    ok so I know the market is crowded and theres a new one everyday- But i want to try and exploit a niche...if it blows up it blows it-

    My question is once the ideas and groundwork are laid- who are some good people to go to for hosting/design-

    Obv money is a factor as it will be a high risk startup

    thanks for any and all info...and criticism:x: (this is ot afterall)

    for hosting, you probably wanna head over to www.webhostingtalk.com and read reviews of companies there since theres like 11tybillion hositng companies (most are resellers).

    a lot of companies will have people giving bad reviews but remember to find out how long theyve been in business..eveyrone is bound to have bad reviews.

    i personally like:

    liquidweb (great support if u dont know shit about webhosting, pricey though)
    hostgator (for shared hosting, havent had problems)
    softlayer (have heard decent things about them)

    you should probably start off with a VPS or Dedicated IMO. make sure you check your bandwidth limits as well...theres where it can get expensive

    oh and your idea...i wouldnt go into it.

    like you said, market is too saturated and most people just go to myspace/facebook anyway.

    good luck though :)
