View Full Version : How to create an online auction

I would like to create an online silent auction for horse sales this would be maybe 4-6 horse a year. Is this possible for a dynamic newbie? I realize there are auction sites, but this needs to be on my own site.
Thank you,

I don't know whether this is the right place to ask such a question.

Creating a question involves differect aspects.

1. Designing the system

2. Design a flexible Database

3. Choosing server-side scriptng tool and Database you want to use.

4. start the coding phase

5. Testing etc

If you have programming and some database background you can create it yourself.

Susan, it is possible...

But you must be aware of the thing that it is hard to make money from it...

If you create this auction webpage just for fun - it would be great idea and you can create such a site, but if money transfers, information of winnings or some other valuable information is included - creating webpage can be really hard.

The main worry would be security. If webpage is weak in security and there is chance to get money - that site is attractive to hacker and money seekers :)

All in all, if money is included, make a desicion how much time you will spend on it, because security needs more attention :)
