Solved Second Domain Name

Post by Wendy Banks on April 29th 2016, 7:07 pm

I'd like to repurpose an existing forum and put it under a new custom domain name.
It currently has a custom domain on it and I can't find a way to buy another one and then switch it to that.

I'd really like to save my members from having to register again and to save myself a headache of moving content.

Please help!!

You will have to cancel the old domain name then purchase a new one for that forum.

Thank you very much SLGray for the quick response. Do I retain ownership to the previous domain or does it poof?

Are you wanting to use it for another forum?

I was hoping to be able to still have access to the previous domain in case I needed to change it back in the future while the subscription is still current.

You can not have two domain names redirect to the same forum.

Oh I realize you can't have that happen at the same time.

What I'm asking is this scenario...

I buy Domain A and apply it.
I have decided I want Domain B instead.
So I go through the delete process for Domain A.
Then I buy Domain B and apply it.

Now if I want to go back to Domain A (within the year of having bought it), will I be able to or would I need to buy it again?

Only if domain name A is still available.

P.S. Changing the domain name is not good for your forum's SEO.
