http://custombaja.forum-phpbb.co.uk to www.custombajaforum.co.uk ????? HOW ..?

Post by custombajaforum on January 16th 2011, 11:05 am

hi all i have just started a baja RC Car forum, its doing well and growing weekly with new members .

im looking to get some forums gear from shop motion with the web address on tee shirts ect .

heres my problem.....

at the moment my web address is

http://custombaja.forum-phpbb.co.uk

what i would like to do is change the name to a domain i got a few months back that's

www.custombajaforum.co.uk

so it will look better on the tee shirts and stickers ect and also be easier to remember
can i just contact the company i got the domain from and re point the old forum name to the new one?

please can some one let me know how in full this is done

thanks

You mean you want to move your forum to another host? I don't think it's allowed.

It's not. Forumotion do not ever transfer ownership of the database.

if you read my first post again

at the moment my web address is

http://custombaja.forum-phpbb.co.uk

what i would like to do is change the name to a domain i got a few months back that's

www.custombajaforum.co.uk

so it will look better on the tee shirts and stickers ect and also be easier to remember


that's all just change the name to a shorter one and easier to remember.

i don't want to sound rude so please dont think that but i cant make the question any easier to understand

also please can i have a full answer not a " u cant " as thats pointless and gives me no input into the problem or a way around it

thanks

So, the domain name you bought; was it via forumotion or an external website?

If you bought it from a external domain site (GoDaddy, or anywhere), you can use a domain name mask. You can also set up the CNAME.

You can Google how to make a CNAME record in your Domain name Host DNS settings. A domain name mask will make the subdomain name with the .com or a domain you choose.

Lets calm down before someone blows up. This place is suppose to be a support forum and not a place to go off. If you don't want to help someone then you shouldn't even be here. That being said lets all be nice and play nice.
