About News Servers

A news server is responsible for tracking the newsgroups it carries. As new articles arrive from around the world, the news server makes them available to you.

Many news servers track thousands of newsgroups; some handle only a small set of newsgroups. Microsoft and Intel, for example, have their own news servers that cover company business and discussions about new hardware and software.
