I am going to sell my free web host "serverheaven.net". We currently have about 1600 users and make about $5 - $12 from Google adsense which covers most of the costs. The site has recently been redesigned and setup to support paid clients so if you were to take over this site you could abandon the free hosting side of things altogether if you wanted. We currently have 2 people who have paid to remove ads from there site I understand this is not allot but i have not advertised any of our paid services.
I currently have a dual opteron 252 from servstra costing about $299 a month with cpanel. The server is an over kill, if you were to take over the site you could get away with a much less expensive server.
I don't want to sell this site I wish to keep it but need to sell it because of personal reasons. I also believe the site can be very successful but all you need to do is advertise it which I can't do again for personal reasons.
I am going to sell it rather cheaply with a starting bid of $150USD if you have any questions please send a PM. Please post bids in this forum or via pm if you want to.
EDIT: The site uses ipanel to automate everything.
Trying to get my head around this... so you have a fixed cost of $299, 1600 FREE user accounts, and how many paid accounts now?
$299 is for the server which is a managed server from servstra. I also forgot to say that ipanel is a leased license $9.99 a month.
$5 - $12 monthly revenue, and you want $150 when you're in loss of $299 - ($5 - $12)?
Google adsense is unstable so some days i will be making $5 and others I can make $10. My best month for adsense so far I got about $260USD. Also the server I am using at the moment is an overkill you go move to a much cheaper server and get away with it I only upgraded because I was planing on moving into the paid host business and I wanted better servers.
Any other costs? What about Ipanel? Leased or owned license?
I answered this above.
Can you prove you have 1600 clients?
I can prove this if needed please pm me.
@rois: They are free users. Also please take into account that I only just changed the sites design so I could advertise paid packages and I have not advertised them on any other web sites.
