Me likey! I do keep thinking a third color, just an accent color, would help brighten up the page. The two-tone looks great, but maybe just a few pale yellow accents here and there would balance it out? I'd have to play with it; I'd probably end up right back where it is now.

I also wonder about that acronym being the largest thing on the page: act:wd. That means nothing to anyone; wouldn't you want the largest thing on the page to be something more meaningful? Such as the phrase "Great Web Hosting"?

The only other problem area for me is the customization area-- once you choose options from the list boxes, you no longer know what your choices mean. The attached image demonstrates what I mean. I don't know what any of those values are for, because the labels are the first selections in each list box. You just need to add labels next to each listbox.

Yeah i thought about that so i added it in the title tag and might try using jQuery to let you know what it is your choosing. I understand exactly what you mean about the colour. BUT my web design site is pretty much the same (but more boring as that how i wanted it to look lol) so i wanted to keep in tune with that site.

You try the customiser thing? work ok? had a few problems with it but i think its fine now accross all browsers. What you think of the prices as well? fair would you say for this day and age?

EDIT: and as for the logo... well i don't know... one of those "Qi" things, you either know what it means or you don't lol!!

Pricing... I use Hostmonster, unlimited bandwidth/storage, right now their price is $5.95/month (3.60 pounds).

I don't know what UK hosting costs though.

Just a thought, but on the selectable 'Order Now' fixed packages (ie Standard,Developer) I'd make a link out of 'and much more ...' to list the full specs and features.

[edit]

Just been looking at www.actwebdesigns.co.uk and was having problems on the contact page (Chrome 4.0.207.0, Linux). The page initially shows properly, but the form on the right then vanishes. Problem page for me (although not checked in other browsers) is ...
