I would suggest, to buy a domain with your band-name (.com) - this is 50$ a year. Building a site with a free hosting makes no much sense - will give you a bad webadress and it will not have a good index with Google.

Just my two cents..

Bernhard is right, better to pay a little than have a free (look at those 150 ad's on my home page) site. Not sure about in the US but in the UK I can register a .com for $17 a year plus get web hosting (without ad's and with lots of space) for around $50 a year.

Best to shop around but also look at what you are getting as well as the price. I've been stung with poor service and uptime fo a cheaper price. I use for my web hosting and buy in the reseller package. I have a number of personal and business sites that means it's cheaper buyingthe reseller package. Costs me less than $200 to host up to 5 big sites and the service is excellent. You could even get together with other local bands to share the cost.
OK, OK It's back to rudiments for me! I'll be back in a few months
