I purchased and read The Business of Real Estate Photography and Photography for Real Estate books. I would like to make a website with a slideshow of my portfolio on my home page.
Do you know any web hosting companies that automatically provide both HTML5 and Flash format for slideshows (for Apple, Windows, and Android devices)?
I would like to make a website that is an easy DIY type of website. Also, I’m looking a very low priced web hosting company. I live in the US.

These all have strong features to build your real estate business around. Here is an article on PetaPixel.com about a year ago the reviews many of these services in detail.
I’ve had a site at Squarespace for many years and love it! They are always on the leading edge of design and innovation.
What is your favorite portfolio hosting site?
