    May as well whack my Wordpress site into the mix, $35 template off AJ @ WPExplorer.com. Probably took 1/2 a day to get it looking like this excluding the mods to the stock photos Isocentric - Information Security Optimisation | Isocentric

      If you're going to go with Wordpress, make sure that you keep up to date and have some decent scanning plugins.

      My site got hacked regularly which in the end I found out was down to the PHPMyAdmin plugin which was massively out of date and had security holes in it. I now subscribe to a few email lists and have some plugins which look for vulnerabilities.

      My site has static pages and blog as well - didn't take long to set up and get going. I also use Google Apps for email etc. which took marginally longer to get going but not too long. I can't understand how people who work in IT can have their own domain name and website, yet still use a Hotmail account for their email.

        It Took me about a day to put together a new professional site for myself this week. I have had one for a few years but the hosting has been a bit random of late so I have designed to get it sorted. I used iWeb this time round. I found it very nice and clean. Personally If you are just putting up a site to say. "Hi this is me and what I do and some samples of my work" I would stay away from slick SQL and embedded code unless you actually do that stuff for a living. Only from the point of view that if you don't keep an eye on the site every day It could be weeks before you realise you have been owned or defaced.

        I have to say the Effective MI site is very slick. The sort of thing I guess many people will be trying to spend £1200 on in the future.

          WP is used for thousands of professional sites (including my own), I'd recommend it.

            Over the last few months I have seen an awful lot of attacks targeting older versions of Wordpress on a site I manage
            Something my web hosters have mentioned very recently.

              And that's fine as long as you have a hosting company that either allows you to update your own binaries or keeps them up to date for you. Otherwise everytime the next exploit is found, your site becomes a web bitch for every script kiddy with a need to serve driveby malware. If you do it for a living it's no problem to spend a few hours updating packages or reviewing code for x site vulnerabilites, but for most people it's not why they want site.

                Even GoDaddy does that so choosing a host which doesn't would seem pretty daft.
