[GUIDE] Setting Up Your .TK Domain!
« on: August 17, 2013, 06:48:41 pm »
Since the old guide is useless, here is the new one.


First:
Go to the dot TK site, if you already have an account, log in, if not, enter yourforumname.TK name now. (Use actual forum name, not "yourforumname", then click "GO".

Next:

Click "Use DNS", then "Your Own DNS."
Now, enter "ns1.yourforumname.tk" in each slot and the IP addresses found in domain manager in your forum admin panel. (NOTE: DO NOT USE NS2, AS YOU DON'T NEED TO)

Now:

Registration length, set this at however long you want your .TK to last, 12 months is the best.

Then:

Fill in the anti-spam.

Now:

Sign up.
----------------------------


Now, go to your forums Admin Panel and go to domain manager, then enter "yourforumname.tk" into the box near the bottom, then click "Park"

Now, click "Verify URL" and if you see an old style "1" in the top left, you can click the back icon and click "Update forum url"

You're done!

Enjoy your new .TK'ed forum!

If you have any problems or questions, please suggest them in this thread.


Cheers!

For some reason, when I try to activate my registration, I copy the code, visit the link, and try to paste the code, but it says I entered incorrectly. Do I have to reregister?

It could be that you're accidentally copying a space or other false character.
If not, yes, sadly you do.

Hello, please PM me the forum IP found in the domain section.
Thanks!

Edit: Also, that password doesn't seem to work.

Also, to make the .TK permanent, you'd need to press verify url in the domain center panel...
So I'll post when I'm ready for you to press verify url and all that...

OK, ready for you to "park" garchysforums.tk

Then "verify url" and if you see a "1" press the back button and confirm it.

Are you clicking the Verify URL link in the domain panel?

Looks like the .TK link is now working!

Now just verify and then confirm in the domain panel.

It's not working for me still, and I think something's messed up. I can't visit the forum anymore, not even with the .createaforum link. Can you?
