I'm relatively new to the world of web hosting. Have some experience with HTML and CSS, but that's about it.
Have an idea for a site to do some classified ad type postings. Really have no idea how many users I should expect to have. In the first several weeks, I imagine it would be no more than 1000. Also, not sure of what the daily traffic would be either. Graphic content will be limited to maybe some logo and banner ads. Not too much. No graphics will be allowed in the postings.
I guess the big question I have, besides what plan I should get, is what's the best way to put this all together?
I'll need to have each user sign up for their own ID and password. Each user will need to be able to create their own posting, as well as edit and delete capabilities. Also, if they receive a reply to their posting, I'd like the response to be forwarded directly to their e-mail account.
Any good sites online that explain how this is done? Would this be something I would need to use PHP or ASP for?
I'm aware of some software called "e-Classifieds.net", but don't really like the layout so much.
If someone could just point in the direction I need to go to get some good answers or ideas, it would be wonderful.
Thanks very much.
