    Web host for sale

    Hello,

    I am thinking about selling my hosting company due to personal family problems.
    It has 53 shared hosting customers and 5 resellers, bringing in $4503 annually, hosted on a Dedicated Server.

    Breakdown of accounts
    58 Total Cpanel Accounts
    Monthly income: 375.25
    Annual Inome: 4503

    Im asking for $4000 for all the clients and the domain name (Irdhost.com) is available for sale.
    The majority of the clients have been with me for more that 3 Yrs.

    My company has a very great potential because before October 2006 and the problems caused by platinum23 (user here) again our enterprise, our annual income was of more than $21000 US/yr.

    I have not done paid promotion, and recieve about 3-5 new customers per month from search engines and word of mouth.

    Please do not email or post here only pm me.

    Currently our clients pay via either Credit Card or paypal.

    Thanks
    pm me if you have any questions

    This is to inform you that the highest offer that I received is $4500 based on the higher informations.

    But these infos on income was not exact.
    I calculated manually my income coming from customers and here are the results:

    Monthly Customers: $120.67 ---- $1448.07 (annually)
    Quarterly Customers: $134.91 ----- 539.64 (annually)
    Semi-Annually Customers: 65.76 -- 131.52 (annually)
    Annually Customers: $ 3404.86 (annually)
    *************************************
    Total: $5524.09 (annually)

    All annually customers are with us for more that 2 yrs, and all package will be due on next 6 months.

    These incomes do not include the incomes coming from the sale of the domain name ($1000/yr).

    Our domain name is include in the sales too.

    I want to conclude the sale of my company today or as soon as possible.

    Couple questions.
    Can you provide proof of income?
    How come your signature says since 1999 and you are claiming customers with you for more then 2yrs but idrhost.com was created Creation Date: 12-jun-2005 (that is only 1 1/2 years ago)
    What is the cost of your server?
    Where is it located?
    What is your bandwidth usages?

    Just a VERY minor aside and I apologize for bringing it up in this thread but the issues that were "caused by Platinum23" is an unfair statement. As was very widely publicized here, Keith Mansfield (Dadazio) who was a peer1 reseller ripped several of us off at that time which caused the issues.

    Platinum (Robert) is a good guy and I would hate to have his name dragged through the mud. Anyway good luck with your sale.

    Hello Studeggle,

    Yes, i can provide proof of income.
    I'm member of WhT since 2002 (so 4 yrs) and i start my business in 1999.
    Irdhost.com is not the domain name that i started with it in 1999. please check the whois for imperialregistrar.com.

    I run a dual opteron 246 and that cost me 260/month.
    Bandwidth usage is of 400 GB/month

    Hello CoolRaul,

    I don't know if you are able to get back your customers data and save your company but me, i loose many $$$ with that mess.
    Before that i was able to sell my hosting business for more that $25k.

    Now i can sell it for only $5k, so it lost 5 times its value in only 1 month and platinum nevertheless has a share of responsibility in this problem.

    So are you asking $4000 or are you auctioning it off ?
    Whats the end date of the sale/auction ?
    Is there a BIN ?

    Hello Rob,

    I think that i was not clear.
    $4000 was the minimum sum which I would agree to sell my company based on the incomes of $4503.

    By manually checking the incomes for each account, I discovered that the incomes were rather of $5524.09. For this reason, I accept the offers until 20H today and then I will contact the person whom I think will take care of my customers.

    After the sale of my company, I will not return in the webhosting industry.

    how are you customers doing - do they know about the move? If you have lost so much after that issue, I wonder how many existing customers are in the process of moving away, making the amount you are asking indeed too much. There must be a risk discount factored in, as the customers may infact have a bad taste in their mouths. You are indeed in a precarious position.


    Best of luck.

    You as well as everyone else here knows exactly what happened. I rectified my company as well as myself from being slammed threw the mud with the whole Keith Mansfield // Peer1 incident. Could I have gotten anyones data back?? Possibly so if I was to sign a 1 year contract paying for the servers at full price (IE: the servers we sold with 4-12GB Ram would cost anywhere from $300.00 to $1,200.00+ per month -- NO ONE in their right mind would agree to pay $1200+ /month for 1 server for the same specs they can get elsewhere for nearly 1/3 the price.)

    Please do not blame me for what I was told was "legit" by a Peer1 Employee and then get screwed over by the reseller.

    Thank You and Good Luck with your sale.

    All the customers who wished to leave left and we closed their accounts. I did not retain anybody. Those which remains with us it's because they likes our services/price.
