A list of free news server providers now lives at:

https://sybershock.com/#usenet

Peer operators and usenetizens: if there are more that may be added to
the list please post them here or send to the sysop email on the site
or in this message header.

I would like to find and list every free NNTP host possible. This
should include local niche sites that don't feed yet do allow public
access.

I run a full text feed Usenet server at www.i2pn2.org. This has much
better retention than novabbs.org, which is really just for darknet
use (i2p and tor).

i2pn2.org requires an email address (disposable or whatever), then you
have full access.

Thanks! Do any of these have binaries?

What about news.neodome.net and nntp.aioe.org? They're free too!

No. AFAIK no free servers offer binaries. The software and media pirates
and pedophiles would flood servers with their warez.

AIOE is no more.

i2pn2 is only available on clearnet, there is no i2p or tor access. Use
news.novabbs.org for tor or i2p access.

Thank you for this list !

neodome is only reading. Posting stopped in 2021.

More free newsservers I use:
- paganini.bofh.team
- freenews.netfront.net
- news.grc.com

paganini.bofh.team and freenews.netfront.net are general usenet servers.
They have restrictions for posting, but I do not know what the
restrictions are.

GRC is a newsserver run by Steve Gibson with special own newsgroups.
You can read the newsgroups also with a browser.

Some of the latter:

fltk.org (port 1024)
news.digitalmars.com
news.povray.org
news.tin.org
nntp.lore.kernel.org
news.php.net
news.dbase.com
nntp.perl.org
lugnet.com

For Usenet news servers it's hard to tell what are deliberate
omissions from your list, but some fairly obvious ones:

news.mixmin.net
news.netfront.net
http://open-news-network.org/node/5
