I need a written recommendation on how to go about exposing a text message API pay service that will be ready for the future. It should be easy to maintain at 10,000 customers sending 1 million messages per month.
Where should it be hosted. (Ex: Godaddy, Godaddy Dedicated, Azure)
What database to use to keep track of customer usage and text mesages etc. (Ex: Sql, MySql)
Payments (Ex. Cybersource Google Checkout, Paypal)
What endpoints should be exposed? (Ex. JSON, XML)
I want to sell long number text messages, much like [url removed, login to view] does.
I have a provider that exposes an API via JSON-RPC or XML-RPC and sends responses via postback URL.
The ideal candidate would want to bid on the job after he or she helps me write the requirments.
I prefer a .Net enviornment and currently host the website with Godaddy shared .Net but am open to suggestions to make this a RELIABLE service for programmers.
