The exact date Planet Padua started can not be found, and
actually started with a website made by Kevin, about a group of friends who played
Footbag and called themselves the "U.H.S Crew" (United
HackySackers Crew). The website has long gone but the idea of a
place where all the friends could go and share their thoughts lived
on. Soon after Planet Padua was born at planetpadua.f2s.com. The
site was hosted for free and lacked content and services, but its
growth was fast and furious. Once the site was going strong it was
very apparent that a new server was needed, and together Chris,
Jesse, and JD purchased Planet Padua's spot at
planetpadua.clanpages.com on October 9th, 2001. The site grew with
tremendous support from its viewers, and after a little hacking
planetpadua.com reigned on. Not to late after namezero started
charging for domains so planetpadua.com was lost and
planetpadua.dot.nu was put in its place. After months at
planetpadua.dot.nu the url got screwed over yet again and something
new was needed. With much support www.planetpadua.net
was born and now lives in what you see today.
Now on its 4th official layout and more
than a year after first opening Planet Padua is stronger than ever.
Services and content are never ending as the battle for internet
supremacy goes forth into the new millenium. Thank you for your
support in making the best website on the net!
