You can have free online portfolio websites, such as DeviantArt or Shadow or Behanced. They give you your own page where you can post your photos and even sell them, each sale you get a percentage.

If you have the money, you can buy a domain (yearly fee) and a host (monthly fee) and do it that way. But then you would have to find a printer and work with them to sell prints. Then you have to deal with shipping as well. So it's a bit of work.

Vain said it exactly right when he said you can go to such websites that give you a free page to display your designs.

On my part, I'd go buy a domain since I can do what I want and design my website to showcase my designs in a way that visitors will come back again and again just to view. Who knows, maybe they'll purchase some.
