I'm looking for someone to create a file hosting website similar to YouSendIt using PHP and HTML. I have the domain [url removed, login to view] and a host with quite a bit of storage and bandwidth. I need this person to not only be good at PHP but also website design. Although, if push comes to shove I'll get two separate people for the job.
The site doesn't need to be amazingly complex. In fact I want it simple. I need the website to be super sleek and sexy. Sort of a cross between [url removed, login to view] and [url removed, login to view] would be nice. One things for certain, I would like the simpleness and ease-of-use of urlTea.com. I need something similar to [url removed, login to view] and I like the look of it. But I just need a bit more going on on the page. Thats a little to simple. [url removed, login to view] is a good thing to go from though.
You don't need to worry about creating a logo, I've got someone to do that already.
Design Specifics -
Simple, sleek and sexy design.
Greyish colour scheme with one other colour for logo, header text, and table borders.
White inner template with round edges.
Function Specifics -
Wide range of file extensions accepted (wmv, mov, html, txt, jpg, png, zip, etc.)
No need to sign up to upload file. Just optional e-mail address (so they can view files associated with that address.)
Upload form on main page.
Short URLs. For example each file will have it's own page where users can download from. The first file uploaded will have the address - [url removed, login to view] then the 34th would have /34 and so on.
Upload progress bar giving completion in percent% and estimated time until finished.
Once file uploaded visitors can choose e-mail address to send the files URL to.
Visitors can chose for file to expire after a certain amount of time.
That's about it. It sounds like I'm really picky but I'm totally not. I'm open for any suggestions and ideas. And all the things I've listed above are not set in stone and I don't mind changing things. I just have a pretty good idea of what I want - A easy-to-use file uploader with clean design and user interface. I don't mind if you use a YouSendIt clone script and build upon it. As long as the website design is unique. In fact I've attached a clone script to this post that may help. Or you might prefer starting from scratch.
Thanks a lot, Elliot
