Changing domain name for my forum?

Post by Miskebam on April 24th 2012, 1:03 am

I just received the following message from forumotion:


Currently, your forum address is : http://www.okieoilman.net
Your domain name expires in : 55 Days



www.okieoilman.net Since your forum has a high activity, your domain name renewal is offered by Forumotion.
Warning, since the renewal is free, your domain name cannot be transferred nor be redirected to another site during 6 months after renewal validation. Click the button "Renewal" to beneficiate from this offer...Your original domain name is http://matt633.forumotion.com.

RenewalDelete

*****My question: I would like to change the domain name to matt633.com or .net whichever is available, rather than the name that is there now. Is this possible? Who to contact to make sure, I would rather this happen now, than wait the 55 days.

Thank you!

Contact an administrator to help you with that, as that is automated and will automatically reset and keep your original domain. And congratulations on getting a free year added onto your forum. Wink

Hi,

You cannot change the domain as yet, without deleting it, which you can do, via this post: http://help.forumotion.com/t105014-remove-transfer-a-personalized-domain-name#684918

After it's removal, you can use the free domain to purchase anything you wish, but without paying for it Very Happy
The removal process can take up to 3 business days, but it is the only option.

Congratulations on the free domain Smile

Thanks for the congrats! Its been a long year...

If I delete the forum... then I the members will have to re-register?

Is there a way to just create another, and import the members?

Hello,

Unfortunately there's no way to import member's posts and other more data as we don't have access to our database.
