Now before anyone jumps down my throat about this site being porn, it is not. The site will offer female inmate's biographical info and for a fee, a customer can purchase their contact information so they can write to them ala penpal style.
So, the things I know that will be needed are:
- I am thinking I will probably need disk space in the 200 to 500 mb range for starters and traffic wise I am thinking around 1 GIG a month.
- Since I plan on using java to code the site in, do most hosts have an application server for the use of java, mySQL, and Tomcat? Do most already have this available?
- Internet Merchant acct that can handle customer's orders ala Verisign, PayPal (maybe), check, and money order. I would want the host to be able handle the customer transations.
- I would prefer a host that might have a shopping cart system in place that I could customize and add on to with my java coding experience.
Well, I think that about does it. If anybody thinks I forgot to mention anyhting crucial, please let me know. Comments, suggestions, and estimates on price per month are welcome.
