Hello,

Do you already own the domain names you want to switch it to? If not, you will need to buy credits and purchase the domain name through the admin panel. You also can not transfer or install a certificate from another site to a forumotion forum. You can get a ssl certificate for your forum, but you will need to use credits to buy that as well.

Note: You should wait until your new domain name has been purchased/added before buying the ssl certificate.

The SSL Certificate will not be available if you bought a .gr domain because that domain is not given from the company. If you bought the .net domain from the Admin Panel, you can easily switch to the domain instantly and be able to buy the SSL Certificate. If though, you bought the domain from an other website, you cannot activate the SSL Certificate.

If you bought a domain form another website and not from the Admin Panel, then you cannot add the SSL Certificate. If you bought the domain from the Admin Panel, then you can add the SSL Certificate. That's how it works.

I believe you can not transfer a ssl certificate that you already bought from another service. I believe that is what the user is asking @Luffy.

Edit: You can, however, use the domain name you purchased already. Just follow this tutorial to do that: https://help.forumotion.com/t7021-cname-redirect-an-extern-domain-name-that-you-own-to-your-board .

I also don't know if you can purchase a ssl certificate through us if you bought the domain name, elsewhere.

Understood . The domain name will be from you and I asked if I'm going to place an SSL certificate from another provider rather than forumotion .
although to do that I need to have some data from the CP of the domain name

if i can have ssl in .gr then let's put that else .net

If you buy bestinfo.net form the Admin Panel you are allowed to add the SSL from the Admin Panel. But .gr is not available via the Admin Panel.

Have bought both those domains or you will buy them?

What we are trying to explain to you is that if you buy .gr, you'll have to buy it outside forumotion, which means you will NOT be able to activate the SSL Certificate. BUT if you buy bestinfo.net (as mentioned above) but buy it from the Admin Panel, you can change the domain right away and be able to activate the SSL Certificate as well.

You have to go to your Admin Panel and check if the domains are available and buy them from there.
Admin Panel > Misc > Credits management > Spend credits > Domain Name
(Πίνακας Διαχείρισης > Διάφορα > Διαχείριση πιστώσεων >Χρήση πιστωτικών μονάδων > Domain Name)

If the domain is available you will get the Green Tick which will allow you to change it. If there's a red ex that means it's unavailable.

You can search the domain availablility on the site without waiting for me to check it out. You only need to check if: .com, .org, .net or .biz are green. If they are green they may be available. If red or blue then they won't be available. As soon as you find your domain name, let us know to remove your current domain.

Changing domain names is not really a great idea.  It causes issues with SEO.  When you buy a domain name, you should make sure that it is one who want to keep for a long time.

If I understand you correctly, you want to remove your current domain name and get a new one, correct?

Here is some more reasons why removing a domain name you purchased from Forumotion is not a great idea:

  • A loss of all email boxes created via the domain & all the content.
  • A loss of traffic because the domain name will no longer redirect to the forum.
  • A loss of any SEO search engine performed on the deleted domain.
