Hey,

I've had the bid for 1.8 times the value of the yearly hosting plans, and have been considering it for the past 3 days. As for the hosting plan; well, I hold true to my words, and I promised to get more than just 6 new accounts for the buyer. Am I selling a liability...YES....all hosts have a liability to host their customers after they have paid...many hosting companies have sold off their customers in order to hold true to this, and I am doing the same.

Personally, I'd jump at the offer of 1.8x if I were you...

Hey,

Yes I am a college student; what did you make me out to be. By the way, we're pretty pleased at the 1.8x, but we're just checking around a few more times.

Can't blame a fella for trying. Good luck with your sale.

I've posted my own reply to this thread here:
http://forums.webhostdir.com/showthr...0848#post30848

This looks like a kid who started a hosting "company" and wants to hold back as much information about it until after the sale. You can read my (very lengthy) reply over at WebHostDir via the link above. He is using this thread at HostingDiscussion as a selling point over there!

Good luck with the sale.

To the buyer of this company: When this business fails for you, give me a call. I'd be happy to sell you another business making fertilizer. It's very simple and has the potential to make you "hundreds of thousands per year". You just crap into your hand and head over to your customer's lawn. Presto! Flowers. I'll even start you off with several pounds of it to get things going.

I disagree. There are certain things that are just not right, and tricking people deperate to be financially free is pretty low. It ranks right up there with a politician.
