See I'm different, I can only access on the WWW as otherwise I get 'page unavailable' error.

Seems odd

The problem is if you get the name from some one else and not from FM then there is not a lot we can do about it.

I contacted them, answer (translated to English) I got was:
Ask FM if it is possible to connect domain with A-record or NS-record to their server.

Hello ^^

FM only accept CNAME records.

You must ask where you bought the domain to get yourdomain.com redirect to www.yourdomain.com
And then a CNAME entry for www.yourdomain.com --> basicurlwithouthttp.forumotion.com

Guys coming from yourdomain.com would be redirected to www.yourdomain.com then brought to your forum.
