I want to create a website builder portal that allows people to create websites in minutes based on a few very simple steps. The system will allow the visitor to select a template which will be based around a category like small business, fashion accessories, hobby etc. On the basic level its will be free but there are other features that will require payment to access e.g.using private domain, collecting and storing visitor \ customer details, integration of payment aggregator.
The portal should have the option to add content, edit the fields and upload images.
The admin area needs to keep track of all activity and allow each owner to have access to the backend to upload images and also to check the activity on the site. The focus of the website build portal is africa and therefore will require integration with a major africa based payment processor as well as the typical ones like paypal.
The backend should have the option of loading additional templates by the administrator. It should also have a login , signup and remember password functionality.. The process of building the site should include the ability to preview the site in a window but not include details to launch the site by itself. All details including the url for the site should be sent to the email account provided and can only be accessed after the user activates their account thru clicking on an activation link.
The portal should also have the option to allow owners of the websites to capture the details of those who want to be contacted. This feature will not be part of the free offer.
More details when the job is awarded.
