Due to personal health and family issues I will not able to continue my hosting for long now, been in hosting business since year 2000, my main domain which i do business in was started in 2001.
Given my entire past to hosting, from office to bathroom, Laptop and connectivity was always a concern, tickets handled + resolved and closed as fast as possible always.
Client base is 99% India, billed annually, almost all sites which had some traffic still renew the plans, new sales not much but renewals and domains does make lot of money.
Started with local provider who had only shell and ftp access and later i went to hostgator as reseller, then grew from reseller to 3 dedicated servers, then moved to SL But still use hostgator.
have the following servers
1 x hostgator dedicated (cpanel+WHM)
2 x SL Dedicated server (cpanel+WHM)
2 x hostgator reseller (cpanel+WHM)
1 x windows reseller serves 50 clients. (HELM)
Total recurring money paid for all servers is 837 U.S. dollars monthly.
4 x dedicated servers (cpanel+WHM), paid directly by client, not included in my billing, but i do give small support like basic admin support etc. and get 80usd/mo (20usd x 4 a month).
This huge client knows about me withdrawing and fully supports and understands my situation, he would like to partner with new owner and expand in few products they are developing inhouse eg: CCI and online backup service.
Approx 800 hosted customers. (total served hosting accounts are 2000+ which includes resellers + shared accounts).
my servers are not oversold so no load issues or screaming clients.
people who moved to cheaper options and had serious online pressence came back in a few months.
WHMCS based sales
( Est. Annual ) income shown as 31353.25U.S. dollars
Domain based sales handled directly by Directi Based Panel 17059.51 U.S. dollars
so the total business comes to 48412.76 U.S. dollars
(Amonut converted using google from INR to USD and is current)
This includes hosted account, domains sales + domain reseller business on domains sold thru sub reseller.
On Sub-reseller sold domains I make atleast 1 USD on most extentions and on direct sales (direct customer) upto 2USD for each sale.
Total of 2300 domains handled thru Directi Panel, as it has excellent sub-reseller module and customer/sub-reseller are comfortable with this control panel and would not like to be moved to a custom panel.
350 domains handled thru WHMCS as they were purchased mostly along domain with a hosting plan.

Replied to all PM's and just to update everybody I've been traveling since a week and would be back in 2 days to my work place.
Lastly, A friend of mine who also owns a smaller hosting company has made up his mind to quit, I've asked him to come to WHT or he might authorize me to work out a deal for him too.
Details about his domains + hosting account would come innext 24-48 hours.
Thanks all for your patience and interest I look forward to complete this sale before end of April 2011.
Was getting few buy it now offers over email, but I think i would need help from WHT members to give me suggested B.I.N. based upon turnover listed on first post, so i can finalize the sale in a week or 2 from today.
Please send NDA to buyer [at] thunderboltcomputing.com. If you have an asking price in mind, please include that with the NDA along with any additional information you can offer up front such as plan info, etc.
