I am looking to start a new file hosting business such as the likes of [url removed, login to view], [url removed, login to view] etc.
I would like a nice simple, but professional design. Straight to the point with no big distractions however very appealing to look at with maybe a colour scheme that could be the recognisable feature of the business. Example: Rapidshare is blue/grey. Megaupload is orange/black.
A logo would also need to be designed. The website will be called shareus so a logo with the S and U being symbolised in some way would be extremely interesting as a small icon for communities could then be created too.
Most file host scripts easily available on the internet have most features I would like in my custom built script so a bit of research on your behalf would be needed. However most common features I would like are:
> Single or multiple upload choices, with split archive uploads allowed.
> Private or public download choices, with option for user to password protect download link.
> Point system on how many files uploaded and downloaded, which can be exchanged for various goods.
> Free or premium membership, which differs in download speed and waiting times.
> Premium can pause and come back to downloads afterwards.
> Premium can download file without coming to the website.
As above, most scripts have the features I would like, so research is needed but some features I would most definetly like are:
> Option to add 'Employee' users to the backend with limited access to what they can do (i.e, add/edit/upgrade/downgrade/delete accounts, monitor files, search for terms in files etc)
> Be able to add/edit/delete multiple servers to use and choose what files go on which.
> Be able to set download limits, uploads and speeds for various memberships.
> Set membership costs and payment gateways for automatic upgrade.
> Set acceptable file types, sizes, split archive options and security settings.
> Option to implement a future virus checking system?
> Multiple security measures to ensure the safety of the website and hosted files are secure.
> Choice to use download managers or not.
Most other features can be found in other scripts.
There is no time limit on this project as I would like it done correctly and made sure there are no holes or bugs in the system before it goes live.
All extras, upgrades, addons and security upgrade jobs will be passed to the bidder on a regular basis.
I would like to see your portfolio's before any bidder is chosen, this must include both design work and custom built scripting projects.
The designer must be able to work off his/her own initiative, and be able to thoroughly research other available scripts to ensure that this script receives maximum efficiency and can hopefully make it with the larger companies around. Excellent and constant communication is needed so must speak good English.
Please ignore the budget and make a bid you believe you can do it for.
