This Stuff is all New to me?
« on: April 22, 2018, 10:48:48 pm »

   I have a few questions.  I'm in the process of having web.com make me a website.  My problem is I only wanted to build a forum like the one here.  They told me I needed a website?  So I purchased one and the domain.  They charged me 119.00 for central hosting for a year, 331.00 billed every 4 months for the website?  I don't have a business and no physical address.  I just wanted to start a message forum with a few sponsors?  Are they raking me over the coals


2.  How do I enabled images and allow members to post images?  I purchased an upgrade for 20.00.


3.  How do I make banners for my sponsors?  Do I have to purchase another program for this?
 
I apologize for all the questions, but this is all new to me.

If you just need a forum you don't need a website/hosting from that at all. I would ask for a refund for that. A  domain name costs around $10 a year.

2. Users can upload attachments with the free plan with have I belive a 25mb limit for attach space. But that can be expanded as needed.

3. To make custom banner graphics that requires a program or someone with design skills to do so. I do AdSeller pro built in the ultimate plan

Ok, questions?  So is it good for me to at  keep the domain?  Can you supply me with everything I requested?  If so I rather stick here?  Thy told me my domain name is Road2HardCoreIron.net,  It's been 8 days and it is not showing up?


2.  How do I set things up so that people can look my (Roadt2hardcoreiron) and it brings them to my page?  I'm on facebook but I need to be available google and the other avenues?
3.  What are the prices to up grade for upgrade for images?  Also what do you charge for banners?  Not sure I'm using correct wording?


4.  I was afraid to buy the host here because web.com said they were doing it and I didn't want to confuse things.  I will cancel with the Monday, if you provide the services I need here?

Create a forum are you familiar with the privacy protection  for the hosting I think?

They didn't buy the domain yet you can buy the domain at godaddy.com for 12.99 plus I think $5 for privacy protection.
After that just point the nameservers to ns1.createaforum.com and ns2.createaforum.com then in createaforum go to admin -> domain manager  use that to park the domain


If you want to sell advertisement space that requires the ultimate plan at $20 a month then includes our adselling software.
To see some items you can buy you can see this page for pricing that is for this support forum: https://support.createaforum.com/upgrades.php

I think I know what you mean.  So if I buy unlimited will it automatically change over and bill me accordingly?

You have the the right package I just checked ULTIMATE which includes all our features and zero ads.
If you want me to order the domain and setup it all for you I can just paypal me $20

I emailed you an invoice for the domain to get started. Later on if you want SSL/secure site let me know as well that is also listed on upgrades.
I can have your domain name up and running tonight on your forum.

If you can do that would be great.  Do you think web.com will refund me?  Shoot me info and I will paypal now.  Could you ad the protection.  It's Road2HardCoreIron.  If you can walk me through it would be great!

Domain is online now and should be pointed to your forum: http://road2hardcoreiron.net/ big companies have issues at some time. They may have some better tech but they don't remember each client.

Paypal for my Sponsors
« Reply #14 on: April 23, 2018, 12:30:22 am »
My sponsors may not all pay through paypal.  Some are personal friends.  So I may not need paypal for awhile.  Got to get things running. I'm not sure how much they charge?
