New site development.
Posted on 2007-07-29
I have a website that i want to get developed. it is basically a website that allows users to search for suppliers in a given area for a given product group. it will also allow suppliers to log in and update there profile/product groups. Also allow account managers to modify suppliers managed by them, with supervisors being able to report on account managers actions.
It will also allow users to enter a product they are looking for and all suppliers in there geographical area to receive email notification of there request and respond.
I have created a static website (not publically accesible) to get a feel for the look and feel of what i want.
I am not a web developer by any means and do not beleive i could produce a professional site so am looking to outsource the actual development, so my question is can anyone comment on the following.
should i go Local (Brisbane, Australia) or consider places like rent-a-coder
my thought was to host it on go-daddy (due to size, bandwidth, price)
what is the critical info a developer needs to produce what we want.
if i go with someone like rent-a-coder and the business develops, how hard is it for a new developer to come along and take over the disign and customization. (My thoughts are that if the site takes off then i would have to look at having someone local or in-house to do the mainenance)
Anything else i should consider.
