Solved Buy .com or .net ( Domain )

Post by Nomee on April 25th 2011, 12:10 pm

Hi,

As there are two options to purchase credits i-e, by using Paypal & Allopass. I m from Pakistan & Allopass does not work here. I m a student & do not have paypal account & i want to buy domain for my forum. Is there any secure option to buy domain ( like to transfer amount in bank account or something else ) because I can pay but don,t know the secure way. As i mentioned that i don,t have paypal account so is there any other option ?

I had remember that 1600 Credits equal to how much amount but that amount slipped from my mind Smile, so please let me know also, that to buy domain it requires 1600 credits & 1600 Credits = ????



Keep Care


Best Regards,
Nomee

Hi, yes a domain costs 1600 credits. The only methods are PayPal and Allopass. More information about credits: http://help.forumotion.com/t1219-credits-management

Misc>Buy/Obtain Credits
Choose the currency & then convert.

Ok right


Thank you very much !



But lemme ask last thing that if I host my forum on .com ( not buy from Forumotion ) like many people are having their own servers & providing .com or .net domains. What changes should i faced w.r.t to data transfering to that domain ?

Suppose i do buy domain from someone in my country , would i need to transfer complete data to that domain or just need to redirect my current sub-domain to .com or .net ?

If you were to purchase a domain outside of Forumotion then you will need to see this tutorial: http://help.forumotion.com/t7021-redirect-an-extern-domain-name-that-you-own-to-your-board

Please be aware that your control panel may / will not look exactly the same as this as this is only an example, however the principal is the same. Wink

Ok that means if i redirect my forum to external domain, there is no need to transfer any data there. just need to change my sub-domain from http://www.bbafellows.forum-motion.net > http://www.bbafellows.com & after buying the domain, everything remain same as it is ?

You wouldn't be able to transfer anyways due to not having access to the database.
