If you’re looking for a script to power your website, whether it’s to offer a new service or to put together a site to flip (resell), you might be interested in what’s available at BuyThatScript.com.
BuyThatScript offers six commonly-requested, turn-key scripts for building quick, popular websites. They can be used to build a stand-alone site based on the script or a section of an existing site to augment traffic.
These scripts are reasonably priced and you can request a quote for a custom-made script if you don’t see what you’d like. Given the prices listed for the scripts on the site, I’d guess that the developer’s fees are very reasonable.
The script list includes:
A URL shortener (think bit.ly or pie.im) you can install onto a domain and create your own URL shortening service.
A jobs script for creating a job posting site where users can post or review jobs and subscribe to the RSS for the site to get updates as they happen. It has several other functions too, making it more robust than a merely glorified classified ads script—which many lame job posting sites basically are.
A wallpaper trading site on which users can post wallpapers for download and find others they’re interested in. The admin panel on this one has lots of functionality.
Have you tried the new Aardvark or similar ask-it websites? Well, why not make your own? There’s a script for that too.
Two smaller scripts for integrating YouTube’s API into your site to fetch videos (based on searches, page-set criteria, etc.) and a Twitter search script so you can use the Twitter API to pull the latest tweets based on keyword searches (like hash tags or terms).
You can preview and demo any script on the site right from the screen and query the coder with any questions you have about the script, such as installation issues and so forth. Purchases are through PayPal by either direct PayPal transaction or credit card.
Buy That Script appears to be an extension of JungleScripts.com, another of the same developer’s websites.
For the site flipper who likes to quickly build a site from the ground up or take an existing domain with potential and turn it into something better, it’s definitely worth looking at Buy That Script. I’m sure there are plenty of flippers out there who enjoy the virtual turn-key that can be had here. Much easier than paying big bucks through a freelance service and hope what you end up with is what you wanted.
You won’t find scripts this good on the usual outlets of cookie-cutter script and website plug-ins sites either.
