Solved Changing default domain name

Post by Guser November 4th 2013, 4:18 am

Hi all,

Is it possible to change the default domain name once already created, from i.e. xxx.forumfree.co.uk to xxx.forumotion.co.uk ?

Only a matter of preference, but would like to know if this is possible.

Many thanks,

Gary

Those are not domain names. You change the regular address here:
Administration Panel > General > Forum > Forum Address

Thanks SLGray. Sorry for my lack of understanding for the terminology.

Under the setting page you specified I am only able to change what prefixes the '.forumfree,co.uk'. What I was hoping to do is to Change 'forumfree' to 'forumotion'. Can this be done?

Many thanks

Hi,

Its possible, go to the same location SLG stated and you'll see drop down boxes, those are the end names you can choose.

Also see this tutorial. It has a screenshot that might be useful.

Many thanks Derri, this makes perfect sense.

Is there a resource available showing a list of all possible end names? I.e. so that I can copy and paste the list to others.

Or are they only viewable in this view and using these drop-down boxes?

Many thanks.

Its only available in those drop down lists.

You could manually type them out but that would be a massive pain the in the neck.
