Social Networking website development questions answered

Hi Zoher, thanks for your email and welcome to UltimateWB.  We are happy to answer your questions in detail.  For clarity, we have included your questions first, followed by our answers below.

1. Whether you have templates/options etc to build website similar to facebook?

Please refer to our Features page at https://www.ultimatewb.com/features for a list of current features.  For the social networking apps, you will need to purchase the UltimateWB Full version.  Coming soon in an upgrade to the UltimatWB Full software are many more social networking features.  They will be added to this list, and also added to the What's New page at https://www.ultimatewb.com/whats-new .  These new features will include a Timeline app, Shares app, and more.  Please follow us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/ultimatewb , Twitter at www.twitter.com/uwbsoftware , and join our mailing list to get up-to-date news.  

UltimateWB software does not come with templates - you build your own template using the Styles Manager and the CMS - Content Management System (CMS).  The CMS does have Page Formats you can choose from.

2. Whether you offer rent based hosting service? what will be the space? charges? security? privacy? copyright infringement?

We provide web hosting packages under the Purchase & Download tab, at https://www.ultimatewb.com/domain-names-web-hosting .  For up-to-date info on pricing and features, please visit that page.

What do you mean by your questions on privacy and copyright infringement?  You can check out our Privacy Policy at https://www.ultimatewb.com/privacy-policy .  You can check out our Terms at https://www.ultimatewb.com/terms-agreement . 

3. What will be the database at back end as for e.g. facebook has user related details/location/pin/city etc.

UltimateWB software does use mysql databases.  They are created automatically for you when you install the software onto your server, i.e. web hosting account.  If you purchase web hosting at UltimateWB, currently we include free professional installation of the software onto your server (it still requires separate purchase of the software though).

Using your UltimateWB website admin panel, you can create/customize the registration/profile forms, and other social networking features.  The software takes care of the database coding for it then.

4. If your company is capable of designing and hosting a social networking site, how will i be guaranted that my idea/site will be copyright protected?

We offer web design packages at https://www.ultimatewb.com/pro-services#webdesign  .  We offer web hosting packages at https://www.ultimatewb.com/domain-names-web-hosting .  You can also purchase a SSL add-on there, as well as your domain name, if you would like.  We have posted a recent blog post on SSL.  Please check it out at https://www.ultimatewb.com/blog/1192/should-you-get-ssl-for-your-website-top-reasons-https/ .

5. If i want to shift from your rented space to my own web hosting servers in future how can you help? what will be the charges?

You can host on your own servers which follow the Server Requirements, as outlined on the Server Requirements page at  https://www.ultimatewb.com/server-requirements .  By the way, we have cpanel User Manual topics at https://www.ultimatewb.com/web-hosting-cpanel-tutorials .

If you choose to switch from UltimateWB web hosting to host with another web company, you may ask them if they provide it as a free service.  Some do.  All UltimateWB web hosting packages use cPanel, which is the most widely used and accepted web hosting control panel, and should make your web hosting switch easier.

If you choose to host with another web hosting company from the start, we do have Professional Software Installation service available for purchase at https://www.ultimatewb.com/pro-services .  Please check that page for more info and current pricing.

You can configure your profile fields to include a private option, so you can create a Name member field and status member field and give users an option to set these fields to private or not, or you can set the field to be private or public by default.

By the way, the software also includes options to display whether a user is online or not - their online status - and whether to provide a privacy option for it to the member.

UltimateWB software currently does not include a set "status" field - but you can create it as a member profile field, in the Social Networking app.  To include a status category, you would then need to create another field in the profile form, where the member can choose from a menu their status category.   You can create these options from your website admin panel.
