By Joshua Laud
If you are a music producer, have a band or just have recorded a song on your own, you might want to upload your music online. There are various ways to store MP3s online depending on your needs. If you need to simply host the file on its own and provide people with a download link there are a lot of easy and quick services to use; otherwise you might want a site that gives you feedback on your music. Whatever your need, most offer completely free MP3-hosting solutions.
