    I'm the owner (one of, anyway) Foing.com, a web host that will be launching in the next couple of weeks. We intend to have a hosting product specifically designed for photographers and other creatives with some gallery software and stuff already built in so that it's really easy to get up and running.

    If you sign up at our website (www.foing.com) you will receive some really great coupons when we launch for being one of our first customers. For the 'folio' package, you'll have to use the 50% coupon, as the basic hosting will not have the portfolio software available.

    I hope we can earn your business :) Send me a note if you have any questions or concerns (brian AT foing DOT com).

    We got Foing launched yesterday. I think our FoingFolio package will suit many photographers here looking for an easy way to get their portfolio site going.

    Actually, the software is included with the hosting package.

    And sorry for the confusion, the Folio package is part of FoingStyle:

    http://www.foing.com/FoingSTYLE/

    It includes an autoinstaller for 4images, Coppermine, and Gallery, which are all popular gallery scripts. The autoinstaller saves you the hassle of installing these scripts to the server by hand, all you have to do is log into the control panel, tell it where you want it installed, give it a user/password and it does the rest. We're trying to make it as easy as possible for people who are not web developers. Let me know if you guys want to know anything else.

    Also, if there's a gallery script you'd like to use that we aren't offering right now, let me know. I'm open to suggestion if there's a great one out there that I don't know about yet.
