Band website, how do it on the cheap?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I would like to know if any of you had any past experience about creating & having a band website?

I am not a programmer and I do not want to learn how to code HTML just to create that one website.

Here are the things that we want:

- Our own .com domain

- Servers included, with unlimited transfer

- Unlimited content/songs

- Music player on the website

- Fans can contact us directly on the website

It would be nice if it had Facebook & Twitter integration too.

How much should I be looking to spend for a custom website from a professional webmaster (including the requested features above)? Many people told us between 1,500$ and 3,000$ is the average pricing nowadays, is that true!!!? Do you guys have any suggestions? Is Myspace still good?

Find a good hosting deal, often they have a domain registration included type package. For ease I would use set it up as a wordpress site , tons of pre built themes under $100.00 .Do it your self and other than the hosting thats all it will cost.

Heres a link to some band/music type themes http://www.premiumwp.com/wordpress-music-themes/

Domain name; $10-15 per year

Hosting ~ $6.00 - $9 per month for unlimited domains and everything else

A free Wordpress theme designed for music/band

Set it up yourself - it's not hard - I can do it so it can't be hard

Use plugins to add music and youtube videos

All done.

Hi there,

Yeah the prices are about around that much but depends on what you want to have on the website, you can have a professionally designed website for much less also. I've worked with a web design company in the past, I'll tell you more about them via pm. You can have your website up and running within a month.
