Webhosting recommendations

Tomorrow's World was a show on BBC TV about innovations and tech stuff and I thought a good name for our computing and tech section.

Webhosting recommendations

Hi
I'm currently displaying some paintings etc at the Wylye Valley Art Trail http://www.wvat.co.uk and people keep asking if I have a website - which I don't.

I know a few of you guys have your own websites so I wondered if you could recommend your host? I don't really know what I want to do with the site yet, probably just a small portfolio and contact details to start with but I might expand later to sell. So I probably want something cheap and cheerful for now with the option to upgrade later.

Cheers
Zoe

Brilliant, thanks. Just signed up and am already halfway to having my own website.

Hey! Do you think a WordPress Blog would also suffice for the beginning to upload pictures and portray some of the work? I know WordPress is more of a Blog, but it does have a 'Gallery' plugin that should be really good. Has anyone tried that yet? Or are you all hosting a professional website? I had a look at the British Business Online as well and their offer isn't half as bad. I also checked out some US webhosting offers to see the difference and compare them.
