Franklin County Free Press is a nonprofit, local news provider in Central Pennsylvania.
Foreign entities were trying to access the FC Free Press website and intentionally take it down. The constant denial of service attacks were harmful to the website, making it slow and difficult to navigate.
How We Approached It
The LaunchUX team changed the web hosting and implemented security measures to mitigate those types of attacks. Since we’ve done that, the website has not gone down. We also improved the website for readability and relevant news. This keeps people on the website longer so they can find what they want and be exposed to their advertising for longer periods of time.
We’re improving the donation platform so users may support their local paper. Our team is also finding more ways to boost advertisements from local businesses. This helps promote FCFP’s value of supporting local commerce and small businesses.
“The team at LaunchUX has been super helpful and very professional. I would recommend LaunchUX to anyone looking for a dependable, trouble-free home for their business’s website.”
