After all, isn’t that what the consumer wanted? Did they not ever say "If the prices of CDs went down, then I’d buy my music instead of getting it for free and having to deal…Read more
If you've been with Bandzoogle for at least 11 months, you've probably noticed that nagging message in your control panel reminding you to pay $14.95 to renew the domain name that we gave you for free when you signed up.
