cheap usenet server?

Post by gildororo.. » Thu, 09 Jun 2011 16:57:44



Hello. My old usenet server stopped working. I am looking for a news
server that allows me about 10MB/month traffic, 1USD per month, but
the cheapest I can find is 5GB/month bandwidth at 5USD per month
option from https://www.giganews.com.

With 5USD per month I can purchase a virtual host or buy 5 bows of
noodles (China). I'd ask what is your option?

The next option closest to perfect is ARPA membership offered by
SDF.ORG
< http://sdf.org/?join > where you pay $36 and get a life-long access
to their usenet server.

        If all you want is text groups (10MB/month sounds like it) then
there are free options such as eternal-september.org.

I can recommend news.individual.net (see: <http://news.individual.net/>).
They charge 10EUR/year which at today's rates is just under $15 or a little
over $1/month.  I've never looked at how much traffic they allow.  It has
never been a problem for me.

Thanks a lot! Now I am a user of eternal-september.org and it's good!
 
 
 

1. Cheap SCSI disks for Cheap Sun's?


      Well for academics, SUN 3/50 comes really cheap......
                "
                "
      Would somebody summarize about prices for disk drives, tape drives
      etc to go with SUN and post or email to me.
/* End of text from comp.unix.questions */

Yes now that the LIST price of a diskless node Sun 3/50 with a SCSI port
is $5k, and if you have access to getting a volume discount, it goes to under
$4k!  The problem is finding inexpensive SCSI disks to go with it.

Does anyone know of any alternatives available that are comparable to the
prices for Disks for Mac's or IBM PC's?  I'd like something in the 140 Meg
range......

This would be an excellent platform for everyone to start working on their
applications to run under the X-Window System :-)
