I remember reading an article in Forbes, I believe, about 5-6 years ago, on eBay. At that time, they were rewriting their entire website every 18 months or so. Not just adding, fixing,amd patching, but REWRITING every line of code.

I don't know if they are still doing that. But that will add to the cost of an "eBay-like" site.
