    Small Hosting Company for the Right Buyer

    Looking to sell our small hosting business (16 clients) to the right buyer.

    We've built a small local client base but would like to concentrate
    on other areas of our business. However, the buyer must be a reputable
    firm that can provide the same level of uptime/service that we've
    provided for these customers, which is to say high uptime and responsive service.

    Ideally, buyer would take over our VPS account to minimize downtime; from there, buyer could migrate to their own systems.

    Is a signed NDA is required?

    A signed NDA would be required for this sale.

    What control panel do the clients use?

    Plesk 8.6

    What are the plan sizes, BW limits and costs?

    About 30gb of that bandwidth was used for backups; server is backed up and
    the backup is shipped off to another server nightly.

    All (or nearly all) of these clients use our OpenSRS

    Thanks for the clarification on BIN. In short, there really is no BIN for this sale. The sale is more about making sure we find the right buyer who can execute and provide reliable service for these customers than it is about finding the highest bidder.

    That said, we've been working in the range from $750 to $1500. But I can't stress enough that it's more important for us to feel good about the buyer and their network than it is to get an extra $250 from the sale. We don't have any incredibly urgency on the sale; the customers are stable, the servers are stable, yet we'd like to concentrate on more profitable areas of our business.

    We'll accept less money for the clients if the buyer can show their reliability, redundancy, ability to provide excellent support, and hosting experience, among other factors. We would likely sell in the hundreds of dollars for *great* provider who will guarantee a painless transition for our clients.

    Oh, and for clarification, even though I said there is no BIN, if someone offers $2,000,000 USD then I think we might be able to work something out.
