Title: can i change the name of my forum? thanks in advance
Post by: Clay Death on January 27, 2016, 01:27:59 am
my forum is Camelot Elite Tennis Society:

http://www.camelotelitetennis.com/index.php



I was thinking about changing it to just Camelot.



how would I proceed? would I have to call go daddy.com to change it?



thanks.

The url? If it is the url you would need to get a new domain. Camelot probably will be taken already.

I paid them for a year for this change.

you were right: Camelot was taken.


so I came up with Camelot Fantasy.

There is pros and cons to changing the domain. One thing is you might loose some search traffic if you switch over.
You can also redirect the new name to the old domain as an option.

I hear you. that is the chance I had to take.


I had to change the name in order to reinvent Camelot.


it is now camelotfantasy.com

my problem is that it is a done deal now. I already changed it and registered the new domain.


I already paid them.


how can I proceed now so that the website address now reads: camelotfantasy.com

looks like I messed up. I clicked on something and now my forum reads this address:

http://castleknights.createaforum.com/index.php


but I have registered the new domain name already. it is camelotfantasy.com.

I just dont know how to proceed from here.

Doesn't seem setup right.
Follow the godaddy guide or point a dns record to the ip of createaforum
