In progress Domain set up for my forumotion forum

Post by adsel on September 8th 2015, 5:44 am

I searched about this but still I am not sure how to set up domain name. I read previous posts but I like to set TLD for my forumotion forum.

In this post I could not get it http://help.forumotion.com/t7021-cname-redirect-an-extern-domain-name-that-you-own-to-your-board


Above is what I can see where I have my domain name hosted. How to set if going to add new CNAME?
NAMESERVER setting would be easy (ns1.domain.com and ns2.domain.com) to point my domain to my forum.

Hello

There are three information to enter

1- Time to live:

It represents the time your members will keep the page on cache. Choose a long period of time (around 15 days is enough)

2- Name:

It is the particle before the dimaine name. 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

Your can read Gandi tutorial to learn how to set up a domain name: http://wiki.gandi.net/en/dns/zone/cname-record

3- Value:
It is the url targeted, the url of your forum without http://

You can watch the following video:



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

I do not want to use domain forwarding, it creates frame.
I used CNAME before, but here with forumotions I can not understand it to use TLD.

Pointing with sub domain show no error (forum.webeter.us) but www.webeter.us has error with adsel.forumotions.in as above image.

Hello,

I am sorry but I cannot help you further. Cname option is an option to configure external domain name but we cannot manage your domain name configuration. If you get an error that mean your domain name has not been well configured.
