Re: kudos for SmugMug

[Some ISPs cost] less than Smugmug or Flickr Pro [so] why do people use those services?

Because Smugmug and the like are insanely easier and hassle free. I have built websites in the past, know how to configure and troubleshoot my own DNS and can even code some PHP. However, if I'm going for a photography-based site, I'd rather lay down the money for Smugmug than bother with building and maintaining my own hosting.

Thanks for the opinion.

I suppose if you want to sell photos (does anybody make significant revenue doing that on the web?) SmugMug is useful and appropriate. E.g. they handle credit card transactions.
