I signed a contract with go daddy to make a website and paid them several weeks ago. Go daddy assured me that they could build it for me. The money included SSL, hosting, debugging and security for one year.
Finally today 3/27/2020 the person, Blandine, called me to say she could not do the job.
Today 3/30/20 Blandine told me that my idea would probably cost $25,000+.
I do not have any way near that much, I will take out eight of the functions and try to see what the freelancers will charge.
I am 74 and have a low income. Either i need to raise money or partner with someone.
She said my idea had to much functionality, and that i needed a web developer and designer, to make it work.
I do not know much about computers, i have wanted to build a website for ten years but cannot find anything or anyway to do it myself.
First, i need a site with all the nations, territories and Island nations, World wide.
I also need every state, county, region and all the cities and towns of every nation.
People must be able to use mobile phones, towers, tablets and laptops.
And the ability of the people to add cities and towns if theirs is not listed. Which must be approved in admin.
I need a great translator, for every language in the World, or most of them.
And transponders to contact the members World wide. All comments are free, then there will be member areas.
There will be two buttons on every page. One on all national pages for my idea. One to go to the states pages. All the states in a nation will be shown, and people can chose which state they want. One button will be on the state main page to go to all city main pages, that page will have a list of the cities. people can then chose what city they want. The city main page will have a button to go to the towns main page, that page will have a list of all the [login to view URL] the people can chose a town.
The functions will be the same on all pages.
But i cannot say what I'm doing exactly. The whole site will be video and or podcasts, photos and text.
And be able to monetize all the videos at different rates in the future, and have one or two ads on each page. I do not want any censorship software, I want a bad words list in admin, so i can add any bad words or phrases to that list. If someone types in a banned word or phrase; a blank space will show a moment later, forcing them to rewrite something, instead of a whole comment being deleted.
In the TOS i want it to say no child porn, no direct threats to kill, no direct threats to injure anyone etc.
I have a main domain name and two others.
There is more, but i would need a contract-agreement not to disclose my idea.
In the future I want to be able to add community bulletin boards, Jobs boards, social media, classifieds and amber alerts, with their respective buttons.
Once a nations functions and features are built and working, you can duplicate that for all the nations in the World. I know some countries are ruled by dictators and monarchies. But i want them listed with the functions if possible.
What i want are localized functions.
Craigslist has an excellent break down of countries, states, cities and towns. You may be able to start with a Craigslist clone site.
If someone wants to go to their city in California, they could type in USA, then Oxnard, California. And get there faster.
Anyone in the World can go to any country, state, region, city or town.
I have one more very important function, its the thing i need a World wide website for, broken down to nations, states, counties or regions, cities and towns. That needs the other button on every page.
I cut out eight applications, how much will such a project cost?
