To apply your domain to your forum you go:

Administration Panel > General > Forum - Forum Address > Personalized Domain Name. You then type in your domain name. I am guessing you should next receive a confirmation email from GoDaddy about this change.

Let us know how it goes and best of luck!

Thanks Pedro,

My problem is configuring the external domain to work with my forum.

Quote :
Configuration of an external domain name.

When you choose the sub-domain which you wish to use on your forum (forum.my_domain, for example, is a sub-domain of my_domain), you have to create the corresponding CNAME entrance in the DNS administrator of your domain: a CNAME entrance allows to point an url towards the other one in a transparent way. in this way, you can link forum.my_domain to adress.my_forum.

Recorder of domains names have different interfaces, and thus different methods to create such CNAME.
However, in a general way, the process takes place as follows:

* Connect to your user account on the site of your domain name provider, and go to the DNS management.
* Check that the chosen sub-domain is not already used.
* In the generally entitled field "source", "origin", or "alias" enter the prefix of sub-domain (i.e. "Forum" if you want to use the sub-domain forum.my_domain).
* In the generally entitled field "destination" or " target host ", enter the original url of your forum, adress.my_forum.
* You will maybe have to inform the TTL (Time To Live): give the maximal possible value.

I need to know how to setup the above configuration.
