To have a domain name like .com or .net you will have to pay for the domain name on a yearly bases. For a sub-domain, like www.myforum.forumotion.com is free.

Also, your topic has been posted in the wrong area ! Smile This is for hitskin.

It is not free domain you get a free subdomain like Harperboy said.

To purchase a .com or a .net, you could try any domain name sites like Godaddy.com to purchase a domain name. These can cost around 13$ depending on how many years you want to keep it.

You can also get a free domain if your forum has a high starting activity Wink
