Which platform/framework for an advanced listing/directory website

By Bepixel ·
I’d like to launch a Listing/Directory platform to target a special type of Users/Clients.

Some functionalities are pretty standard and already available in many wordpress themes:

• Advanced user dashboard (to edit their profile, edit their listings and view statistics)
• Advanced listing options with different functionalities (free, trial period, silver, gold, etc.)
• Advanced search and filtering options among the listing items (with and without map)
• Integration of a smooth payment system (e.g. stripe) -Multi-languages

Although some functionalities will be more unique to my project:

• creation of a sub-domain per user (wildcard sub-domain) rather than sub directories/folders (or let the user use his own domain name for an extra fee)
• WYSIWYG interface for users to edit their listings (ie. Visual mode editing)
• Very smooth interface and transitions (Ajax?)

Which platform/framework/technologies would you use for that type of project?

Many thanks
