Domain Set Up

Post by Jodi-86 » Mon Dec 04, 2017 5:29 pm

I'm in the process of getting a host and a domain name, but i'm at a loss as to how to set up the domain.

I was hoping to be able to have the forum at for example: www.******.co.uk but most forums seem to be www.*****.co.uk/phpbb or /forum or /community etc.

To do a quick test i grabbed some free hosting and then from a separate company a free domain but still couldn't get the forum to load without having phpbb at the end of the domain.

Is it possible to have the forum home page located at just www.my*domain.co.uk ?

The /phpbb is just the name of the folder you have your files in. If you move them up to your www or public_html folder, then you would not have a folder name in there.
