How to setup CNAME on Dot TK??

Post by IXI SMOKIN IXI on November 29th 2010, 12:10 am

I was trying to use the domain from Dot.tk on my forum
Spoiler:
but I don't know how to set it up. I need someone to help me on how to set it up. Here is a picture of what it is asking me in the Dot.tk.

What would the Hostname and the IP be?
*edit* Also what would I have to do to set it up on forumotion?

THXs

PS: Set it up by going ACP > General > Forum Address > Personalized domain name > Follow the steps on that page.

I know that I have to set it up but I don't know what information I have to put in the Host Name and the IP Address on the DNS Service in Dot.tk. That was my question.

For the hostname I think you put your forumotion url. IP you don't put anything.

Add the url that you got from IP address and add it to your forum.

Im trying what you are telling me but it keeps coming as an error on the Dot.tk website. It keeps telling me to enter and IP when in reality your not supposed to need one.
