Site For Sale
I started this site many years ago as a personal project. I made tools that I wanted, and I’ve made enough money to cover the server and make billions of isk. The challenge of running both a very popular server as well as the challenge of writing code to process a huge amount of data has been an amazing experience.
In the last 2-3 years my life has changed substantially and I haven’t been able to play the game nor do anything beyond basic updates to the site. Many people still love and use this site, so I don’t want to just shut it down. I’d like it to go to someone who wants to continue its development and make it greater.
I’m selling the whole thing: code, database, domain, blog, development info, and the eve-marketdata character in game.
The cost is $500.00US. I’m putting a price on it because I want to make sure the site goes to someone with some skin in the game. It also has the potential to make that money back fairly quickly, or to expand on the money making options. The site is currently cash-flow-positive, with server expenses around $30/month and income around $90.
