    ^^ Same as above. Do you have the .PSD or do we have to remake and remodel from scratch

    Just fooling around... since you said you're different than other hosting companies... Anyway, something to get you started. I don't know the fonts names you have used, so consider some of them temporary.

    Does design improvement include logo change?

    class?! thanks for respecting the time i took to do this, really. I was only following your suggestion to make it lighter.

    how do you expect to get what you want with comments like this?

    TBH he asked for a re-design but you went a bit extreme on it, and i can see what he is meaning.

    Sorry, i don't think he was meaning to be rude to you but when you post a design, you should expect feedback, negative or positive.

    Thats life mate.

    It was not meant to be rude im just being honest, it looks like it was done quickly, example look at the live support button i previously had, and look at yours, do you feel your button is superior to the previous one, and do you feel your layout gives off a good vibe if any? (im not going to answer that, you tell us)

    You have won several contests I've previously posted, and I've done the same thing with your competitors, suck it up and keep moving.

    The logos, are nice. I like the lightened live support button, it just looks alittle empty. the footer looks ok as a lighter grey.


    Try changing the domain availability button, i dont like it too much. and possibly the header (the entire thing)..

    save this version.
