How to make a Classified Ads Site?

I'm a college undergraduate of IT with some basic knowledge in programming like html,css,javascript, and so on. I would like to make a Classified Ads Site here in my country, which can buy and sell products and free posting and so on which could help my country men/women to look for the things that they need as fast as possible by using the internet as their gateway, but my problem is i dont know where/how to start? Should i have a website first/buy my own domain? What programming knowledge should i focus?

This might be stupid to ask but well my country needs this for easy access to any products and services....

Any idea will highly appreciated ;)

You can buy a ready-made site script for not much money, there would still be a lot of tailoring work to be done but it can be a real time saver.

Try a web search for "Classified ad site script"

or "Craigslist clone script"
