    I would try and buy this site, but I think its worth a lot more :p

    I would probably start a hosting company, probably specialising in forum hosting, because I am knowledgeable in that area :)

    Do popular forums really to for that much? If a forum was making enough money to make that back, I doubt they would sell it ;)

    But hey, it might actually work :)

    Honestly, I would do webhosting, use the funds to take over existing companies, as well as investing in a few racks in a datacenter.

    Let me quote my favorite author/investor: "An investment operation is one which, upon thorough analysis promises safety of principle and an adequate return. Operations not meeting these requirements are speculative". In other other words if you have that kind of money, do not make fast decisions. For example you want to start a dry cleaning business, you must do the homework well. All businesses are based on one major thing location, location, location.
    For an offline business you can start a franchise. There are many and all kind of franchises out there that probably you can start in your area with few to zero competition. The benefits of franchises are that they will provide you the whole business model and will help you a lot with the start up process.
    If you want, you can check in the internet the possible franchise offers in you area.
    I would also suggest stock investing, but if you don't know what you are doing, the risks are huge. Take Care and good luck! :)

    I would either buy a website that was established or I would build one from scratch and then spend the money on traffic and marketing so that it would go into profit much quicker.

    It just depends of the time I wanted to spend it and what I was working on at the time. As sometimes it is down to having the time to do it!

    day trading - but not alone for yourself and only if you have one (1) reliable partner. my experience is that you don't need to sell anything and the market can not be bigger!

    It is really a good amount but as per offline Indian market it just a fine amount as you know leasing or buying office space / property, setting up a team & systems is quit high.

    Here are the few thing you can do to secure your money with getting good returns:

    1) Invest some funds with sure returns and amount security. i.e, mutual funds, Fix Deposit etc they to not pay high but amount is secured.

    However, The most likeable is from a real estate group that offers 50% returns on your investment after 2 years.

    I mean they hold your funds minimum for 2 years and on the very first day of 3rd year you will get 50% of your deposited fund as interest.

    They have a minimum lost of 20 lacs and you get 30 lacs after 2 years.

    OR

    You can invest in any upcoming real estate project with 50 - 50 plan. Book any property worth b/w 50 - 52 lacs where you have to pay only 25-26lacs upfront to book the property and rest at the time of allotment. For example is you book a property of 1100 sq ft at the rate of 4500 INR/sq ft ith allotment time after 2 years, you can easily expect the gain of 1000 INR/sq ft within 2 year. So flip it will the increased rates. You will easily safe upto 11 lacs within two years.


    2) Regarding Online Investment:

    You can buy any forums/website with good adsense or other revenue b/w $2000 - $5000 every month for $10000 - $15000 (600000 - 900000 INR). Preferred Adsense.


    So If I were at your place and have 6000000 INR with me I would have invest like:

    20 lacs fix deposit with company with assured return of 30 lacs after two years

    20 - 25 lacs to book a property in upcoming project of a good builder like: Jaypee, Logic and specially is area like Noida extension

    & remaining 15 - 20 lacs in 2 - 3 online project with some returns.

    Therefore at the end of two years I will have 60 lacs back from the real estate sector (property + investment) + all the earning from sites in my pocket, also site are there standing for you.

    You can take more advantages by flipping those sites after two years with your revenue proofs & previous buyers revenue proofs YOU WILL get more value website than the price you bought at.

    So in my opinion you can turn your 60 lacs into 90lacs - 1 crore+ within two years with no risk.

    If you have any question than please feel free to contact.

    Thanks !!

    I will start a land sale or invest on other scar resources. So it is an offline business.

    As others said, I also thought about web hosting business. But it is a money consuming business. You have to pay to support team, data center, invest on natural disasters, prevent from DDOS attacks, fraud and so on. It will take time to get the return of investment.
    eCommerce site may be good alternative if you are thinking about an online business.

    But personally I will not do an online business from such amount of money.

    The best thing you may do at the moment is to buy GOLD , gold price at the moment is at the bottom, and a lot of people are buying gold right now as it is a great opportunity of investment.

    If this is your first forex investment I will recommend don't do it, statistically most of the first time investors blow up their first account :)
