Creating an artist page with domain

Hey Guys,



Just wondering how do I go about creating an artist page for myself. I know there are some companies that do it ! But not too sure who to approach. I know Roben has a pretty good page :slight_smile:



Appreciate the help.



Thanks



Addy

Hey Addy! :slight_smile: Welcome to the forums, haven’t seen you around here before :smiley:



What type of page are you looking for? A Dedicated Website?



If so, Im a freelance creative consultant and graphics designer, could certainly help you out with that if your interested? If you are, drop me a mail dominicr@kandidesignsuk.com and we can talk more about what your looking for.

Not sure on your money situation and how willing you are to learn to fiddle around with things but tumblr is a great platform to get a quick artist “blog” site up:



http://soundpellegrino.tumblr.com/ for example



You can even hook up a custom domain for a few bucks if you are willing to tweak:

Just another option if you are a starving budding artist like myself :stuck_out_tongue:

Thanks Addy! :slight_smile:



Still waiting for my designer to pull his finger out and design my new Artist logo.







It’s all about having a basic knowledge of xml, which is a lot like HTML really. I stressed my brain for a while trying to get my head around it all, but basically i bought an xml website template. Also pay for a hosting server, then it was a case of putting the template up on there then using Dreamweaver (you can use notepad if you like) to edit the information.


Thanks for all the Replies guys, so if we say money how much are we looking at, more like a monthly maintenance cost ? registration fees ? designer fees?

Cost me £25 for the template.



£6 a month for the hosting server, the hosting server costs depends how much space you want but i’d start small if i were you then upgrade when you need it.



I use these guys, pretty cheap deal:

I use Media-Temple for Hosting (www.media-temple.net), there’s is £10 a month and domain registration for 2 years at £20 or there about’s.



When you get into the realms of Designer Fees and Maintenance thou, its a different ball game. It all depends on what platform the site is done, how much graphic work and content is put into etc…

Yeah forgot to mention the cost of domain registration!

Perfect ! I am new to the community and liking it here so far !!
