Running cragslist could not possibly be cheap. It is big enough and popular enough that I would guess they probably have it hosted on multiple servers distributed across the country/globe. Each place would be basically a part of a high availability cloud network, each hosting a mirror of the site and database. That way if a natural disaster (or electrical fire in ozzu's history) take out one server, the others are still up and running. You're probably looking at big bucks to do it the same as that. But if you are keeping it small and simple, it is just a matter of shopping around for good host.
