How to Change Forum Name to a Bought Domain

Post by gfxeditor on December 19th 2010, 5:39 pm

I made my forum today and I bought a domain name to add to it instead of having the .forumotion.co.uk and I am having problems on how to add it to my website.
My website is exciled.forumotion.co.uk and I can't figure out how to add my domain name. I registered the domain name with namecheap.com and I asked for help but still couldn't solve my problem
And help will be appreciated,
Jack

usually what i find is when you buy a domain name the settings will have the option to direct your new domain to your website.

In example i once bought a domain from a company called easily and once registered i had to point the domain to my website (my forumotion url) masked or unmasked and it took 48 hours before this to take effect.

so that might be the case with your domain. have you pointed it towards your forum url?

ok, that will be an option from where you brought the domain, so have a look through the account settings on namecheap.com and you should find it.

it should be under the option "Manage Domains"
