4. Must have rss feeds
5. Nice layout and design (Will be hiring a freelancer for working on my home page template. Just to make it a bit easy for him/her)
6. Must be SEO friendly
7. I like entrepreneur.com. How do they create that? I mean are they using any cms or custom built?
8. I wont be providing and videos other than maybe embedding them from youtube or so
9. Must possess search within website feature
10. Must be lighter on the resources. I am planning to use the grid service of mediatemple.net. they allow some 1000GPUS. Note sure though.
