You would make more money going into the hosting business and charging for website hosting than mining Smiley (or CPU coin mining)
This sounds like a good idea.

I can't think of any CPU only coins off the top of my head right now, but if you could use these servers to offer people a service (ex. VPN) then you might be able to make some money off of them.

I can't offer services where people have to log in, access etc, it's too much to maintain for what I have setup. The environment is not built for remote access, it is built only to offload/backup/fail over our hosting business.

We already do hosting, that's why I have the setup.

Some CPU coins used to be pretty good profits (PTS) and a few others. Then trade them crap coins into BTC

PTS is almost dead now. I don't know what the CPU coin scene is now, I think FTC moved to an algo which is CPU optimized.

Well, I appreciate everyone's input and I guess the answer is to find something else to do with the hardware so thanks for your input.

Good luck to all.
