Select download type
Launch the "newshosting_setup_2.8.10.exe" and continue through the prompts to install Newshosting Newsreader
After installation, start Newshosting Newsgroup Reader. To start using it, input your Username and password from your registration email. You only need to do this once.
You will now see the home dashboard - Clean, Fresh and Intuitive (pre-configured Newsgroups)
Newshosting Newsreader comes completely pre-configured. But it also offers a lot of features and settings for advanced users (Backup NNTp - Number of connections - SSL port to use - Limit connection speed - Download folder - NZB Watch - Hide password protected file groups)
The method is traditional downloading: subscribing to groups, downloading headers and then downloading files. You should try going back to the beginning - before NZB – to the time when searching for content, updating Newsgroups, recognizing a file by its ID (tt), downloading initial files in order to sound out the rest was all a necessary and interesting activity.
Advantages: Discover rare files – and many more files compared to an NZB search engine
Disadvantages: Slower method ( download initial files, read the NFO…) – You can't find obfuscated file names (e.g. Mixed NewsGroups), it is a serious problem because many files posted to Usenet nowadays have obfuscated file names.
NewsHosting is the best Usenet provider for this kind of detective work. When you open the Newshosting newsreader client it shows you the pre-configured Newsgroups, as well as the current activity and latest news
If you click through the newsgroups, you will recognize, that Newshosting has pre-indexed all the Newsgroups for you! So no more wasting time with header downloads.
Here you can search for a particular newsgroup. Once found, right-click to add it to the Bookmark menu on the left panel.
Once you have newsgroups saved in your bookmarks you can begin browsing them. To view the most recent posts in a bookmarked newsgroup, simply click on the newsgroup's name and the main panel will refresh with the content and posts for that group. In the main panel, you can scroll and page through the posts. While browsing a binary group you can sort them into the types of files they contain: videos, audio, documents, ISO, software and images or you can simply choose to view them all (the default view)
You can download the files through the browser by clicking “Download” or “Create NZB file” (At the bottom of the context menu, there will be an option to “Create NZB file” ). The NZB file you just created and downloaded can be used in any newsreader
This allows you to:
Miss nothing. As soon as a file you have been waiting for gets posted, it is downloaded.
Organise your searches. You list the files you want and the Newsreader will download them for you when they appear.
Stop searching manually in file indexes to check if someone might have posted.
Newshosting Auto Search allows you to create customized searches that run automatically each hour and at the time of application open and start. Using Newshosting Auto Search, you will be able to download new results much faster as new file groups get posted.
You just need to set it up:
A window will open to tell you the search results and eventual download.
Search button which allows you to search usenet like a NZB search engine - The Newshosting search functionality will help you quickly search and download specific content.
Once you find something that you want (Results can be filtered by file type - video, audio, documents, ISO images, software and images), you can download and it will automatically be stored in a folder
