Would love some feedback on what you like and don't like.

It has it's own user backend as well.

If you click on Client Login bit at the bottom and enter demo in both fields you can check that out :)

Some feedback please? :D

OUTTLOOK EXPRESS

typo in your client area :) pretty simple and clean design, quick question though: for a generic looking font why did you choose to use images for your nav instead of just CSSing it? I'd think that would be more efficient.

Cheers for that mate :)

I know I'm thinking about changing the navigation completely. It would probably be a lot nicer if it was CSS lol. Thanks for the kind words :)

It looks really good.
It has a really happy, visit this site feel...The one thing that I think kind of throws that off a little is green & green blue on the NOT JUST HOSTING, and then the gradient green right below it. In the case of the gradient, it looks bad. It kind of looks like the colors used in the fake-vomit.

You get over that after spending a couple minutes at the page.
The rest of the site is amazing.

Overall you get an "A" on this one.

Hahaha thanks pirateXcore for those great words :)

That banner is supposed to rotate but I haven't actually made any other banners...and yeah the colours are a bit crap, I'll see about changing that.

Thanks Bouzy210 as well :) They came from www.sxc.hu of course :)

hi,

The site is looking good.

I think you could improve the visuals on the top navigation.


Overall very nice

Ok so I've made some changes to the website, they are as follows:

I made the navigation menu pure CSS, I agree I was a bit lazy when I first did it and used horrible mouse commands, but there all gone now and everything is clean :)

I optimised all of the page for title tags and meta tags for my area and the terms I was after, I'm currently number one ranked for the terms, so it worked quite well!

I re-did some of the images, like the hosting banner and also the welcome pack, just really gave the colours a bit more vibrance where before they looked dull in my opinion. The hosting banner is actually a rotating banner script I just haven't got round to thinking up of some more banners for it. :)

Nothing really major, I still want to improve the user login system, but not sure how to, any ideas?

Yeah it does look a little cramped on 1024 x 768. I run 1440 x 900 so yeah it probably was design with higher resolution in store haha, that's bad practice ah well! Nothing bad, sounds good to me! :D

Oh yeah, I also added a 'Home' button onto the navigation bar, some people didn't like the fact there wasn't one.

Great site overall, especially the client area...its really really good.
But i noticed that when i log out of the client area, i cannot get to the home page from there unless i retype your web address.
Maybe a link to the home page by clicking on the logo would be a good idea...
