View Full Version : Outsourcing Building a Website
07-03-2007, 07:05 PM
I need to outsource ASP.NET the development of a website similar to hot or not.com. Very simple, login, registration, profile, pages, and flash video cababilities (similar to youtube.com).
1. Could someone send me a few links to recommended outsource services?
2. Experiences (good or bad are welcome) please elaborate
3. Aprox. Cost ( $/hour )
4. Some additional instructions / warnings / suggestions are also welcome.

Don't limit yourself to ASP.NET unless you really need all of the other Windows functionality. While I am not religious about it, LAMP development is usually cheaper when hitting up for overseas.
Second - way not enough information. Is the login secure or insecure? Euro world or USA (privacy issues). Will users need to mod/edit their videos?
Note that videos take up a HUGE amount of bandwidth and disk space. Converting videos is ALSO very resource intensive. Then of course, why would you upload a video to your site vs all of the other sites that support video? Why not use vSocial.com or another sharing portal and combine with elgg (google it folks) open source social networking? Robust, huge base, people you can pay to install and configure, and no code-from-scratch issues?
Of course, not enuff info to know if any of this works for your model/muse. But just from scratch what you describe sounds simple, but once your done sticking your fingers in the dike over cross-site scripting, user profile management, etc you've started a $175,000 project. Or an Elgg + would be more like a $15,000 to $40,0000 (depending on the project details).
I'm not knowledgeable about all the tech info, but I hired a designer from elance for a very reasonable flat fee to design my website. We're still in the designing phases, but I can tell you that it's been great working with him so far.

You can put out your project to bid at elance (http://www.elance.com) or rent-a-coder (http://www.rentacoder.com). You put your specs and ask for quotes. It will at least get things going for you.
