Wish to have my own host
« on: January 02, 2013, 01:39:11 pm »
Hello,


Would I be able to move my forum to my own host? The domain redirecting is not an ideal solution as the URL for all pages looks the same!


Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.


Thank you so much.

You can use your own domain with us if you use the domain manager. That will change all the urls to your domain

Thank you very much for the quick response. However, I would need a little more help with this as I am pretty new to this stuff :-(


I have the domain freezonesreview.com registered through iPage.com. I tried to change the nameservers in iPage but it appeared as a "Not Valid" name server. Their help desk suggested that I get the correct name servers from CreateAForum.


Now I am completely lost. My requirements can be listed as follows:


- To use my own domain name www.freezonesreview.com for the forum.
- To have clear URLs for each of the pages (not a common URL for the entire forum as it happens when performing a pointer using stealth settings or domain cloaking), without showing any information about CreateAForum (I can upgrade to a higher level with CreateAForum)
- TO have email addresses with the same domain names (such as info@freezonesreview.com)


It would be great if I could achieve these.


Thanks again.

Contact ipage.com and say you need to create ns1.freezonesreview.com and ns2.freezonesreview.com both pointed to ip address of 68.233.250.132

First two are easily possible.
Own email address would take a little more setup you would need to find a free email provider. I used to recommend google apps but no longer offered.

That sounds great.....let me try to request them to create the nameservers.


I am more than willing to pay for the email service, if I can get it under my domain name.


Will be back soon with the results.

This seems to be possible, if you can update the MX records for my domain (Freezonesreview.com) after the update of nameservers. I have submitted the request to create the nameservers.

Looks good all ready to go.
Wait about 24 hours.
Then in domain manager use the change url function and should be set.

And that will change all the urls on your board.
