    PR 4 Free Hosting Site with 13,000+ Accounts

    I am selling http://www.hostfree4life.com. Host free 4 life is a free hosting site that offers php and mysql sub domain and domain hosting and currently has 13635 free accounts hosted. Currently the site is getting about 70 - 80 new signups per day.

    Included in the sale are:

    - http://www.hostfree4life.com domain, design
    - http://www.hf4l.com for sub domain hosting
    - full Xpanel license (free hosting control panel)

    Reason for sale:

    We are a full service hosting company and have decided to concentrate on our fully paid hosting service instead as this is growing very rapidly and consuming more and more of our time. We also can't use YPN to monetize the site now (new YPN not available to australians currently) and that means we aren't seeing the profits from it that we were.

    This is still a fast growing site with lots of new members signing up - you can see traffic details at:
    http://www.alexa.com/data/details/tr...m&url=hf4l.com

    Revenue:

    Revenue was coming from YPN and Adsense. But Yahoo pulled YPN for Australians (we're Australian) so we have had to run only Adsense for the last couple of months which has nowhere near as good a return as YPN. Currently Adsense generates about $10 - $20 per day. YPN was generating up to $60 a day when we were running it.

    Operational Costs:

    $99.00 per month for dedicated server at ZipServers
    Athlon64 3200, 1 GB RAM, 80GB IDE, 1500GB Transfer/month

    The server can be transferred to you.

    Starting Bid: $1500
    BIN: $6000

    This is an action. The auction will end Dec 30 if not sold beforehand with BIN.

    Server

    Services such as bind, apache, php, and mysql have been highly tuned to cater for running of so many web sites. Xpanel (the control panel) also tunes the server to accomodate this style of free hosting.

    Server load is very low most of the time and we have not had any issues with load or downtime etc...

    Mate if your still selling, quick question, price is in USD correct?

    Also do the current sites have ad's?
    Whats current space and bandwidth usage?

    Last of all is server managed?

    Hi everyone.

    Appears the winning bidder "prudents" is stuffing us around on payment - so I can now reply to your question "stranger".

    - Price is in USD
    - Disk use is at 30Gb
    - All Sites currently serving Adsense ads
    - Bandwidth use is about 10Gb per month
    - Server is unmanaged

    I am happy to entertain offers that match the winning bid to complete a quick sale seeing as we haven't heard anything more from "prudents". Winning bid was $2500. Otherwise we will be relisting the site for sale.

    Thanks.
