I may be a good programmer and good at designing standard user interfaces. But I’m definitely NOT a designer of nice looking websites. Many people have commented, not so positively, on my selection of colors and style for both my personal site at www.lkessler.com and my Behold pages.
Through a close connection I have, the owner of Elite Designs prepared a teaser for me of what Behold’s site could and should look like. That was a no-brainer, and I had to take the plunge. We are close to having the final design and have a few wrinkles left to work out.
So take a look at www.beholdgenealogy.com for the new look. I’d love to hear your comments and suggestions about it.
It will take a few weeks to complete everything, since I’m switching the blog over to Wordpress, the forum over to Simple Machines, and I’m moving the whole website from Myhosting to IXwebhosting.
Regarding Myhosting, I’m very disappointed with them. I joined them 8 years ago, and signed up with them because of an unlimited bandwidth plan to allow for future growth with no worries. Those sorts of plans became rarer, and 4 years ago they eliminated theirs, but did honor my plan … up to last month. The new limits are so restrictive that if I only get 5 times the traffic I now have, I’ll exceed my allowance. I put up with some of their other limitations, but other webhosts now offer more than they do. I have had an account with IXWebhosting for a couple of years, and I’m quite confident they’ll be what I need for the forseeable future. But, it’s never pleasant to switch.
