NinjaCentral is an open NZB site that initially had a library of torrents but has now been indexing NZBs. Donations are highly appreciated by the site to keep their servers running, and this allows users to gain more perks when exploring and using the NinjaCentral site.

This indexer has a constantly growing number of indexed items coming from various newsgroups and has well-categorized files and pleasant features.

Features

As mentioned NinjaCentral is an open NZB site but their doors are only open sometimes for a limited period and offer invites for members to share. The site has API access using keys for integration into SickBeard or CouchPotato and has RSS feeds. They have an active community on their forums for users who need additional information or have questions regarding their whole Usenet or NinjaCentral experience. Members also have to option to chat over IRC through an IRC client such as HexChat through the channel #NinjaCentral.

Pricing & Payment Methods

To keep their site running, NinjaCentral accepts donations, and this is rewarded with invites and 12 months of increased daily API usage and grab limits. Free NZBs and APIs are unclear as of the moment, but to donate to NinjaCentral, you can use your PayPal account or pay through Bitcoin or Ethereum.

Retention

There is no retention information with NinjaCentral.

Interface

Like most popular NZB sites, NinjaCentral runs on Newznab, which is a Usenet indexing web application with community features. Their interface is very easy to use with files easily searched through a search box or through their category links. Search results are generated with file age, size, number of files, stats and category.

Technical Details

There aren’t any hardware details or other technical information with NinjaCentral, but they do have an uptime average of 98% over a period of a month and a fast response time of about 800 milliseconds.

Summary

NinjaCentral may not be as popular as some of the best NZB sites out there, but they do have some decent features. Their occasional open registration makes them readily available for a lot of users, although it is quite unclear how much NZB grabs and APIs free users are allowed to have daily. If you opt to upgrade as a donor, you get an impressive amount of grab limits and APIs. Although upon comparing them to other indexers, their basic yearly price is higher, so they have to impress users with their interface, features and overall service. Overall, NinjaCentral may not be the most popular or best NZB indexer around, but they definitely are a good and decent option.
