Online advertising is at boom in India and every day hundreds of new websites are starting up that offer free classifieds service with loads of features. Most of these new start ups are focused on Indian users and do not offer free ads service to international users except few Big players (like Olx, Locanto, Craigslist etc.)
For starting your own free classifieds website you definitely need to have a hosting account with Linux hosting and a domain name of your choice that will represent your free classifieds website. Another thing you would need is a little hands on expertise on managing hosting and domains and FTP & SQL via phpMyadmin.
