Ideal hosting server
Preferred Server Type
Dedicated or VPS servers are preferable.
We recommend linux as an operation system. Other os like centos is also good.
Minimum 4 GB is recommended. This can be different as per web traffic. Higher RAM will increase server performance.
Minimum 15 GB is recommended. This can be different as per number of listings and its photos.
Apache is recommend as a web server. Check for .htaccess file support.
MySQL Database Server
We recommend MySQL 5.6 database server or higher for good database communication. Prior to MySQL 5.6 database server do not support map search for listing. phpMyAdmin as a database client is recommend for database management and access.
We recommend PHP version 5.5 or higher. Higher version come with more functionality.

We recommend that your server should be able to use custom PHP.INI file. Some time as per requirement we need to modify some PHP settings and without PHP.INI it is not possible.
