    Hi there! I owned a server and I am running out of ideas on what to do with my server. Tried hosting seedbox, website, game server and vmware but doesn't earn much because of the competitive market. Any ideas? or guide me on what to do with my server to earn money. Thanks in advance peace.

    8 static ip
    Windows 2012 R2
    Dual processor Octo Core Xeon 2650 2Ghz

    You could run some Xrumor, GSA, SENuke or similar link building software on it and sell the outcoming lists.. there are lot's of BST's around for that.

    Wow... that's one beast of a server. Why are you paying for it if you're not using it?

    1. Start a web hosting service using Plesk/cPanel/etc or shared VPS service. Competitive market as you said, but I used to do this for friends for cheap to subsidize server costs. If you're paying for it anyways, then you can easily charge less than market prices.
    2. JV with someone and setup some web API/web application (Software as a Service) that you can generate money with. If you can come up with something unique and valuable, could be very profitable.

    Heh... I'd love to have a server like that, but now that the question's asked, I have no idea what I'd do with it either. Too much power, nothing to make use of it all.

    Start a shared VPS service with it.
