Free Upgrade to Premium Servers

February 23, 2010

Do you use the server news.thundernews.com and are you receiving a 502 authentication error or having trouble connecting?

We announced in late January that beginning in February we would be upgrading all customers on the Standard news.thundernews.com servers to access our Premium servers for FREE as accounts renew during the month of February. This process started February 3 and will proceed through early March.

If you are having trouble connecting to the news.thundernews.com server, your account has probably already been moved to the Premium servers. You need to make a few adjustments to your newsreader software to connect. See this help page for details.
