Talking FREE Dedicated Server Consulting Site - Feedback Please! :)

Website URL
Requested Feedback:
I would really like some feedback on the overall site dynamics, -- anything that you think would help my conversion rate (conversion being a filled out form, at the bottom) -- any suggestions on content, features, etc would be much appreciated. The contact form is by far the main conversion goal and what I want every visitor to fill out.

Additional Comments:
What is it? Many people ask me for advice when setting up a dedicated server and I am more than happy to help anyone that does, however - it usually takes me a few emails back and forth to just get the basic info I need to be able to get them a quote that meets their requirements.

I built the site mainly as a 'prettyfied' questionnaire form - at the moment it's pretty raw, but I will be expanding the form to ask all the necessary questions like number of CPUs, number of cores, CPU frequency, RAM, etc... that I need to find out, ideally with dropdox or checkboxes so that people that aren't even sure what they really want or what's available can flip thru the choices.

What do I do with the information? Because I have long standing relationships with many account managers at several of the larger hosting companies (such as The Planet, which is now SoftLayer but the same, or Superb.net), I am in the loop and usually know about any deals that are available, including any unpublished closing deals, and because of this can usually negotiate a much better rate for new customers than most people would be able to achieve if they contacted the company directly.

Default rewarding your visitors

I think visitors would stay on the site, and post links to it, if it had a FAQs of common questions. The internet is full of questions about hosting - e.g. WordPress database connection error (8,400,000 results), and a site with quality answers (most search results just list complaints!) would serve visitors and attract the email contacts that may lead to future business for you.
