    Review Web Hosting Business

    Hi Guys,

    Can I have honest feedback about my new business website please the main website is fully responsive and the client area is partially responsive [work in progress]. But other than that, what does everyone think?

    I don't like the typing gif in the background its like a spider crawling in and also is way too short and just keeps jumping back to the beginning looks glitch better with something that's smooth so can tell when it restarts.

    Other than that it looks very professional, where do I sign up hehe ;-)

    Agree with removing the background gif.

    also the italics for 'Affordable and reliable' should not be italicised.

    Also i would just say Business rather than Businesses.

    Unfortunately the animated backgrounds are 'The Future' - As much as they may not be liked, they do make the site feel alive and current.

    Change the italic font, if you want to emphasize these points then make them bold or a different colour.
    I am using chrome, when I click 'Get Started' and I get to the Place new order screen, the text box for a new domain is almost like a list box.
    Also when I press Get Started and it takes me to the said screen, I feel like I am being forced to place an order as if I have already made a decision. Most folk will want to click through to take a look. If it is intentional then change the text to 'Order Now' maybe?
    I tried to search for ddd.com and it was just looping round. When I put something sensible in it came straight back. Maybe put some timeouts in?

    On the main screen, the question marks under the choices don't seem right to me. Maybe actual 'More Info' text would work better?

    Also in Chrome the 'Order Now' button has overlapping text. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    If you keep trying to add discount codes, it stacks the error message.

    I am no UX expert, but these are my views on what I have scratched the surface of. Plenty of other visual things, text that should not be there etc.. but I am sure you are aware.

    Noted and working on these points. What system/device are you using to see the overlap?

    I do like the animated backgrounds say of the Paypal site. I just think this one is too short and keeps jumping back to the beginning, like a stuck record.

    It is not in italics?

    <h2><strong>Affordable & Reliable</strong> UK Hosting Solutions</h2>

    That does sound better actually. Thank you

    I've not experienced this before; do you have a link?

    Hmm, I could do that as an alt overlay?

    I can experience this anywhere. Please could you provide more information?

    Unfortunately I can fix this as this section is the customer control panel but if you provide a screenshot I will report it; thank you
