Nogeno launched in 2011 and is based out of Israel, and hosts hundreds of band websites. Amateur and aspiring musicians are represented via Nogeno, as are more established acts looking to expand their online impact.
Nogeno gives the user complete flexibility of design. The application makes creating an attractive and unique website easy, and allows musicians to share their music with the world in a much more straightforward and simple manner. The application is packed with powerful tools that allow for full album uploads, Facebook embedding and social media synchronizing. The interface’s ease of use means bands can update their own sites without having to fuss with HTML or a web editor.
The creation page at Nogeno is split into simple tabs that do the bulk of the web building, and uses simple forms for site creation. All the user needs to do is copy his or her biography and social media links, then paste them directly into the appropriate spaces in Nogeno. Everything is laid out very plainly—the focus is on usability over aesthetics. Even web newcomers will feel comfortable building a site with Nogeno’s step-by-step guidance.
Musicians interested in registering with Nogeno can login directly via Facebook, or by entering an email address and selecting a password. Once inside, users will be prompted to choose between two separate memberships—automatic or manual.
If the user selects the “Manual” option during registration, Nogeno is free of charge. The “Manual” option requires the user to handle the importing of videos, songs and other details. The “Automatic” membership costs $4.99, but will automatically import songs, albums and other information directly from an existing Bandcamp or MySpace profile.
Nogeno is a very strong application for any band or musician that wants a sleek, effective website that’s easy to manage and easy to create. Users who want to stay in touch with fans and spread content across multiple platforms will be well served by the application’s social media integration. Finally, the flexibility and simplicity of Nogeno are simply unrivaled when it comes to free website services.
