    You can ignore the content and stuff, I just want to know if the site is good. Thanks!

    Forget your layout. Forget changing the sun into a moon. Forget the colors, the fonts, all of that.

    I see this:
    Unlimited Bandwidth
    And that's enough for me to run screaming.

    There is no such thing as unlimited bandwidth.
    It does not exist.
    A finite amount of bandwidth allocated per second x 60 seconds in a minute x 60 minutes in an hour x 24 hours in a day x no more than 31 days in a month = a finite number.
    An infinite number can never be derived from arithmetic operations associated with finite numbers.

    The fact that I put that entire passage in bold and red should tell you something. Unfortunately, even good hosts are starting to use this, and it's only because we as hosting customers are so stupid that we got sucked in when the shady hosts offered it. If we had just done some simple mathematics back in 2000-2001-2002 when the scum hosts started going down this road and shutting down sites for "CPU overload" back in the day, we wouldn't be here.

    So yeah...please state the bandwidth that you'll actually allow, or even if you use the word "unmetered" with a clear explanation of the terms associated with it, that would be acceptable. But this "unlimited" BS with hosts has to stop.

    Didn't I tell you to ignore the frickin' content?
    I'm one of the first people to tell you it's impossible, you know that! I bash EIG hosts on a daily basis for saying unlimited. I used it because I don't want people to have to worry about how much they use... would you rather I give them 999999999GB of bandwidth? No, because that looks fugly.

    Please, just ctirique the site looks and design and stuff..
    Thanks!

    You can tell me to ignore the content until you're blue in the face and I won't do it. The content is part and parcel of the design...whether you choose to acknowledge that or not is your business.

    But if you want a platitude, here you go...it looks nice and purdy. It''s completely meaningless, but it's what you want to hear, so enjoy your compliment and remain in your bubble.

    Dude, please, just review the website how it looks.
    It's not helpful to me if you don't like what it says. If you don't want to order it then don't, nobody even asked you to. It's not like I'm shoving it down your throat. Just down your (forum) thread.

    FYI, about the "unlimited" bandwdith: I get unlimited bandwidth from my server provider so I can pass that on to the customer. It's "unlimited" to a reasonable extend to the max that the viewer's internet connections work. They obviously can't run a download mirror off it, but I'm going for the high-end market here, and that includes small business owners who simply want a reliable and fast website hosting plan for their website, without the ********.

    And I don't want them to have to worry about the bandwidth usage. As long as their site fits on the disk space and complies with the terms of service and they don't abuse the server I don't care if they use 7MB or 70GB of bandwidth. Besides, I'm reasonably protected by the fact that the disk space is not so huge, so it's not something I'm worried about.

    This is where I get the servers: https://www.digitalocean.com/

    Hey Shove, I think you need a better logo, and I think it would be nice to add a graphic to some of the pages like the About and Home, the pages feel too plain, but maybe that is just me. I like how your Features page looks with the icons and headings and such. The overall colors work well together.

    Another thing, I think the majority of people want to see and expect to see "unlimited" from a potential hosting company even if it isn't 100% possible. So it seems like the norm to add that to your site.

    Thanks for the review Fireproofgfx! I will certainly add sort of graphics(s) to the About page and the Plans and Pricing page!

    PS: Do you think a real logo would benefit it? Because I know somebody who makes great logos
