Hi, yes, it's possible. Add this code after <head> tag:
Code:
<meta HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" content="0; url=www.starcyber.indonesianforum.net">

yeah it's the Indonesian forumotion http://www.indonesianforum.net/

But i dont understand what he is asking?
One link is the sub-domain and i guess the other is his domain he bought?
He has to be sure he dint go back to using the sub-domain in his ACP i guess.

What dose it say in your ACP.

Go to

Admin panel>Misc>Credits management>Summary

scroll to the bottom of the page and what dose it say your domain is?

That is what you forum should be going to.
However if you are using the sub-dmomain links, yes they will still work. so dont share/use your sub-domain and only share/use your new domain link instead.

Using the founder's account, go to ACP>General>Forum Address and click the Personalized Domain Name tab.

If you purchased a domain name using credits, there will be an option at the top to force redirection.

If you have your own external domain name, read what is on that page and fill it out accordingly.

yes i use domain external but i dont understand what there said .. can u help me with the word but make it simple ..

it say
Spoiler:

When you choose the sub-domain which you wish to use on your forum (forum.my_domain, for example, is a sub-domain of my_domain), you have to create the corresponding CNAME entrance in the DNS administrator of your domain: a CNAME entrance allows to point an url towards the other one in a transparent way. in this way, you can link forum.my_domain to adress.my_forum.

Recorder of domains names have different interfaces, and thus different methods to create such CNAME.
However, in a general way, the process takes place as follows:

  • Connect to your user account on the site of your domain name provider, and go to the DNS management.
  • Check that the chosen sub-domain is not already used.
  • In the generally entitled field "source", "origin", or "alias" enter the prefix of sub-domain (i.e. "Forum" if you want to use the sub-domain forum.my_domain).
  • In the generally entitled field "destination" or " target host ", enter the original url of your forum, adress.my_forum.
  • You will maybe have to inform the TTL (Time To Live): give the maximal possible value.

After validation, you should obtain a line of this type:
Host Direct towards
forum.my_domain adress.my_forum
