    A list of free news server providers now lives at:

    https://sybershock.com/#usenet

    Peer operators and usenetizens: if there are more that may be added to
    the list please post them here or send to the sysop email on the site
    or in this message header.

    I would like to find and list every free NNTP host possible. This
    should include local niche sites that don't feed yet do allow public
    access.

    I run a full text feed Usenet server at www.i2pn2.org. This has much
    better retention than novabbs.org, which is really just for darknet
    use (i2p and tor).

    i2pn2.org requires an email address (disposable or whatever), then you
    have full access.

    You could add mine. It's targeted to Polish users, that's why webpage is

    http://news.chmurka.net/

    Reading is free for everyone, but posting requires registration (also
    free, I just prefer to add accounts manually to minimize / avoid spam and abuse).

    I will be adding some more after I make some time to test and verify
    them. Please keep the leads coming. Even niche and read-only servers
    like gwene, oldusenet, and feedbase will be added to the list.

    No. AFAIK no free servers offer binaries. The software and media pirates
    and pedophiles would flood servers with their warez.

    i2pn2 is only available on clearnet, there is no i2p or tor access. Use news.novabbs.org for tor or i2p access.

    news2.informatik.uni-stuttgart.de
    news.cyber23.de
    paganini.bofh.team

    . informatik.uni only allows reading. cyber23 has had a period when it allowed reading and posting but now it's only reading. None of the 3
    requires registration.

    Thank you for this list !

    neodome is only reading. Posting stopped in 2021.

    More free newsservers I use:
    - paganini.bofh.team
    - freenews.netfront.net
    - news.grc.com

    paganini.bofh.team and freenews.netfront.net are general usenet servers.
    They have restrictions for posting, but I do not know what the
    restrictions are.

    GRC is a newsserver run by Steve Gibson with special own newsgroups.
    You can read the newsgroups also with a browser.

    Right, but didn't someone say it was being worked on?

    Months ago - no news since then.

    Dead since months. It was my nntp server of choice.

    Yes :
    Newsgroups: alt.free.newsservers,news.admin.peering
    Subject: Re: Admins of borked Usenet providers have vanished.
    Date: Sun, 5 Mar 2023 19:48:22 -0000 (UTC)

    or
    http://al.howardknight.net/?ID=168336278800

    .On the other hand there is
    Newsgroups: comp.lang.c
    Subject: Re: on 'pythonic' a,b=b,a

    or

    .I'm more inclined to believe the sickness version because the owner of
    aioe did post on usenet. I've seen post of his at least on news.admin.net-abuse.usenet .So if it were a server issue , he would have
    said something. And of course a server issue would have been fixed by now.

    For Usenet news servers it's hard to tell what are deliberate
    omissions from your list, but some fairly obvious ones:

    news.mixmin.net
    news.netfront.net

    Neat! I had no idea anyone was still running the 'original' reference implementation.

    Looks like some development has continued, at least within the FreeBSD community, even has IPv6 support:
