Would like to build a web page to show my images, perhaps sell some for new kit. Have my own domain name already, so do you have any ideas..


Thanks

Paul.

Hi Paul,

I would recommend www.foliopic.com . There is an free e2 membership voucher for the upper packages and it should have nearly all the features you would want to get started.

Try iPage. They're from the US and are cheap, easy to build your site with various ways to do it.

And with possible good reason....be very sure to research them and their review/feedback contributions first... Sad

Foliopic sounds safer....with EPZ connection if help is needed....

Foliopic worked very well for me (although admittedly I won a Smugmug account last year so have defected to them for now) - the ability to add pics to the Foliopic site direct from the EPZ portfolio was a wonderful time-saver and one aspect I definitely miss Smile

I'd happily recommend them anytime.

I've gone from a clikpic to a photim and now to zenfolio, over the last 8 years plus, each time for additional benefits and as the site more than wipes its feet in sales, easily justified.

From starting with clikpic, to photim then zenfolio, would recommend then all.

Another vote for Zenfolio - I've recently moved to them and the layout options and tools to build the site are great

Just signed up for a free trial with Zenfolio - looks very slick and reasonably priced.

Awful company and awful hosting. I bought their shared hosting for 1 year some time ago - site was down very often, a few times per day, for a small period of time. On all my complains support of iPage was telling me "At the moment your website works correctly". The same each time - it seems that they run overloaded servers and so huge number of clients that they don't care if clients unsatisfied by quality of their services will stop to be their clients. I left this hosting and moved to other hoster.

As for me, the best solution is to use WordPress theme for portfolio sites. Some allow not only to see photos as portfolio but also to sell them.
There are excellent free photo themes. Check this: http://www.beautifullife.info/web-design/35-best-free-online-portfolio-themes-for-photographers/

I use smugmug as a hosting for my website. They have plenty of templates and a plethora of features, and on top if you really need, it also takes html or css programming to customise. Highly recommended.
