Clone of [url removed, login to view]
It has to be a perfect or better clone of getresponse.com.
The following are the changes we want to make on the clone.
• Two languages: Spanish and English. Need a language file. I can translate the language file into Spanish.
• More than 1 Plan – We will offer 4 plans initially, must be configurable if we want to add more plans. The only difference among plans is the speed of sending email. For example, Plan 1 will send 1,000 emails per hour, Plan 2 will send 3,000 emails per hour. Our plans are monthly. In addition, we will offer discount if users pay for more than 1 month.
• Selling subscribers. We will have our own lists of email to sell to our website users. Each list has a specific fee or price per month. Lists cannot be downloaded by users. These lists can only be used on our website. Lists must be divided in different categories and subcategories.
• Payment through Paypal
• Payment through Deposit or Bank Transfer.
o Accept payment through deposit or bank transfers.
o Users should be able to enter the information of deposits or transfers through our website. This will inform us that we should check our bank account to manually confirm the payment.
o Admins must manually confirm these transactions.
• Payment through DINEROMAIL.
o This is a payment system similar to Paypal here in Chile. However, the API is different. We can give you the code for this API we have developed in other website. You will have to implement it into the website.
Information and Help:
• Right now, we are using PHPLIST to send emails.
• At most 1 account will send 10,000,000 emails per month.
• When 1 account sends 10,000,000 emails we have around 5 GBs on information on a database.
• Right now, we contract VPS account. In each VPS account we will manage around 5 Emailing Accounts. The characteristics of each VPS account are the following:
&#61607; Disk Space 30 GB
&#61607; RAM 512
&#61607; Bandwidth 250 GB
&#61607; Processor 800 Mhz
• We would like to keep using VPSs because we won’t want to invest in servers. In addition, each emailing account needs a lot of requirements, this is why, we only have 5 emailing user for VPSs Account.
As you bid, we need you to answer the following question:
• How would you manage the high requirements of Disk Space for the database in statistics?
• Because of the high volume of statistical information in the database, phplist get really slow. How would you manage this to make this clone or script run faster?
Problem with PHPLIST.
1- We have to open each account manually.
2- Send 10,000,000 emails monthly per accounts. This creates about 5 Gb. of database statistical information.
3- 5 Gb. of database statistics make looking at the statistics very slow on the website.
