PMN was actually my last of three Persian music websites.
The whole idea originated in 2000 with me and my then girlfriend not being able to understand Persian songs very well since both of us had been raised outside of Iran. I developed PersianLyrics.com and we spent countless hours listening to songs and writing down the lyrics in Farsi with English alphabet to help others like us. At the same time we started adding music as well. As the site grew more popular the demand for content and also cost for server and bandwitdth grew with it (it cost a lot back then). As a result the website was taken down in June 2001 to allow us to focus our resources on our other profitable businesses.
Our passion for Persian music never died though. Some time later we decided to re-develop the website from the ground up, making it database driven, starting a community among other things and also allowing user content. The result of this was Ghanari.com, which grew as a Persian community and music website. The problem still remained though, it was consuming a lot of resources (time and money) and making no money, not even to cover it's own costs.
We decided to try one last time to make a business out of our passion, on August-September 2003 we launched ParsMusic.Net. Unfortunately, I believe we were too early to start an online music business for the Persian community and in April 2004 we decided to close down.
