It costs 1600 Forumotion credits ( around 15 Euros or 26 australian dollars of less )
You can purchase it from your Admin panel > Misc > Buy/obtain credits

You will have to delete the domain by contacting Typlo and get a new one.

It's "taken" for the remainder for the 12 months that it has been purchased for, until that time is up, it's in reserve.

This should be able to help, purchasing via the admin panel is the easiest Wink

Yes I did but fatcow.com looks nothing like the one you posted. I have no clue what to do when I go to manage my account. Can anyone help? Or should I just bend over and take this one?

Walk you through what?

Go to fatcow.com, create a CNAME record which points to your forum's current address (there should be some sort of DNS stuff).
Then go to your forum...
ACP > General > Forum Address > Personalized domain name.

Then follow the steps.

Done.

A CNAME is a record which is textual. You don't need an IP (that's for an A record). Simply have the source as your personal domain, and the destination as the forum's domain (http://example.forumotion.com/). Due to DNS propagation times, it might not work for a few hours (or a few minutes - give or take), so wait for a while.
