Portsmouth Press to offer new memberships

PORTSMOUTH, R.I. — Portsmouth Press has grown thanks to you, the readers! Due to the sheer volume of visitors, we are planning on adding new services and features.

Starting Wednesday, March 19, we are testing out our new Select Membership feature. You may notice some articles now require membership.


While Portsmouth Press has grown to receive a large viewership – 8,400 unique visitors this month, including 3,300 alone this week as of this posting – maintaining a community news platform comes with costs, especially for security and technical support.

The new Memberships come with a number of benefits, including breaking news alerts, exclusive content, and the option to receive a daily or weekly newsletter with local news and upcoming events. We plan to offer much more to members in the near future, including local coupons and deals, informational columns, videos, and more!

Many articles will still remain free on the website for those unable to join. Current subscribers will also receive a discount on their membership. Memberships are available for a week, month, or year.

Stay tuned for more features in the near future!

If you have any questions or problems with using the new Membership feature, please feel free to email me at
