I have made few corrections - I have increased the budget for this website.
This website will be my business website and will have two main parts
1. **Customized service** to my clients based on different authorization. Different types of authorizations that I am thinking right now are Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze.
These different users should be able to see different services that we will provide. Service will have some blogs, ability to upload/download files and comments or feedbacks on the file. Client should also be able to subscribe to RSS feed/ or can be added on google reader.
2.**Forum** - Open forum with the different layers for different vendors. Each vendor will manage his/her forum to answer the queries. I will discuss with you details afterwards based on how we proceed with this.
I am open for any forum software but I thought Vbulletin would be good for forum. Please provide me suggestions based on this project.
Contents on this website should be - 1. very presentable
2. easy to use
3. easy to customize
4. easy to give authorization and authentication to different levels of users
5. easy to maintain.
