It had quite a humble beginning in early months of its formation where it was known by a different name, "Potters India.: Harry Potter comes to India". Its foundation was laid by Harsh Sadhvani with a website hosted on geocities and a range of Harry Potter fanmade videos under the section 'Homemade HP'. Meanwhile Suman Barua was running a yahoo group called HPindia sucessfully with a lot of participants grouped into houses conducting HP Web Activities. Both Suman and Harsh were also staff at Harry potter India (a well established website that time) under Chetan Bansal (now an IITian).It ws there that these two guys came in contact, and being in the same city, connected. Both wanted to spread to an international dominion and hence came up with 'HPearth.com' and launched it on 31st October 2005.The duo began adding the bricks to the foundation and now it has grown to the cadres of being an International website, the only Harry Potter fan website with Indian roots which has survived the downfall of many big HPfansites.
HPearth is also internationally acclaimed
for its Widgets for Yahoo's Widget Engine which
