What is Usenet Retention?
Retention is the amount of time files are kept by a Usenet service provider. For example if an article is published today to Usenet World it will remain on our servers for 1,617 days. After the 1,617 day time period the article will be dropped (deleted) to make room for new incoming articles.
How Does a Usenet Server Save Information?
A Usenet computer system is made of countless computer servers from various service providers all around the World. After an article is posted it’s then transmitted amongst the different providers. The process is known as date peering.
