All That You Need To Know About Music Downloads

by Susan Reynolds

Any music lover or some one willing to gift a music CD would want to know the options of music download on the internet. Rather than paying a heavy amount to buy a CD from a shop, it makes sense to download cheap and the music of your choice online. You could then burn the CD to listen to it or gift it. So many people across the world are using the internet to download their favorite music.

So what are your download options? There is not one, but numerous websites that offer music download. Some of these websites offer free music download, while others charge you a small amount of money. Music download options are available in three categories, namely peer to peer sharing, pay per download, life time unlimited download. All these three categories have been discussed below.

With peer to peer sharing websites, you get to download the music for free. The music files are shared between various users all across the web. You might have to download and install software that helps you access the music from other users on the web, and also to share your own music files with others. This option is certainly very lucrative, foe it is free. However, it involves quite a bit of risk as well. You can just not be sure about the credibility of the music files you download from other computers. Furthermore, the application needs you to share a part of your local drive with the rest of the users. Exposing your hard drive with this software may not be the safest. To be on the safe side, you nay want to install a firewall on your computer. Although a firewall can protect your well against most odds, you are still better off being careful.

Pay per download music websites work well for those who are ready to pay some money to get the music of their choice and the music that is secure. These websites use the Itune display to show off the music tracks available. From the latest hits to the most desired music, the Itune has it all. Although, the music quality and the credibility of the files is guaranteed, there are some drawbacks with this option. To start with, you may save very little money as against buying a traditional CD. Further, the copyright restriction may not allow you to copy your music into another computer. Also, your music files may stop playing at all, once your subscription has expired.

Many websites give you an unlimited access to the music for life time. All you need to do is register with them, paying a small amount. Once registered, you pay absolutely nothing thereafter. You are not bound by any copyright issues, or subscription expiry related issues. You would need to pay nothing more than $50 to get your member ship. Now, such a small amount is certainly worth what you get in return.
