Solved Redirecting your own domain

Post by wernis on November 28th 2016, 5:38 pm

So I have my own domain name and I wants it to redirect to my forum.
I have added the correct Cname settings and my domain provider has confirmed that everything is indeed correct, however, when I am adding my subdomain in an Admin CP, I always get this error no matter what:

The supplied domain name is not well configured
You have no CNAME redirecting to : murkliai.forumlt.com

I have no idea what you just said (confused).

I have my own domain name, properly set up redirection by entering a Cname, however in the admin CP (General - Forum Address) when entering my domain name it shows that it is not redirected to your Cname even though it is.

So you want to add your forum name after something? I do not know if that is possible. Most domain names just remove the Forumotion part.

Original Link: help.forumotion.com
Domain Names: help.com, help.net, help.org, etc.

How are you entering the link in the administration panel?

Hi, it is still not working.
In admin CP I try with/without www

That's how my DNS settings look like. The domain is Murkliai.Lt and I want it (not a sub-domain, I changed my mind) to reach my forumlt forum.



Maybe it has something to do with A's? Or maybe aname www entry has to be without a dot?

You need to contact the domain name provider about how to set it up.

We do not know how other providers work.

I meant how do you enter the link in your forum's administration panel?

murkliai.lt and www.murkliai.lt , I try both.

Also, my uploaded picture shows everything you need to know (it shows a Cname record, that's all you need).

Go ahead and enter it even if you get the error message. Wait a couple days to see it it starts to work.
