Jiggmin2.com was a hosting website used by Jacob Grahn from early 2007 until January 2016.

History

Created in early 2007, jiggmin2.com served as a host for Click Upon Dots and other multiplayer game servers. The website expanded later that year to also host various files needed for newer single player games to properly operate, such as Musical Evenizer.

Jiggmin2.com also hosted Platform Racing 2's http server (which contains levels, player data, PMs and music among others) from the game's launch until it was superseded in December 2010 by PR2hub to relieve stress on the website. After the move, only Creation and the Borderless chats would receive hosting on jiggmin2.com, as Platform Racing 3 and War of the Web were instead hosted by Sparkworkz and pagodabox.com, respectively.[1]

Shut Down

On 2015-09-09, Jiggmin officially announced he would be dropping support for all multiplayer games besides Platform Racing 2, although their servers had already been down for months at that point. He stated: "Managing [the games'] servers is another time drain. They'll need to be streamlined or removed. I plan to keep PR2 running at least until PR4 is out, though."[2] The announcement also coincided with the launch of his new forum Freegoose.

As its primary purpose no longer needed serving, Jiggmin chose not to renew jiggmin2.com's domain in January 2016 and shut the website down.

Trivia

  • In its first few months, visiting the homepage took users to a list of various files found on the website rather than just a simple message.[3]
