Changing my Forum URl:

Post by Hillary.Reist on February 26th 2011, 5:55 am

Hi,

Because of certain reasons, I've had to change the URL of my Forum to stop certain people trying to hack my forum.

But, my question is, how long does it take for the old URL to stop redirecting to the new URL?

Thanks. Smile

What do you mean, "stop"? Do mean how long until it switches entirely or something?
Because I would think that it would always re-direct, and people would just have to access your forum from the second link. I'm not sure though...

Like, say the old URL is bananaboard.com and the new URL is Hannahbanana.com. For a while, if members try to access the board at bananaboard.com, it will just redirect it to hannahbanana.com. But when will bananaboard.com become invalid?

This shouldn't be like this. If you get a new domain the other one is deleted.

I have the same problem. The old one redirects me to new one.

Is there a difference if it was two sub domains?

What 2 sub-domains? You can't have 2 sub-domains at a time, in case you change your sub-domain, there'll be no difference, it will just change the link. Wink
