    I don't like the red and black text either, can you go for something a little more modern looking?

    nice to see you all just flame it

    how about giving a reason instead of a 4 words reply stating the site is not to your liking

    Grow up and write something worth me reading

    Im looking for advice not idiotic comments

    - Advice.
    Please use a darker background colour.. one thats easy on the eyes.. I've got good eye sight but this made my eye twitch like hell. .. and as for the titles/headers.. the stroke/glow isnt attractive at alll.

    Not being idiotic here, but that design is aweful. My CONSTRUCTIVE advice is, start again. I recommend if it's too hard to design one yourself, buy a template.

    Take my advice on board.

    I noticed that some of your graphic titles have a red outline
    with a blue outline added to that. Placing those two colors
    next to each other as outlines causes people's eyes to go buggy.

    Well i dont understand its clean i know colors are bright that i could change i guess

    but over all layout is fine just modification of the colors and links and things.

    and i looked at alot of free hosting sites alot of them arnt any better if not worse with standard un edited templates

    i can ezy download a theme forest layout for free or template monster template

    but i didnt i dont see wat diff it would make if i did anyway more graphics more distractions and less clicks on the money links

    i did think a bout it

    also make 17$ in template sales so far on less then 2000 hits

    Have you asked yourself WHY we all flame it?

    It's horrible!

    The red/blue glow on letters is literally causing a burning sensation in my eyes. Then there's a white background used in conjunction with that blur.

    Whole layout is completely random and reminds me of sites in 1995.

    Then there's the content. I spent over 1 minute trying to figure out what exactly you are selling. Is it webhost + themes? No clue. It should be CLEAR what purpose of the site is.

    I want to be supportive and say start over. I cant be, I really cant.
    Making websites is definitely not your strong point. Buy it from a freelancer, focus on advertising it instead.

    Please don't take it the wrong way, I'm not trying to insult you, but that site is really THAT bad.

    ok gianni

    i get what your saying

    thats what im struggling with conveying the concept of what the site does

    yes its free hosting and yes i provide templates

    but i also have a life out side the net to i dont have all the time in the world to sort it

    also i ran plenty of good sites mostly warez tho


    it can be hard to do sometimes

    You should try adsense, when the text blinds visitors they may accidentally click on your ads while trying to get off the page ASAP.

    thats the type of website that i would avoid based on the design alone. sorry to be so critical, but if you are not a designer or can;t hire a designer then at least use some template that looks right

    I am not judging you or your actions. No need to defend yourself.

    You asked for feedback of your site and I gave it. That's all. :)


    Few guidelines you should follow when making a site:
    - think about what site is going to do, what is it going to be about. Design themes around that. There are many beautiful designs already pre-made that fit the niche, apply one of those.

    - If you do insist to make your own design, keep the color tones in same color family.
    Lively colors together, dark colors together, lifeless colors together. Make them blend and fit together nicely. Colors you used are SCREAMING out. That is not something visitors want to see.

    You're mixing them all up.

    - make sure you convey a CLEAR message to your visitors to why this site exists and how it can benefit them. All I see there is a salespage for 1c hosting and some themes for which I know you'll get paid for. Why would I spend money on either of them? You gave me no reasons. Marketing is all about social engineering. You need to see what your visitor wants, provide that and reassure him he is making the right choice by purchasing from you (even if as an affiliate).

    - If your goal is to sell themes as affiliate there then style sites in a similar fashion with similar color tones. This way visitor won't feel that shock from switching sites as we do not.

    - add some "DISCOUNT!! ONLY XY for limited amount of time" catchphrases on the site, possibly with banners and other textures. People LOOOVE to save money, even when they spend them.

    Here, this is one design I like personally. I am copying it's layout for one of my service sites.
    http://www.giganews.com/

    It is well textured, colors blend in nicely, it looks very professional and owners are giving me at least 20+ reasons to why I should purchase their stuff.

    A++ site imo.



    To conclude, if you have questions, don't know how to do something or you're just simply stuck, feel free to ask! That is why we are here for.
    Hope I helped a bit :)

    We all have lives outside of our online businesses, but if you want to have a successful business it requires time and patience, possibly sacrificing something in your personal life until you get your sites squared away.

    If anything your doing cannot understand that concept, it's not worth doing or spending time on, because it does not have your ultimate interest in mind.

    If what your doing was so easy and not time consuming, EVERYONE would be doing it. I say this all the time, there's 24 hours in a day, how many of them are you using to perfect your business? 2 Hours? 4 Hours? meanwhile your competitor who is way hungry is putting in 12-16 some 23.

    You have a good business model, put some time in and you will reap the benefits, and be able to spend more time on NON BUSINESS related functions. :D

    @gianni

    I agree about the site you linked too. Love the way the header graphics grab a users attention.

    BTW thanks for giving me some ideas to work with. :)
