Hosting Accounts for Sale


Hello,

I have 100 hosting accounts ready for immediate sale. All are annual accounts for $96 per year. Almost all are in the Cleveland Area and have been customers for 2-5 years.

No reasonable offer refused. Please PM me if interested.

Let me clarify:

The accounts are all on Ensim Control Panel.

The breakdown is pretty much divide 100 by 12 and bill them for $96.

The plan was:

50 MB Space/5 GB Transfer monthly/SMTP/FTP/Front Page etc.

The reason for selling is: This was a sideline to a much bigger ISP business which is also being sold. The hosting was a secondary offering to the customers.

The customer base is pretty quiet, requiring no more than 1 or 2 phone calls a week for support.

I haven't had a whole week off since 1996, so I'm mainly interested in closing these accounts A.S.A.P.

Hopefully this clarifies things a bit,

Darren

Will you sell them in smaller numbers? Not all 100 to 1 host?

Hi,

I want to sell all 100 at once.

The renewal dates are spread pretty evenly throughout the year. Roughly you should be able to bill 8 x $96 for each of the 12 months in the year.

If you do a switch right, there will be no downtime

Wrong.

1) Change TTL (in the old NS) to something like 60 seconds.

2) Wait 24 hours (or whatever the current TTL is), then change the IP address to the new server.

3) Replace the nameservers.

No downtime.

Except for AOL users and any other that proxy the web and do not respect TTL of less than a day.
