I'm thinking of building a django application which is like an online shopping mall similar to eBay and Amazon. My business model is somewhat like that of Shopify or Volusion, which means I will build the app as a hosted ecommerce solution/SaaS that offers different plan packages for the users to sign up to and have a store.
- What kind of hosting do I need to host this solution? Do I have to have a dedicated server? Or can I just use a cheap VPS or even an unlimited business shared hosting when I'm starting up?
- How do I make it work like Shopify and Volusion (hosted software solution which allows users to sign up and choose a package)?
I have never done this kind of things, so I am quite frustrated and clueless at the moment. Please, if anyone knows how to do this kind of stuff, give me a hand or at least point me a direction where I should go to find information on this.
