    Selling Shared/Reseller Clients

    Hello all,

    As we have started VPS hosting, we find it more successful and profitable than Shared Hosting and our VPS clients are growing every day, therefore we are selling all of our shared/reseller clients, seeing that we'd like to focus our company on VPS hosting. We tried to sell our hosting company quite some time ago, however the buyer dropped out, therefore we have just kept the servers up since, and haven't had much time to promote it.

    Here is a breakdown of our clients...

    RESELLER ACCOUNTS
    2GB/20GB $4.00/month
    2GB/20GB $5.00/month
    2GB/20GB $5.00/month
    2GB/30GB $7.99/month
    4GB/40GB $8.00/month
    2GB/60GB $8.99/month
    2GB/60GB $8.99/month
    2GB/60GB $8.99/month
    2GB/60GB $89.99/year

    NORMAL HOSTING ACCOUNTS
    400MB/10GB $5.00/month
    400MB/15GB $7.99/month
    1GB/25GB $10.95/month
    512MB/20GB $49.99/year

    All of the clients are hosted on a cPanel/WHM system.

    Monthy Gross: $80.90
    Yearly Gross: $1110.78 [($80.90*12)+$89.99+$49.99]

    What's included in this deal?
    - The site design for www.spoilthost.com -- I paid $70 for someone to design it for me.
    - The 'spoilthost.com' domain.

    I'd prefer it if you took the server as a whole, however you're more than welcome to transfer the accounts from me.

    I will only accept EFT for this sale (ie. no PayPal)

    BIN: $750 (I think this is a nice number, seeing as it is below the yearly gross, however it is negotiable)
    Starting Bid: $200

    I AM ONLY LOOKING FOR SERIOUS BUYERS!

    Regards,

    Jason

    According to LT's RTG graphs, the server uses around 50-100GB a month. Last month the server used 68.2GB in total.

    How much time have they been with you?
    Some have been with me since I officially started in 2005.

    What do you mean by EFT?
    Electronic Funds Transfer. You transfer funds from your bank account to mine. We will also accept Money Order, Cheques or Bank Cheques.

    How do those customers pay?
    PayPal

    Thanks,

    Jason

    Not more than 22GB..

    [email protected] [~]# df -h
    Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    /dev/hda2 74G 22G 49G 31% /
    /dev/hda1 99M 14M 81M 15% /boot
    none 505M 0 505M 0% /dev/shm
    /dev/hdc1 76G 32G 41G 44% /backup
    /usr/tmpMnt 2.0G 37M 1.9G 2% /tmp

    What are the payment methods
    PayPal, as explained above.

    and when are they up for renewel?
    The dates do vary, however at this time I do not think releasing this is necessary, as I will have to do some deep digging through my PayPal account (I've changed billing systems three times.. WHMAP > MB > ClientExec), so unless you really need this then I will not give it at this stage.

    Please let me know if you have more questions.

    Regards,

    Jason

    A few questions -

    - How many total domains hosted?

    - Is the server leased or owned - if leased, with whom?

    - Are you including any billing system license?

    Also - I see you are Australia-based - to be sure, your numbers are USD, correct?

    Thanks.

    Mike

    I'm assuming he means gross as stated, not net. Which would mean he's underwater on the box.(or not if it's a VPS)

    Looks like it's been 12 or so days, since you've been waiting for payment.

    Didn't see this thread at the time of auction but would interested in discussing a fast purchase, if the current bid falls through.
