In progress Domain ownership and credits inquiry

Post by Astra on May 9th 2014, 9:44 am

Wasn't sure where to put this, sorry
But I have a question regarding the buying of domain name or the rights to your forum page so you can own it
I was wondering how I would do this if I can, is credits the thing I should be looking at because it says domain name for a year, what if I wanted to buy my domain name and move it to a different server, for a longer period than a year, perhaps several or permanently
My forum is still rather a newbie her, but just wodering about this process so I can be aware of it a little way down the track thanks

You are only buying a domain name. You are not buying your forum. Transfers are not available. You will have to wait until the domain name expires then purchase for other forum.

Hello

You can buy a domain name or get it for free (depending on your domaine name activity). However, we don't transfer domaine name as SLGray said.
You can read the following tutorials:

Thank you for your help and time
It makes a lot more sense now with the added tutorials, thought it was just buying the domain name
Sorry new-ish here so didn't know where to find the tutorials
Thanks again
