UPDATE

I now own the www.boatsandoutboards4sale.co.uk domain. It's just been transferred to me. Do I need to do anything else to make sure I keep it ?

The price.... Mooted at 2,000 + VAT. Then it changed to I'll swap it for an outboard, I offered a Seagull - we settled on 50 + Vat. I think it's worth it, if not for the prevention of future sabotage (not that i think that was going to happen) more than value of the actual domain

I'm glad the domain was owned by who it was. Anybody else and I'd have had no chance of getting it. I think they valued their own business more than my domain and as such I could use what I knew as leverage

So now I'm going to take a week to get up to date with things then will start to build a site.

Does it get any easier ?

You will have to keep re-registering it with your hosts on its aniversary if you want to retain it

Nice one , glad it was resolved.
From what I have seen and been offered, you are now likely to get numerous calls offering SEO work to get you on the left side of the google front page 1(the organic side) as opposed to the right side google ads.
Dont be fooled by promises as stated the google enhancements take a lot of effort. The main area first of all is to get a good easy flowing and easy loading site. The drive should be to select your keywords for the ads campaign and build on the site to gain organic status.

I use justhost.com for my hosting, extremely happy with their service. Being a noob to the whole thing I had loads of trouble trying to get set up but their support people were really helpful and prompt with their replies.

the Whois records have not been updated yet... that may just be a time delay thing (I'd guess they take a day or two at least) but you might want to investigate if there is anything you need to do to make sure Nominet know the domain has been transferred.

That was my concern too. I've got it in my account though with the option to work on it. I'll check it again in a few days.

It was transferred into 123.reg so does that still apply ?

yes - who is the registrant? if its not genetic you will need to move it in the process that polwart suggested.

123-reg you can change the constant details only but not the actual registrant ... best going through nominet who are the uk controller of domains.

I have took back domains for people via nominet when I had given them up to 3rd party for few years with the consent of the new owners, since there webmaster died!
