news server

A news server is a central news server on the Internet or Usenet on which discussion forums or newsgroup postings are stored and managed.

News clients have access to the newsgroups via such a news server. They can dial into the discussion forums, view the posts and comment on the topics themselves. The news clients use newsreaders to manage and read the contributions.

The news servers communicate with each other and with the news clients via the Network News Transfer Protocol( NNTP) and update the entries between the different news servers via this protocol. News servers are provided by the providers.
