    A few revisions - Plese Review


    I've made a few revisions to the site, both content, product and design.

    Pick one of the above mentioned aspects, or all three if you feel generous! Just be nice

    Overall not bad, but for sales I think you missed the mark.

    1. If your going to offer hosting, a phone number on your main page is a must.
    2. Your page has a little too much white space.
    3. From a 404 error page none of your navigation works.
    4. Contact us does not have a physical address.
    5. It would help if you had a sign up now button on your hosting plans, "on the main page".
    6. You have an canonicalization issue.
    7. Keywords look stuffed.
    8. No toll free number for tech support or sales?
    9. From inside your cart, how do I get back to the root of the site? Portal home takes you to a members page.

    On your TnC and User Policy

    "you will be responsible for the $50 chargeback fee". I get charged a $25 fee for chargebacks and I thought that was high.

    "If you use any bandwidth or storage space in excess of the agreed upon number of megabytes per month, you agree to pay the associated additional charges."
    And that fee would be?

    "Copyright or trademark infringement:"
    Like the images at the bottom of your site?

    "Bright Fuse Hosting accounts operate on shared resources."
    Even your dedicated server plans?

    Wanted to point this out... That's not copyright infringement. Go to any major hosting provider, aplus.net... rackspace... hostmysite.com... anything, everyone uses that. Gives the user a feel for what the company uses.

    Rackspace: I could not find any.

    Hostmysite.com: They are a Microsoft gold partner and that is the logo they display.

    aplus.net: is also a Microsoft gold partner and they display that logo.

    Ipower: shows none.

    hostgator: does show the windows logo but they are also a windows partner.

    None of these site displays the "windows" logo. But if this does not pertain to you then forget about it as you have the other things to work on.

    I was just trying to help you out.

    Obviously you weren't looking. Aplus.net is right above their bottom nav, powered by parallels, mysql, etc... It's not illegal to advertise a company on your website. If it were, I'd have been sued, and thousands of companies wouldn't do it.

    im looking at the site in Safari and personally i think its lacking a lot. like what imkzru said your site is certainly lacking in the marketing area and seems to have missed the point.

    my comments:

    1) No Phone number - ultimately your driving business to making that call or to setup on line.

    2) Pictures - The site seems very bland and dated. the logo you have is good. has a nice shadow and looks clean and modern but the rest of the site is very bland and dated.

    3) Too much white space

    4) the 3 boxes (Shared hosting / dedicated server / reseller hosting) do not look right in safari. didnt bother testing in other browsers but the titles are above the top of the box and the buttons / images at the bottom are outside the box

    5) Fonts


    but from these the Marketing is your biggest problem.

    Personally if i came through to the site looking to host a website i would leave. although probably very fickle my interpretations is that if the hosting company cannot afford / produce a decent website that reflects quality and up to date chances are the kit and service they provide will match and will not meet expectations.

    best of luck

    From a developer perspective:

    BAD

    1) your code is non-standard (fails as HTML 4.01 Transitional as you defined it).
    2) use of deprecated tags such as <font>, and attributes such as bgcolor="".
    3) using inline styles (style="").
    4) using &nbsp; for padding instead of CSS.

    GOOD

    1) mostly unobtrusive JavaScript (no inline event handling from what I saw)
    2) moderately semantic, which is better than most. Most developers don't know how to use basic HTML tags, or moreover even care about the semantic Web.
