Thanks Admin and Sibyl

I thought there might be a little more to getting my domain set up.

Sibyl...
The link came back as...
Invalid access detected.

I will go there tomorrow and try and get it set up correctly. 

Thanks again for all your help. :)

Forum Url: http://letstalkarthritis.smfforfree4.com

Hi,

I went to my Domain Registrar and added the information needed to use my my domain name instead of a sub domain name.(nameserver and ISP to Smfforfree4 Server and after doing as the instructions said, (I received a success message after I changed it)...I then added my domain name to be parked on your server, in the Domain Manager section.  All that was pretty clear to me but the end information left me hanging.  Could someone explain the color blue information for me?  Thanks

********************************************************************************************************************

Step 2: - Add the domain to our system

Enter your domain name that you wish to park
http://www(added my domain name)


Final Step

After the nameservers have been added takes about 24 to 48 hours for the DNS changes to take affect. (understand this)

You can now try to change over the urls on your forum to your domain name. (not sure about this)

Domains
letstalkarthritis.net VERIFY URL click on verify link if you see 1 you can update the url. Update Forum Url   (not totally understanding this)  (I did click the Verify link and it brought me to a parked page website with my domain name.  Was that suppose to happen?  After 24/48 hours have elapsed what do I do then...recheck to see where the URL link takes me?)

Reset Default Forum Url to orginal (understand this)

Hope I did everything right, cause I feel pretty much  like a dumb blonde right now... ???

Doesn't seem right

Pinging letstalkarthritis.net [208.73.210.50] with 32 bytes of data:

Currently it is setup for

Domain servers in listed order:

        NS1.DOMAINSERVICE.COM         67.99.176.12
        NS2.DOMAINSERVICE.COM         67.97.247.209
        NS3.DOMAINSERVICE.COM         64.49.213.231
        NS4.DOMAINSERVICE.COM         67.97.247.210

And that is not correct. Moniker you have to create the name server records then point the domain to those two records

Not sure what you mean by this.

This what I changed to my domain name
Nameserver 1:
Domain: ns1.yourdomainname.com
IP Address:66.135.48.75
Nameserver 2:
Domain: ns2.yourdomainname.com
IP Address:66.135.48.75

This is what I added to my Domain Manager at Moniker but there was only one (1) box for the ns1.letstalkarthritis.net and one (1) box for your IP. 

I did this according to their instructions.  (FAQs)

I have a copy of their instructions in case you would like to see them. 

Please let me know what way you think I am suppose to be doing this. I know for sure you have more knowledge about the 'How To's' than I do.  I just want to get it done correctly.  I would greatly appreciate any help you can offer me. :)

Why would that be.   I just went back into Moniker and this is the IP that is now listed in the DNS manager
66.135.48.75

Is this the wrong server IP for server4?  This is what should up in my Domain Manger today.

I am new to all this.  I may not be understanding the How To's.

I just checked your link and it looks like my domain name has be stolen and used by someone else.  I have had this domain name for almost a year but never tried to use it before.  Is this a possibility?

That could happen if you let the domain has expied but as long as it is inside your moniker account you control it.

No, it hasn't expired and I am on an automatic renew with them.  It will not expire until the 27th of this month anyway. I also have it protected.

www.sorejointcafe.com    ( formerly  http://sorejointcafe.smfforfree2.com )


Sorry to have to keep bringing this thread up but I need to know what to do next.

I went to my domain registrar and their support helped me get the domain names I wanted to park on your servers pointed in the right direction..

I now can use... www. myforumnames.com and my boards home pages will load.  I can't help but think there is another step that needs to done to complete the process...would that be step 2 in the Domain Mangers section?

Step 2: - Add the domain to our system

Enter your domain name that you wish to park

Hopefully this will end the need to keep bringing this thread up.

Thanks for your help. :)

Thanks for checking Sibyl.  I wasn't sure what to do next. 

I looked in the Purchase Ad free Credits and they still have my boards listed as @.smfforfree4.com and smfforfree2.com under the SMF For Free Hosting Featured Listing  

Will that change to my domain names or stay the same?  Also.  When I buy the ad free credits...Is there away to only let certain members have ad free pages?

I still have tons to learn but I am having fun learning.  :D

For the featured forum listing pm me the posts title's and tell what link they should go to and I will change them.

Currently for ad-free credits there is no way to let certain members have them but that is good idea that I will look into.
