After long deliberation I've decided to sell the following websites...

www.thecornsnake.co.uk
www.thekingsnake.co.uk
www.theroyalpython.co.uk
www.therainbowboa.co.uk
www.thehognosesnake.co.uk
www.theamphibian.co.uk
www.thereptilian.co.uk

Unfortunately I do not have time to work on the websites as I would like and the day has come where I feel they should go to a better home.

Over the years I have been very reluctant to put advertising on the forums and the websites - out of respect to the sites users. However to run so many websites on a dedicated server solely on donations (more so my own pocket) is proving impossible.

The websites do get massive amounts of traffic and they rank extremely high (the top of the organic search engines for most related search terms) so in the right hands (and ones with more time than mine) could be made into a highly profitable business.

The sites were set up by me over the years as two hobbies combined (snake keeping and website design) they have been up and running for almost 10 years with only a few minor interruptions due to server relocation.

Anyone with interest in purchasing the domain names and current website content please contact me at snakesites@lewy.co.uk - serious inquiries only please.

Like I say I want the sites to go to the right people (preferably all together as a set) over the years I've spent thousands of pounds of my own money keeping these sites alive... in the right hands someone could make thousands from them. If you are interested and would like more details (traffic stats, technical details) please get in touch.

I'm just gauging interest at the moment. eventually I will probably set up an auction for the websites.

It'll be sad to see the sites go after so long, but I really haven't got the time they deserve.

Over the years I have met some truly amazing and lovely people through the forums, many of which are now true friends. I'd like to just say thanks to everyone that made that journey and the cornsnake/king/royal etc communities so great! I hope that whoever does purchase the websites will continue to keep that bustling and friendly community going.

Special thanks to Alison Wolstenholme, Darren Burkhill, Piers Taverner, Graeme MacIntosh, Lee Banfield, a33272, HannahB, Phil BennettKehhlyr, Kellog, lucifer, matty18714, Paulusworm, sexychef, Sta~ple, Tizzy, deadmansfinger, magneticblue, Triangulum (I know I've missed a few of you some somewhere - mods please feel free to tag/share with anyone I've stupidly missed) and everyone else who's been involved over the years across all the sites. Thanks to all the members - I hope to find someone who will keep the forums going as they have done all these years.

Major thanks to my dear Karen Kazerella, I'm not sure the sites would have carried on so long without your dedication to both me and kingering out of hand forum members ;)

Kind Regards,
Lewy - Owner and founder of www.thecornsnake.co.uk

- I'm just gauging interest at the moment - the sites will carry on as normal until I have organised what I am going to do... I'm hoping to find someone who has the passion and time to make these sites as good as the should be (even if they tag on a online shop to make it profitable as well as the community hub for snake owners it is now) There's lots to think about.

Thanks again everyone!

Lewy

I've absolutely taken this wonderful site for granted, never thinking about the incredible amounts of hard work (and money) that go on behind the scenes to set it up and keep it all running so smoothly. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Without the site and the forum I would never have had the courage to get my snakes and my life would be the poorer for it. Thanks Lewy xxx.

Hey lewy, I'm so sad that I have only just found this site and you may not have it much longer. Ive not been here long but this is an amazing and really useful site and I wish I had found it earlier when I first started keeping snakes. I have sent you an email..feel free to ignore it if I'm not what your looking for..:)
