Solved Domain Ownership Issue!

Post by oaky on April 22nd 2015, 2:10 am

Technical Details

Forum version : phpBB3
Position : Founder
Concerned browser(s) : Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Opera, Safari, Other
Screenshot of problem : http://i.imgur.com/l18K87n.png
Who the problem concerns : All members
When the problem appeared : This has been an issue since the forum was forcibly vacated by the founder.
Forum link : otthunderdome.com

Description of problem

Hi! I'm the founder of [url=otxtest.forumotion.com]otxtest.forumotion.com[/url], which is composed of the community from [url=otrecliner.forumotion.com]this forum; abandoned when its founder banned the majority of the community and left.[/url] Because the administrators and moderators (myself and another user) were banned or demoted, the forum is no longer useful for all intents and purposes.

Our community would like to purchase our old domain: otthunderdome.com. It was purchased in March of 2013 and renewed in 2014. It was not renewed for the year of 2015 as far as I understand (the website still redirects to otrecliner.forumotion.com), but the registrar has taken ownership over the domain and has registered it until 2016; preventing us from adopting our community's beloved title.

I would appreciate it if this issue could be solved without spending more than the price of the domain (which we are eager to pay). Thanks!

I'm the founder of the forum that we want to use the domain on. I was part of the administration team on the forum that used the domain previously, but the entire staff was demoted and most of the users were banned when the founder left.

What happens when you tried to purchase the domain name in the administration panel?

Hello

You let our domain name expired, that's why you are not able to buy it. You have to buy 1600 credits first and then, you can send me a private message so that we manually link the domain name to your forum.

Please, when you send me the private message, do not forget to provide:
- The link of this topic,
- URL of your forum
- Domain name
- Foundation email

Thanks :rose:

I'll be buying the credits later today - just want to confirm that I will be able to use this domain on otxtest.forumotion.com, and not the forum that it was originally registered on (otrecliner.forumotion.com)?

Hi; I still need a confirmation that I will be able to transfer "otthunderdome.com" to "otxtest.forumotion.com" despite it being originally purchased on "otrecliner.forumotion.com" before I can purchase the credits.

Hello

As the domain name is still on our account, we can link the domain name once you buy the credits Smile
