What would be the best strategy to go about doing this?

You probably want to look at a web framework like flask or django (python) or ruby on rails (ruby) to build that kind of functionality (uploading shape files etc). If you want to have some fun you can write your plugin in a way that separates the UI from the app logic and then use the same logic on the server side so that your flask or django app calls your QGIS logic with the shape file once it is uploaded.
