Way over your head?

To develop such a website, you will have to consider spending a LOT of money on hosting, development, database hosting, etc.

Hello my name is Jorge R. from Mexico City , part of my business is webhosting reselling, but lately I have to look for new hostings since the one i used to work really stinks their network constantly goes down due to DoS so i reviewed many hostings and choosed but was doubting between that one and but now i see that both are listed on the TOP 10 so im rest assured that any would be a nice selection.

Thank you for your help.

My suggestion

As long as i can see, you are considering building a PORTAL, that means big space and resources, and constant growing, so I shall suggest you to look for a dedicated SERVER, you can find good prices on that is rated between the top 10 on but why don't you take a look and search between them for the best price.

If you have a dedicated server you can control all your site and grow it without worries and concerns, but be carefull you can choose managed or unmanaged servers, your decision would depend on your expierience to support and mantain a server including updates, security patches, attacks and so on.

The dedicated servers for hosting won't be too expensive dependending on where you look for it, but the development is another story and that can become a way too expensive, but you can choose several Portal systems or CMS (content Management systems) such as MAMBO, PHPNUKE or other openlicense utilities to deploy your site.

Hope that this can help.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
