thanks kanexpo

i was looking for a cursive style of font but i see your point now i look at it a bit more.

its all really difficult to please everyone with colours fonts etc hey?

I might have a play with the font there....

cheers

yes true, its nearly impossible to please everyone with fonts and colors :)

since it looks like a webhosting company, maybe add more features which would represent a web hosting company, such as a server maybe or similar.

or maybe even replace the horizon picture with something more " webhosting stuff"

to me it doesn't look like a hosting/design company on the first sight :)

but the overall design is nice, keep it up!

the reason for not having piccies of computer bits is every man and his dog has them i am aiming for a different look and feel ....it should be pretty easy to see we are a web design business though with the logo and the headings....

Beyond the horizon was the thought of a website taking peoples business beyond their horizon (not just local). I might have to explain that a bit more somehow on the site

cheers

The site looks pretty good... quite professional, and the colours go well together.

(Are you sure high gas prices are making people shop online more? It's still cheaper for me to drive to a local store than it is to pay for shipping most of the time...)

Thanks desertland

i am in rural Queensland Australia and the petrol prices have gone from about 85 cents a litre to $1.45/litre in the last year....there are loads of people here who don't come into town as much as they used to...I know that they are now using the net to find products and services in the local area before they go into town...I just want to say that if
a business doesn't have a website they could be losing out to their competitors who do...

A marketing strategy that plays on the hip pocket is usually pretty good I think...lol

thanks for your comments on the site...i will post more when more pages are developed...

cheers

Everyone seems to love the colors, so I just felt it necessary to let you know...with colors that dark, you're bound to experience some customers who will see that as more of a dark purple, and some that see more of a deep blue...dependent on monitor & independent color settings.

hi there....

I have two monitors ..one a crt and the other a tft and the site does display way different in both....but i like the colours in both...I don't think its a big issue for me that it has to display exactly one colour as long as it looks ok ....

thanks for your thoughts on that though...much appreciated

Cheers

PermTech,

The site looks very nice to me - the only thing I would suggest changing would be the rounded top image to your body. With the header cutting straight across like that, the body shouldn't have the image on the top - it should come right up to the header and let the table define its shape.

That's what I think anyway. Give it a try - I think you might really like it.

I did have it like that at the beginning and it sort of looked funny - so i went with the seperate thing...

BTW there are no tables in the site....lol

Thanks for your input ....

Oh, cool then. Too bad I didn't get to see the original. I wasn't looking at the code when I mentioned tables, I just ASSuMEd, I'm no good with straight code - I am dependent on Dreamweaver. :)
