Soqui

Update posted by Jacob David Cunningham On Dec 12, 2014

I own the domain and I will return to this project but I need to make money. 

I'm going to set up a computer repair service and I need the IP address of the three that I own and point it to the one Soqui.us is using. 

I know that "Investment will be trippled upon success" sounds like a red flag like "Wow this guy is a scammer" indeed I have no way to prove that. But I am not going about this completely about monetary gain. I want something like this to exist. 

Anyway, if anyone is interested feel free to contact me.

Well, I got the server situation figured out

This isn't a huge priority on my part so I'm not going to work on this project for a while. But I will return to it, even if the idea doesn't start (the idea is very valuable) but it will be more for my portfolio to build my reputation as a web developer and failed business man haha

I'm having some trouble configuring the VPS, have to figure out where the separate IP addresses are. 

My current parent site is up though, normalbus.com 

I had Cunningham Technologies in mind but alas it has been taken

I'm taking a break from developing this website for now 

I'm working on a different project, a dating website: d2nd8.com 

Once that is built, which has its own share of headaches, then I can let that grow its member base and continue working on this. I'm also working on my company parent website. 

Soqui is on hold at this point. Even with a functional website, the service has to be sold / set up so I'm not in a hurry. Plus no one seems to show interest in this project anyway so I have to shift my priorities. 

The important thing is that soqui.us has been secured, I didn't get soqui.com because someone already purchased it. Anyway initially this will be national not global so .com is not that important. Plus .us is cheaper compared to .com

Check it out ! 

http://www.soqui.us.com

Anyway, it's just an image at this point but I own the server, the name and now it's a matter of programming. I've got to set up a database, the search bar, ranking algorithm, fake profiles, randomized profession search results and other stuff... I'm not liking the diagonal background it was just a spur of the moment idea. I think I'll stick with white.

I purchased Soqui.us as .com was already taken. It was a small fee of $4.99. Then I bought a Virtual Private Server (VPS) which gives me 3GB of Ram and the cpu spces as well as 3TB of bandwith a month. Seems plenty.

I'm not saying that Soqui is easy, far from it really. The software is not hard. Starting Soqui is what is hard. 

Today assuming that my sale of my laptop goes through, losing money here, a fully functional Lenovo ideapad S415 valued on average $400.00 for $140. It does have a minor screen defect (clump of light pixels).

Anyway, that will be huge. I'm going to buy soqui.us which is $4.99 

I would have preferred soqui.com but that was already taken. Wouldn't you know it, Soqui is a photographer's name. 

Along with that I priced out some servers from GoDaddy, I'm looking at a virtual private server (VPS) as this is within my budget. This server will actually serve multiple purposes (websites) and until there is some real life, I won't need a dedicated server. We are provided with 3GB of RAM, 90GB diskspace, 3TB of bandwith a month. Plenty for now and it's $40.00 No backup though, I'll have to set up some sort of FTP backup. 

Today I will have a functioning Soqui website with fake names. What I will need help with aside from funding is the validation problem, human resources ranking of employees, after that it is about the offices, financial aspect, selling the idea... but I'll get a working prototype at least that you can interact with.
