I want to create a web site very much like Date.com but its not for dating! but as for the log in and search side of things with drop down menus ect. and would ideally like to offer paypal as a payment method!
I think you need to do a little research there... the best host is going to greatly depend on what your looking for. (Perhaps look at the source of Date.com to get an idea of how that's laid out???) - Also, word of warning: implementing web forms may be one of the hardest things to develop. (I tried once... and it bugs me to this day that I can't figure out what I ended up doing wrong
Also would need it to come up at the top of google, apparently with some websites you can put in a special code which helps your chances with google.
Slight oversimplification. It's called "Search Engine Optimization". Worry about that once you've actually got something up and running. Then, when you're ready, there's a sub-forum here devoted to just that: Search Engine Optimization and Marketing
The "special codes" (by which I assume you mean Meta-tags) actually end up playing less of a role then you think, as i understand the process. Who links to you actually ends up playing a much greater roll. (You'll have to look up how Spider Search Engines work to understand the reasons and details for that).
