Hello Jason,


Thanks for your question about creating a website like Etsy.  If you think of it on a smaller scale, then it is definitely possible.  You can grow it to be something much larger, but you will need to have the resources of probably a network of dedicated servers.  Just to give you an idea, Etsy has about 2.5 million sellers and 39 million active buyers worldwide.  To provide services for all of their customers and buyers, you would need to either find a software system that can handle it or develop one.  This may require a certain set of hardware that you or a developer will need to determine. Depending on the scale of your solution, you may be able to use a VPS or shared server. We provide hosting services that can run e-Commerce solutions, so you can definitely run something akin to Etsy, but matching its size and scope will require much more than a single hosting server.


If you have any further questions or comments, please let us know.


Kindest Regards,
