$190 in adsense and $375 in text links....are both for 4 months?

How did you get text link ads? Private sale or marketplace like text-link-ads?

Both freehost and paid host running off the same reseller account? If I don't need your reseller account, will you accept a lower price?

Is WHMCS owned or leased (not clear from your description)?

How do free host users sign-up?

How have you been getting clients?

$375 are from text link ads for past 4 months but $190 in adsense is from Nov. 06.

Text link ads are private sold and not using any network ads. This way i can choose which ads to show up and also the price.

Both freehost and paid are off same reseller. You can opt not to take reseller. Price shall be lower in that case. It shall be offers above $375.

WHMCS license is a leased one prepaid for entire year in advance. I don't have to worry about it getting renewed monthly because reseller i got it from does that automatically and is a Certified Reseller for WHMCS.

Free host users submit application (post in forum) explaining why they be considered and how they plan to use space? Once reveiwed by staff, they are allowed to proceed to step 2,where they submit their info and choice of subdomain. Step2 is an automated form. Staff creates account from info. submitted in the step2 form. Staff creates accounts using WHMCS.

Zeeblo has been online since 2005 and despite a crash in Oct last year, it gets clients from word of mouth, posting in forums and older members. Thing is not everyone gets approved. So, only ones whose application sounds interesting get approved and hosted thereby reducing probability of getting abusers and similar.

Let me know if any other info. is required.

How much space/bandwidth is being used by both free and paid accounts? I have a 10/100 reseller account that is not being used. Will you assist with moving to my reseller?

Are paid accounts automated using whmcs?

How long are the text links going to be there for? do they pay you using paypal?

The sites of interest on zeeblo - are they paid links? Do you expect links to your other websites to stay?

That reseller should be fine. I am using 15/250 reseller as of now and it isn't half full in actual useage.
I'd suggest you to keep my reseller as its already prepaid untill Feb. 2008 and that will give you time to move accounts or keep them there.

Unfortunately, i don't have time to manage or run the hosting business, thats why i am selling it. I can help you as much as i can. I'll help transfer of assets and explain the things as required for you to manage it.

Yes, paid accounts are automated thru WHMCS and created upon realisation of first payment.

Text links would be there for maximum three months. Most of them phase out in September. Yes, they paid via PayPal.

Sites Of Interest are paid links. No, I don't expect you to keep links to my other sites. Thats entirely your wish. If links stay, other sites will hold link back to this site, if not, they wouldn't.

Let me know if any other info. is required.
