We are the owners of the site [url removed, login to view], which receives 710 unique visits per day. Our web host site is Sitebuildit but unfortunately, over the years, we have found their websites - which are html - to be very limited and static. This has made it difficult to update/add content to our site frequently, and visitors are not able to post directly to the site. Although Sitesell does have some positive aspects, for example, it allows users to view our traffic stats (unique visitors per day, and month), view image search reports (the Keyword Image Searches that found our site over the past 90 days), provides us with a "sitemap" - a sitemap is a file that automatically informs the major Search Engines (Google and Bing/Yahoo!) about changes to our site and other things like allowing us to "socialize" our website via facebook, tumblr, twitter, etc.
We are looking for a web programmer who can change our site to a PHP e-commerce website, but would still like to have great benefits like the aforementioned ones, as they help us monitor our site, and monetize more effectively. As you probably guessed, we are interested in finding a new web host (for a good price) too.
We would like an e-commerce website with these characteristics:
