Hello,

The only way other than getting a free domain name from a contest, is by :

1. If someone donated 1600 credits to your forum

Or :

2. If your forum is really active. You'll see a note in your administration panel, located by the domain name purchasing page, Wink

I've never heard on number 2. I am 90% sure that was passed on as a fake idea?

At first, I did not believe it, until I saw it for myself, Wink

I got a free domain name for my forum from forumotion : ( Note was given to me Via ACP )

>> http://www.nintendopeeps.com/forum.htm

The only problems with it, is that you can't delete the domain name unless contacting Typlo... ( Because it was free, I think... )

Yes, its true. You can get a free domain name through activity. Marc, how old is your domain name? I think I read somewhere that it can be changed after 65 days (20 % sure :/).

Have you tried? Go to ACP > Misc. > Spend Credits > Domain > Type in your preferred domain > Save (or something like that) > See what happens.

This doesn't always work, just sometimes FM is thankful, so they give you a free domain name.

Yes, I have also tried this option, but then wants me to pay a domain, because I have 0 credits.

Now what?

Sorry becouse of my pathetic english knowledge,

the way to get the free domain depends primarily on the number of forums in the same section as you in the forumotion directly for your language, not just you member and post count Wink
Go and check if you have the free doamin for you?
Admin panel >> Misc ( Tab ) >> Domain > Customize > It may offer u a domain there if you have been offered a free domain Wink


P.S. You dont have pathetic english, sure it isnt great but theres been worse here Wink

Regarding your forum activity, your domain name is offered by Forumotion.

When it says this, can I change the name?
How will the name look like then? www.somethingsomething.com for example?
What happens after one year when the name is 'expired'?

If your forum remains as popular, you will be offered another free domain, you can renew ur current one (somethingsomething.com) or you can choose a new one (mydomain.com) as per your discretion.

Forumotion is basically offering you a free domain, so you can think of something, anything, and if it's available, they'll host it for you, for free, and ofcause it'll be through GoDaddy.com

But what if the forum will not be as popular, what happens to the name?
Do I have to pay money then to keep the forum or will I just have to change the name or do something else?

And would I have to warn my members about the name change or will the old name still work?

If your forum is popular enough, you will ahve the option to renew ur domain, or choose a new one.

your old sub-domain will always work (so example.forumotion.com or example.darkbb.com) even with ur domain name present.

If you chose to change ur domain, or you don't get offered a new one or renewal, you will have to warn you members because the domain stops working, and thus only the sub-domain (example.forumotion.com) will work.
