We got a new Layout ! Do send us a FeedBack telling what you like in this one ..
Coight don't be se cheesy about this, they are seeking feedback as well on new layout..So please do send feedback to them so if they want to change they can change...

Do suggest some alternate sites, so that they can lift design from them...in case

It does look very similar, it has the same tables etc. Looks like they didn't try very hard to disguise what they had done. Have you contacted them about it?

Actually, they even made the design look worse, by customising it a bit. It looks awful on my Opera 7.51.

The only thing they did better was replace the outdated "seasons greetings" with a scheduled downtime notice

I suggest that you contact them right away and ask them to remove it, other incidents like this happened and people like you got their design stolen but they forced the other party to chnage it.

Its a scam, have you tried to contact them ? I don't think there is much to do if they are not willing to take it down.

Maybe it's possible to go to court or to there host !

Check out this article in their forum -

Quote:
What makes a GOOD hosting company?
Design - Design is one of the most important things with a webhosting company. Your website acts much like a car salesman - it is what is selling the product to the customer. Therefore, you should aim to make your website as appealing as possible, not too cluttered, and should also provide an easy sense of navigation.
Guess they forgot to add the part about just ripping someone else's design.
