If you brought the domain name from Forumotion. Currently domain name transfers are suspended, nothing can be done about it.

Hello,

Without transferring the domain name you wouldn't be able to.

Just make an HTML page with this code:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<html>
<head>
<title>Redirecting</title>
<meta http-equiv="REFRESH" content="0;url=http://www.kaoscustoms.org"></HEAD>
<BODY>
Put text here
</BODY>
</HTML>

then <a href="http://www.forumotion.com/">Forumotion</a> under it to make it your homepage.
Works as far as I know.

New here, does this mean you can't use your own domain name ?

Its not working, once I put in the Forumotion...stuff~ its like it breaks the html and the redirect doesnt work. The HTML in general doesnt work.
