Free WebHost & WebMail Portal to let go with more than 1000 members!
Due to the lack of time to continue the venture, we have decided to sell off our Portal that provides Free Web hosting, Free Webmail and also a search engine directory.
Currently there are more than 1000 member already signed up and we are using a custom directory script with a intregrated Hivemail and SSP installation.
What you will be getting is as follows :
1) HiveMail script and transfer of license - $99 ( original price )
2) SuperSites Pro Script and License to operate on that domain - $199 ( original price )
3) Custom Directory Script - No Commercial price for Custom scripts
4) Intregration of both HiveMail and SSP
5) The Domain, files and Database
Transfers will be handled by use, so all you need to do is to create for us the FTP login and SQL user/DB and then sit back and relax
We will get the site and files transferred for you.
What the user will get is both a WebSite and a Webmail account whenn they sign up at the site. And whats more the site works like a mini Search Engine and Directory which can provide the users with and experience that is very much liek Yahoo! + Yahoo Geocities.
We are looking at a min start bid of USD$300 and a BIN for $500
Interested parties please contact me on MSN for a fast transaction at [email protected]
These are free hosted sites, I am unsure of what you mean by "quality" because the people who sign up have their own free right to create the site of their choice.
And of course like any other free web hosting site, there would be a large number of people who sign up and leave without doing anything, leave half developed sites or just forget about their sites after they get tired of it. ( Look at GeoCities or AngelFire and you will know what I mean )
No worries I mean quality in a different term - more as in: having a look if people are active or not. A free service can be worth something if people are active. But if there are 900 unused sites out of 1000 then it's not worth it That's what I ment. Since you have a directory list I'll just browse that.
No problem, the Directory is made in such a way that the user can opt to be included or not be included.
They will get a menu to get their sites listed in where they want and also do other things like creating their site online.
sadly... We forgot to install the Stats Tracker so we don't have any page view stats to display, but the Google and FastClick earnings should show that this is an active site.
You can also make the banners stream to both the free member sites and their web boxes for more impressions if you like which we are not currently doing.
The License for the 2 commerical scripts are already well worth the bid
From personal experience after running free web hosting sites for almost 2 years and with my other web hosting site at www.galacnet.com, the rough average for any free hosting site is really 90% "Crap" and 10% Goodness.
Where the 90% contains dead sites, illegal sites, prono sites etc etc
These are just some things you may want to take note if you want to start any free web hosting service.
Damn server.... It has been doing that for the past few months and its hurting revenue.... but it should be back up again.
As for the features, it is a modified version of the script which is intregrated with hivemail. the users will be able to do things like submit their site to a specific category, online editing of the site, read emails etc etc
The admin can do things like delete users, searching of users etc etc
The scripts itself will not take up a lot of space, but as we provide 25mb of web space per user, be ready to have 10% of the full capacity ready.
So in other words get ready about 2 GB of space, but 2GB would only be a safe bare minimum for this but I expect it to take up more as the member count increases.
Which since the date of this thread, the member count is reaching 1100 users.
As for the end date for this, our reserve price is $300 as that barely covers the amounts paid for the scripts used on the site and the hosting fees since Dec 2004.
If someone is willing to take the reserve price and no other offers by the end of the week we will close this sale.
