What part of Amazon.com?  Amazon.com has been around for 21 years and brought in US$ 88.988 billion in 2014.  It employs 154,100 people and is rated by Alexa to be the 7th largest web site in the world.  But then... Amazon owns Alexa and many other companies.

i need to list products, sell products and take online payment. simple.
customers needs to register and login.
did not literally mean what amazon is capable of.
but my site needs to be reasonably fast loading and capable of holding large data base.

Do you already have a business established with banking arrangements?  You can hire someone to do the web site part but stocking the products and shipping orders and having the banking arrangements to process payments will take more effort and resources.

Can you please suggest the technology from the options I have given above in the question.
Dave Baldwin

I would choose PHP and MySQL... but without the other things I have asked about, you will not have a successful business.  The web technology is probably the least important part of an online business.

Ok. Php and MySQL can handle 200 million products, any number of concurrent requests and yet load faster?
My question is tech only, not on business development.
