Solved CName redirecting to French Forumotion

Post by ndbrewer on February 17th 2012, 4:28 pm

I had my hosting provider adjust the CName for my site so I could use my own domain name. I wanted to use my subdomain forum.ndbrewers.com to host ndbrewers.forumotion.com.

They set it up, but now forum.ndbrewers.com goes to some french version of Forumotion. I asked my provider about it, but all they gave me was this answer:

Our name servers are returning the DNS settings that you requested. You may need to contact forumotion.com to setup anything on there end to get it to work.

;; ANSWER SECTION:
forum.ndbrewers.com. 14400 IN CNAME ndbrewers.forumotion.com.

Any thoughts? I've tried changing the domain name in my Forumotion admin, but I get the error: The supplied domain name is not well configured
Your CNAME must redirect to : ndbrewers.forummotion.com.

Am I doing something wrong?

Yep, that didn't work.

I just noticed something though... My domain host entered http://ndbrewers.forumotion.com/. Only one 'M'. I bet that's a problem.
