Facts and Figures
Webhosting is our business. We host customers websites and register their domains. We specialize in wordpress but host almost all platforms.
How does your business make money?
By selling various hosting packages and leasing dedicated and virtual servers to customes. We also register domains and charge various add-on fees as needed by our customers.
Why should someone buy this business?
For someone who is already proficient in the workings of linux or web hosting in general this is a great source or recurring revenue with the opportunity to expand only limited by your effort.
Of our hundreds of customers we average less than one support ticket per day, which can include a technical query, sales question, or advice in general. So this can be a very hands off operation.
For an existing web hosting company looking to expand with an acquisition, the opportunity is even greater as infrastructure costs can be reduced and you gain a chunk of not very needy customers with organic growth opportunities.
How can the future owner improve this business?
Their are options for cheaper infrastructure costs or to consolidate infrastructure.
The SEO and social networking aspects of the business are basically dormant so a new owner can use that as an unchanneled avenue.
There are many very active web hosting forums to establish a presence on.
Many successful webhosts provide development services and pre-packaged websites that are a great lure for customers in need of web hosting services.
