NZB.AG is currently (and for the foreseeable future) completely open registration and better than anything, entirely free and ad-free! To skip all the history and just get signed up, head over to register on nzb.ag now.
* Over 1.8M releases indexed (fresh backfill, completely fresh as of November 1, 2014)
* Multiple frontend servers (more reliable and better performance)
* Sphinx realtime search (faster search)
* Absolutely free, as in freedom from ads and financial obligation.
* Just like everyone else, supports couchpotato, sabnzbd, nzbget, nzbvortex
* We give back, we are nzedb contributors / developers (active)
The history of nzb.ag is quite simple. We were extremely early adopters and contributors to newznab+ (circa summer 2011, before the two biggies quit) and have been fans of it ever since. We have cycled through a few URIs since those early days over three years ago and have come to stick with nzb.ag since 2013. In October of 2014, NZB.ag had 384 active groups, over 11M releases indexed, and more than 47,000 users. We have since purged the database, performed a fresh backfill of the top groups and are back open for new registration. We serve no advertisements to our visitors and have absolutely no plans of doing so. Additionally, there is no cost or requirement to donate to nzb.ag. Fortunately for us, we do not need your funds to keep the site running.
The index is established well enough to operate without any fee or requirement to contribute. Although there is currently no means for you to donate to us, no matter how much you love the site -- we will likely add an option at the beginning of the year. Again, no obligation and no stress.
Lots of indexers claim to be the best, the biggest, and the most badass at the task; but we are mostly all in the same. We all got our start from the same place and are hopefully all working on the same missions -- the difference is we do not ask that you do anything financially to support the site.
What we do ask..
Operating an index can eat up a lot of time. Because of this, we (as infrequently as possible) occasionally send updates as they relate to the indexer to our users. All we ask is that you use an actual email address you check. If something happens and we decide to put the site into maintenance for a period of time and you are not checking your email, you will automatically assume something horrific happened. So, this is all very simple -- please use an email address we can actually reach you at and you will have access to email us directly. We are also on twitter @nzbag and frequently publish updates there.
To get signed up, just head over to https://nzb.ag/register and fill out that super simple form.
Security and Privacy
We utilize a proxy between us and you. This protects both us and you. Additionally, we do not pass the 'X-Forwarded-For' or any other header with your requests to identify you. The only IP addresses we see in our logs are from our proxy providers POPs. Our access logs are rotated and purged daily and are only used (a custom nginx log format) to track API requests and the client (useragent) that made the request. This is so we know which popular clients we should support and which we can focus less attention toward.
We are completely transparent and in the coming weeks will be opening up our entire logging, in near realtime; so everyone can see that we mean what we say. We want to keep our own lives private and secure and wish the same for you.
Post your adverts in here, only indexer's and tracker's allowed. Tradeing invites is not allowed and will result in an bannishment/warning.

Been a CP user and nzb.ag user for a while, been lurking and never post but wanted to comment that nzbag is sweet.
