is back! The past few months have been a little hectic as we've
been working to get things back online. We apologize for any inconvenience
this may have caused. During this time we have put new servers and
a new software system into place. We will continue to offer many
of the same services as we did before with a few changes that I
will outline below. Our regular writers and columnists, including
OnlineRock's own Virtual Musician
will still provide their insights and opinions. We will also continue
to profile bands and feature songs in MP3 format.
The new Web building software now integrates Web based e-mail along
with your Web site. Your email address is the same as your user
name (email@example.com). We have moved all of your files
to the new servers and your Web address will be the same as before.
Unfortunately you will not be able to edit your old pages with the
new software and links to your counters and guest books will no
longer work. You can edit the pages using good old HTML. We have
provided a HTML editor when you log in. The good news is that the
new software is much more robust and has many features, including
logs, forms, guest books, tables and sub-directories to make professional
looking Web sites. After using the new software, you won't miss
the older version.
you've used the older version of our email system and had a different
user name then your Web site, you can check it by clicking
here. You can view all your old mail but you can not send or
receive it from the old system. We recommend that you sign up for
an account using our new system.
During the time that our services were off-line, many things have
changed in both Internet services and online music. We needed to
figure a way to move forward. One that benefits both our users and
OnlineRock as a company. We will need your help.
the next few months we will implement a number of services and programs
that will help us reach these goals. In many cases, this will involve
doing what you, as a practicing musician already do. We ask that
you use our links to buy any gear or music supplies that you would
normally buy. I'd never buy a guitar without playing it first, but
standard items such as mics, strings, cables and recording equipment
can all be purchased through OnlineRock's affiliation with
Friend. We also ask that you support our sponsors.
will also be expanding our Web services by offering FTP access,
sub-domain names and larger Web accounts all for a small monthly
fee. Our Digital Music Store will be revamped to include CD fulfillment
services in conjunction with downloadable music sales. For now,
the store is off-line. Then, later this year, we will announce OnlineRock
Records, a small independent label for musicians of all sizes.
OnlineRock appreciates your patience and understanding during this
transition. We feel that in the long run we will be able to provide
much better products and services to all of our members. Please
note that our User's Agreement
and Privacy Statement have
changed. We recommend that you read them. If you have any questions
or comments, please send them directly to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
