Solved A new Domain, same link?

Post by RPG_Lover on September 15th 2012, 4:27 pm

I was wondering when you pay for a Domain name. Will it make a redirect link to that domain?

For example: http://domain_name.makeforum.net

And if you pay for the .makeforum to be gone then when someone type the domain name I mention above would they be directed to http://domain_name.net or would they be lead to a error page? I am wondering because I will be getting a domain name (As soon as 1 is decided because the name we wanted was already taken so a new one must be made.) and I wanted to know so if it is very important to inform the members or not.

I couldn't figure out where else to post this so I hope I made the right spot. But I been thinking it is time to get rid of the .makeforum from the Domain Link. (If you want to visit my team's forum you may by clicking here to see. It is for game makers who use RPG Maker IG, RPG Maker XP, RPG Maker VX, or RPG Maker VX Ace)

I plan to get it on the 11/1/12 (First day of Thanksgiving) so I got plenty of time to wait. But I would like to know if I should make the announcement important or not.

The old address will still work, it will always work, and your new domain name will redirect to your forum also, but when your domain name (address) expires, it will no longer redirect to your forum. But your original address will always work. So if you plan on posting your link with the domain name at various places, keep in mind if it ever expires it won't work anymore.

Once the domain name was enabled successfully, your forum is accomplishable through two addresses (your new domain name and your previous forum address).

Please change the title of your topic, that is related to your question/issue, so that other users will be able to find their question/issue using the search engine.

Thank you. So it is not something to worry about when a new Domain is made. I like to be sure about things before taking action.

This have been solved.
