Artist / Band / Label Website Hosting
We’ve taken the nonsense and stress out of owning a music website. We have many years experience of music, website design and digital marketing and know what’s needed – we walk the walk! We don’t just offer hosting packages either, we’ll also install WordPress for you and a top of the range template that allows you to build via drag and drop plus add funky animations.
We have lots of advice and guides but if you still don’t feel like building your site then we can do that too. We know how precious your time is as a musician and offer some low budget options for getting you up and running. You’ll have a cPanel login for managing your hosting space and a WordPress login for managing your site so you can do as little or as much as you want.
You can start on the lower package and upgrade at any time once you’ve assessed how much space and bandwidth you need (our packages are generous though, Indie Muso is good for most artists and bands). If you’re a company (label / publisher / etc) then feel free to get started on the lower package too and increase as needed.
Please check out the FAQs at the foot of the page. We aim to simplify things as much as possible so that you can get on with the important stuff – writing, recording and promoting your music.
Buy the Indie Muso package one year in advance and get 50% off!
That’s just £21 for one year of hosting.
Includes all of the above perks, we set it up for you and install plugins, add a great premium theme and create the basic pages that you need – just add content!
Why are we offering this so cheap? Well, we know first hand how difficult it is to fund and manage a music career so we want to make this as easy as possible for you. Secondly, we want a long-term relationship with you – we’re looking to create success stories!
Only a limited number of sites available at this price (hosting will be charged at the Indie Muso rate of £3.50pcm from year 2 onwards). Payment via PayPal.

I’m not in the UK, can I still get website hosting?
Of course! It doesn’t make any difference where you’re based, we can still get you set up with a hosting package.
Why should I use your WordPress hosting rather than a service like Foursquare, Wix or Bandzoogle?
For starters, we’re a smaller company so we can offer a cheaper service, an important factor for musicians who have such huge career costs. Also, you’ll ultimately have more control over your website when it comes to design, SEO, number of pages, etc. Plus we have 30 years music biz experience and 18 years digital marketing experience – we know our stuff!
Do you display an advert?
We add an inconspicuous Hosted by link in the footer which you can delete without cost if you want to. However we’re grateful for anyone leaving it there as it can help us to get more business.
What is included in this deal?
In addition to hosting, we’ll install the high-quality DIVI theme, which you can use for as long as you host your website with us. We’ll also install some basic plugins and data for you, to get you operational straight away. All you’ll need to do is replace the sample text and images with your own.
What about GDPR?
You’ve probably heard a lot about new data protection laws in recent months. While it is your responsibility to make sure that you handle your fan data responsibly, we will install the plugins you need to get you GDPR compliant on your website.
Is there a limit to the number of pages I can have?
We don’t limit things like this. It’s better that you have individual pages for each release as this will increase your rankings in Google. You can also add an unlimited number of blog posts providing there is disk space left on your chosen hosting package. If you need more space then it’s easy to upgrade.
Do I need to know coding to use WordPress?
Not at all, it’s very straightforward. The DIVI theme allows you to drag and drop different content blocks so that you can very easily and quickly build a great looking site. There is lots of information out there on WordPress but if you’re really stuck for time and don’t want to do it yourself, you can always hire someone to develop it for you via our marketplace.
What are the steps I need to take?
Firstly you’ll need a domain name and then once you’ve purchased your hosting package from us, we’ll contact you with your ‘nameservers’, so that you can point your domain name to our server. Please bear in mind it can take up to 72 hours for a new website to settle but in most cases you can start adding content within the first day of it going live.
What about uptime?
Our sites are up and running 99.9% of the time. Like with anything in life, things do occasionally go wrong but our server has a team working 24/7 to make sure that any issues are resolved as quickly as possible.
