    Hi, I'm looking to set up a website to post my photos on and direct people (possible clients) to. I want something better than myspace or flickr or a blog. I don't need anything fancy. Is there anywhere where I can have a site dedicated to my photography but not have to pay for the domain?

    Thank you

    You have to spend some money to make money. If you have no skills in web design, I suggest looking at Smugmug. You can customize your site and they have a great help forum.

    There are free domains but they all come with loads of ads and a tag in the url address.

    And it would never look professional enough for people to trust you.

    edit: domains nowadays are pretty cheap anyway.

    It's the best and probably most important 9 bucks you will ever spend when it comes to basic marketing...

    and with go daddy being dirt cheap for hosting you can get it all there..

    I resell their domains and its just dirt cheap.. I cannot touch it even running my own servers as I do....

    If you plan on charging for your photography then plan on paying for a website and or domain. The "not having to pay" attitude is very unprofessional. Takes money to make money.

    If your wanting a decent website. I own a webdomain. Pazilla
    We are in the process of creating premium accounts and will allow for the user to have a dedicated website...IE... .pazilla/TylerF We are working on the design right now but that would be a good free option for you

    I understand that it takes money to make money. But I'm not 100% sure if I can make money through photography if that makes sense.

    Then simply use a service from MS or Flickr and get our photos up for people to see.. Flickr is a great starting point for many and has launched some into busienss becase of the avid audience the site already contains..

    Plus if you suck they will be happy to tell you and that sort of feedback is hard but very important.

    Honest feedback on Flickr? You're joking right? All I see anymore is a bunch of useless 'awards'. If you want honest feedback, forums like this is the way to go. ;)
