Some of my thoughts on your company's online presence:

1. Its a terrible idea to have 3rd party advertising displayed, especially at the top of the page and in a way that is not matching the overall design. It sends a message to potential customers that your company isn't financially stable enough to trust. I would remove the all the ads, including AdSense and AdBrite, as well as affiliate links - it really hurts you more than benefits.

2. I don't like the dark design - information is poorly visible. Sometimes it also feels like templates and typography doesn't match each other.

Overall, it seems like there were no more than 30 minutes spent on this site altogether. My suggestion would be to go back to the drawing board. In the meantime, you will be better off with a blank page.

My $0.02. Sorry if this is something you didn't want to hear, but you asked for direct feedback.

Black/dark designs are in my mind, suited for game related sites (and even then it depends on the type of games), not for hosting companies.

First, you need to spell check your site. I see a few typing errors (not that I don't have my fair share on forums, but on your site is really not a good thing.)

I would remove the link for the hit counter. You can use awstats or webalizer to get the stats you need, plus the sites logo does not show up. Makes the site look even more unfinished and unprofessional.

Remove the "your ad here" link at the bottom. Go look at a few of yoru competitors, none of them have ads.

I am not a big fan of templates in general. You don't want someone out there to have the same site as you do. I also am not a huge fan of dark backgrounds.

Good luck
