    Anyway, my band needs a website. Any suggestions out there on how to make a great web with cool features. (Nothing too difficult):meh:

    Yeah, as much as I bitterly hate and despise Myspace, they really are the go-to venue for bands to promote themselves on the web these days- and there are many very easy-to-use resources for spiffing up a Myspace page with graphics, audio, etc. without having to know much programming.

    We use Bandzoogle:

    Seems a lot of bands from my area do. The webpages all look fairly similar, but it's cheap and easy.

    Check out the link to my bands webpage in my profile for a sample.

    Hate the MySpace all you want....but they're kind of the current de facto venue.

    Honestly...I loathe them as well. I'd be inclined to keep the MySpace kinda sparse and steer traffic towards an actual website rather than use MySpace as the lone online representation.

    Thats what we're doing. Myspace because it's expected to have one, but our own site hosted via GoDaddy ($5 a month) to handle the brunt of info as we move forward.

    Yahoo! has a great sitebuilder that you can download and their domain hosting is pretty cheap. With a little bit of HTML work, you can actually make it pretty cool. You can make a good one even without knowing any code, though. I built my site with it and it has always turned out well.
