Not really enough information here to give you a number. However as a general rule I have found 75% of annual sales to be a good place to start. Of course there are all kinds of variables that could make it be more or less than 75%.

+1 to the above assessment. Usually the value of your hosting company is directly associated with it's annual revenue. Acceptable initial values are 70-90% of annual revenue - regardless of costs.

Hope it helps.

It's worth what someone will pay you for it, less your costs involved in selling it :p

At present I'm seeing small hosts (sub 1000 clients) go for 5 to 8 month T/over and on larger hosts about 2years profit + assets

I think the brand HostXNow is worth millions... I doubt anyone would pay that much for it though.

Then your thought is wrong. I can say my shoe is worth a million but doubt anyone will pay much for it....think of something sensible.

It really depends on what you're selling. I agree, that a lot is tied into annual sales, but if you have a strong balance sheet and a company is buying all of the assets (servers, firewalls, etc...) the price has a lot more factors.

On a side note, the business maybe worth more to someone in that region/market where 98% of your customers are versus someone in the Americas. All in all, there isn't enough validity behind your assessment to make a general consensus for a price.

So I'm wrong just because you disagree? You might not think its worth millions but someone else might think it is.

Lol at the shoe example.

Really? So just because Google is worth billions of dollars, if I started a search engine, or replicated any of their products, my company would be worth billions too?

Very few hosting companies are worth millions... There are probably thousands, if not tens of thousands of web hosting companies. If that was the case, hosting would be the largest industry in the world.

What about the obvious?

Incone is one thing, what about cost to run, infastructure and so on. Buying any business of relevant size simply can't be based on turnover.

Earnings and potential if you're a smart buyer.

So true. The current owner could be making just 15k net profit a year due to lack of resources, etc. Run by someone with better resources/knowledge could double or even triple that.

Yes I appreciate all that my point is people are guessing, equally the customers may well be with that owner because they have such a great relationship, along you come and out a fair majority of them will go. Due Dilligence, thats my point. Couple of big hosts were sold in recent years and many customers jumped ship just because that 1 person was not going to be there.

I turn over about £58,000 a month, I am happy to take offers based on you guessing and not looking at anything else...
