    Hello iisp.hk,

    The site looks good.

    One your ads that is in florescent green really sticks out because it a gif image. If it were just a picture and no animation, it would be better.

    Another thought, increasing the font size slightly may be helpful when you have a lot of text. It is a bit rough, but not too much that I wouldn't read if I were interested.

    Just my two cents.

    Cheers

    When I viewed your site on Firefox, the menu and image slider were overlaid. Attached is a screen capture.

    Thank you so much for reviewing our website, Iain, and your suggestion is... what's the word? Ah, Pertinent!

    The Ads in florescent green is from ICM Registry, we just changed the price, original one is 9.99.

    As for increasing front size, I think it's necessary, I will have my design team informed.

    For your 2 cents, I followed you. ;)

    Hey the Banana, name is cute.

    Could you please elaborate what you meant by "try a box shadow on the box's"?
    It really matters to us, we have more and more customers who are from NZ.

    Thank you for your concern.
    I stay here for your further response.

    Regards,

    Oh that's terrible, thank you for the friendly feedback, SmallBizWebsites.Org.

    For helping us solve the problem ASAP, could you please advise what browser and OS you were using?

    I am not sure about whether this is just the reason why we got so few customers from NY or not.

    Im from New Zealand not New York mate ;), so i would put it to international speeds rather than server load.

    I was on chrome, ubuntu on a 100mbs connection, pageload took 45 seconds including all images

    Ah sorry to confuse you, I was quoting the comment from SmallBizWebsites.
    Thank you for the information about your browser, OS, connection speed all the same. :)

    I will later forward all the data you provided to our CTO and let him have a further investigation.

    Hello friends, as I promised in my reply to imthebanana, our CTO Rui already made a mirror specially for visitors from outside of China, could you please take a look at http://us.nicenic.net and let us know how it will work for you all?

    I stay here for your feedback. Thank you for your time!

    Sincerely,

    This one loaded in about 18 seconds (pretty average for down here), i doubt you will get quicker than that without compressing images and files.

    27 seconds faster, sounds great though it's still pretty average as Banana said.

    Everything looks good in Google Chrome.
    The design looks really similar to NameCheap, don't you think?

    About -
    about nicenic.jpg

    and log-in, host, reseller pages.

    Any feedback/comment we can get from your end will be greatly valued.

    Looks ok! The name is brandable! You need traffic now, a lot, to make it trough!

    Oh.. Keep Internet Simple Stupid

    I think you should remove the word stupid because people can understand it like this

    Keep Internet Simple , "YOU" Stupid

    And second, there is nothing stupid with your website!

    Regards!

    wow, what a high praise! Thank you so much yhe.

    Yeah, I can't agree with you more, we need traffic, the more the better, do you have any idea on how to bring more traffic to NiceNIC .NET? I am all ears.

    Actually, it's one of my friends from Germany, an internet celebrity ;) who helped us create the slogan, I consider this "Stupid" was not a negative word but a witticism, working as modifier for Simple, means "very simple", "as simple as possible".
    Besides, when you connect the initial letters of "Keep Internet Simple Stupid", you will see "KISS", kiss ...;)

    That's a tough one Helen! :)
    What i hate the most at my work online is to work to bring traffic to my websites. That's why i'm not sure i'm the right guy to give you advice on that. I'm not very proud with my techniques in this field.

    Coupon promo codes?
    Free Whois for new registred domains?
    Best targeted traffic for your website: Google Adwords

    But i'm sure you already have this lines on your attack strategy

    Best Regards!

    Coupon promo codes? - Yes
    Free Whois for new registred domains? - Yes and lifetime
    Best targeted traffic for your website: Google Adwords - No, some of NiceNIC's keywords already ranked very well. Maybe later.
    I sincerely appreciate your time and reply all the same.
    If we can do something for you as a return, please feel free to drop a line.
