Description of problem

I bought the domain time4chaos.com
ive been trying a web builder to make the site, but they don't seem to support forums.
I am wanting to know if the forums I create here can be moved to that domain or do I need to buy something like vbulletin?

Are you wanting a domain name transfer? If not, this is the wrong section.

P.S. Forumotion do not allow transfers of the database. You can only import a forum to Forumotion.

Hello,

Your domain time4chaos.com is not acquired via forumotion, however it's possible to link it to a forumotion forum. To do this, simply use a CNAME

Here is a tutorial that explains how to do that :rose:

so I cant have it as time4chaos.com because I didn't buy the domain thru forumotion, and I would have to buy another domain thru here to do so? that seems messed up to me. and no I don't want it to redirect, when someone types in the web url I want it to go straight to it. So, in order for this to happen, I will have to buy a 2nd domain, and buy it through forumotion?
