    Hi all. My site pictir (a high-resolution image hosting service) is over 4 months old, and has started growing rapidly. For just the first 12 days of August, the site has had almost 12,000 unique visitors, and almost 2.5 million hits on various images hosted through it.

    As much as I'd like to hold onto it and keep expanding it, I'd like to sell it to get some venture capital for some other project sites that I've had rolling around in my head. I thought I'd post here and get a few estimates on how much something like this might be worth. I've used siteworthchecker and other calculators like that, but I don't exactly trust their estimations.

    Sites sell on the basis of their monthly revenue. What have you earned from it till now?

    I checked your site out and uploaded a pic. I didn't see any advertising at all. How do you make money with it?

    It's all about revenue. Picture sites are pretty hard to monetize to keep up with server costs.

    I looked at your site...you should offer a search feature and show ads on search results and image pages. One way to monetize. Like the others said, w/o revenue it probably won't go for much.

    Server costs for a image site will be rather cheap. Dedicated server with 1TB of space will cost you around £30quid a month.

    I don't think Hostgator allows image hosting websites and hence your account has got suspended.
