Could you please let me know who is happy with their web sites in terms of ease of updating them and everything else?

I've been with Artspan for years and have trouble updating my information. 

Is there anyone out there who could help me to make my site better? Ideas?

Thanks, in advance for feedback!

Susan

In reading this question, two possibilities come to mind: FASO, and someone on this sight, Daniel (dmaidman) has a friend who is evidently doing sites like that, or was at one time.

Here is another website I just came across, but I really don't know anything about it yet other than it looks like a very interesting possibility. http://fineartamerica.com

Consider a WordPress theme. You can pick your own domain name and host with Dreamhost. Once you have that set-up go to themeforest.com and check out the WordPress themes. I use InFocus. The WP themes are extremely SEO friendly and the back end is user-friendly for posting and updating. If you're unfamiliar with setting up a new site I have a few freelancers that I go to all the time that will assist you with getting the site online. Once it's up and going you can start to customize it yourself.

Hope this helps.

I read information on setting up web pages, and domain names, and free sites that may be of interest - it was posted on Fine Art View, entitled "Domain Names:  Why Artists Should Own One" by Moshe Mikanovsky.  It may be in line with this conversation.

FASO or FineArtsStudioOnline.com is the best out there.  I pay $28 a month and it`s easy to upload images into a template.    There are many, many benefits like a monthly entry into the Bold Brush online art competition, e-newsletter service, data statistics, email, tech support, etc...

www.artid.com is a good site very easy to post to.

I have two questions I was hoping someone could help me with.

One: How do you start a new topic,

Two: Does anyone know of any websites they would have listings for public art that artists could apply to.

that is quite an important question

today we have the most amazing tool to self-promote and sell our art : Internet !

we should use an easy tool and at the same time powerful enough to promote our paintings, target customers and sell 

I have spent many years changing from one platform to another, I made a post about the process and my own experience, I invite you to read it following this link:  http://www.art-and-supplies.com/sell-art-online.html  (sorry you have to copy-paste the link in your browser)

I know this is an old post but this information may be useful for anyone looking currently. The website below offers template websites for artists in a variety of colours and styles. The artist has full control over updating the site and no limit to the number of pictures or galleries. They're built in WordPress so a blog can also be included. Hosting and domain registration also provided so it's a good all-in-one package:
