Jeffy Posted August 30, 2011 Report Share Posted August 30, 2011 I have a few specific questions about the logistics of running a website. I am not sure if this belongs to the "Business" section strictly but since my question are about finances too I assume this is the right place. (The following is purely hypothetical) Assuming I would plan to build a website about frogs. On that site, people could upload pictures of their frogs (or submit them) which then are posted in a blog-like format. Similar to this website: http://cuteoverload.com/. The functions would encompass a news-blog functionality and perhaps the ability for people to register and create an account on the site (not a forum account) on which they can view their submitted photos and the like. Now I have several questions about this scenario: 1. Logistical 1- Assuming the site would have around 100 photos submitted by people per day, what hardware do I have to rent to support that traffic? (storage space) 2- What are the specific differences between renting a webspace and renting a "box"? I assume box means renting a complete dedicated box and the former being a smaller part of a box. 3- What would the average running costs be? Rough estimates for American or Western European hosting. 2. Business 1- Assuming I call my site "frogsite.com", do I own the rights to the name of that site once I grab the domain name or is there extra legal work needed to copyright that name? 2- Assuming I would hire someone to create that site, in what price range would I be in? (Not asking for an exact quote, only trying to approximate in what ballpark it would be in). This assumes average pricing for western europe/USA based companies.
