    Post What do you think Ripped or template?

    I was on a quest for an affordable VPS hosting and came across a website that looked really familiar. Now im leaving this up to the experts. Did someone rip someone or is this a template?

    http://www.rivalhosting.com

    and

    http://sitepenguin.com/

    Now I saw this design on the forum before but I just cannot recall where. If you find the design please post it here because I think that design had some controversy behind it

    Best Regards

    I would check to see how close the ips are and to look at the registar to see who is the registrant.

    I have seen quite a few hosting companies create multiple sites for some reason.

    I am pretty sure it is a template, because i have seen this on many other hosts in my venture. But it could have been a design then ripped and released.

    I am the CEO of SitePenguin Ltd. I purchased this design from the creator of it and paid $140.00 for everything. This is very frustrating.

    Was it purchased as 'unique' ? when & from whom ?
    Obviously you thought it was 'unique', but is that how it was sold to you ?

    Seems to me it's either a 'rip off/con' or 'non unique template'.

    If it a 'non unique template', it might annoy you, but it's not realy a problem,
    just live with it, at least for now.

    It was sold to me over a year ago as unique and I've already assigned a team of people to create a new design for me. You see we (at SitePenguin) believe in being unique from everyone else in everything.

    rivalhosting looks like its a ripped the logo is far from a designed logo it looks plain stupid... the way it is... I would say hands down that it is SitePenguin's template.

    That looks like a Zoodia design to me. If it was, it was bought unique.

    Maybe it is just me that thinks that is funny to place as your second sentence in the opening paragraph about your company, but, hey... at least they're debt free!

    Sorry for the ridicule, I sincerely just thought that was funny.
