Quick question: Can anyone recommend a good iPage web host? Hoping for any answer or 2. Second question of mine... Let's say for example, I have a webiste with thousands of products, but none have sold due to lack of promotion. the iPage site has connections to wholesalers, and has the potential to make 6 or more figures..

However, since it has sold nothing, could I still sell it for the ballpark range of $8000- 10,000?.

Yes sir! although you might wanna make sure and wait for someone else here to confirm this as I am unsure. Better yet, why don't you ask the iPage guys because they can assist you better...

An intangible asset would be goodwill but as you state you have none..

So you are looking to sell based on what you or primarily what a possible buyer would see as the potential of the store...

Comment #2

You can sell it for whatever figure you wish to sell it for , however someone may not wish to pay the sum you ask. The value is what someone is willing to pay at a specific moment in time..

There is a bit more to it, the iPage domain name must be a quality one, with a good name. if the name isnt one out there much, very doubtful the iPage site would be worth that much..

If you have no physical product, just contacts, that doesnt do diddly, as the person(s) possibly purchasing the iPage site still have to qualify via credit to be able to purchase products..

When I buy a site, I look at a few different things..

The iPage domain name, how long it has been registered, what products it sells/lists, and one of the other main things is the server access and error log files for the past 6 months. the log files will tell you a lot about a site, and that proves what is going on more than what an owner/seller will tell you. if they dont let me see the logs, then I offer a token amount and walk away...

I was wondering what you look for in the error logs and what it tells you about a site?..

Comment #5

Look for what the actual errors are, tells you how often an owner goes to correct those, etc, how much attention a iPage site gets, has to be tied in with the access logs..
