Build Your Own Website

When I first started out I was a bit daunted by the thought of creating a website, I'd heard that I needed to be able to register a domain, find a hosting service and then learn to program with HTML. I thought, I just want to play music, I haven't got time to mess about with all of this technical stuff.  Well that was then, these days there are plenty of companies out there who take the pain of building a website yourself, and would be a whole lot cheaper than taking on a web developer.

This site is created with Bandzoogle, if you want to try it out for free click on this link

The videos below are of when Bandzoogle did a couple of Open House presentations at Berklee, they are really worth watching (even if you aren't going to use Bandzoogle) as they contain plenty of great website tips
Here's a few other band web site hosting links:
