Purchasing a custom domain for your site.

Post by TheSurgeXS on December 5th 2010, 5:27 pm

I been scrolling through different forum sites, and I just need some information before I make a purchase.

1) If I purchase a domain on forumotion, do I own that domain? Will forumotion ads disappear or would I need to also by the ad stop so I can put in my own ads to generate rev for my site.

2) How long does this domain last? I am guessing a year subscription?

3) Will the hosting improve, as in my past forum, many members complained about the latency of the chatbox that this site provides.


Thanks, for your support.

1. No you would need to pay to remove them.
2. All domains are a year but you get a message 60 days before it expires so you can get credits and renew it.
3. Nothing changes if you buy a domain name. We don't have any upgrade plans that move forums to another server that provide better features etc... All Forumotion forums are the same.

1. Mics Tab // Buy Credits // Pick Paypal or Allopass // Pick How many credits you want. (1600 Credits) around $21
Spend Credits // Buy Domain
2. Its the same every year (1600 Credits) around $21
3. Just put a url in the announcement.

1. What will be the storage capacity if I purchase 1 year subscription?
2. will I be allowed to remove forumotion ads and paste my own ads after purchasing the 1600/yr ($21) subscription or is there any additional cost for that?
3 How do I add/insert a block (not forum) within the forum homepage where I will be writing important information that will be attracting the visitors?

1. 20 MB is the standard for all forums: You will need to buy more if you want attachments and gallery space.
2. Once you remove the ad's that Forumotion puts on you can install your own.
3. You mean a writing in forum section so users know what you mean about this section?
