About Doughty Street Chambers
Doughty Street Chambers was founded in 1990 and is committed to defending freedom and civil liberties. It has a national and international profile across its wide range of practice in criminal law, civil law, human rights and more.
The Doughty Street Chambers website usually receives around 200 visitors a day. However, when an international news story broke that brought internet users straight to the Doughty Street site, it had over 180 visitors every single second for over 12 hours. The site came perilously close to crashing.
The Solution from UKFast
To ensure the site remained online and didn't crash, UKFast increased the RAM on Doughty Street Chambers' website, installed web acceleration technology and optimised its database to keep the website running as normal. Millions of visitors continued to visit the website, but it never faltered.
"UKFast's security accreditations add serious weight to our proposals, and help us win business."
