Solved registering forum address

Post by ChiropracticBender#2073 August 4th 2020, 3:51 am

I have followed the instructions posting on the forums on how to set up a existing domain via CNAME

Currently, your forum address is : geekcafe.forumotion.com
registering forum address Annota10

https://geekcafe.xyz points to https://www.forumotion.com/search/www.geekcafe.xyz

registering forum address Annota11

The instructions on the forums as i can tell a lot of people are having problems with this. Is there anything wrong in my setup?

Contacted GoDaddy and they set up the account like this and it seems to be working. This allows the use of the following URLs;

https://geekcafe.xyz
https://www.geekcafe.xyz
We are waiting for the DNS to propagate to make sure these both work.



If anything that can help future members in the community here are some tips.

https://www.whatsmydns.net/#CNAME/
use this tool to see if your setup is pointing in the right direction. (Allow time for DNS setting to propagate Est 2 - 24 hours)

Your new site URL should be https://www.geekcafe.xyz/ (with www) - not https://geekcafe.xyz

You need to ask the company you bought the domain name through, the redirect has to be set up a certain way so both the www and non www version of your domain point to the same thing.
