Very good looking site.

I'd say just optimize the front page for faster loading time, or put an image loader before that to get all of the images.

Also, check for small errors as there are a couple of small ones I saw (such as bold tags not around a whole word, missing a letter).

soulseek3r,

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but your download speed for your site just doesn't cut it. It's way to slow. I counted a good 30 seconds on my 56k dial-up and an average of 12-15 on our 265k link at work.

I'm a real stickler on this point because of all the sites that can't afford poor loading, its Webhosting sites. Look at it from a business perspective - what it this telling your customers?


Is it just me people or does anyone else see this as a major problem?

yes i get u George. I did look at it from a business perpspective view. That's why i'm working on the optimization. Do you think the image preloader would work. I mean people still have to wait for the images to load so would it work? I gotta optimize though.

Hello,

Nice SITE! A few suggestions or comments... Bottom right logo kinda had a hard time reading. I did like how you did your portfolio, very nice. Also, very nice rollovers at the top!

Overall I believe it is a nice and clean site with easy navigation and easy to know what you are offering.

If I had to change a few things it would be the top header font for the company name, and the bottom left corner.

I really like the site though! Can you also give me your views on my site? http://www.sonnarinternet.com I would love to hear your thoughts and suggestions also. Thanks!

i also agree that the blue is a little too overwhelming. i do like the graphics. also, your site is very easy to navigate, and that is a huge plus because i do not like spending more time than i should trying to find links and such.

you should pay attention to the actual writing. i don't mean to sound overly critical but i noticed a couple of misspelled words. i don't remember all of the mistakes i saw, but i do remember that you wrote, "as we fit" instead of "as we see fit" [i am assuming that was what you meant to say]. also, i think you stated that pornography is illegal. although i am not an expert in this field [haha] i don't believe pornography is illegal. perhaps you should say "web sites must not contain explicit adult material" or something to that effect if you want to address the pornography issue. i also noticed discrepancies of plurals...you didn't add an "s" to the verb when the noun was singular. i can't remember exactly where i saw this. some sentences were slightly redundant as well. and some words were used incorrectly.

it's really important to address and correct the grammar and spelling on your site. make sure they are impeccable as this is a business you are running and small things like this are taken into account by possible customers who view your site. you need to sound respectable and professional, and silly little misspelled words do not emit professionalism in the least.

anyway, i think i already made my point. lol. good luck with the site and with your business! =D

soulseek3r, you have a great design and layout, but...

it's just too hard to read. I feel like i'm really straining to read the text.

The blue, as has been mentioned, is pretty overwhelming,

Make sure the text is always well contrasted with the background. (check the images at the bottom w/ text over the gradient)

I'm not sure what your title graphic looked like initially, but the name still doesnt stand out enough. The name could be bigger and better contrasted.

What stood out to me when i first opened the page (in firefox) was the scroll bar right in the middle of the page. It seems kinda out of place, being this grey thing in the middle of all this blue. True, in IE it "fits" better, but i find not having the bar visible to be kind of awkward.

Perhaps it was part of the scroll bar effect, but the first menu looking thing i noticed was the list of hosting options, which seems very clickable, but isnt. The real nav could perhaps stand out a bit more.

It's a fantastic site, really is. It just needs a few tweaks before its "supurb."

good luck, - crazy

Wow...simply an amazing site... The orange got me when it loaded. The header reminds me of the fruit.

The content and purpose of the site is good. I like it. I must say the site is very professional...

Overall...nice use of graphics, easy navigation, useful content and nicely structured.

I see u have space for an ad...:)
