  Website Platforms

You've learned the basic structure of a typical portfolio website and looked at other designers’ sites. Now it’s time to think about your portfolio site. You may not have any projects yet, but you can still set up the navigation menu and start populating necessary information. But first, you need to decide where you want to host your website.

All modern website builders provide a drag & drop feature to create a custom website in no time. You can pretty much set up however you want but need to spend small monthly subscription fees. You should also buy a custom domain (like yourname.com instead of yourname.squarespace.com) to look more professional.

Recommended

  • Wix (Free without a custom domain)
  • SquareSpace ($)
  • A new page in your portfolio site

Not Recommended

  • Building it from scratch
