I can tell you this - I have gotten quite a bit of work off my website. But then again, I market it quite heavily and so does my agent.

I myself looked into paying for such a hosting service, but at the end of the day; why should I pay them a fortune when I can do it better myself? Most of those sites do not agree with my quest for minimalism and putting the work first - they seem to be more into marekting themselves and their brand rather than me.

In fact, I hope one day to only present my work through my website and leaving the nuisance of sending and doing DVD reels all over the place. It's a nightmare.

I made my own site also. It cost me $7 a month for hosting and I control the content. I did this with Apples iWeb really easy to use.
