You would probably need access to the domain management to prove that you are in fact the owner of the domain.

I have an external domain name and I forwarded it to my forumotion forum. So now if anybody goes to "My-domain.com" reaches "My-domain.forumotion.com" which is what I want.
Is it possible to have only "My-domain.com" on the address bar instead of "My-domain.forumotion.com"? I don't want people to see I'm using a free forum software, people may don't like it. Rolling Eyes

My other question is, what if oneday I want to use something like Vbulletin on a server and not using Forumotion free forums anymore? Can I transfer all the data and members to my new forum? Is that possible?

Thanks
Mohammad

Try following this guide and see if it makes any difference as far as the custom domain goes
=> http://help.forumotion.com/frequently-asked-questions-f5/redirect-an-extern-domain-name-that-you-own-to-your-board-t7021.htm

Unfortunately no you cannot gain any data or SQL info from the DB when/if you do decide to move away from ForuMotion ....

OK, so can I be confident that forumotion will not add advertisements on my forum? or Can I be confident that forumotion will not add prices for using their forums?

Thanks
