Default established online file hosting website

Your name: mike
Your Email address: mike@servfiles.com
URL of the site: http://www.servfiles.com
Age of site: 2 years
Traffic statistics: 191,000 hits/downloads per month
Source of traffic: mostly forums
Asking price: $999
Gross and net revenue per month (Total): $0
Copyright status of the content on the site: all mine
Any other pertinent data:

I am selling my established file hosting website. It has no revenue, because I didn't bother putting any ads up on it. But you can if you wish!

It has 353 members and over 2.3 Million hits/downloads per year. This website is ~2 years old.

You can verify this traffic yourself by looking at my log file:

http://www.servfiles.com/temp/servfiles_log.zip 19MB zipped, 341MB unzipped.

Since the log file is so large, you will need a large file text reader, such as http://www.pcnet-online.com/downloads/large,edit.htm Don't try opening this in word or notepad, because your computer will most likely crash.

with file hosting sites an important question is what is the disk space usage and bandiwdth consumption.

Also how did you afford to host such a large file hosting service, if it generated $0 revenue for two years.

disk space usage is about 400-500mb. b/w fits in between 15-20gb per month. currently i have image compression on, so thats why the bandwidth is that low.

all this runs off a $10/mo shared hosting account. initially i made it so i could have a convenient way of hosting files instead of having to use ftp, but i decided to let other people sign up too, but never expected it to get so big.

since the hosting account came with lots of b/w, and i knew i would only use a little bit, it didn't cost me anything to let others use it.
