I want to create a classifieds websites kind of similar to craigslist but I don't want to go through the hassle of learning the code myself. I am looking at products such as AJClassifieds, can someone recommend a software for me? I don't want to do free scripts like open classifieds. I need something that will easily let me customize and change the layouts on a classifieds website, add non classifieds pages, and also provide hosting to handle a potential surge of new users. I need to know what is the best option out there for what I am looking for. Thanks in advance.

I can't really recommend any scripts for this type of venture - but if I were to do something like this myself, and if I didn't know how to code it myself - I'd hire someone to do it. A listing site is not that much work, so it shouldn't run you too expensive - but it'll be your own software which can be customized when you need it.

As for hosting, I'd start out on a small shared hosting plan, and grow that as the need arises and the site gains popularity. No need to start out big on this, since that'll only push your budget and leave unused resources. There's a rather wide array of hosting candidates out there - but do your research before picking one, and have a chat with any providers you put on your list. That way, you'll get a feeling for how they handle support.

Hi Mian,

There a couple of open source scripts you might want to check out to see if they fit your end gold. (at least to start if your end goal is to create your custom solution)

Below are 2 other options... I know you mentioned you aint looking for free but might be worth taking a look and see how much further they can be customized.

- Noahs Classifieds Demo: https://www.softaculous.com/apps/admanager/Noahs_Classifieds
- OSclass Demo: https://www.softaculous.com/demos/OSClass

For paid you could look into codecanyon.net. They have a few listed and Classified Made Easy appears to be a popular one there.

As you will be just starting you can start with a small shared hosting account and upgrade as needed to Semi-dedicated, VPS, or Dedicated server as your site out grows shared hosting.
