We have several dedicated servers to sell shared hosting platforms (We also resell dedicated and virtual servers to). We need to have a functional website setup to promote our services - We are a web design agency however have no time to spend on our own projects!
Please only bid if you are an experienced PHP developer. We are not interested iin someone who can just install a template and bolt other peoples modules on!
The website could be a bespoke app or made with Joomla 1.7.
It will need to have the ability for customers to buy domains, shared hosting and dedicated servers through Google Checkout or Manual Card Capture (We can get SSL if needed). Also a create-your own shared hosting and create your own VPS package where the user can choose their needs and setup.
The system needs an account login system where they can manage there services and have reminders sent when there hosting expires. They need to be able to renew services too. We will take all orders and manually setup accounts however it would be good if the system could automate all services through the HeartInternet API (including domain registration)
In short the site needs to be a full web hosting site with a system which we can administer.
Some sites we like and would like it to look similar to would be:
[url removed, login to view]
[url removed, login to view] (We sell all of these products so use this as the basis for products)
Our current site is [url removed, login to view] however the web hosting site will reside on [url removed, login to view] OR [url removed, login to view]
Our target audience is small to medium businesses who dont know much about hosting, so the site needs to be simple with clear packages and clear pricing!
SEO is very important (With main empahsis on URLS and heading tags). As is lots of content and pages so you can use these sites as examples of what pages and content is needed. Dont mind if wording is similar as long as its not the same!
The design you make will need to look good and use our own websites styles and colours (unless you have a better design)
I look forward to awarding this project to an experienced programmer. If you dont understand PHP well or if you cant speak english impeccably then dont bother bidding. Also only bid if you are serious, im fed up with mickey-mouse developers who dont respond.
Thank you for your time.
