We are currently offering 100 members (new and current) of our free Artist – Music Directory on GigHive a chance to own their own dot com. Each package will include hosting, a domain name chosen by the artist and purchased by GigHive, a site designed to the artists’ specifications, web-mastering and much more in the artist website package.
As we embark on our third year of existence online, we have decided to take a more important role in the independent artist community. Instead of preaching about the importance of website ownership, we decided to take the initiative and launch a pilot program to get more artists online owning their domain names, websites and to build a network of artists who have 100% control of their traffic, brand and identity.
It is our hope we can open the doors to what is possible on the web when there is not one, but many communities to express what the independent artist community can accomplish on the Internet.
Founded in 2007, GigHive connects independent artists and bands to a global network of: promoters, venues, engineers, musicians, producers, songwriters, singers, instructors and more.
With a Web 2.0 social networking site as its database, the site also features TheBuzz, which is a blog providing daily news and resources about indie arts, music, marketing and websites.
