You can buy them. And use them on your forums.
Check out the domain manager area for details.

Yeah wrong spot. In the admin area called domain manager.
We don't sell domains directly but you can park a domain with us

Step 1:
You will need to create two name servers at the register for your domain.
These two nameservers contain the following information

Nameserver 1:
Domain: ns1.yourdomainname.com
IP Address:[IP...]
Nameserver 2:
Domain: ns2.yourdomainname.com
IP Address:[IP...]
Replace yourdomainname.com with the domain that you are going to use for your forum.

Next, you need to change the nameservers on the domain to
ns1.yourdomainname.com And ns2.yourdomainname.com

If you use Godaddy read this guide for more help
Step 2: - Add the domain to our system
 Enter your domain name that you wish to park
http://www.   
Final Step
After the nameservers have been added takes about 24 to 48 hours for the DNS changes to take affect. You can now try to change over the urls on your forum to your domain name.
Domains
[Forum name with-held].com VERIFY URL click on verify link if you see 1 you can update the url. Update Forum Url
[Forum name with-held].net VERIFY URL click on verify link if you see 1 you can update the url. Update Forum Url

Reset Default Forum Url to orginal
==============================
 
 Ok i've done this so now what?
 
I've clicked VERIFY URL, and nothing.. :\
 
 I also do not get the Name server..?

 
When i click VERIFY it says "internet explorer cannot display this webpage"

After you change them you may have to wait 24 to 48 hours.
I use intodns.com to verify check the domain is pointed correctly

Benefit is just your forums urls would be your domain instead of your forumname.createaforum.com

Next, you need to change the nameservers on the domain to
ns1.yourdomainname.com And ns2.yourdomainname.com

We Also have to add ips right?
