Check the who-is search engine at the registration service website if your name has already been taken. Input the name from your notepad and select search. Wait for the service to tell you if the name is available as a new domain. Confirm that you want to register the name as your own if it is confirmed as available.

Pay the fee via credit card or online payment tool account. Wait for the registration service to register the new domain address in your name.
Decide whether you want your new domain to just sit undeveloped or if you want to develop it into a website as well.

Upload the sound files to an online host. Many Internet service providers give their users a small amount of web space for free with their Internet accounts. If yours does not, look for a service like http://www.DataZap.net that specializes in hosting files specifically for auctions. Many image hosts will also host photographs.
Copy the address where your files are located. This is the address the host provides to your files and should start with 'http://www."
Go to http://www.eBay.com and click 'sell.' If prompted, enter your login information.
Choose a category for your auction and give it a title and price.
Click the HTML option from the box towards the middle of the page entitled 'Describe the item you're selling.'

Register a domain name for your website. Your domain name is the web address that will be used to reach your website. Your domain name should be catchy, memorable, and easy to spell. You may choose to use your name as your domain name or the name of your production company. Registration for the domain name can be as little as $1 to over $14 per year.
Obtain web hosting for your website. If you choose to have music samples on the website, your web hosting package may be more expensive than choosing to have a website with general information about yourself. Web hosts have multiple servers used to maintain the content and traffic that comes to various websites. Web hosts can charge as little as $3 dollars or over $100 per month. Start with a cheaper web hosting package initially, and as your business and content grows you may be asked to upgrade to a more expensive account.
Sketch out the look and content of your website. Since music producers are considered creative, your potential clients may expect to reach an edgy and creative website as well. Draw out the colors, logos and messages you would like to add to your site. Use word-processing software to check for grammatical and spelling errors when writing your content.
Choose your best music, beats and samples of finished work to showcase on your website. Potential clients need to hear a sample of your work to determine if you will be a good match for them. Make sure any work you upload to your website is copy-written so it is not stolen. Copyright your music through the U.S. Copyright Office (see resources). Allow friends, family and people you may know in the music industry to help you pick out the best media you would like to showcase on your website.
Create your website using preexisting templates or hire a freelance web designer to create your website. There are website templates (free and paid) you can download that will allow you to input information for your site. Web templates may limit you to certain colors and content, so you may want to hire a freelance web designer to design a unique site. Use sites like getafreelancer.com or guru.com.
