Website Support/Hosting for Artists

Artist Member Michael Partington has the following services available to artists.

From Michael Partington:


My friends and family have known for years that I've been developing web sites for small companies and corporations around the US for the past 14 years, but recently it was brought to my attention that some of you thought that I only did web design and development for large companies. That's just not correct; I design and build many websites for many small businesses, not-for-profits, and individual artists too.

Here are two personal examples of websites using a newer blog-style of communication implementing modern up-to-date html code. (click the links to view these pages)

What this type of website can do for you is:
  1. It makes your website very search engine friendly. People searching the web can find you more easily.
  2. It turns your website into a successful social marketing site - a proven success in today's marketing techniques
  3. It allows you, the website owner, to add/update/delete your own photos, page content, and news articles yourself. You NO LONGER have to call a web developer to make simple updates when needed. If you've already completed a MySpace or Facebook page, then you already know how to update a website that I can build for you.
  4. It's VERY cost effective to build. Most blog-style websites start at under $799. If e-commerce capabilities are also needed, the cost starts at $1299.
If you or someone you know need a website that's up-to-date with today's marketing practices, search engine optimization structure, and cost effective please contact me.

Now if you have an immediate need before 11-30-2009, the starting cost will only be $499. With an e-commerce solution connected to your existing PayPal account, the starting cost will only be $999. If a domain name is also needed, it only costs $10.95/year. If any website is started before 1-1-2010, the hosting fees will be lowered to ONLY $0.99/month for the first year. That's only $22.83 for both your domain name and the first year of hosting for a new website! (Normally hosting fees are $9.95/month if paid monthly or $7.95/month if paid annually)

Call me at (317) 577-9444 or email me at to have any questions answered or to discuss in further detail. Please pass this messaeg on to anyone that may be planning a new website for their small business, organization, or themselves.

All the best,

Michael Partington

  1. As a web designer/developer and husband of an artist I agree that a website is definitely a way to attract future patrons. It's also a way to attract art students also if you teach private classes. I'd recommend selling a few works of art and using a free blog service for a time before hiring someone to build a custom website. Websites can keep patrons involved with your art, since they probably aren't seeing your work in person every month.

  2. In the present world of online marketing, web hosting is very supportive in seo and the scope of web hosting services depends on many aspects according to the requirements of the website as it is a personal or a business.
