Advice on selling a webhosting company

Hello,

I need some advice on this. I currently run a service where the bulk of the revenue is coming from renting out dedicated servers. I have a few racks at a datacenter and its earning a decent amount for 1 person.

But currently I am getting awfully tired due to numerous personal issues being pressed on me...

The business itself has a revenue of around S$60-70K annually with about S$30-40K worth of hardware and software licenses for the dedicated server part alone. And is doing quite alright with some long term users and reliable resellers.

If I am considering to sell off the business how much do people usually ask for?

It also has some corporate shared hosting clients and a large base of free hosting users that is used to either do advertising or run ads on the network.

If you have sold such a business before, are there places I advertise or people I need to talk to to get the process done?

Thanks for the advice.

A forum like this usually have a buy and sell section. As I'm new here I don't know whether you can publish your ad here or not. Try webhostingtalk.com

I have actually listed an advert here already and is proceeding in the sales.
Can't do it in webhostingtalk.com because need a local person or company to take over due to colo and dedicated servers are here in Singapore.

There is what you call "Business Valuation".

If you’re preparing to sell your business, you'll first need to know how much your company is worth by conducting a business valuation. It will give you, your investors and potential buyers a good idea of what your business’s value is by looking at both tangible assets like real estate and cash, as well as intangible assets like intellectual property.

I think without a clear or good business valuation its hard to sell a company because mainly those investors or people who wants to buy business special if they'll be spending a very big amount of money.. they wanted to be sure what they're buying...
