Title: [GUIDE] Setting Up Your .TK Domain!
Post by: FlashlightForum 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.

Oops. So I made an account, but I forgot to do the "use dns" and nameserver part while doing so...perhaps you could do it for me? =P

And no, that's not my real password, it's just a temporary replacementsupport
I want the original URL for my friend's forum, http://garchysforum.createaforum.com (http://garchysforum.createaforum.com) to be something like http://garchysforums.tk (http://garchysforums.tk)

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...
Title: Re: [GUIDE] Setting Up Your .TK Domain!
Post by: FlashlightForum on August 19, 2013, 11:33:29 pm
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?
Title: Re: [GUIDE] Setting Up Your .TK Domain!
Post by: FlashlightForum on August 19, 2013, 11:48:44 pm
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?

Yes, I can actually, via both domains.

Oh  :-\  I dunno then.

Oh  :-\  I dunno then.

If someone can access the admin panel and verify and confirm the new url, which is garchysforums.tk, you should be able to access it 100%.

I just set this forum and .TK up in less than 5 minutes:

MakeYourForumHaveA.TK (http://www.makeyourforumhavea.tk)

Thanks, from a different IP address?

Hmm, ok thanks. From a different IP address?

From any computer that works.

Take note here:
I set up all my forums on an iPhone 4 and or 5, so it shouldn't be hard for a computer with better access.

Please click on this: HERE (http://garchysforums.tk) and see if it works for your forum.
It does for me...

Ah! It's working now, I just had a power shortage so maybe the re-connection helped...
My computer is brand-new and very fast, so I don't know what the problem was. Thanks much for your help man =)

Don't forget to verify and confirm in the domain centre!

Just did that

Just did that

Have you confirmed it's "1" and then confirmed the URL?
Doesn't look like you did, as when I click the banner, it directs me back to the CAF forum.
Title: Re: [GUIDE] Setting Up Your .TK Domain!
Post by: DarkHydra505 on August 20, 2013, 12:36:37 am
Yes I did, but I put the banner on the forum before the .tk, so it links to the CAF domain

That didn't affect me, when I did my forums, but whatever.
Good luck, any other problems just let me know.
