The intended website would be similar to any other E-shopping / retail websites, like Amazon, ebay etc. It would have the standard search and browse capabilities of any other E-commerce site, along with some chatrooms and blogs. The SRS has not been made yet, we do have a vague idea as to how we want it to look though. In look and feel it should be similar to Amazon, ebay etc. Data-modeling would be required after the SRS has been made. There might be some interfaces we would have to consider, like a payment gateway, cash back mechanisms etc. The Non-functional requirements (performance / scalability / capacity) would be an issue. A study of the architecture and the data-model would be required for ensuring that. To sum it all up, it would be a very standard E-commerce website.

The application should be built in ASP Dot Net technology and would be talking to a SQL server database. Machine specifications are still not known, they would be output of the scalability / capacity analysis of the application.
