    You think its easy? to rent it someone, I would like to advise contact provider and ask them, maybe be they can help if want money back. I think its not easy to earn just from a servers, If you are not sure how you can use.

    Hi Rony,

    Its not easy to make money from the server instantly unless you find a needy person who would be interested in purchasing the service from you. I would personally suggest you to contact the hosting service provider and ask them to cancel the server and provide refund for the remaining months.

    Unless you know or find someone that is in need of a window server like this then your going to have little bits of problems.

    You'd be best off contacting your provider and see if they can give you your remaining credit back.

    Try starting a business like offering back up space to sites or business. Do you have any skills with web programming or development? You can create sites for people and businesses and charge them a fair amount if money.

    Cancel your account with server provider and get back your money.
    Monthly billing is advised for Dedicated Server Plans.

    Subscription cancellation and money back is the best option for you I think, or you can try to sell vps

    Windows server is slightly more difficult, if it's running on Linux, you could easily purchase a cPanel license and offer web hosting service to a small community.

    I think, I have to agree with 7Host, if might be better to cancel the subscription and see if you could get back as much money as possible.

    I don't think a web hosting company would give you back 9 months on a dedicated service you signed up, over 75% don't even give you what they state on there slogans and websites unlimited everything rubbish.

    ask for a refound or start renting some VPS, which will give you monthly income (not saying it's the easiest way)
