I call it a work in progress as I feel I still have a lot of work to still, both on the design side and making it more complienent, but the other side of the business limits the time that I can spend on it, so, if you find errors or things I can change for the better please mention them, just giving the nod that things can be better and Will Be!

Firstly, there was 2 aims in mind with the design, 1st to be clean. The 2nd to make everything as simple as possible.

You're the judge on that


Last word, maybe this is my last web design, the hosting and development side is taking over more and more, design for me is now holding less appeal...

And now, without further ado, the url:

Studyhost.co.uk

I think you've achieved both goals. It's clean and simple. I like it a lot.

Hi Neil,

I think as Steve said you've achieved both the goals you have set out, noticed a small error with your domain search on the homepage (image included in link) but overall the site looks good not sure about building it around whmcs rather than integrating whmcs into the site (possibly use an unbranded licence? ) but otherwise it looks good, clean and simple

Thank you for the image grab, what browser are you using please? Is it chrome? When I first designed that bit I'm not sure if chrome was out, when I built the site, I tested with Firefox (2 I believe) IE6, IE7 and Safari on a mac

I think the only issue with using a "unbranded whmcs" is people doing google searches for one to hack.

I've spent about 2 secs thought on if it would look less professional or not, but didn't think it would not make too much difference, if people think different, well its pretty cheap to get rid of the branding....

cheers for your help.

It was taken with IE 8 (verrsion 8.0.0.6001.18813)

Not sure that would be a problem, we've always used unbranded with SSL and are yet to have an issue. though building the site around whmcs may cause one? not sure how it will effect your SEO rating though, WHMCS isnít known for its SEO abilities

The hacks idea come from searchlogs, where people have searched for:
"powered by whmcompletesolution"

I see no other reason for people to search for that term.

On SEO rating, well, less friendly on urls, as your not able to use directorys in the url, just file names.

Meta are the same on everypage, though that is I'm soon looking to fix.


Cheers on the IE8, I will download that and check it out.

Yeah that's good....but seems to be lacking a little something - maybe another color?

I like it as well You seem to be one of the only other ones who've used WHMCS in such a way too.
