Personalized Domain VS Redirect Domain Empty Personalized Domain VS Redirect Domain

Post by iluv2zzz February 4th 2008, 1:38 pm

Hello

If I get a personalized domain example http://www.abc.com/ does that mean that when people go to http://www.abc.com/ it will go to my forum index? And all the link to the posts starts with http://www.abc.com/ instead of http://abc.forumotion.com/ ?

And for Redirect Domain, if I get a domain from outside (not forumotion) and I set the redirection to my forum, will it shows up my domain URL, or it only redirects to my forumotion URL?

And one more thing, if I use Personalized Domain or a Redirect Domain, can I still use subdomain to link to my other website? Say, http://www.abc.com/subdomain to link to my other page hosted somewhere else? How can I do that?

Hope you all understand what I am trying to ask.

Thank you!

I know we can redirect from the domain we buy outside. But, by redirect, it means that out forum are still at forumotion.com. Any link to our post is still forumotion.com/link.. and not ourdomain.com/link..

I just wan to confirm this, and is it if we get our personalised domain from forumotion, we can get ourdomain.com/link... and also if we can use subdomain for our other pages.

if you buy a domain from forumotion it will show as your address and you can force it to show for all pages within your site too.

If you buy outwith forumotion you can redirect and it will likely show your old address once redirected but some domains do offer 'cloacking' which will hide your old address.

Thank you for the reply. Is there anyway I can use the subdomain of my domain from forumotion?

Post by VoiD March 2nd 2008, 11:32 pm

same question here example (a more detailed one)

I made a forum here named www.on-abc.shop-forum.net and bought a .com domain named www.on-abc.com. and linked my .com domain to the forum sites name.

If I typed www.on-abc.com it will go to the forum but the name changes back to www.on-abc.shop-forum.net (redirecting)

Is it possible for me to permanently change the www.on-abc.shop-forum.net to just www.on-abc.com? How can it be done ?
