Craigslist began in 1995 by Craig Newmark  before just servicing the San Francisco Bay Area and then it expanded throughout the United States as a website that offered free online classified ads from housing, personals, sales, gigs and to job postings, even though this last one requests some payments in certain States.

Craigslist got incorporated in 1999 as a private for-profit company and now serves 570 cities in 50 countries in the following languages English, French, German, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese. 

The following are simple steps on creating an online Craigslist account that can benefit you, especially good for employers looking to hire or for someone who wants to sell things.

First go to the Craigslist site which is www.craigslist.org.

Once there look on the bar on your left hand side and click on “go to your account”.

A new page will open and read first the warning and underneath where it is asking for your e-mail and password you can click on where it says “create account”.

Another page will open and will ask you for your e-mail address and to verify the word and click.

Another page will pop up which will thank you for creating the account and tell you to go to your e-mail and click on the link to make your account active.

Once you lo-gin to your e-mail and click the link on it you will have a Craigslist account.
