Hello Hello

Yes you can transfer your personnalized domain name only, to another registrar. Please read the conditions here : http://help.forumotion.com/t105014-remove-transfer-a-personalized-domain-name

No, as Coddy said, it is not possible. If you decide to leave Forumotion, your members will need to sign up in your new forum Smile

Your Forumotion "data" is not transferable to another host. Only your purchased Domain can be used elsewhere(another host).

lol. Forumotion is a free platform for creating forums. So, forumotion can do all that the technicians want with your forum. It's a forumotion decision.

Now, to your problem. You can't transfer members from forumotion to another host, from reasons of security, and another reason: this is a free forum hosting. Smile

Forumotion does not support it, I know that it may be hard not being able to transfer your data from forum@forumotion to a paid hosting forum, especially if you have tons of posts and members, but Forumotion doesn't support this system. Furthermore, you can customize your forum with dozens of tricks & tutorials that will make your forum look more professional and smart, maybe even it will look like a paid hosting forum.

Yes, as a free hosting service, Forumotion doesn't make available to his users the database of the forums hosted when they want to leave the service. All free forums hosters work the same way.

not even if i paid ? to be honest i`m happy with it now its just in the furture i can see there being a problem not being able to manage the memberships on there as i`ll have to keep a note when each members membership runs out and do it all manually and starting again will be hard too as i`ve put alot into getting the members with adveristing and that

So the better way to avoid this is to keep your forum with Forumotion ! Very Happy

In the future, if you prefer to change of service, I repeat that your database can't be transferable. Sad

Forumotion is the only owner of the databases.

You mean a registration fee ? No, there is no feature for that.

I'm pretty sure if you get technical you, yourself can incorporate/add a feature like this into your forum, remember, Forumotion allows its users & forum members to customize their forums as much as possible without buying paid hosting. But of course not everything can be changed, this is a free host after all.

Hello ! Hello

I suggest that you open a new topic because it's a very different issue and the title of this topic has nothing to do with it.
You'll have more chances to have a reply to your question with a new topic Very Happy

Thank you very much !
