LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

Ekire.net Is for Sale - You Don't Want It But It Seems Someone Does

EkireWant a ready-made hosting company?

Word on the street is that you can buy Ekire for about $3,000-4,500.  You’ll get “1200 users, 140 active servers, and almost 300 paying users”.

Unfortunately the operation is running at a significant loss.  Apparently the servers are entirely rented, which means a pricey expense every month that eats significantly into the thin margins on those 300 users.

And those “paying users” may be people who have prepaid and now are owed a year’s service.  300 paying but only 140 “active”?

Reported revenue is $280/month vs $350/month in server costs alone.  (The “140 active servers” are apparently the number of actively used VPSes – he doesn’t have a fleet of 140 servers).

Oh, and there’s also $150/month in an /24 lease.

Plus colo, network, WHMCS, Solus, fees, taxes..

Nevertheless, the owner posted that he’d “gotten +20 proposals and I’m choosing between them now.”
