Building a web application using WordPress

I am trying to build an application like builtwith or datanyze or similarweb. I have the data partnerships in place. Meaning, getting the data is not the issue. Let's say I already have that in place. The dataset would be close to 50 million domains (rows) and it would have 500 columns for each rows.

How do I build the application so that I can sell the data on a subscription basis to customers?

There will be different plans and they will have different features and access,
and there needs to be fllters for the showing the data.
Filters - If I as a customer login, then I would see options for choosing filters like, what technologies I would like, then, what alexa rank, etc. When I choose the filters, and click on show, it would show the results.

I know that there are subscription /membership plugins and so on. Not sure if they would satisfy my needs.

And also, how would I implement that to my particular project. What else would I need ?

    Hey there Nicole,

    Hope you are well today. This does sounds like something fun. To start, you will need a base membership plugin like Membership 2. This will mainly manage the different subscription account types. The core application to filter data will need to be a custom plugin built around the membership plugin where different functionality is dependent on the type of membership a user has. You might have to try out the jobs board for this, I dont think there is a plugin out of the box that will be able to handle this data keeping in mind the users memberships.

    Warm Regards

      There are several table plugins out there, like wptables that can handle tables. but not sure about the filters though for searching.

      Also, can't i just setup (from the admin panel), which technologies a user has access to, which fields, number of rows and columns, visibility of data to the user.

      I understand that there would be a bit of custom work involved but it should be minimal given there are so many plugins out there and we should be able to find something that is somewhat of a close match. This should be enough for me to get a little custom work done and get to what I want.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
