Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I was recently wanting to ask a question along the lines of "What options do I have for recurring billing in my web application?"

Where would a question like this go?

This question would go into the bin as a shopping receipt across the network.

If you had a question about how to use (or not have horribly fall apart on you) of a particular feature of a host then that would be an acceptable and constructive form of the question. In that case it would fall under Web Applications if you were a consumer.

If you were a developer and wanted to extend something of the host, that might be either Webmasters or Stack Overflow.
