10 (who?)

I've put it off for so long, and now we have an assignment where we must submit our online portfolio.

I would love to hear of anyone's positive experiences. I have absolutely no idea where to start looking.

Get a blogger page, customise it.

Tis really easy to edit and keep up to date and you have a fair bit of freedom with. Can even redirect your own domain to it like I did with mine -

Most of my friends just used blogspot and it's portfolio option>

-I- used Deviantart's portfolio option (which doesn't link to your main page, and therefore rids all those journals and sketches). I got two professional art jobs using it, so... I'd consider it viable. I just personally like putting more of my time into art than into building a website.

I hear from my professors that DA isn't a good portfolio website, as it is unprofessional, but is a great way to branch out. They suggest Wordpress, since its both free to practice on, and you can eventually buy the webpage.
Good luck!

DA itself. However, Deviantart has a portfolio option that many of my bosses are totally cool with and recommended me to use.
I go with the people who hired me over professors who may not be aware of the portfolio option.

I've been using startlogic for over a decade and have had nothing but positive experiences with them.

I designed mine ( from scratch, but that was after taking a class in web design...
The plus side is I was only limited by my coding knowledge and not what templates I could find, so I built more or less exactly what I wanted.

I found a jQuery gallery that was pretty simple and easy to edit, so I did save myself that headache, lol

Dreamhost works pretty well for me, for hosting.

I have a .webs account, its free for the basics and a few bucks more for your own URL and premium features. I love it, easy to use, professional, nice layouts to choose from! [link]
