History and Background of mfiles

1&1 Green Hosting The mfiles site first appeared on the web in May 2000, with a few pages hosted on free web-space as an experiment to explore the potential of creating and playing classical music files created using Sibelius (now owned by Avid). The experiment was a modest success, and the site's growing content was transferred to a professional hosting company - IONOS (formerly 1&1), who we highly recommend for price, features, reliability and its use of renewable energy. Since its formal launch in March 2001, with a particular aim to bridge the divide between Classical Music and Film Music, the site has grown organically with an ever-expanding catalogue of Sheet Music, MIDI files and MP3 files, together with informative content in the form of articles, reviews and reference material about composers and their music. The growing administrative demands of the site and its commercial music publishing arm then resulted in the formation of Music Files Ltd.
