Solved Add pointed domain

Post by Bloodhound1958 on Tue Mar 18 2014, 19:37

Hello,

I have pointed a domain name to my forum here by editing the name servers. How do I request you to attach and point to my forum on this end to complete the process?

Thank You...

Hi,

Could you explain what you're requesting a little more as I'm having trouble understanding your request.

I own another domain name which I am trying to direct to my forum URL. I do not understand the process. I need the address for the primary and secondary nameservers to my forum to change them.

You can not have two domain names redirect to your forum.

You can cancel the Forumotion one if you want. If you decide you want that name back, you will have to purchase it again.

Very disappointing considering all of our members have it bookmarked..search engine standings etc.
I'll have to put some thought into this. If there are any other options please let me know.

I would not change it because it would cause issues with your forum's SEO rating.

I've decided to go ahead and delete the one with forumotion. How do I request this? Also, how long until the deleted name becomes available again for purchase? I assume its not possible to delete the original .forumotion url is it? LaughingSmile

Thank You

Hello

Once you delete your domaine name, your forum will be only available via the original url. Your previous domaine name will become public 1 year after your purchase.

After the deadline, Forumotion doesn't controle over the domaine. There is still a gap before the domaine name becomes totally public. It doesn't depends on our service (at least it is around 60 days but it could be more) After that, you'll be able to purchase the domaine name to an other register.

If any questions feel free to ask

Hello


You should be aware of delecting a domain name can have very bad consequences for your forum. There is a high risk for your search engine and traffic.
However, if you're sure to delete it, I advise you to announce it to your members, send their a newsletter...

Then, you have to send me via PM:
- the Original url
- Custom domain name
- Foundation email

Then, read this tutorial:CNAME


Thanks
