NC Website Sets Lofty Goal
March 22, 2005 – Southport,
North Carolina (NC) – A local website in Southport, NC is determined
to become the most comprehensive online resource for information
pertaining to Southport, NC and the surrounding areas including Oak
Island, Bald Head Island, St. James, Boiling Spring Lakes, Holden
Beach, Ocean Isle Beach and other outlying areas.
What started out as a hobby
for two local Southport residents has quickly become their passion.
Monica and Benjamin Celinski of Southport started The Southport
in April of 2004 with the intent of sharing the beauty of the
historic fishing village of Southport via the Internet. The website
sprouted from modest beginnings. When first launched the site
offered a business directory, a dinning guide, a golf guide, a real
estate guide, maps, weather and a calendar of local activities and
events. Recent additions include a local events archive, articles,
news and press releases of local interest, photo galleries and more.
“Our next undertaking will be to include photographs of each and
every business in our Business Directory,” said Monica.
“Our site has been well
received by local residents as well as by people looking to visit
the area from other parts of North Carolina and the United States.
We have received inquiries from as far away as California, Arizona
and New Hampshire to name a few,” stated Benjamin. “Our site traffic
is growing exponentially. We predict this rapid growth to continue
with the approach of the busy tourist season and also because of the
explosive growth of the Southport area. February was a record month
for our website. We had 5,932 visitors, 23,881 page views and
226,473 hits during the month of February 2005. By far our busiest
month ever,” Celinski further stated. “This level of traffic makes
the most visited website in the Southport area,” according to
“We enjoy what we do and we
look forward to continuing to add more and more features to our
website. We love the Southport area and are proud to give the area a
place to show off in cyberspace,” said Monica.
