    Looking for feedback on the design below. Obviously a few technical errors I am aware of...

    Hosting page is pretty sexy, if you play around with billing cycle etc.

    Main thought was to keep the site really clean.Unlike the current site which I find ugly as shit

    Helloworld, first couple of thoughts.

    In general looks nice, and I like WHMCS.

    The logo and the brand name Media Fortress does not seems to have any relevance to the domain name, which may puzzle some people?

    On every other page there is a red stripe under the menu but not on the home page. That to me seems like a big visual difference from one page to the next. But that is probably picky of me.

    I can't see any hosting Terms and Conditions or SLA's so people don't know what kind of support they will get. This to me seems like a big blocker for getting signups.

    People will be really interested in the quality, and how you intend to deliver that quality.

    Cheers mate. Brand is irrelevant. It's a media company, but I get what you're saying.

    Good point with the stripe.

    T&c, slas etc will be uploaded later rather than sooner, this is just a testing site.

    When looking at the website, what comes to mind;

    • Capitalising the menu items
    • Space the domain registration from the footer and center it
    • Space the 'See our pricing' from the text and title
    • Allign the logo (if you're keeping media fortress) with the menu items
    • Increase font size for the Copyright in footer
    • 'Back to top of page' button on pricing page - As after I scrolled I would want to return to the sign up options
    • Remove the picture of MacBook air? Don't see relevance & Include company names with websites you've created
    • Contact us page, put a space between the envelope sprite and the writing

    They are just ideas, not speaking from experience though.

    Are you really at 572 Flinders street? You're next door to my work. Literally behind it.

    ok, at first glance i never like a domain name with a different logo underneath it.

    the logo and menu position are fine but the above the fold makes me bounce as the 3d nuts are sooooo old hat.

    by the way the site breaks in chrome, the register domain has slipped down and i can't test it.

    i can see the layout structure would work but i'd put the register above the nuts not below the fold.
