    Not even sure where I would begin, please note this is just my opinion of what I would change.

    I would delete the whole site and start over with a wordpress theme like Fusion Theme Preview

    When I saw your site the first thing I noticed was, it looks so outdated. The globe spinning around just grabs attention and really put me off.

    Your order buttons are tiny! I can barely read the word order.

    There are no buy now buttons in the table? It's just hyperlinked text which takes you to a sale.

    Your graphics in your header are pixelated and need changing...

    I am going to stop there, not even going to go into lay out, fonts etc... In my opinion I would seriously consider at looking at themes like I posted above. Your site doesn't look professional and one of the biggest fears online is about giving over your credit card, having a professional site helps build trust in my eyes (Of course testing this is always the done thing).

      It needs some more work, to give it a more relaxing feel. But all and all, it's cool, functional and clear. Just work on the feel of it...

        Are you serious?

        Not to be too rough about it, but that site looks like it was designed some time in the late 80's. To say anything else is a nice thing to do, but won't actually be constructive IMO.

        From a consumer point of view, there is no way that I would purchase anything from your site as it currently stands.

        The website screams cheap and unprofessional and the header in particular looks very old, and it's very difficult to read your headline.

        If you're looking at doing a hosting site, you should really have a look at the top hosting providers and see what they do.

        Hostgator (to my mind) have a great site when it comes to sales, as do GoDaddy.

        In particular, while I don't particularly like dealing with their customer service, GoDaddy have a ripping site from a sales perspective.

        There's really only one thing that your customer has to do when they land on the GoDaddy site, and that's enter the domain name that they want.

        The site is clear, looks professional, has a definite goal and objective, and is laser targeted to that objective.

        The competition in your niche is pretty fierce, and if graphic design is not your forte then you may want to go the template monster or a similar site and try to find hosting company templates that you can drop into a WP site.

            I applaud your effort, at the same time as I agree with the criticism you've received thus far.

            If it were me, I would think carefully about what it is I want people to do here.

            Do you want them to sign up for a hosting plan? Do you want them to click on an ad in your side bar? Do you want them to use your search feature so you can get paid for a click? Do you want them to buy a turnkey website?

            Pick one, and focus on it. Get rid of everything else.

    Mate, it's a great start, and a lot better than my first website!

    The aim here wasn't to make out that your site should be as good as Hostgator or GoDaddy as they have millions of dollars to spend on their site.

    My point was twofold:

    1) If someone needs honest critique to make their business better then just being nice doesn't cut it. It could easily lead a novice business owner to think that they are kicking goals when they are in fact courting disaster.

    You can easily do more harm than damage!

    2) As butters said above, one of the hardest things to do these days is get someone to open up their wallet and get out their credit card.

    I want you to go to Amazon.com / Walmart.com / Hostgator.com / Godaddy.com / ebay.com and take a look at them.

    Take a look at the design of them, and how they are totally aimed (and tested) at giving their prospects the firm belief that they offer great value, have a great range, and most of all, are trustworthy and deserving of your money.

    Then, go back to your site.

    You have to ask yourself "Would I buy a product from this site?" and if the answer is anything other than "absolutely" then you have some work to do!

    As I said before though, good on you for getting started, but if this isn't a hobby site then I recommend buying a decent theme that you can customize, and work from there.

    Whatever you do, keep plugging away!

    I personally don't like how your site looks. It looks to me like a site from the 80's just like John has mentioned.

    I would hire someone to re-design it because it does not look too professional and many of your visitors will probably click away from it very fast.

    That's just my opinion for now.

    I agree with a lot of the criticism in the thread so far.

    The header image is quite annoying and off-putting, and the sight just looks "messy" overall.

    Simple and clean site designs are usually the best way to go.

    I would definitely switch to wordpress platform and use a more friendly theme. Your site looks like it was made in the 90's no offense...

    You need a complete remake. This is throwback to the 80s. The spinning globe makes me dizzy and want to, well throw up. That header is awful. No one uses tables with borders anymore.

    Hope you don't get offended and give up. If it's worth doing, it's worth doing right. There are tons of cheap web tempates available that look better than this or go to Warriors for Hire and get someone to whip up a nice looking site.
