Seller's Notes

Overview is a well established domain and popular web destination which currently hosts a free email checking service that includes many of the features offered by the top three fixed e-mail clients.

The website and domain offer an excellent opportunity to acquire a fully functioning service with a  search engine/type-in traffic-friendly name and enormous growth potential.

At its peak, generated nearly $500,000 in revenue. The true potential of lies not in its current revenue, but in a name that’s ready to be taken to the next level. Instantly memorable and strongly connected with the Internet, is an ideal name for any corporation seeking to launch or brand a new service.  With the ever-increasing number of email accounts, the statement, "I need to check My Email", is on the lips and minds of millions of internet users around the globe, 24 hours a day. 


Future Potential for is perfectly appointed for anyone wishing to realize immediate profit by running the site as it stands. Using the existing branding, with its eye-catching logo and beautifully designed web pages, the buyer will have ample opportunity to build up SEO and market the site as a true free standalone email service.

Alternatively, could easily be added to a company's existing online portal, providing clients with email services, and boosting brand awareness.  Further opportunities for branding the domain could include the introduction of such email-related verticals as email marketing, email security, and corporate email.

Though some might say the free email market is saturated, there are, in fact, only three major players:  Google, Hotmail, and Yahoo. These sites do not always market actively for new users. In 2010, was able to buy PPC traffic on Google and Bing for 5 cents a click and signed up over 400,000 new clients. 


Why are we selling? 

Set up in 2010 as a free email service, is currently inactive. The company has recently moved its resources to social media and cloud based projects and is no longer developing or providing support for At its peak, generated nearly $500,000 in revenue from the co-registration market, AdSense display ads, and CPA pop-unders. However, with the decline of the co-registration market, and the resulting loss of revenue from the site, we decided to focus on our other sites. The service has not been actively managed for 18 months, hence its current status as a depreciating product. The site currently only offers a remote pop3/imap email checking service, no free email services are provided.


Technology and Costs

The service currently runs on two FreeBSD LAMP Unix servers housed in our datacenter rack in Columbus, OH. The email software engine that runs the service is a proprietary solution, Surgemail from

Because we host our own servers it is difficult to calculate the total running costs of the site. Suffice to say, the servers that are currently running are overkill for the remaining users. The service, as is, could easily be operated on a small hosting account and/or on Amazon's cloud hosting services.


How is Revenue Currently being Generated?

Currently, revenue is being generated by Google AdSense advertising only. In recent months – and despite the fact that continues to operate without active support or optimization ­– AdSense revenues from the site have been approximately $1300. From time to time we generate an additional $500-$750 per month by using pop-unders on the site to cross-promote the company’s other products.


What is included in the sale?

The domain name, all logos, site design and the software required to run the service. The sale does not include hardware or hosting services. On completion of the sale, the buyer will have 30 days to move the property to a new hosting location.


Additional Revenue Details

For us, the running costs of are negligible because we run the service on generic white box servers housed in our datacenter rack along with the rest of the company’s infrastructure. All of our current revenue is generated from AdSense.

Additional Traffic Details

At present our traffic comes from SEO and returning users.  The site receives 4-5 thousand visitors per day.  We rank very highly for the terms "check email" and "my email". On average, we receive 2000 visitors per day from organic search engine queries and something in the region of 30,000 active users who login to check their remote pop3/imap email accounts.
