Solved Upgrading from Free Domain to Premium Domain

Post by xcQuence on October 26th 2010, 1:18 pm

If I were to upgrade my existing free domain "www.AlphaX.motionforum.net" to for example "www.AlphaXCrew.com" -- would the old users still be able to access "www.AlphaXCrew.com" by entering in the old FREE Domain (www.AlphaX.motionforum.net)?

So basically, I plan on upgrading in the next few days. However, not all registered users will be able to know of the upcoming domain name change.

They'll probably enter "www.AlphaX.motionforum.net" to try and access my website.
Will they be redirected to "www.AlphaXCrew.com?" or would they see a discontinued page.

It's not absolutely necessary that we upgrade to a Real Domain, it's just a preferance as it seems more professional.

If there's no way for users to be re-directed to the new purchased Domain, I'm not quite sure I'll upgrade.

Anyone have any experience with this?
Oh and e-mailing all users is out of the question, I'm sure many of them used newly created E-Mails to register.

Oh and to clear one more thing up, the Domain purchase would be done through forumotion's Domain Purchase option.
