    i have created a site my free hosting project

    The idea was to make a simple site that will load fast
    and make easy for all the users to see what i offer with out the need to read lots of text and go through many pages.

    The site target are users who want to create them first site for free and does not have advance knowledge of about hosting, and web design

    so basically another webs.com? i don't really feel like going through the site up process. maybe for better reviewing (here), you should create a demo account of some kind so we can go through your features.

    but the page you linked to looks absolutely fine and professional. but the google ads at the bottom looks like you're just trying to profit, which doesn't exactly come off well for you. :\

    but over all the site (the index page) looks good.

    You have some nice free templates - unfortunately none will
    suite my education information website
    You may want to incorporate a dropdown menu or a flyout menu
    here is a free CSS menu generator - I use this one on my site
    CSS Menu Generator
    it has both horizontal and vertical menus
    also you may want to incorporate some free HTML and CSS editors
    in your webmaster tools.
    hope this helps

    I have to agree about getting rid of the Google ads at the bottom. As you have many competitors out there, you want to make your site look as professional as possible...and offer the viewer a reason why they would chose you over your competitors. ;)

    Good job done, though I personally think it is basically suitable for people who are designing personal website for no professional reason as such and wants publish it to web world free will give it a try through your domain. It is also that you are giving a special facility of no forced add, this is the prime reason why your site will be liked, as people who want to host for free have the only dislike and that is forced ads that they have to add in their site..................
    Moreover like that we cannot review your site, as the purpose of your site is something else, so please create demo free website and give us that link to judge your features..............

    I like the looks and simplicity of the site but I have to agree with the others that mentioned the ads at at the bottom. They seem to take away from it a bit!

    about the ads, i know that is ugly but the need to generate some income

    I like it also. The only thing, like others said, is that the ads at the bottom make your page a bit cluttered looking.

    If the ads are tastefully done they wouldn't be objectionable and would be more profitable. Add some articles about building web pages and some free editors and put ads there. Many good free editors on the internet (HTML, CSS, Photo, Web Analyzers, Analytics, etc). Also how to use analytics and analyzers to improve web pages. Don't forget SEO for site and web pages. This is where you list free and the advantages of paid (your affiliates) over free (this helps increase your conversions $$$).
    HTML Editors: a list of WYSIWYG Editors + Text editors, tutorials
    (use examples and screenshots)
    hope this helps

    Your website builder shows pictures at the right side
    If you add click on pictures to view step by step instructions and show the steps with pictures or illustrations you will have a good opportunity to incorporate Google ads tastefully in the tutorials or on the right or left side and put affiliates in the instructions who might be website builders or editors (such as photo editors).

    Some small suggestions. A favicon is always a good idea. I also notice that you load a page which is called i Page, established in 1998. Is this also your company? The $4.50 should really show it is the hosting costs.

    I too like the looks and simplicity of the site but disagree that the ads takes away from the site. After all this is a free service and need source of income to support it. Unlike some of the free service websites where ads are posted all over the page, some even popup all over the place, and not to mention those annoying flashing images; your is simple and below the main content section where it is not distracted from the message.

    BTW, I signed up the free service and it is amazing. If I don’t own a reseller account I would move all my domains using yours. Do you own those servers?

    Hi Chris, received your message. Thanks.

    You got a nice website and should have no trouble of monetizing it. Your current set up probably could do the job but with some of suggestion here you will do better. For example, setting up couple of tutorial pages as Falcon has suggested might keep the visitors around longer; also perhaps explain to them the benefit of signing up with a paid plan could get you more money from your partner programs. Let me know if you need help in setting them up.

    You may want to have a "customer support" link on your top banner for email and/or forum support. The biggest seller of free servers is "no forced ads" the second biggest item is "customer support". Your Google ads are not a big item, placement is important. Also text ads do better than other ads.
    Free HTML Editors, Photo Editors, and CMS builders are a good selling point.
    Tutorials on how to use them also help (tutorials with images or pictures showing the results or examples of the instructions are better).
    I don't know much about CMS but TomW does.
    1st. A customer wants to build a site
    2nd. They want to put ads on it
    3rd. They want to do SEO for position and traffic
    4th. They want to do SEM for sales
    5th. They want to do articles for sales and traffic
    These are the areas you need to address. SEO and SEM they prefer information from personal experience (too many scams and big prices on low return information). Also free software on maintenance of website (some you can not do without adequate software - like keyword search).
    hope this helps

    An example of SEM (internet marketing)
    "Free TI Emulator for PC" is making more money (with Google ads) than any other page. So I internal linked it with my math pages.
    See "Calculus Tutorials"
    Calculus Tutorials - step-by-step calculations with answers
    You will notice at the top I have a link to the page, also in the dropdown menu and the left side menu and the bottom menu. They are not objectionable, but I want the visitor to have a chance to visit that page. No flashing ads, no blinking ads, just text (or menu items) that are normal to the page. These seem to be the best option. Also ads in articles that go with the article (giving visitors a chance to click on information that lead to an affiliate product or a Google ad without disrupting their browsing or driving them away with ads).
    hope this helps

    Considering your goals I'd say you're on point. Easy to understand, loads quickly and to the point. I would agree with some of the comments regarding samples, but still I think you're right where you set out to be. Good job. I like the color scheme too btw.

    Personal opinion - the dull grey background put me off. Looked boring, which is such a shame as it looks a great site. Easy to use, well laid out, interseting looking. The background loaded 1st .. 1st impressions count ...

    Good first impression for me too. The overall feel is professional About the ads, you may consider placing them on another page, if it's no too low ranked. Btw, on the 'read more' page there is no return link to the home page.
