In progress question about domain name

Post by MixasKostas on Thu Apr 03, 2014 6:02 am

hello,
i recently made a free forum and i want to make it on a .com domain so my question is , if i pay for the 1 year domain name all ads will be removed ?
or i have to pay for the domain name and extra pay for the ads ?

every forum theme that i install has it's own ads or no ?

Also, where i can see the benefits of a paid domain? Very Happy

EDIT: if i move my forum to a .com domain i am gonna lose everything in there and start from the beginning?:wouhou:

thanks in advance!

Hi,

1) If you buy a years domain name, you'll have to pay for the ad removal. You can see what you can spend credits on by going to ACP --> Misc --> spend credits

2) All themes will have ads and these ads are hosted by Forumotion in order to pay for the up-keeping on the service.

3) The benefits at a glance are: More chance for a better SEO (search engine) ranking of your forum.
More professional looking

Those are two main benefits.

4) If you buy a domain name, you won't lose anything. You'll keep all the stuff you had before.

What exactly are you referring to a "ticket system?"

Hi,

This isn't possible, at least to my knowledge.

However this http://help.forumotion.com/t131789-add-a-form-on-creation-of-a-new-topic would allow it so you could create a forum for these support issues and when a user clicks on a thread they'll have to fill out a form.
