    Hi mates, as the title says i have only a budget of 100$ to make a Classified Ads website related to my country since there is only 3 or 4 classified ads websites on my country so i think i can get my place there and compete them ( i know 100 bucks is maybe a too little investement but in my country it's a big amount of money i can't afford to invest more then these 100$ )... So i'm gonna buy a wp theme from themeforest for 58$ and then host my website on a free hosting provider for the moment untill i make some more money with adsense (or others) and after getting a good amount i will migrate to a payed hosting site ... So now i think that on the paper it's possible to reach this goal but i dont know if this goal can really reached.. I just need your point of view and what you think of this journey. I'm afraid to make a bad and an unrealizable investement. Thank you everyone and have a nice day. Just sorry for my bad english

    If your budget is that low then I would learn web design. Good luck

    You can probably go with wordpress and some plugins and a good theme. Instead of buying a theme for 50, I would rather opt a good host and get the themes later on. You would just need the functionality now. You can make it look fancier later.

    I agree with Repulsor on this one. Don't go with free hosts, they are simply not worth it. Let me know if you need help choosing hosting.

    Best,

    The theme is expensive for your budget, are you sure you want to spend 58% of your budget for a theme? Avoid free hosting, trust me on this one.
    Either do some freelancing or try somehow to increase your budget, either give up on that theme, it's too expensive for you now. Better share the name of the theme here, someone might have it and is willing to share it with you.
    Good luck!

    Thanks for the advices.. I was thinking to go with a nulled theme before buying a clean one and pay a hostgator hosting but i read that using a nulled theme is too risky so i'm a little confused on how to start with those miserable 100 bucks

    Well nulled themes are not really safe (backlinks to the spammy websites + security issues) . But instead of wordpress, you could use mentioned or another open classified script. Buy some adequate hosting and use the rest for backlink package.
