The High Country Press website loads faster and is more secure with Outer Banks Media’s managed website hosting services.

Outer Banks Media (OBX Media), a North Carolina digital marketing agency specializing in website design, managed website hosting, internet marketing and advertising, announced the addition of its new client, High Country Press. Based in Boone, NC, High Country Press focuses on news, community information and events in Boone, Blowing Rock, Banner Elk, Beech Mountain and other surrounding areas of the High Country in Watauga and Avery counties. In addition to their online newspaper, they also publish High Country Magazine seven times a year, as well as the seasonal High Country Visitor Guide for the summer, fall and winter seasons.

Outer Banks Media worked with High Country Press to optimize and streamline the website while transferring it to the OBX Media managed WordPress hosting platform that leverages private cloud technologies and a content delivery network.

“Our site is noticeably more stable and loads so much faster now,” said Ken Ketchie, founder of High Country Press. “And knowing that our information is secure, gives us the confidence that we will be able to reliably deliver news to our readers.”

“In addition to knowing that our site is in excellent hands, we were extremely impressed with the speed and determination that the Outer Banks Media team brought to our site as we were experiencing a major hack. From our first phone call through the process of restoring our site back online, C.K. Evans and his team were always just a phone call or email away and literally worked through the night to repair our site. Their knowledge of WordPress and their understanding of how our site operated certainly turned a bad situation into a happy ending. We were blown away with their level of service and their commitment in getting the job done.”

Utilizing OBX Media’s hosting services package, High Country Press benefits from daily website back-ups, heightened website security, CDN-ready hosting and frequent website malware scans.

“When your business is delivering news over the web, it’s critical that the site be fast, reliable and secure,” said C.K. Evans, owner of OBX Media. “We are pleased to have the opportunity to improve the operation of their site and offer better security on our dedicated WordPress management platform.”

Since transferring the site to OBX Media’s server, High Country Press has improved website loading times and image loading times. This faster, more efficient hosting platform offers improved website visibility on search engines and provides an overall better user experience.
