Musings on a personal website


I have yet to find the perfect provider of personal internet presence. A lot of providers do a lot of good things, like cheap domains, or a good service or two, but I haven't seen or heard of any that really give individuals all the possibilities that I think they'd want in a website.

Here's a list of what I think would make a great personal website, and if someone would offer this together with a good address, like http://ketil.froyn.name/, at a decent price, they would probably get my money:

1) Simple way to make a website, with templates/styles
2) Simple way to make and maintain a BLOG, also with templates/styles
3) Templates for CV
4) Easy way to upload pictures display photo-albums, with optional access control
5) Contact maintenance, where the owner can add contacts, and the contacts can update their own information.
6) Email with webmail and pop/imap and smtp access

Sounds too good to be true, eh? I think all these exist, but not in a single package. I came up with this list in about 5 minutes, so there are probably other things one could add.

Any takers out there?
