->> Hi Armando,

For my portfolio/blog I use a WordPress theme from Rawfolio and I use Dreamhost for hosting.

I've also heard good things about Squarespace but I don't have personal experience.

For client galleries/sales I use Photoshelter for editorial/commercial work and Shootproof for weddings.

->> I'm currently with neonsky, I have been with them since the beginning. They host my blogs too. One of which hasn't gotten off the ground. Due mainly to me.

For the most part I am happy with them. However, I just want to explore other options to see if there is something much better out there.

->> I have been researching web hosts. I've looked at pricing info and site examples for FolioHD, Pixpa, Squarespace, Photoshelter and Zenfolio.

Zenfolio, Pixpa and FolioHD are all lower cost options but I don't know about their site performance/ease of use..

Photoshelter looks great but it's pretty expensive.

Squarespace is a little cheaper -- occupying the middle ground between the low and high cost options -- but not sure if they are popular among photographers.

Anyone have any thoughts on these or other sites?

->> I also have PhotoShelter in addition to my Godaddy.

I think PhotoShelter is one of the best for those who want to do a lot or very little and don't want to have to know a lot of computer language to make it happen.

http://stanleyleary.photoshelter.com/

Since I had already built my Godaddy site long ago I prefer it, but for those trying to choose from square one I think PhotoShelter is the system to go with.

You can display and sell images online and also have a blog

->> Photoshelter with a self-hosted Wordpress installation running on DreamHost.

The Photoshelter blog plugin did not allow for commenting which I found to be a major let down (and have passed that feedback on to their team). So I just made my blog template match my Photoshelter Beam theme as closely as possible.

Photoshelter is definitely expensive, but for an integrated solution of being able to show, sell and license images in one spot... it's great. If you just wanted to show a portfolio of images and host a blog, strictly Wordpress would be my suggestion.

->> Squarespace. Made the move from a WordPress site running a theme from Graph Paper Press and I haven't had a single complaint so far - looks good, isn't expensive, very infrequent downtime, etc.

Pretty much suits all my needs for now:
