NNTP vs HTTP

What is the difference between Easynews' NNTP and HTTP servers?
Our NNTP servers contain a full list of all our carried newsgroups – both discussion groups and alt groups. A user must use a newsreader to access files via the NNTP protocol.

The HTTP (web) server allows access to Usenet via a traditional web browser, such as Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox and Chrome. The web server can be accessed by logging into http://www.easynews.com and proceeding to the Members Area.
