One of our server was hacked recently.
We formatted the hard disk, reinstalled the OS and all the accounts were restored from a backup that was just 4 days old.
But we have decided to sell our hosting company to someone who can take good care of our customers as far as server security is concerned.
We have provided top quality support to our customers over the last one year as you will see from our support forums after you have signed the NDA.
However, this hacking incedent has left us realizing that we may not be sufficiently competent in certain key areas like server security.
We are looking to sell this company to someone who's been in the business over 1 year and has a proven track record of good customer support.
We reserve the right to reject any bids based on the reviews we come across about your company.
If you are interested, please send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
to receive a link to the NDA.
Once you have signed and faxed it or emailed a scanned copy of it to us, we'll provide you with a URL where we've put up details about our company and the email address to contact us with your auction bids and questions.
That URL will be updated often with some of the questions that are asked of us so we don't have to repeat them in each mail.
We'll also mention the current highest bid at that URL.
Here are a few details about the company:
yearly income: $16,926 (most customers pay yearly, but a very few do pay monthly)
yearly profit from domain name registration: $1004
yearly expenditure: $4,404 for 3 P4 servers (with HT)
