    Please review our web hosting website

    Hi Friends,

    We have re-developed our website with a new design & theme. This is a web hosting related website. Please give your valuable reviews on it.
    Does the theme look cool?
    How precisely it represents our hosting theme?

    Here is the URL: Removed, clearly promotional only.

    Regards,
    Dirk Garcia

    Your fifth slide's title is "Manged Hosting". Mange is a common skin disease that afflicts horses I hope your hosting isn't all manged out!

    Anyway those images in your A.D.H.D. slideshow are horrible-- they flip by every 2.5 seconds or so and throw a million tiny little bits of detail out at me. Every time I try to digest these bits of detail the slide changes. To make them worse, every single one has the same design template, so I do a double-take each time it changes. I wonder, did that image just change? It looks the same. Oh, no, there are some differences, what are the differences? Hmm.. *FLIP* Oh crap, here's another one that looks the same. I can now see there's a different title. Ok what's this one telling me? Hosted packa--- *FLIP* woah, here's another one. Looks about the same... should I care about this one? Look at all these details. What do they mean-- *FLIP* argh!

    But... I don't really think you posted here in search of an actual review, you look to be spamming your URL. Hey more power to ya.

    listened to great NPR content, read Time Magazine on the new iPad app
    This guy Clayton Morris is insufferable. I now have to avoid the iPad just so my life doesn't overlap with his. Blech.

    This is definitely a spam post. A first timer with a (most likely; I haven’t clicked the link) finished website, and the link consists of the right keywords as the tags attached to this thread. I’d vote for immediate removal.

    LOL this is exactly what was going through my mind.

    I thought the image refreshed for some reason then it happened again... and I thought it was the same image in a slideshow. Then noticed the prices were changing. Then I closed the window. Pretty obnoxious.

    The icons at the very top of the main page for the Canadian flag, telephone, keys so customer can login and the 2GBHosting logo with a grey background. You should have them as blue as well. lt will look more professional. Something very easy to fix in photoshop or fireworks. I am currently using IE 6. Make sure they work with order browser as well.

    The rest looks good.

    A promotional post. well at least he tried to disguise it a little.

    No response from him to your hard work of dissecting the usability problems of his website - clearly promotional only.

    Yawn...

    I have to agree, especially with a username matching the site, and tags that indicate that its hosting service and not for suggestions.
    Since there have been so many replies to the actual point (and one wtf post from fumigator there lol); I'll instead close this thread and remove the link instead.
    PHP Code:
    header('HTTP/1.1 420 Enhance Your Calm'); 
    Been gone for a few months, and haven't programmed in that long of a time. Meh, I'll wing it ;)
