DEVELOPMENT BRIEF
|| WHAT IS HOST ANIME?
Host Anime is a Web host provider like no other on the market. Its aim is to provide a service for customers
to enjoy creating anime fan sites without the headache of knowing how a website works, scripting, or any
form of maintenance outside of content managing.
|| WHAT SERVICES DOES HOST ANIME PROVIDE?
Host Anime provides the customer with a selection of anime website designs, which contain a fully functional
website; from contact forms and forums, all the way to episode information, multimedia and downloads.
Providing customers the opportunity to turn these features on and off, add content to them, and upgrade
their site via an easy to use Content Management System (CMS) accessible on the Host Anime website.
|| OPPORTUNITIES & WORKMANSHIP
Since providing these services is a huge job in itself, Host Anime requires an individual or company to
script, provide and customize a Content Management System, along with backend scripts to make this site
possible. The following will need to be provided from you if you choose to accept this proposal:
- A fully-functioning Content Management System for the Client
To provide the customer with an easy to use CMS, it needs to contain features to comprehend and benefit
the services of Host Anime. This may require a custom CMS with functions to turn website sections on
and off, manage downloadable links and lists, manage photo galleries, manage news and comments, and
manage staff privileges to access the CMS and post/edit particular sections.
- A fully-functioning Content Management System for Host Anime
To provide the Host Anime staff with an easy to use CMS, it needs to contain features to comprehend and
benefit the services of Host Anime, and also provide easy listing of customers, payments, cancellations and
functionality. A way to send HTML newsletters to customers is also beneficial. It will also need to contain
and list ALL anime templates, allowing them to be listed in categories, such as “Available”, “In Use”,
“Bought”, etc.
- A backend to Automate Customer Orders
Host Anime uses a WHM (WebHost Manager, cPanel) backend to create servers for the client.
A backend is required to automatically create and setup a client’s website once payment is provided.
This will also require a custom setting to setup the client’s website, based on which template they choose
from a list provided after payment is made. The template and all content will then need to be copied over
from a source to their newly created server.
- A way for Customers to purchase “Updates” for their Site
Via the Host Anime website, customers can access a “Store”. The Store is functioned via HA Points, which
can be purchased from the Host Anime website (see below). Customers can then purchase additional
content for their site, including upgrading their bandwidth, adding new “pre-made” pages (such as Anime
Music Videos, or Episode Downloads), and other functions to benefit their site.
- A “Store” available on the Host Anime website
The Store needs to function by two means: Using real money or “referals” to
gain HA Points, and then spending these Points in the Store. The store can be
used by existing customers to purchase additional content for their site, including
upgrading their bandwidth, adding new “pre-made” pages (such as Anime Music
Videos, or Episode Downloads), and other functions to benefit their site.
DEVELOPMENT BRIEF
|| WHAT WE REQUIRE FROM YOU
Host Anime has been around since 2005, however, the site recently changed direction and as such, we will
need to start from scratch. We require a FULL overhaul of our business, which includes everything regarding
the backend.
This means that everything regarding the Content Management System (CMS), Shop, Customer CMS,
WHM/cPanel Automation system and everything listed on the previous page, is required.
The only thing that is not required in the design of the frontend of the Host Anime website, and anything
regarding the templates provided from us to our customers.
However, there may need to be script implementation to our already-made CSS and HTML website, which
means you may have to develop a non-graphical template for us to customize. What this means is that we
require a HTML/PHP file from you that has the navigation links, news section, content section, and anything
else so that we can then overlay our design and CSS ontop. Further information on this can be provided
when you contact us.
|| HOW TO CONTACT US
You can contact Host Anime via email or MSN:
Email: admin@hostanime.net
MSN: msn@hostanime.net
|| PAYMENT
We will pay the selected person or company an agreed sum once completion is done and a sample is
uploaded to an off-server to provide proof and satisfactory needs.
Payment can be made, preferably, via PayPal. Please contact us (information above) if you prefer a different
type of payment method.
