ok i am getting nowhere with this. i have tried to redirect the domain armycarpers.co.uk to my board hagz.createaforum.com i set the nameservers in my 123-reg control panel. used the ip 68.233.250.132 which it says in my domain manager. i added the url armycarpers.co.uk and verified the url and then updated it now it just points straight to the CaF homepage.


is the Ip correct it appears to be redirecting correctly just to the wrong IP?

Well, I am not an expert on domain parking, however from what I understand how the system on our other forum hosting service works, your domain name can only contain one dot. ( .com, .net, .org, .biz, etc) This means that you can't have .co.uk as an extension. Again, this is just a theory as to why this is happening.

Sorry about this, hopefully CAF will see this thread soon.

thanks but that sounds like a major downfall of the system then.

I believe Createaforum can undo that for you but I don't think he would delete it though. If he undoes the parking thing, you can put your forum in maintenance mode instead
All codes I make are tested on the latest version of Google Chrome and upon request of other browsers.

Forums are not deleted upon request. You can try resetting your forum url using this link: http://YOURFORUMURL.createaforum.com/index.php?action=adminpg;sa=changeurl;domain=default

Other than that, if you clear all posts made on your forum, it will be automatically deleted after some time with a server sweep.
