    Is Umbraco the best option for a website like this?

    Hello. I know this is kind of a broad question, but I still hope it can be answered :-)

    I want to build a website similar to or

    • database of products sorted in categories (i think no more than couple of thousands)
    • ability to make your own list, website will check the compatibility
    • scrape prices from different websites to make price history graphs and to compare prices.

    Is it possible to build something like this with Umbraco, or do you think there is a better alternative? How would you go about building something like this? Thank you.

    I dont see why not :-)

    None of the functionality you mention comes out of the box in any system I know of, but it should definitely be possible to build it in umbraco.

    There are packages for umbraco that can help you build a commerce system, so you may be able to use one of these to create a product-catalogue

    HTH :-)

    Yes - Umbraco is a good fit for first 2 options but you will need custom work for scrap prices.

    I would keep scrap prices stuff outside Umbraco in my custom tables as this will cause performance issues if they are part of Umbraco CMS and regularly updated.

    So, idea is to keep a common database for Umbraco tables and your custom tables. I can see search can also go complex for your requirements but all possible using CMS by extending it.

    Hope that make sense and let me know for any other points.
