You have to do the settings from where you get the domain name.

This is the only tutorial we have.

Many users have found it difficult to set it up, so you are doing it at your own risk.

Thanks, but in other way ,the cost of buying a domain through this forum is very high ,so is there any way to reduce it??
I don't have much money
In other domain giving sites only cost less than 10$ per year but here its very high???

If you have high activity on your forum, forumotion gives free domains.
Just keep checking in your admin panel, if it lets you book a domain name. The day it allows, it will mean you got a free domain.

As i said if you get the domain from outside, you need to do proper settings on their end. If you get it from forumotion. There is no such issue.

When you are going to get free domain, it will be there in the admin panel>Misc>Spend Credits
Domain name.

Nopes, not possible to add bots in chat.
Yes you can register with another email address.

If you install a new skin from hitskin.com, all images that you uploaded etc will be gone.
