Seller's Notes

whatversion.net  is a 6 year old small passive income website. 

Technology

The site is built in html and is not using any cms (it's not on wordpress - just old school html), there are only 15 pages and they all have little content and some javascript code.

The website hasn't been updated for many years. It's completely passive income at this point. 

$3,315.40 in adsense revenue since Nov 2013 when I acquired it - about 3.5 years

$836.61 adsense revenue in past 12 months

Recent feedbacks from Buyers:

  • "The Seller was really helpful and answered all my queries on time. Yes, i would be looking forward to do more transactions with him.."  - gavalla 
  • DomainMagnate is a great and experienced seller, and everything went smooth. I highly recommend this seller to anyone looking for a high-quality site. I would definitely buy again through them. - ntat 

F.A.Q.

BUSINESS

Is this website newbie friendly?

Yes! In fact this is the perfect website for a newbie, if this is your first ever website purchase. You can learn some basic html in just a few hours and be able to edit the website content. The topic is simple enough that anyone can maintain it. No seo has ever been done and there are no social pages. So there are plenty of things you can do in order to increase traffic.

The adsense ads are also not optimized - most pages only have 1 adsense ad. You try different combinations, colors and sizes of ads to find the optimal one and learn more about adsense optimization meanwhile.

Please briefly describe the business model

once every few months I check the adsense stats to make sure everything is running smoothly

When was the business established?

2011

Why is the business being sold?

Due to focus on other bigger projects I do not pay attention to this website, so decided to sell it instead to someone who can work on it and grow it further. 

Are there any skills / knowledge required to successfully run this business?

Not really, however knowing basic html and having a google adsense account would be helpful

TECHNICAL

Where is the site hosted and does this need to change after purchase?

 The site is hosted on a cpanel hosting,I will transfer it to the buyer's hosting account and help set everything up

MISCELLANEOUS

Do you guarantee revenue?

Absolutely not! Website investments are highly risky, you should not be investing more than you can afford to lose. I don't provide any guarantees about future performance, anyone who does is most likely lying to you, only past revenue figures and data are available.

Due to neglect and lack of time, also to reduce my website portfolio and raise funds to buy a house

I had a few questions concerning what you need to run this website if this is your first time ever buying a website:

1. you will need to get a hosting account to host the website - any cheap shared linux hosting account will do. You'll also need to regiater an account at uniregistry.com to transfer the domain (it's free)
2. You'll need to get and adsense account - https://support.google.com/adsense/answer/9724
3. learn some basic html to be able to edit the website https://www.w3schools.com/html/html_intro.asp

that's all.

@casinonews - Not sure what you're asking? I never bought any ads to promote the website if that's what you mean.
