    Default New Website

    Hi all

    Just wanted some constructive advice/criticism of our new site. Obviously it's not finished yet as we will be adding pictures of our rigs and Balloons etc in the coming weeks.

    Any advice greatfully accepted.

    Your landing page is blank. It should reflect the same as the 'home' page IMHO.

    Also your WHOIS info says you're in Manchester.. or is that just whoever does your site?

    agreed, would it not be better to have your landing page auto direct to your "home" page ?

    The 'landing' page is the very first site anybody sees when they visit your site. Yours is blank apart from the menu.

    The landing page is the first page you see. If your landing page was the 'home' page, it would look much better but to a potential client, it would tell me this is an unfinished website with no info on it. I only clicked on 'Home' 'cos Juski said he did.

    Overall it looks nice. I think a bit more consistency in font size across the pages would look better.

    Thanks for the info, I'll try and sort it so it lands on the homepage.

    I have switched to Go Daddy from Webs and am struggling with their site builder lol.

    I've rang Go Daddy and they have sorted it for me, so Landing Page should be the homepage now.

    Thanks for telling me that, or I wouldn't have known.

    It wouldn't let me edit my original post but I have changed to a .com Domain.

    Mod note. I've changed the domain to .com for you.

    Customer Support at Go Daddy is really good. I moved my websites from Heart Internet to Go Daddy after some issues with a reseller who was claiming he hadn't been paid when he had. Since I moved, there have been no problems at all. I did have some queries relating to pointing a domain to my DJEP server but, with the help of [email protected] and Go Daddy's support staff, it got sorted out really quickly. I'd highly recommend both!
