    Please review host-tastic

    Just got done with my web hosting site and I'm pretty pleased with it. I'd like to get some good reviews on it and see if any changes need to be made.

    So here it is www.host-tastic.com

    To be honest the pricing looks like Train Yard Software reseller pricing...

    Anyways, when I go to ahosting site I'm not looking for amazing eye-catchy design, just something nice and a bit fresh. No reason, but honestly the sites with solid or semi-decent designs which appeal to the customer aspect, showing you care, individuality, etc are key.

    Your site doesn't have any of these.

    There isn't a lot WRONG with it, there just needs to be something that shines, even if it's the photography.

    That said the nav buttons are a touch big, the design is a bit bland and the actual info flow needs a touch of work.

    I think with a solid rethink and a good 10 hours work you could have a kicking little site.

    Remember to say why your host is better than the rest (stress only one point here, people know you aren't the biggest or the best at anything, they just need something to hang onto).

    Here is my review of it:

    Also, the top logo needs to be reduced in width so it won't have a horizontal scroll bar.

    The first impression, and one of the most important to me, when I check out a hosting site is how fast it loads - and yours is not fast (that is to say it is slow). Makes me think that if you host my site it will load slow also.

    Other than that I like it - clean, well organized, etc.

    It's also down for me. Your xwebdesigner.com site is also down. You need to look into this...

    Access a problem

    I was unable to access the site as well.

    It seems you have a serious chronic problem here. I will try again periodically over the next few days. Hope you get it sorted out soon.

    Sorry but I'm giving up on this one. It appears your site is gone and so is the domain that that hosts your DNS. Time to find a new host I would say.
