    [Selling] Unique Webhosting Site Design

    Hello,

    I recently had this template done by The-Pixel for my company, and am in no need of it anymore. It comes with a sub-page, along with a homepage. You can feel free to remove the "The-Pixel" logo at the bottom.

    BID: 200$
    BIN: 300$

    (OFFERS WELCOME)

    [PSD's included]

    Why does the $20.00 per month VPS section there on the homepage look so much like Hawkhost.com's?

    The whole page has a very similar design, just some very small changes.

    The rest of the design looks fine. It's just that the VPS portion on the homepage looks A LOT like the one HawkHost.com has. The green button and the layout of that particular section seems to be exact.

    A similar concept was used, but nothing was stolen from the site.

    That's just first glance.

    +1 for not entirely 'unique.'

    We seen them ripping pieces of our design a while back. Here's the original with it clearly saying hawk host in portions: http://webdesign.calliarc.com/opticvps/

    Also even in that screen shot the text is stolen right off our site

    My side is very simple. I was hired by OpticVPS to redo a design he purchased. After that the design evolved into many forms and finally it is what you have seen. OpticVPS sent very specific e-mails requesting what he wants in a website. As a result, I did exactly as he stated. My overall goal from day one is to provide quality customer satisfaction.

    I have contacted OpticVPS directly in regards to this thread in hopes it can be handled professionally. Thank you for your time.

    The Nav bar and the live chat button + the email part up top are all designed by me and sold like a month ago to OpticVPS in a complete new design.

    Actually I didn't get in trouble at all . The design has been sold! Why would I be in trouble?

    Very specific? Like "I want an exact copy of hawk host"? Because without copying it I don't see how anyone could create an exact copy just from specific emails, right down to same images of servers, oversized quotation marks, exact same coloring, etc. Are you saying you never copied anything from hawk host to create this original design?

    I think if I paid you to do a redesign and you handed me hawk host's design I'd be pretty upset.
