    Caught a name in the early hours today at around 1 am - the whois record has me as the owner but the domain still seems to point to the previous owners "for sale" page. Also email diversion does not work - some else answered my "testing e-mail".

    Domain is buscard.co.uk - seems very strange to me!

    I regged it through 123reg - never had any problems with them before.

    Anyone else has a similar experience and if so do you know what is the issue is?

    The only thing I can think of is that it previously regged or hosted by 123-reg.co.uk.

    Because the nameservers haven't been altered it's still show the original site.

    I'd change the name servers to sedoparking.com or something and change them back to 123-reg a few hours later - see what happens

    i have had this happen with a few domains bought via 123-reg.

    you might also find the domain is not listed in your CP (had this a few times too)

    i agree change the nameservers to something else and it should be fine.

    if in doubt email 123 technical (i find them quite helpful)
