Description of problem

We have re-branded, No longer use the domain name 360chaos.net
and do not want it to be our domain.
I let it lapse, did not click renew. However it auto-renewed.

I would like to know how to purchase the domain 360chaos.net
So that way I can have the old domain forward to the new domain.
forum.wearechaos.net

We still use the forum wearechaos.niceboard.org

Thank you for your time!

Hello Mike

If I well understand the problem. You bought a domain name via Forumotion (360chaos.net). But you would like to remove this domain name to use forum.wearechaos.net (which is an external domain name to Forumotion?). If you bought the domain name outside our service, you can use forum.wearechaos.net as Cname.

In that case, we can remove 360chaos.net and we can make a 301 redirection
pointed to forum.wearechaos.net

Let me know Smile

Thanks

Almost,
360chaos.net was provided by forumoton a few years ago

I no longer need it, and would like the domain removed.

Forum.wearechaos.net already forwards to my default forum wearechaos.niceboard.org

Thanks again.

Hello

That's okay. Do you want a 301 redirection not to lose your traffic?

Yes please.

Is it also possible to purchase the old domain 360chaos.net from forumoton?

Thank you!

MUMMM the problem is you cannot have 2 domain names for one forum. One forum = One domain name
We can only create a redirection !

I have a separate website for visitors to use.

And then I have our forumoton forum for my members.

I want to own 360chaos.net for my own use.
I understand if that is beyond your control.

Exact. But we don't transfer domain name outside as you can read on this announcement. The only solution is to remove the domain name and wait the domain name be public.

That's fine then.

To be clear . I'd like for the domain name that forumoton has provided me with (360chaos.net) to be removed and set back to the default domain name wearechaos.niceboard org

I will purchase the domain name after it is made public.

Thanks again!

Hello Mike

Sorry for the late reply. I've sent a request for removing 360chaos.net domain name and make a 301 redirection to wearechaos.niceboard org (like that you won't lose your traffic if some members still enter the old domain name). I'll let you know as soon as it is done. Smile

Thanks For you

Please note that you'll receive an email from Godaddy asking you to confirm the domain name change. Please confirm by clicking on the email link. Otherwise the domain name will be blocked Smile

Thanks for your trust Smile
