Website Flipping

Hello,

I built a site with XsitePro but my computer crashed and I don't want to rebuild it, and I don't have a back up. I was wondering if I could still sell it on Flipper.com? Is there still a way for a buyer to use it without sending them my original software that I built it on? Not sure how selling websites all works.

This is the site I wanted to sell: http://registriesrepair.com/

Thanks for your support,
Mitch

Yes, you can sell websites without them having access to the software. The selling process is actually fairly basic, and it is all explained by Flippa.com - you can pretty much auction off your website like you were selling something on eBay.

I would recommend reading this Flippa Guest Post on transferring your website - http://flippa.com/blog/guest-post-transferring-your-new-website/?oauth_token=9ff30e8b5e92fc0b1b4515f845c81538&oauth_verifier=&flogin=1

You said that you don't have a back up of your website (and I assume you don't have XsitePro installed any more) I suggest that you also contact your current web hosting company and ask if this presents any problems for you selling your website.

Regards,

Sam
