UPDATE - you can now do this in your administration control panel with just a few clicks, it requires no action from us anymore. For support with this new module, click here: topic3607.html

---------------------------------

We've worked the kinks out, and now you can have your very own domain name powered by ProphpBB. See an example forum here: headlight.ekam.org.uk - as you can see everything is smooth, fast and powered by our forum hosting service. You get all the benefits of using ProphpBB (hosting reliability, search engine friendly url's, ease of use, template installs and easy logo / image / css modification, etc.) while being able to use your own domain.

See the tutorial make your requests in this topic here: topic133.html

But a simplified how-to is as easy as 1-2-3 (umm 4)

Step 1. Have a domain name, of course. I recommend Godaddy but you can use any registrar you want.
Step 2. Point your domain's A RECORD to our IP, which is 207.58.184.51
Step 3. Use this service to check your domain (or subdomain) IP, might take a few hours to propagate.
Step 4. Let me know what your domain name and forum url is, and we'll take care of the rest.

This is, of course, free : )

The service is free. The domain name you must purchase.

Another A-Record wouldn't be a good idea, because then you'd have duplicate content accross two domains. It's best to choose one or the other. If you have a hosting account you could place an .htaccess in the public_html folder and redirect requests for www calls to the non-www domain.

No one is getting domains for free - they are purchasing them through godaddy.com or 1and1.com (or other). They then set their A-Record to direct their domain to their prophpbb.com powered forum.

As Rich said, there isn't anything that Prophpbb can do about this. Domains are purchased apart from here, and all MD can do is point your forum to your domain. You would need to purchase your domain separately without us.

If you wanted a free subdomain (but not a tld) then you can go to co.cc and register one for free there.

Edit : Misleading Information

Thats not a domain - thats a subdomain.

You can make .co.cc work like a proper domain though :s_smile
