In progress error: The supplied domain name is not well configured

Post by DarkChildWithin on April 22nd 2015, 3:05 pm

Hi guys, i have a domain name on an external site which i am wanting to change my forumotion site to, i have set up according to their instructions as well as yours from link:http://help.forumotion.com/t7021-cname-redirect-an-extern-domain-name-that-you-own-to-your-board

However when i go to validate i get an error which i am unable to fix, the error in question is:
The supplied domain name is not well configured
You have no CNAME redirecting to : mysticutopia.heavenforum.org
You have configured a A type DNS ( A type redirects to an IP address, and not to a textual domain name like the CNAME )


the domain name is: mysticutopia.ninja


if i type that in my url box i get redirected to my forum site but am wanting to validate on forumotion site as well. please can you please help me, im so confused.

Hello

If you get this error message, it means your Cname is not well configurated

I advise you to start from the beginning. There are three information to enter
1- Time to live:

Indicate your users will get in cache your pages. Choose a long period of time (around 15 days is enough)

2- Name:
It is the particle is the domain. For example:
name.your_domain.uk


If you want to have your forum on www.your_domain.uk, in that case the name =www
If you want to have your forum on forum.your_domain.uk, in that case the name = forum.... etc


3- Value:
It is the url targeted, the url of your forum

You can watch the following video:



The video is in French but I think it can help Wink

You don't need to understand French to understand the video. All is exactly on the same place. You just have to look at the picture.
