[Newsgroups] Newshosting VS Highwinds

I know they are sister sites, but I've also read that Newhosting has their own storage, servers, etc. Is there any benefit of a Newshosting subscriber having a filler account from a Highwinds reseller? Does a takedown notice to one automatically result in a takedown of the other, or must they be sent to both companies?

After testing, yes there is a benefit to having a Highwinds fill account if you are a Newshosting subscriber.

Highwinds runs 3 main server farms : Newshosting, Easynews, and UsenetServer. If your fill server uses Easy or UNS as a backend and you used Newshosting as your primary then yes that would work. The problem if you are using a reseller like Newsgroupdirect is finding out which of the 3 Highwinds backends farms it uses.
