Solved Questions about custom domains?

Post by bob8972 on June 11th 2010, 7:38 pm

I have a few questions related to having a custom domain for your Forumotion forum.

This is the form to fill out to register for a domain.
Name : (Do you guys mean the name of my forum?)
First name : (Obviously my first name, right?)
Corporate body : (If my forum is just a general, video game discussing forum, would that be society, association, or particular?)
Organization : (What if my forum isn't really an organization?)
Address : (Self-explanatory)
Zip code : (Self-explanatory)
City : (Self-explanatory)
Country : (Self-explanatory)
Phone number : (Self-explanatory)
Fax : (What if you don't have a fax number?)
Email : (Self-explanatory)

I also have 3 more questions.
1) I know this is stupid to ask, but everything, like my address and phone number will be kept private and I won't be bothered a lot right?)
2) How much does having a custom domain cost? Do I pay yearly or monthly, and how much?
3) One of the members on my forum which has been kind of dead lately, suggested having a custom domain. He said there will be a lot more members if their is a custom domain, which I can kind of agree with. But for those who have a custom domain, has your forum been very active since you have add a custom domain?

I am just wondering because I would like to have one for my forum which hasn't been to active lately, and I think doing this is a way to go. So please help me and answer my questions.

Thank you!

Name: Forum Name
Corporate body: particular
What are the options for Organization?
Fax : Name it up i guess.

1. Forumotion doesn't share personal info. They hate it as we do.
2. 1600 Credits (Around $21 Bucks) Every Year
3. Depends really, if your forum is interesting and at a point where people are looking for then yes.

They don't have options for Organization, should I just put general or something? Oh and what do you mean name it up? I don't have a fax number, can't I just leave it blank?

1) Cool Smile.
2) Really? That's not so bad, something I can afford.
3) Awesome.

I have another question. If I make a custom domain, will all of my old posts and topics be with the new custom domain?
