Selling hosting business


I am selling my hosting startup to work on other ventures. What I have for sale is as follow..

2 brand new 1u gateway servers (36 gig scsi) colocated at venturesonline.com - these are less than 3 months old

recently added another 36 gig scsi drive to each and also 512 mb more of ECC ram to each

- 20 paying customers with revenue of 338$ per month before fees
- custom template that I had designed for this site
- phpmanager
- domain name which is really nice which I also purchased

The servers are very underutilized at this point - and have very few customers on them - so room for expansion is really good

This is over 3000$ worth of new hosting hardware - and also 20 customers to go with it. Here is a picture of the two servers I have..

http://www.gateway.com/work/prod/sb_...odDetail.shtml before I added more ram and hard drives

I figure the customers are worth about 50$ each so that's another 1000$

I am selling the whole works for 4000 - at this point I am just at the break even costs / revenue so someone with an existing customers that needs a couple of really nice fast servers would like this and could move a lot of customers to the servers.

http://www.axishost.com is the domain - please talk to me on ICQ at 2547147

Thank you - Jeremy - Owner axishost.com

Are you interested in splitting the sale of the hardware from the customers?

Are all your customers paying with credit card? Also, what monthly prices are your customers paying you? IE: x at $19.95 p/m

Also, how much bandwidth do you get now? What is your server co-location monthly fee's?

I'm not interested in splitting the customers and the hardware - and I have found a buyer that will buy the whole works including hardware. If this falls through I may consider other offers

You shouldn't have a problem selling your web hosting business at WHT, but the details about the clients is a little vague (are they yearly paying? which plans are they on?), also as already mentioned above, the running costs of the business would be helpful (co-location costs?). Obviously you don't want to disclose everything about your business, but those listed are essential in a sale for the right price.
