What do I need to launch a membership website?

asked Sep 10, 2016 in General by matinw (120 points)
Hi, I'm from Singapore and I'm looking at building a membership- based website to sell my online service. For example, members have to pay an annual fee to receive my service. From there, they would have their own profile page (just like a social media page). So I'm wondering what do I need to get it running? How much space (Disk space, MySQL)  do I need to have? Any recommendations on a hosting website that would support membership websites?

Thank you.

Hello matinw,
I am really glad to know that you are going to start membership based website to provide service to your clients.
There are many things you need to do. Below is a list of those -
1. First select a good domain and hosting provider for your website. Every hosting provider support this type of websites,
2. Build a CMS based website,
3. Add admin panel into your website,
4. Integrate Payment method

Initially you would not need mush space and Bandwidth for your website. But later you have to upgrade gradually.
