Has anyone used Blue Voda or Wix to build their own music website?

I'm looking for a very simple way to set up a half-decent looking site for my lyrics and songs. I wondered what people's experience here has been. BV and Wix are both free, though I'd need to pay a hosting fee to BV.

The emphasis isn't on "free", however. I'd be glad to pay a (realistic) fee for a decent and user-friendly site builder, or to someone knowledgeable who could give me a hand.

Any tips/advice would be appreciated. wink

Thanks!

Donna

I use Vexx Host, have for several years and have had very good service, uptime & etc. The link is in my signature.
There's a special going on that has unlimited bandwidth and storage for under $50.00 per year. Keep in mind that unlimited is subject to how badly your bandwidth affects other sites on the shared server, something all unlimited packages from other hosts are subject to as well. If you really blow up the bandwidth it's time for a dedicated server anyway.
They, as most hosts, have assorted tools including site builders, content management systems such as drupal & etc. The also have a video/music setup. Here's the skinny on that:

Oh, a pretty good FREE host with no ads is Free Hostia. If you have a domain name it's easy to set that up there and if not a sub domain is also easy to set up.
Here's what they offer in their free package.


* Monthly Price /if paid annually/ : FREE
* NO Set-Up Fee
* NO Top/Bottom banner ads
* 250 MB Disk Space
* 6 GB Monthly Traffic
* 1-click 40+ Scripts Installer
* POP3/IMAP E-mail accounts
* 24/7 Customer Support

1-click Installation
Compare All Plans

I have a registered domain on their servers though I have my vexx host as my primary host. I leave the one there because it's been up each time I've accessed it, there's little on it other than a music player application and a short blurb, and, I've been too lazy to move it over to my primary.
