Description

12 Months High-Speed 100% Green Energy Hosting & Support

Band Theme is committed to protecting the natural world in whatever way we can, so we are proud to have developed a partnership with an award-winning hosting partner. A partner that we have worked with for over a decade providing hosting solutions for artists including Nine Inch Nails, Placebo & Soundgarden. Our hosting is powered by 100% renewable energy – no vague carbon offsets, just a direct relationship between the datacentre and Ecotricity to power the facility with energy generated by 100% renewable sources.

But that’s not all. Band Theme’s hosting solution has been built specifically to get the very best out of our WordPress Theme and moulded around everything a band, musician or record label needs. So whether it’s dealing with an unexpected spike in traffic, when that hit single drops to high-speed performance for music-streaming, Band Theme has got you covered.

All delivered at an affordable price.

FAQ
  • WordPress.com or WordPress.org?

    The key difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org is who is actually hosting your website.

    With WordPress.org, you host your own site. With WordPress.com, on the other hand, it’s WordPress.com that takes care of all of this for you but with some restrictions.

    Band Theme will work on WordPress.com but there are limitations, such as no custom domain name, file size limits, plugin restrictions and more. It is for this reason we recommend WordPress.org. If you’re unsure, we offer a hosting package to take care of everything for you.

  • How long does it take?

    Band Theme is designed to get you up and rocking in no time.

    If you purchase our hosting or installation package we aim to have your site installed within a few working hours (subject to receiving any required details from you).

    It’s then up to you to add / edit all your content. When you’re ready to go live, it can take 72 hours for a domain to update, depending on your provider (although in reality this is often much quicker).

    We would normally suggest you plan ahead and allow at least 5 days from start to go-live.

  • Can I keep my existing content?

    To make an exact copy of the Band Theme templates you’ve seen online, we have to overwrite your existing content and replace your website. If you want to keep an existing website running while you design your new website, we strongly recommend using a second server (also known as “Staging Server”).

    If you purchase hosting with us, we will install your site on a Staging Server first.

    Once the Band Theme template is imported into your staging server, you will be able to migrate your existing content to that staging server. By doing this, your existing website will continue to run, and you will have all the time you want to develop/design the new website on your second server. When you are ready to launch your new website, you will just have to point your domain name to the staging server so it becomes your new “live” server.

    If you need help importing all your content from another service to Band Theme, please contact us to discuss requirements.

  • Can I buy a domain name with you?

    We do not offer a domain name service at this time.

    If you wish to buy a domain name, we would recommend a service like 123-Reg.

  • Does your hosting include email?

    No, our hosting package does not include email at this time.

    We would recommend using a service like Google Workspace (formerly G Suite), a market-leading email provider and relatively easy to set up.
