NewsDemon.com Newsgroups Reaches 300 Day Binary Retention; On Road To 400

June 8th, 2009

NewsDemon.com Newsgroups is proud to announce today its efforts to increase to 400 days of binary retention is drawing closer as it hits the 300 day mark today.

We had announced earlier on how we had been moving towards to a full 400 days of binary retention back in March. While reaching this milestone, our daily increase of binary retention has reached the 300 day mark and will continue to increase by one day each day after.

The amount of days that messages and articles can be accessed on a Usenet newsgroup translates to binary retention. The longer amount of days, the longer the history of articles are available.

Text retention is not affected by this upgrade and currently remains well over three years. The increase to a full 300 days of binary retention is automatically available for both US and EU customers of NewsDemon.com Newsgroups as it continues to build to our 400 day goal.

 

Newsdemon Increases Newsgroups Retention To 400 Days!

March 20th, 2009

NewsDemon.com, a leading premium USENET provider, is proud to announce retention is being increased to an unprecedented, industry leading, 400 days. This increase in retention will be available for both United States and Europe based members.

The one year and thirty five day retention follows an earlier announcement this year of a 175 day retention increase.

The retention rate of binaries translates into the longest amount of time an article would be available on any particular Newsgroup. The increase in retention does not require any modifications from NewsDemon.com members on either their newsreaders or account settings.

The 400 day binary retention increase will not affect the same level of superior service or speed provided by NewsDemon.com premium USENET access.

Newsdemon.com is proud to be an industry leading USENET provider and is proud to be part of the global networking community it supports. NewsDemon.com USENET access has been committed to providing access to thousands of uncensored newsgroups at blazing speeds and affordable prices.

What’s the deal with Usenet Newsgroups Retention?

January 1st, 2009

Recently, NewsDemon.com’s Usenet Newsgroups had made several retention upgrades.  We had been waiting on these upgrades for some time now and we were happy to finally be able to pass the extra days along to our customers.

Now, we are getting customers who have seen that several of our competitors are following suit and increasing their retention above and beyond what we currently show.  So, we thought we would clear the air about NewsDemon.com retention.

It is NewsDemon.com’s internal policy to NOT report retention increases until we are able to actually provide and verify these days of retention on our servers.  Often, our retention numbers posted are only the amount of days available through use of article ids and exclude additional days that might be available in a group.  This mostly occurs on some of the larger groups with over a billion articles.

With that in mind, we would like our customers to know we are currently showing slightly over 200 days of retention in most of our core groups we use for measurement.  We will be updating the numbers on our website later this week.  And although we do not choose to provide an actual number of days we are building up to, we will share that we do not intend to stop growing our retention in the near future.  Building retention is a very costly and time consuming endeavor and we at NewsDemon.com hope you will understand our efforts to provide accurate information regarding our continuing upgrades on our Premium Usenet Access services.

From all of us at NewsDemon.com, we wish you a happy and prosperous 2009.

The 175 day binary retention is now available to both US and EU members. Newdemon.com had previously announced a 70% increase on binary retenion in mid-November.
