He is currently fully dedicated to his new company and wanted to sell Noah's business. He thought of OpenClassifieds LTD, as leader in the industry, to take care of his project that is online since 2003. The current company that operates the domain name will be closed.

Open Classifieds sees a great potential in the deal. We have been following Noah's since the beginning and considered them as one of our main competitors. We are committed to create the best open sources classifieds software to which everyone can contribute. Support is very importance to us and we provide that through our forum, our extended documentation center and our dedicated support team.

For all current users of the Noah’s software we will be releasing a free migration tool. With this tool it will be easy to change from the Noah’s software to Open Classifieds. We advise everyone to do this as the software of Open Classifieds offers more features, is continuously improving and great support is available.

Noah users that want to keep their current installation don’t have to do anything. However, we won’t be able to offer technical support to these users.

We will keep everyone informed about the new developments and if there are any questions feel free to contact us.

About Open Classifieds

My name is Chema and I am one of the founders of Open Classifieds a Free Open Source software to create your classifieds site. Let me tell you a bit about our history.

I started Open Classifieds in 2009 after I wanted to launch my own classifieds site for the city where I was living. I couldn't find any proper software to do the job so I decided to code it myself and learn a new technology. After releasing the software as FOSS, I got a huge amount of mentions, invitations to events and loads of downloads over the years! We currently have more than 6,000 live sites running our software ;) (that we know of).

In 2012 I decided to leave my well paid job as CTO and start my company in the UK and bring Open Classifieds to the next level by selling paid products. Now Open Classifies is a well established company, based in Barcelona, with 8 employees from different countries. We continue to improve our product and help thousands of site owners to achieve their goals.

There's plenty of room for improvement and we work literally day and night to make our product better and better.

If you have any questions or suggestions I am more than happy to answer them ;)
