    38 Hosting Clients for Sale - $6269.87 in annual revenue

    Due to family issues I am selling my hosting business. I have already sold about 100 clients that were on different plans, however, I have 38 premium clients left to sell. These are clients that require very little support and pay a premium for their services. However, I will ONLY SELL TO A COMPANY WITH A GOOD REPUTATION that can provide QUALITY support to these customers. They have been very good to me, and I want to make sure that they continue to receive a high level of service.

    I am not selling the business itself. I still have web design and consulting customers that I am keeping. I am just selling the clients below. I will give you full access to the server to transfer the clients. The server is paid for the next 30 days; if you think it will take longer than that to transfer these clients, you will need to pay the server bill to keep it online.

    Detail of the clients:

    Total Shared Hosting Annual Revenue = $4301.87

    Dedicated Server Clients:

    Note: These are really easy. These are fully managed servers, and the support is provided by a 3rd party server management company. All you have to do is forward any support requests to that company. Just collect the money from these customers each month and pay the server bills.

    37). Dedicated Server, $421.00 monthly
    Client Billed on the 22nd
    Server Billed on the 13th, $339.00
    Total Revenue = $82.00
    Yearly Revenue = $984.00

    38). Dedicated Server, $421.00 monthly
    Client Billed on the 17th
    Server Billed on the 29th, $339.00
    Total Revenue = $82.00
    Yearly Revenue = $984.00

    Total Dedicated Server Annual Revenue = $1968.00

    Total 38 Hosting Clients Annual Revenue = $6269.87

    Some Considerations:

    1). Reasonable monetary offers will be considered. Keep in mind that the vast majority of these customers pay monthly, so this is instant revenue for your business. These are also mostly business customers and they are very loyal, provided they continue to receive top notch service from you. Thankfully the volume of tickets for these customers is very low, but when they do need support, they expect it to be provided in a timely manner.

    2). I will only sell to a reputable business with a good reputation. As I said, these customers have been very good to me, and I want to make sure they are treated well.

    3). You are responsible for transferring the clients to your servers. The billing information is stored in ModernBill; I am willing to export all of the data, but for obvious reasons will not provide these clients credit card numbers.

    4). These clients are on DirectAdmin. Transferring to another DirectAdmin server would be easiest, but if you are comfortable moving them to another CP, that's fine. Keep in mind most of them have mySQL databases.

    5). The ones that have registered domains with me are in an eNom reseller account. I also have a few personal domains in that account. I'm open to suggestions on how to proceed.

    6). I have 3 sites that I need to host until November. All three are extremely low traffic. One of them is the main hosting company domain, that I need to keep open to receive email. I will forward that to your hosting company as well, if you want (it's a PR5 site), but I do need to be able to keep my email.

    Please post any questions here, in PM, or email to jm7400 at hotmail dot com.

    Thank you!

    Just FYI, based on some PM's I have received, if you're going to offer less than the annual revenue for these clients, don't even bother. Offers need to be realistic.

    Edit: Also, I will throw in for free my 30 client license for Drag & Drop Site Creator. One of the clients listed above uses it to design their site.

    Received a tentative offer (pending verification of income) of $8000

    I'm going to set a BIN on this at $10,000, but I do reserve the right to refuse the sale to any company that I do not think will be a good fit for these customers.

    How many of the clients are aware they are going to be transferred?

    None of them are aware they are going to be transferred. However, I will certainly be willing to remain available to these clients for a period of time after the sale to allay any fears they might have about a transfer.

    A few people have asked if I'd be willing to sell the entire company, website, software, etc. I am willing to discuss it; when you send inquiries please let me know if you are interested in just the clients or the entire business.
