My big concern as always is my clients. I think of them as my friends, despite the fact I have never met any of them!
If I could get some advice about selling or auctioning I would appreciate that too
If you offer the 'whole package' as a turn-key sale, then you're really limiting the potential buyers to those who are just starting out and want to buy a new domain name and website, etc....
.. which might not be best for your clients since they risk suffering with the new host who perhaps might not know what he/she is doing.
Your best bet, if you want what is "best" for your clients.. is to sell to a reputable existing host who will provide service to them for whatever term they have already paid, etc...
Try the offers and requests forums here, or the ones over at webhostingtalk.com and you'll find plenty of similar sales. I'd say "on average" you can ask for 6 month profit.
