1.Why do you want to sell this site?

[CIL] – At Compare Infobase Ltd., one of our business models involves the cultivation and sale of online businesses. We develop these online businesses using our own investments, basing them on lucrative business ideas. The project is evolved for anywhere between 1 and 10 years (based on how much return we expect, among other factors) and then sold at a premium once it becomes profitable. The purpose behind selling these sites is, therefore, the fulfillment of our business model.

2. Are you a broker?

[CIL] – We are not brokers. We are the owners of the website.

3. How many sites have you sold?

[CIL] – Over the last 4-5 years, we have sold more than 400 websites to our clients in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, South Africa, Egypt, Dubai, Maldives, Bhutan, Thailand, Bahrain, the Philippines, Singapore, and Australia. We can provide references from our clients on a case-by-case basis.

7. How does the website make money? Do you have any proof?

[CIL] – All of the websites listed for sale earn the majority of their profits from the Google AdSense program. Another source of income is to provide publishing role services to other media networks like Tribal Fusion, Kontera, Komli, etc. A few of our sites also run affiliate programs from various third party providers. We provide proof of earnings through screenshots and remote access technology such as GoToMyPC.

For sites costing USD $25,000 or greater, we can also accept escrow arrangements. Once a deal is finalized, we will send you all the details about possible payment modes.

10. What is included in the website sale package?

[CIL] – The sale of the website includes a transfer of ownership of the domain name and content (both textual and graphical) to the buyer. The buyer also gets full access to the FTP login and domain name control panel. The buyer may decide to keep the website hosted on the same server, or shift it to a new server. The ad content may change, depending on whether or not the buyer decides to change to a new server.

11. Does the sale come with a warranty or guarantee?

[CIL] – There is no warranty or guarantee associated with the sale of a website. However, if the buyer agrees to enter into a contract with Compare Infobase towards the maintenance and promotion of the project, then Compare provides a warranty in the form of stability and organic growth for the project.

12. What is the traffic like? Do you have any proof?

[CIL] – The traffic of an individual website depends on its age and size. Unique hits can vary between 100 per day to more than 65,000 per day. For details about the traffic of a website that interests you, please email kaushik@websiteshub.com

Proof of traffic is provided through statistics (powered by AWStats), which a prospective buyer may view after an NDA has been signed.

15. What technology do these websites use?

[CIL] – Most of the sites listed for sale have been developed on Linux platforms using HTML. They follow a directory structure, with individual files being moved and added to the proper folders. Forms on these websites are usually handled using PHP.

[CIL] – The maintenance charges for a website depend on the size of the project. They usually fall between USD $500 and USD $7,500 per month.

  • The NDA is signed and further details are provided, leading to the sale of the site
  • Due diligence is put in for the authentication of the provided data
  • Pricing negotiations are completed
  • A payment mode is finalized; the escrow process is finalized if applicable
  • Payment is received; the website is released from escrow, if applicable
  • The buyer receives control of the website and domain name within 48-72 hours
  • The Statement of Account is sent, and the transaction closed

The buyer is given a period of 30 days, during which he/she is free to switch the site to another server. If the buyer agreed to have Compare Infobase continue to host the site, then it will remain on our own server.

18. Who owns all these websites?

[CIL] – All the websites listed are 100% owned by Compare Infobase Limited and its subsidiaries.

19. What are the resources required to maintain a website?

[CIL] – Based on the size of the project, it can take anywhere from a third of a month to five months of work to retain the traffic and earnings that the site sees during the time of the sale. Many sites have enormous growth potential, and further resource investment can enhance revenue from the site beyond current levels.
