    Does this have potential?


    Most of the links direct to the main, current layout. But the following link is how I am thinking this should look. The logo needs minor work (part of which being that Tech needs to be spelled out to Technologies) but anyhow, how does this look?

    https://www.bkriegtech.net/201/

    The site itself is done in html/php with CSS on the backend, and the menu is done in javascript.

    I think you have something backwards there...

    The font is too small for my eyes (and I have 20/20 vision, too). Never was a fan of serif fonts, either. Maybe I'm just picky.

    The design is a bit plain, and boring...yawn...zzzzzz....

    Looks good. Though, when I see the term "Blitzkrieg Computer Technologies" it makes me think you guys are a bunch of Nazis...

    yeah.. pretty dull and boring to me. Also it's quite annoying to click the security dialog everytime I go to another page to display the nonsecure items. Why is the homepage using https anyways?

    Ok let me rephrase my first post...

    Does this have potential? If not, what can be done to fix it? Don't just crap on the design.

    Yes, it has potential.

    I suggest more variation in fonts or colors.
    It is mostly just black and white.

    There is a lot of text together in the paragraphs, which makes it hard to keep reading. And the font is too small.

    The paragraphs also span far from left to right. Consider having two columns, so that the reader doesnt have to strain to read the paragraphs.

    There are numerous HTML and CSS errors which will affect the ability to find your site.

    Good Luck!

    Wayyyyyy too much text. You need to bullet key points and maybe add some pictures to "speak" instead of using so many words

    It looks a bit better with the update, but still pretty bland. The backend could use some work too.

    You don't quite seem to be grasping the idea behind CSS.

    Ditch the tables. They don't serve much of a purpose.

    Ditch deprecated font tags, i.e.:
    Code:
    <font face="verdana"  color="#3399FF" size="2"><b>$5.00 per month</b></font><br />
    There are a whole whack of errors with the markup, like the lot of <li> tags you left open.

    So out of curiousity how does fixing code help bring in customers? Most people aren't going to go verify CSS or HTML and base that on whether or not they're going to sign up with me.

    Every single site has potential. It's what you do with the site and how much dedication you have that determines it's success. Of course, large amounts of cash never go amiss

    An efficiently coded site can do better in the SEs than a poorly coded one. The result, more visitors.

    You asked for people to take a look at your site, and being a web developer, I always take a look at the code.

    While I always do look at the code, I always check to see if their HTML and CSS is valid also. Although that doesn't help any towards SEO.

    You really should have istened to Karmaxie's suggestions.
    The first thing I noticed is the margin is too small.
    The text is too close to the edge.
    And text should be in around 400px columns so it's easy to read.
    There should also be some picture on the homepage.
    There is no contact info on the home page- try the top right- where the white space is.
    The nav bar doesn't look perfect. There is some extra space at the end after the line. Why? And it looks like it should be the full width of the page.

    Your virtual servers page has a better margin- why not the whole site?
    But also on that page- too much text- not enough paragraphs and the spacing needs to be bigger between the columns.
    I would never read that text the way it is.

    Just my thoughts...
