Web Hosting Provider The Planet Helps Harry Potter Fan Site Deal with Record Web Traffic

July 9, 2007
July 9, 2007 – (HOSTSEARCH.COM) – Web hosting provider The Planet is helping unofficial Harry Potter fan site MuggleNet.com (http:// www.mugglenet.com) deal with what is expected to be record web traffic, the company announced today. The site is recognized as being the world’s largest Harry Potter fan site and it is preparing for the release of the new Harry Potter movie – “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” – and the July 21, 2007 release of the final Harry Potter book “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” by J. K. Rowling.

MuggleNet.com founder Emerson Spartz started the site at the age of 12. Now, at the age of 20, he currently attends college while managing 120 staff located around the world. “I was fortunate to learn management skills 101 very early, which has prepared me well for a career in business,” explained Mr. Spartz. “Even in college, I see too many people who pursue careers based solely on a financial outcome, rather than on ultimately doing something they really enjoy or love. The money is great, but it’s not sustainable if you don’t enjoy the work.

“I’m often asked for advice about being an entrepreneur,” added Mr. Spartz, “and my answer is always to keep asking ‘why’ when you’re pursuing something new. In my case, I’m constantly thinking about how I can change the site to be even better. There’s always room for improvement with any project.”

“For companies that require streaming media and rich content delivery, The Planet’s data centers and network provide world-class performance to support the most rugged requirements,” explained The Planet’s Vice President of Marketing and Product Management, Mr. Steve Kahan. “In anticipation of traffic fluctuations, sites like www.mugglenet.com easily add additional servers to accommodate traffic spikes.”

Emerson Spartz has co-authored a book entitled “MuggleNet.Com's What Will Happen in Harry Potter 7: Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Falls in Love and How Will the Adventure Finally End” which he is currently promoting.
