About The Business:
HotFiles.ws is a file hosting service that provides free and premium online storage solutions which meets all requirements of all users and potential users.
To ensure service quality we have developed a nice and user-friendly web design for people of all skill levels. We have a partnership with affiliates that are being rewarded for bringing traffic to the website.
The website runs on the very popular file hosting script (XFS), which has been modified for better performance, improving site administration.
We designed our website in a way to drive up all the users. Every day a number in between 300-450 new users are joining our website.
Below we have some screenshots which demonstrate that the statistics are real:
- Admin area showing the number of registered users,
- PayPal earnings from premium sales,
- Screenshots from Histats showing traffic statistics.
The income generated by our website comes from premium sales and advertisements. There are more than 50 premium sales each month and thousands of pages that are being monetized by Advertising Sponsors, including CPM, PPC. Premium sales are processed through a reseller which is a secure and solid payment method. New payment methods can be implemented for premium accounts sales (we can give you some suggestions regarding this).
Using these methods in December the site has generated over $1,800 in revenue.
The website is designed to increase the premium sales because we have a set of limitations for users that are not Premium. Currently free and registered users have a slow download speed and they need to wait before they can start a download. When a user buys a Premium account every limitation is removed which allows the user to download files instantly at full speeds (download speeds can be configured for each user type).
1. Server Cost:
To improve the traffic quality of the website we acquired 3 servers which are hosted in Germany:
- One main server - 80 EUR/month (which equals to around $104/month USD)
- 2 secondary file servers - 40 EUR/month each (equals to $54/month each)
Currently only 60% of the disk space is being used therefore purchasing new servers is not necessary.
2. Affiliate payments:
We strongly cooperate with affiliates and reward them for all the traffic brought. We offer a higher amount of money for countries that convert to premium sales better, meanwhile poorer converting countries are paid less.
For each $1 paid to affiliates there is a profit in between 60%-80%, meaning $1.60-$1.80.
Currently there are no other expenses. We spent a lot of time in promoting this site and providing support to users and affiliates. The work that we provided until now will allow the website a continuous growth in the same rapid rate that has occurred since we launched the site.
Time Required To Run This Business:
Thanks to the advanced script, only around 1 hour per day is needed to run this business. The only thing left is to delete the files that received complaints and answer to emails received from users and affiliates.
Because of the reliability of the XFS script, this is considered to be the most advanced script, therefore allowing a limitless growth.
After Sale Support:
We will offer technical support for 14 days to the new owner, and run through every aspect of running this business.
We do not want to sell the site because of the spectacular growth, but we have the opportunity to develop an offline business that needs additional funds. Through selling the website we will be able to cover a part of the needed funds.
What Does The Sale Include?
- The full website along with all 20,000 (and counting) registered users.
- The domain name HotFiles.ws.
- The full licensed script along with the purchased upgrades (modules).
- Full access to the servers, including access to server administration control panel.
- We offer 14 days of full support to ensure a smooth takeover.
We can accept payments via Escrow.
