    BTW according to Edatarack home page, they're hosting on an ancient 900 MHz Celeron with a puny 256 MB of RAM. Heck, my 2 year old notebook is more powerful than their server!

    How can their server run efficiently when their reseller plan provides ability to create up to 100 domains on a server with 256 MB RAM?

    If you look in the "About Us" section, they claim they have been in business since 1998. *raises an eyebrow*

    While design theft is a problem, and it does appear to be the case here, domain registration date does not prove anything. It cannot tell us when particular design was posted. You'd have to go to the design company for proof.

    Am not saying this is the case in this instance, but some design companies sell their designs to more than one company. And too, a number of sites uses templates that are created by a third party. It is fairly common to see sites that have the same layout, buttons, etc because they had the same template or the same designer. And I seem to recall an instance sometime in the last year where a web designer was ripping designs from other sites.
