    www.smugmug.com

    www.pbase.com

    Those are the more professional photo hosting sites. Flickr is popular too, but I wouldn't call it the best place to showcase your work.

    sir any tip on a good domain to use/purchase? Coz i saw some advertized domains for sale via ebay...i don't know if they're reliable.But right now i'm using photobucket and fotki.com for basic uploading of my photos,that soon will be cluttered for sure due to limited capacity.
    anyways ,thanks for the help and tips.

    alternatively, you can opt to set up your own domain (ie. www.yourname.com).

    1) Get a webhosting plan (which includes your domain name, hosting services)
    2) Select a website interface (ie. wordpress, mambo etc) which you want to install.
    3) Download an FTP program
    4) Upload your desired backbone website interface of the website via FTP
    5) Wait for the DNS to propogate and within 24-48 hours, your domain name should be ready.

    You can incoporate Flickr with wordpress for an easy view of your uploaded pictures.

    Sounds kinda complicated but in a day or 2 of self-learning of simple PHP, you should have no problem setting up your personalized website.

    check out dreamhost.com or surpasshosting.com for competitive webhosting rates.
