Trying to get my old Forumotion domain name back

Post by oxthorxo on January 6th 2012, 9:40 pm

Can someone please link me or give me an answer on this. Couple years ago I paid for a domain name pheardomo.net here. I let my account expire and then purchased more credits to renew it but it wouldnt give me pheardomo.net back, said it was unavailable. So I had to go with pheardomo.org. Is there a way to get pheardomo.net back? It was established here on forumotion.


Also, when did forumotion start charging extra to take out ads. I thought once you paid for the domain they took them out.

It looks like the domain has been purchased by a third party, making it impossible for you to reach that particular domain. However, you are more than welcome to purchase the required amount of credits (1,600 I believe) and buy a new domain. Sorry about that. :/

I did buy a new domain, pheardomo.org. I highly doubt a third party bought pheardomo.net since its a made up word for our guild. My friend who owns pheardomo.com went ahead and rerouted it to my site.

Okay, you purchased pheardomo.org, meaning it will work with your forum that you bought it with. Your friend is redirecting pheardomo.com to your forum, excellent. However, you said in the first post:

Meaning, anyone was able to buy it. Companies will buy expired domains at mass at a cheap rate and slap ads all over them, assuming people will visit the page because it used to be a working domain. You will not be able to get this domain unless the owner of the domain lets it expire, and you properly re-purchase it. ForuMotion does not have control over pheardomo.net, as you let it expire.

Hello,

Looks like Godaddy owns the domain name now.
