Hello everyone! I have a bunch of websites I build myself and now I need to create a portfolio website to show my work.

Hello everyone! I have a bunch of websites I build myself and now I need to create a portfolio website to show my work. Does anybody knows how it actually works? How can I upload websites on a website? Can I use wordpress for that? Thank you.

The easiest way to do it would to be create a static portfolio website with images of the websites you have created which are linked to the live websites.

For example if I was going to make a web development portfolio website I would,

Make a Front page saying hey this is my website development company.. if you would like to see some examples of my work click here..., which would then lead them to a static page with small previews of all the websites I have made then when a user clicks on the small preview I would have another static page with all the information about the website I have created including a full preview of the website, the technologies used in creating this website and who was the website created for.. then I would place a link somewhere on the page saying "view live website" which then links them to the website you have created.

I hope this helps.

Check out hosting solutions like HostGator (for shared hosting) or DigitalOcean (for a virtual private server), and do some research on how to host a website online. I guarantee you will find your answers with a little persistence.
