelmingly chosen convenience and usability. Mainstream communications tools are more user-friendly than their cryptographically secure competitors and have features that would be difficult to implement in an NSA-proof fashion.

However, nowadays, its easier today to encrypt your internet connection and secure your identity than ever before. Newsgroups currently offers SlickVPN service which works with a variety of protocols and devices that allows users to encrypt their internet connection and use an IP address from countries and citiers around the world. This allows the user to circumvent any prying eyes that may be trying to listen in.

The SlickVPN service anonymizes your geographic location and passes all your information through an encrypted tunnel.

There is no reason to believe that the NSA, or anyone else, can crack strong encryption VPN services that have been studied and vetted. If you want to protect your identity online, its more important than ever to use a VPN service to secure your identity. Newsgroup members can include VPN as part of their membership in their admin control panel. For non-members, SlickVPN pricing is available on their website. Or get USENET and VPN access both for one low price from Newsdemon

NewsDemon Now Offers Cosmos IP Addresses With SlickVPN

By Newsgroup Usenet April 1st, 2013

In a constant effort to improve the services of Newsgroups, we are proud to announce that we are now offering customers who use our VPN service provided by SlickVPN additional servers that span a great portion of the Universe. Newsgroups has been offering its customers VPN service through SlickVPN for some time now. With the added SlickVPN service, customers have been receiving premium VPN service that enables them to surf online securely wherever they go and browse otherwise filtered content by using one of our dedicated IP addresses with over 50 locations worldwide to choose from. With this added service, users are able to surf anonymously by having the ability to change their IP address to almost any continent in the world. At Newsgroups, we understand that may be limiting to some customers. Therefore, we are now offering  IP addresses that span the cosmos.

With the new additional VPN servers, customers can now change their IP address to other planets including those in Mars, Jupiter, Saturn or even the now-not-considered-a-planet, Pluto. Additionally, SlickVPN will also be expanding its selection of VPN servers to include those outside of the solar system and galaxy. Exclusive to Newsgroup customers, customers can now select servers located in the Dagobah system, the Borg Prime in the Delta Quadrant and even the recently liberated planet of Requiem. Newsgroups has been working diligently with its SlickVPN partner to provide these added benefits due to the popular demand from our earth-based and alien customers. With the inclusion of these newly created servers, Newsgroups hopes to expand further into the great beyond, where no man has gone before, to offer further locations to use the VPN service.

Stay tuned for other benefits stemming from these locations as Newsgroups is preparing to offer additional USENET servers from these exotic planets and galaxies in the foreseeable future.
