    Who is your target market? In the US the word slum is probably not a wise choice for the name of your company. If I saw that on Google I'd just skip right over and go to the next host.

    Overall your page is pretty good, but there are a few mistakes (assuming American English):

    Band Width = Bandwidth
    Upto = up to
    Cpanel = cPanel
    Whm = WHM

    It is very image-heavy, I'd like to see most of it converted to text (will also help with SEO).

    thanks alot It's very difficult to change the name now. Main target market is day to day customer in US,Canada & U.K

    Other host like Hostgator and many are using same spellings. May be it's web hosting language.

    About the images you are right, website is really loaded with images.
    i will try to reduce the number of images.

    Thanks alot for your comments & suggestions, this will really help me to improve.

    also take a look at client portal:

    this is client portal https://myportal.slumhost.com

    demo details:

    user name: demo@slumhost.com

    password: 123456


    Thanks Again

    As MikeJohnson said, you may wish to change the name of your business - "slum" doesn't exactly imply quality or reliability

    The portal looks pretty good to me. I personally don't really care for the dashed border around the main container, but other then that I like the integration

    I have to be brutally honest, I think naming your company SlumHost is going to hurt you in the American market.

    Like slumhost.com, it will NEVER fly in the US.

    I do like your website though.

    I totally agree with Mike that the site is loaded with images. Its better to convert them into contents for SEO.

    Overall I like the design of the site. I agree with everyone else on the opinion of the name of the company though. Slum just doesn't sound to apealing of a name for a hosting company. I will give it to you though its very unique but not in a way that would attract business. Good luck with your company though. The hosting market is very competitive, and can be very stressful at times.

    Good luck with everything, I hope your business prospers in the future.

    thank you very much for your kind opinion. Seriously i could not find any other name. But lets see what happens. Right now i'm getting very good response. i just started this company and i have two clients with Annual term plan

    Did the clients find you because of your name or in spite of your name? If the name intrigued them, then it works. If they signed up with you not caring about the name, then I think it might be holding you back. In any event, best of luck in the future. I am trying to build a business too.
