- When you successfully registered on Hosting, now select a hosting plan, there are two hosting plans: Free and Paid Hosting. If you’re just to test this website, then select free, but you’re going to start a business, then select Paid Hosting, it is very important to choose paid hosting to run a successful Ads Classified Website.
- Now, after choosing Hosting Plan, now register a domain name, if you’re just a tester select any free sub domain name but if you’re going to start it as a Brand, then must register a .com domain name, its good to have a .com domain name to give your website a pro look.
- Now, you have a domain or subdomain name, now select “Auto Installer” in your hosting Cpanel account. There you will find an app named “Osclass”. Just install it by clicking on it.
