    just got my notice. bummer got to find a new site.
    sounds like if you want to go with cnet you will be starting all over.does\'nt sound like they\'re transfering anything
    i thought it was fun: charts and everything. i had a new age( ambient) piece hit number 9.
    i always thought they should have charged extra if you wanted more then 128kb which sounds like crap.

    CNET ate up most of the indie software market (ZDNET and others) then charged the smaller guys big bucks to put their software on CNET. I\'m sure they will do the same for indie music. [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img] It will be more corporate than ever at mp3.com.

    On the other hand, I had a wonderful experience at mp3.com. It was my first attempt at getting my music played over the internet. I have met so many artists all over the world and collaborated with some. With more than 500,000 plays and a 5-digit figure (in US dollars) earning from royalties, that was more than enough exposure for a third-world-country-rural-town-boy like me.

    This didn\'t buy me a house in Beverly Hills - I know this is trash and unbelievable crap to most, but in my opinion, mp3.com has opened vast possibilities for thousands of artists all over the globe. It sure had a lot of promise and too bad things didn\'t work out. It\'s sad to see it being tossed from company to company, but I hope it will find its rightful home with CNet.

    I agree, Nhick. mp3.com was very good for me. I\'ve been there since it\'s very early stages when it was more for the artists. I\'ll be sorry to see it go.

    So does anyone have good ideas for what to do now? I enjoyed MP3.com, but it\'s going away and that\'s all there is to it. I\'ve heard good things about readyhosting.com, but I enjoyed being part of an OMD community. I\'d like to start figuring out next steps sooner rather than later.

    Does anyone use digitalmusic, ampcast, IUMA or 1sound? Are there any others worth looking into? What have been your experiences?

    Steve,

    I was thinking of going to readyhosting.com until I read this in the site\'s Terms of Service :

    \"You are not permitted to have any commercially available software, fixes, patches or electronic media (ex. MP3s, AVI, WAVE, etc.) for download on your site. We reserve the right - at any time, to terminate service if we find that you have violated this term.\"

    Not good for musicians, eh?

    I came upon PowWeb.com and I decided to go with it: 1,000MB storage and 65gig transfer. I don\'t know if 65gig is almost as good as unlimited transfers that comes with readyhosting.com but I know that electronic media files are allowed as they are legally yours.

    I hope I made the right choice.

    As far as other mp3 sites are concerned, I think Soundclick.com is a good alternative. Song approvals are a breeze and guests don\'t have to sign-in to listen to music. Ampcast.com is ok too. Tonight, I also just learned about MUSICV2.com which is a fairly new mp3 hosting site but it looks promising.

    IMHO, the best thing to do is to get your own website (with your own domain name) and for added exposure, you can subscribe to other mp3 hosting sites and then link them back to your main website. At least, that\'s what I am planning to do.

    I hope this helps.
