Redirect an extern domain name that you own to your board
How can I redirect my extern domain name to my forumotion board ?
(Note: this help isn't useful if you earn a domain name directly through forumotion, it's done automatically!)
First step: Connect yourself to your extern domain name website.
Second step: Go to the administration panel of your domain name website.
Third Step: Start the modifications in the Administration Panel.
Last step: Validate your domain name in the administration panel of your board.
Your domain name is now ready to use !
I have already a homepage, can I link a subdomain with my forumotion board?
Yes, of course - it's almost the same procedure as above. Just assign the CNAME to your subdomain instead:
When you choose the sub-domain which you wish to use on your forum (forum.my_domain, for example, is a sub-domain of my_domain), you have to create the corresponding CNAME entry in the DNS administration of your domain: a CNAME entry allows to point an url towards the other one in a transparent way. That way, you can link forum.my_domain with forumotion board YourForum.forumotion.com.
Any recorder of domains names possesses different interfaces, and thus different methods to create such CNAME. However, in a general way, the process takes place as described below:
Buying a external domain name will not allow you to redirect your Forumotion sub domain to your external domain.
