Solved SubDomains & URL Redirection

Post by Christos on Thu Dec 03, 2009 9:48 pm

Hello, i am back at geek police, Jalokim suggested that I would ask here ..

I bought a domain from a company ^^ called forumotion.com

Is it possible to set up subdomains?
Like your shop.geekpolice.net or because i didnt buy the domain from a normal site i cant?

Thanks Thank You!

Hello,

As long as you have your domain either in your GoDaddy account or another registrar you can. In other words, you have to own the domain.

For example, I have the geekpolice.net domain in my Registrar - GoDaddy account. I can then change the DNS settings and add a CNAME record under the Advanced DNS Settings to have a subdomain. Or URL mask the domain and create a subdomain.

Hello,

If you bought it from forumotion, you can because the domain is in your account. If you bought it through forumotion, you can't because the domain is with them.

Hello,

That means you can't have the subdomain. The domain name has to be in your registrar account for you to change the settings.

No probs, glad I could help.

If you want the subdomain you can buy the domain and put it in your GoDaddy account for a fee of $15 though.

Hello,

The loading took only a second for me. Goofy

Anyway, I tried to access forum.virtuoz-guilde.com, it works fine. What do you want to do from here?

In that case, you have to create a www CNAME pointing to your forum address. And provide the new link into your admin panel. You might need to wait a while before validating it with Forumotion as updating the DNS settings might take a while to take effect.

Hello,

You have to wait for the servers to make that change, try a couple of hours later.
