Website for selling used hardware - feedback appreciated from hosts and datacenters
I'm not sure this is the best section to post this, in case it's not please moderators move this thread where it should be.
I'm planning to launch a website where hosting providers and datacenters could list their used equipment for sale.
I'm not planning to charge any fees for basic listings nor for items that are sold (eventually featured listings or additional services would require a fee, but this is something that would come with time and is not the point of this post), it would actually be kind of a classifieds listings website where customers would be able to contact sellers directly.
Provided that the site has traffic
- would you list your used equipment there?
- what features would you like it to have?
Hi Zoom Active, thanks for the reply.
A moderator moved this thread in this section, but it actually isn't a review of a website
The purpose of this thread is to understand if companies would be interested in using such a website and, in case, what features they would appreciate.
I'm posting this because I'm not sure how hosts get rid of their equipment no longer in use: if they sell it to customers, list it on ebay or somewhere else or if there are other practices that I'm not aware of.
If I am a seller, I will check Google first about websites where I can post my equipments for free so you need to be indexed by Google and show your website on top results. Therefore, you need some optimization for your website. Why would I search you in Google? It's mainly because if you are ranking well, you already have your reputation in place but if not, I may think that it's possible to meet lots of hoax clients which I hate most in doing my business.
