Getting started with your new website.

Initial setup of your website requires the purchase of a domain name ( from GoDaddy, as well as a website hosting plan (where your website lives) from Squarespace. I will help you through this process. Payment is made directly between you, GoDaddy, and Squarespace.

Here is what to expect for your personal costs, which will either be month-to-month expenses or yearly expenses:

  • Domain name registration with GoDaddy (
    $12 – $15 per year
  • Website hosting with Squarespace:
    $16 month to month = $192 per year
    (or $12 per month billed annually = $144 per year)
  • Website hosting + custom email (Squarespace + G Suite):
    $26 month to month = $312 per year
    (or $18 per month billed annually = $216 per year)

Need photos?

Before even listening to your music, your photo is the first thing a website visitor will experience. High-quality, compelling photography is your chance to make a great first-impression. Land that gig by not only sounding professional with your recordings but also by looking professional with high-quality photographs. I have a trusted photographer who I’ve worked with on all my music projects since 2010. Let me connect you.

Need a bio?

This is your chance to tell your unique story. However, it can be a challenge to write about yourself and your accomplishments. I can connect you with a talented writer who will listen to your story and create a professional, meaningful, and effective Artist Biography just for you. Let me connect you.

Your new website is live. Now what?
