Solved Change Domain Name

Post by Bignuggs on January 22nd 2012, 12:08 pm

I really don't have time to troll thru all the posts so here's my question.
When I created my forum, I used a domain name from Forumotion but it is a shortened version of the full domain name, it would not accept the full name. I already have 4 domain names that are registered, so how can I change the domain name of my forum so people can search for the forum using the full name.
All help will be greatly appreciated.

I guess a custom name is what I'm looking for. it's currently
http://detectingwestaustral.4rumer.com/

but I want it to show as
http://detectingwestaustraliangold.net
OR
http://detectingwestaustraliangold.4rumer.com/

So did you bought a domain name?

Or you can also change your forum name freely:

Yes I did buy domain names ending in org, net or com to give my forum name some protection.
I'll read the link you have supplied.
Thankyou.
