home : about us : history


1up! is your solution!

1up! has been providing Internet solutions for newspapers and other businesses since August 1998.  As a leading new media CMS and online services provider for hundreds of community publications, 1up! also provides programming, advertising sales, production and infrastructure solutions for its customers.

CEO and co-founder, J. David McChesney, worked at small newspaper companies for over 15 years as a photojournalist and editor.  He served as a systems engineer and as corporate director of technology for the former Indiana-based Nixon Newspapers where the idea of 1up! was born.  This legacy of commitment to community publications is the foundation for 1up!’s success.

Headquartered in beautiful downtown Kokomo, Indiana, 1up! employs an experienced and sometimes ornery staff of 12.  1up!’s production services division, 72dpi, is located in Florida.

Technically speaking, 1up!'s network infrastructure is top-of-the-line. Redundancy and clustering is the name of the game to ensure the reliable delivery of your website. And everything is behind a state of the art, high-security firewall. Our co-location center, n|Frame, located just north of Indianapolis, is owned by one of the nation’s largest media companies.  The facility also provides services to companies like Monster.com, Rolls Royce and pharmaceutical giant Eli Lilly.  The center has biometric security, redundant internet connections, redundant power feeds, redundant uninterruptible power supplies, redundant air handling to keep everything nice and cool, and is manned 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

At 1up!, our mission is simple…we understand the unique needs of small to medium-size online publishers and strive to produce efficient, highly cost-effective and intuitive online solutions for them.
