    Since you ask this question, so I believe you are not planning to build the site from ground zero. (include site design, coding and stuff) So you may want to look around and see if there is photos displaying type open source software. Or look for a CMS that capable of hosting photos.

    Once you find what you want, then look for direction on how to host the software.

    You're really asking this in the wrong type of forum.

    But since you asked, I'll try to dissuade you. I think if you want a website to show off your photos, you're better off waiting and spending the time and effort improving your photography before you go showing it off to the world - you don't want to make a name for yourself as a poor photographer when you're clearly still young and have a lot of learning and improvement left in you yet.

    Building a web site that has commercial transaction capability from scratch is very difficult, even for someone who builds web sites. You should absolutely consider buying your domain name and having one of the many hosting services build your site from their stock software. They will also handle all your transactions, but will take a cut. There is one outfit that I saw (DOTEASY) promoting a free enterprise web package. You would still have to buy the domain name and pay the financial services company a cut of each sale. It will work with PayPal also.

    It is clear that you do not know what I am talking about. It is better you either hiring someone to do that for you. Or you need to start learning the basic. Just like in Photography.
