ANY IT consultants willing to provide full consultancy plan

Fai

Hi

I'm creating two big e-commerce websites one downloads and other services and want to host them privately.

I'm looking for someone, group or company to provide me a full consultancy document (baby step) in details, what to buy, how to build the servers required, how to build the network, how to build the firewall, how to link things, how to link the database website to the server, protect data ....

Everything in detail which i would expect over 100-200 pages going through every piece.

I'm willing to pay for the service but also expect a full solution for that since I'm not IT proffessional and will provide this study to the hirred IT personnel to follow the guids.

Be aware. IT consultancy firms will not typically just hand over to you some plan that tells you how to do things. They will either:

1. Sell you both the plan and only accept it on the condition that you hire them for the implementation

2. Sell you the plan and write it in such a way that makes you hire them for implementation

IT consultants will always try to maxmize lead on work and will do anything to prevent others from getting it. They will also charge you a premium for the implementation when you can as easily get this from cheaper labour to do the job.

I can do this in my free time but i'd need more information. do you just want the hosting environment or do you want a plan for the total solution? what sort of traffic are you expecting, initially, and at best?

Quite frankly if it's quite simple and you're just starting off i'd suggest against spending the money hosting it yourself and go to one of the many hosting service providers. Much cheaper at this point.

If you see later that the growth warrants having your own dedicated hosting, and it works out cheaper that way, that you can do that .

anyhow do you have any contact details?

If I took this one on, I would make sure the contract is absolutely rock-solid in absolving me from the inevitable c0ck-up that is waiting to happen here. This has grief and personal trauma written all over it. I can just see it now, little Johnny McConsultant getting into a lengthy personal legal battle with Fai, being sued and accused of giving 'bad advice' after Fai's chosen supplier to carry out the implementation bodges it up and consequently the business fails and Fai loses loads of money. I don't think any serious consultant is going to go anywhere remotely near this one!

Also, a word to the wise for Fai... and provided with absolutely no warranty or come-back whatsoever:

"Stick to the knitting". Prepare a brief for what you need from your website, then outsource it to a developer who knows what he's doing. If you're gonna go down the route of trying to code the thing yourself off the back of a 'painting by numbers' consultancy document, you're in for a very steep and expensive learning curve!

I think he's looking for a "Click on the start button, now open notepad, now type in ABCXYZ (x 100,000 lines) to program your website, then plug cable D into socket E and log into your router to setup network address translation and to map your default port 80 to your server by clicking on 'start' then 'run' then "10.0.0.2" to log into your router etc" kind of guide to create something similar to e-bay.

Larry Page and Sergey Brin it ain't gonna be.
