The WordPress CMS (content Management System) is the ideal platform to build your photography website on. It is robust, flexible and incredibly easy to learn. Even inexperienced photographers can create a great looking website to showcase their work in no time at all.
WordPress is open source... meaning it's free to use AND there is an army of users constantly developing the platform and the associated Themes and Plugins.
Themes let you change the entire look and feel of your website anytime, while Plugins are used to add various features and functions to your site. Both are very easy to use with a little practice.
We've been publishing professional photography websites on WordPress for years, so we are pleased to offer our hosting customers access to our private library of Instant Photography Website templates. These have been hand built to showcase your work, meet your business objectives and generate income as quickly as possible!

If you've been shopping around for web hosting I'm sure you've been overwhelmed by some deals that almost sound too good to be true? The fact is, most of them are!
Most of those deals are being made by 'resellers' for one of the the big hosting companies. Their goal is to cram as many websites as possible on to their allocated space... all sharing the same resources & bandwidth.
So this is one situation where you'll usually get what you pay for.
The lower the price, the more websites are relying on the same resources... and sooner or later something has to give. Often it will simply be painfully slow access to your website, though it can also see the whole network crash without warning.
And over the years we've heard from far too many photographers, frustrated because the website they'd invested so much time, effort and money in had simply stopped working.
That's why we started offering our own web hosting packages specifically designed for photographers.
We've been helping photographers publish, promote and sell their photography online since 1998 through our stock library network, so we know photography and we know web development. This was a logical extension of our services.
Our unique packages focus on giving everything you need to design, develop and promote a professional & profitable photography website. We don't try to dazzle you with long lists of 'features' most people are never going to use. And we won't bore you with intricate end-user agreements & support protocols.
At PhotoWebHost, we've allocated a portion of the built-in redundancy on our existing network to hosting independent photography websites. We maintain 10 servers on 4 continents for our own purposes... and the hosting packages we're offering here use just a small portion of our total network resources.
This gives you affordable access to enterprise quality hardware and services, secure in the knowledge we are never going to risk overloading our network.
It also allows us to offset some of our costs, and the 'photography neighborhood' approach actually has significant SEO benefits for both of us.
Basically this is a win-win situation that you can take advantage of today.
If you're brand new, you simply select a domain name, select your preferred hosting package and we can get you up and running in no time at all.
If you have a domain already, or even an existing website, you can use that and get started even faster.
