    For once I must admit this is a pretty good rip. You can tell that effort was put into changing the graphics at the very least. I probably wouldn't call this a complete rip but it does have some very obvious resemblances.

    This has been posted before if I recall correctly. And yes it is ripped, right down to the testimonials.

    I wonder if the testimonials are real people? http://www.syfonic.com/why_us.html

    Edit: I would be more likely to host with syfonic just because of this: http://rawrgv.com/?v=annoyingju.jpg lol

    The old people picture is a nice touch though. It's getting rather boring with all these pretty-face girls on web hosts' websites.

    I actually signed up with them, back in early July for S&G's, and to my surprise, within the first day - it was down & out for hours(They are resellers of some company - I can't remember the companies name though).

    But you know that web hosting companies are ran and supported by groups of hot young women. Sheesh, you're a bit sexist my friend!


    On a serious note, they should be ran that way. I'd opt in for a data center tour on a regular basis.

    They are over 1500 miles away from me, perhaps if they can guarantee a data center full of hotness (not from server hardware either! ) Then I would consider it worth the trip.

    Sureeeee, we all know you have another tab open with http://images.google.com/images?hl=e...-8&sa=N&tab=wi

    Actually, when you search for their picture via those keywords - they don't show up. I just found their pictures via twitter...

    Nice rip? Well you must be kidding. That is a kind of the forbidden actions and I suppose that couldn't be nice in any case

    Actually, I'd call it a bad rip. A "good" rip would be a smart rip, and that's one that can't be spotted. But then you'd wonder, why even rip in the first place, if it all ends up being an original work anyway? So, the only rip that makes some sort of sense, is a bad one.
