Web Site

The Cracked Egg Studios Official Web Site was launched on May 29, 2005.

History

The original site made use of Julius Fučík's musical composition "Entrance of the Gladiators" as background music for the home page.[1] Hosted free by DomainDLX, the site's server frequently went down and its ASP pages would break. The web site moved to a shared server with the Yu-Gi-Oh! Duelist Club until it purchased the domain crackedeggstudios.com on January 14, 2006.

The site moved to a new host, Global Internet Solutions, who provided more disk space and PHP support, so Cracked Egg Studios was able to begin expanding its web presence. Cracked Egg Studios first appeared on the Google search engine at this time.

In Fall 2006, Global Internet Solutions initiated massive upgrades on the server, causing weeks of downtime and redefining previously supported features.[2][3] Cracked Egg Studios transferred to HostMonster, whose support was reputedly better, offered more disk space, more features overall, and had lower rates on December 29, 2006. Despite the illegality of their actions, Global Internet Solutions refused to transfer the domain crackedeggstudios.com. For a time, the web site was only accessible through a backdoor at the Free United Club of Kids web site. When crackedeggstudios.com finally expired, Cracked Egg Studios was forced to purchase crackedeggstudios.net since the former domain would not become available again until May 2007.

Cracked Egg Studios continued to use Hostmonster for several years, until growing demand for the VaultWiki product began to affect server performance and occasionally resulted in the sites being temporarily banned by the host. On April 9, 2011, Cracked Egg Studios migrated its web presence to a dedicated server provided by WiredTree. The web site stayed with WiredTree until efforts to cut costs led the studio to find a more powerful server with HiVelocity for roughly half the cost. According to financial records, this migration occurred during late October 2014.

The web site stayed with HiVelocity until site administrators began considering upgrading the aging server hardware during the COVID-19 pandemic, when hardware was scarce and high-priced, in order to better support new features that were developed for the reopening of the web site, such as higher quality videos. A similarly priced, but significantly upgraded, server was found through LeaseWeb, and the studio's web site was moved March 21, 2022.
