Solved [Question] What is the difference between buying the domain name here than other sites?

Post by KazmoK on September 26th 2012, 7:57 am

Title says it all


I want to buy a domain name,
for example i want a webpage, www.ingenmarket.com
on the homepage it would look something like loohub.ca with the forums

so my forums would be on www.ingenmarket.com/forums

I went on godaddy.com today and saw the price, which is about half the price of what it costs to buy the domain here on forummotions.com
I'm just wondering what is the difference if I buy it from goddaddy or other places than here using credit?

Hello,

This is simply easier for you to buy your domain name through Forumotion, and this, for several reasons.

First, you don't have to do anything. When you purchase your domain name, you just have to wait for its activation and it will be automatically available and configurated to redirects to your forum. With an external domain name, this operation is your responsability, with no guarantee that this will work.

Then, you can win the renewal of your domain name very easily ! If your forum is active, you won't pay the renewal of your domain name. With another registrar, the payment is annual.

Also, with an external domain name, your forum will risk a loss of your SEO due to the duplicate content (because your forum is available on its base URL and your personalized domain name).

And finally, there's no engagement. If you want to transfer your domain name to another registrar someday, that will be possible (by following the ICAN rules of transfer).

Thanks Smile

anymore perks?

what about ads?
right now I have an ad across my forum, which I guess the money made off ads goes to forummotions
if I were to buy the domain the ads will disappear and I can place my own ads on the forum?
Thank you so much for the response, Anyone else have an opinion on this matter besides the admin?
