For $60, I should be the customer, not the product.

Now that Smugmug has pretty much broken their site with the redesign, where should I host my baby pictures?

Smugmug used to be a reliable option for hosting my family photos and videos for my parents and other relatives to view. With the new redesign, though, it's not the same service I signed up for. Photos are slow to load, "most recently updated" dates on homepages have been discontinued, my homepage is completely blank when I'm browsing on certain computers, and users are now forced to organize by "folder" instead of by gallery or date.
I'm looking for a new place to host my photos. My considerations:
- Must allow photos/galleries to be password-protected.
- Allows organization that lets my parents tell instantly if I've posted a new photo.
- Costs no more than 2x the $60/year I'm currently paying.
- No ads.
- Must not require an account to view photos.
Additionally, I have zero interest in "social" features or "sharing". It would be nice if there were some way that I could make a seamless transition from Smugmug as well. Have you found a photo/video-sharing solution that works for you?
