Hi all,

I'm a web designer and have been hosting my clients websites on a dedicated server for the last few years.

Off the top of my head I have approx 20 websites hosted and get about $7000 annually for hosting them.

I'm currently looking at ways to exit the hosting business because I want to be able to go on holiday without having to think about whether my server is working correctly or not. I'm not cut out for server management.

I guess I'm just looking for suggestions for how to proceed.

I could just recommend my clients purchase hosting with someone like freeparking - but it seems a waste to just give it all away. It took some time to build up to that # of sites and it's good passive income for someone who finds hosting easy.

Has anyone ever sold hosting on before?

Any idea's welcome.
Tom

I'm guessing there'll be a bunch of people in this forum that would be keen to take over from you (me included.)

If I was you, I'd be looking to get a reasonable return on the investment you've made, but at the same time you would want whoever takes over to treat your customers with the same respect and importance that you have over the last few years.

Good luck.
