    Question New hosting business

    Hi, I started a webhosting business about 1 year ago, stopped for a little bit, got a new server, then started again. I just finished the site for it. I'd like people to tell me what they think. The only thing i yet have to do is make the support page. Please check it out and tell me if it looks good. Thanks in advance

    The url is :

    Before I comment on your site, I'd like to know how you're able to offer unlimited bandwidth and space to your customers?

    I guess I'll comment on the design anyways.

    For starters, it's a rip of http://www.4dwebhosting.com

    My suggestion: You might want to re-design it.

    It is extremely evident that your ripped it, because on some of the pages it says Copyright 1997 - 2002 (even though you started a year ago) and on other pages it says Copyright 2001 - 2002.

    Its funny that people are so eager to show off their site in this review section when its ripped. You'd imagine they'd want to keep it quiet...

    Yeah its pretty stupid if they just did a search on this board(where they requested the review) they would have found numerous posts about 4d Web Hosting. They probably even found my site from this forum.

    What ever drove you to ripping his site in the first place?

    And then you wanted US to critique it......ARE YOU INSANE MAN.

    Nice appology though. That should go someway to calling off the wolves...NOT.

    Your new site looks good though.

    no need to thank me, you have no reason to. I started this whole thing. Believe it or not, i'm not too bad at graphics and design, but my imagination for actually creating the structure of a site is terrible. I was just being retarded by posting it on web reviews. I shouldn't have even released it to the public until i was done with my own design. I was just desperate I guess, I don't have a reason why i put it on the site reviews though. And I was looking at the forum on 2checkout (that's what I use) and I saw the site there, and loved it.

    hey Vsector

    perhaps you should put some (c) copyright symbols flying around your old site like the new design for your ripped site has now...

    Well..Congratulations are in order to everybody. That is the first site ripping I have seen here on WHT where the ripper has not been tarred and feathered. Well done to everybody for your restraint. And well done to the ripper for being so damn polite about the whole thing. And a special congratulations goes to the ripped for not threatening all sorts of legal nasties. Very humbling experience all round. Thumbs UP.

    Now that the theft has been acknowledged, it is very low class to continue using it. You may not have been "tarred & feathered" but you will surely be branded -- and not in a nice way -- the longer you continue to use.

    Why the true owner has not requested immediately removal, I don't know. I do know the longer it stays up, the easier it will be to remember "cirkuit.com" as a site to stay away from.

    And ditch the "Unlimited", for your own sake. My God man, you don't even have a TOS or AUP and I've got a 40GB hard drive I've been looking to backup somewhere. On second thought, forget that. I'll be right over to signup!

    I do not believe this scumbag for one minute.

    He says hes good at graphic design, when he cant even get his colours right, look at the images on the ripped site, he has saved them, decompressed the colour format, edited them, and compressed them again giving a different colour. He didnt even take 5 minutes to go round the page and make sure that the information was correct! Bloody copyrighted from 1997, haha.

    I do not care for his sort of buttkissing appology, he was planning to keep that layout, and he and everyone else here knows it.

    I do not believe he made the new design from scratch either, esp the button @ the bottom. lol... and that new design quite frankly sucks, and I laugh @ 'Yes - If it's any form of consolation Vsector - Its a nice site Anchovy might be a ripper but he has good taste'.

    Just looking @ 'it was wrong and very unprofessional', what the hell? lol, the way you've acted, I wouldnt continue in the hosting business, you are in NO WAY professional & from what ive read so far from you, I very much doubt that you can look after your customers, let alone a server. Oh, and instead of your 'it was wrong' crap, try to think of it as illegal, because thats what it is. Heh, I know I wouldnt like a CRIMINAL looking after my files, lol, he'd probably steal it if it had any value.

    Thats more like it WHT 'ers Don't let him get away...hanging is too good for folks like that. I am pleased you have all come through and shown your true spirit. It was all looking a bit lame before this onslaught. Keep it up. Great Job.

    Yes, MC. I saw that, somehow, I dont know why, but this little snotbag managed to get everyone to be nice to him after his lies, heffer****, and sad, corny appolgies. I posted what I did, because thats what he deserves, im not being spiteful, he is a criminal, and not only is he a criminal, but he comes here, and steals our work, then rubs our noses in it!

    Most people here who own a hosting company spend 24/7 thinking and working with there business (including me), and this little ****e comes along, and goes and ****s on it. I really cant believe people have mentioned the word 'nice' when reguarding him, no matter what it is. He is a little, unprofessional, dryminded shiester, he is no webhost, he is nothing but a criminal, and we could do without him on these boards.
