cPanel/WHM

Linux hosting is the best out-of-the-box solution for our software because it is compatible with PHP and MySQL, and coupled with cPanel or Plesk control panel ensures stability.

Local hosting

If you are going to target a particular geographic area, we recommend hosting your classifieds project with a local hosting company as it will enable your site to work faster.

Scalable hosting

You can easily start your classifieds site on shared hosting if you are launching it without any data, and further upgrade it to a VPS or a dedicated server once your site grows bigger.
