I'm looking to have an Instant Messaging software to be developed with a uniqueness to it (which will be disclosed when i select the winning bidder).
Software should be a client / server application. Where a user it to download the software from a designated area (such as a website) install it and able to add new contacts.
Out of all the most popular instant messengers out there, this should most resemble MSN Messenger (it's interface, it's look, it's features,it's ease of use, etc, etc..)
Messenger must also be designed in a way where (just like on msn) I can place banners from a CPA site to generate cost per action revenue such as comission junction.
*** NOTE: This software must not be copied from anywhere as I want to retain the full rights to it! ***
I don't exactly know what it is that is required into building and hosting a software such as an IM, but I'm assuming some sort of Database would need to be created as well in order store any contact information.
Also, I'm not exactly too sure as to what kind of hosting or server would be needed in order to run this software which I'm hoping the developer would be able to help me out with.
Are you capable of creating / designing something like this ?
Do you have a demo of something like this before that you have created ?
Would like to have this done a fair time span.
