    Making money off a server in 30 days?

    Here's the deal:

    I had a server that I was using to host my websites. I no longer need that server (I have other ones), but my hosting company told me that they require 30 days notice to cancellation.

    That means that I have an empty server lying around for 30 days, and I will still have to pay around $50 for it.

    So does anybody have any ideas on how I can monetize this server in the next 30 days to at least make up the $50 I'm losing from it? It has to be a fast moneymaker, nothing that surpasses 30 days time, nothing illegal, and this server has plenty of resources.

    Thanks

    If an IM guru is doing a product launch in the next 30 days, you could offer them server resources to host their videos and downloads.

    If I were you -- but you won't. I'd offer cheap hosting accounts and than simply refer the clients to your other host MyBBWebhost, just use that server as a 'trial'

    It could make some earnings, maybe not the total costs but if a client stays it will pay off later on.

    There's so little time that it is going to be hard to do much with it.

    Perhaps a publisher that is having trouble with their current host and needs a temporary solution or a back-up server.
