Hosting company/clients for sale


Introduction

We have the complete web hosting business to sell; Customer, website, software, domains and server. We have been established for a year with most customers being UK based. We have decided to sell this thriving business as it is not part of our long term plan. As a company we are concentrating on our business and development projects instead of the home hosting services. The company has a good relationship with its customers and I am proud to say we always deliver a high quality service. We expect nearly all customers to renew and receive a steady flow of new signups.

We no longer advertise as word of mouth promotes our packages sufficiently for our needs. With a little money spent on advertising I am sure you could develop a company receiving several signups a day. The possibilities are endless. The main advantage to this sale is you are buying a trusted name in the UK hosing industry.

We will only sell to a company/individual who we believe will offer the customers the great service they have learnt to expect.

Site

We are including the current which was custom designed about 6 months ago by a talented web designer. We have also integrated the forum/eSupport to fit in with the website look. More details can be shown up contact.

Support

We currently offer LiveHelp/Telephone/Ticket/Forum support. We aim to offer ticket response within 1 hour. Our customers are pleased with our support service and we receive numerous ‘thank you’ messages. We receive on average around 5 tickets a week as there are so few problems!! The telephone system can be diverted to numerous number formats around the globe. We would supply login information to all the systems etc upon sale.

Domains

We supply a free domain with each account ($7.95 enom account included with sale) ordered. Most accounts use a .co.uk domain which is registered for two years, so these only have to be renewed every other year!! We will supply details of a company selling uk domains for around £4.60 ($8.50) upon sale.

History

We have been running now for nearly one year. The first renewal you will receive payment on is on the 23rd December. The account signups are evenly spread out during the year.

Are you willing to sell customers individually. I'm not looking to buy a huge business, but would be interested in buying some regular customers that ren't resellers. Thanks for any info!

Can you confirm all the customers pay annually rather than monthly?

Hello,

Where it says annually the listed payments are annual. The monthly ones is the monthly price. The two monthly paid packages are: WHT Reseller Special and Custom Reseller package.

We would consider selling the customers separately from the site etc if a attractive offer is made. We will not split the customer base up though.

Thanks,

I could match your prices if you are willing to sell just customer individually, not sure how you would do that without splitting them up though.
