Newbie Question

#1
This may be more of a general computer question than a Xenforo question.

Can you have more than one URL take you to the same Forum?

Example can I have blackdog.com and blackdog.net take me to the same forum?

Thanks

You need to have the domain added to your account with your webhost (usually, can do so yourself with add-on domains in cPanel) and update your name servers with whoever you registered your domain name though.

Thank you for your fast replies. I am getting ready to pull the trigger on buying Xenforo and wanted to have a little more of my plan in place before I do so. Thanks

Btw, it's never a good idea to have the same content on 2 different domains, if you want to have Google to find you :)

That was fast thank you for the reply. Is this something that is done through the Xenforo software or through the webhost side of things?
Code:
server {
    listen 80;
    server_name [URL='http://www.apple4me.us']www.apple4me.us[/URL] apple4me.us;
    return 301 [URL]http://apple4me.net$uri;[/URL]
}

server {
    listen 80;
    server_name [URL='http://www.apple4me.org']www.apple4me.org[/URL] apple4me.org;
    return 301 [URL]http://apple4me.net$uri;[/URL]
}
server {
    listen 80;
    server_name [URL='http://www.apple4me.net;']www.apple4me.net;[/URL]
    return 301 [URL]http://apple4me.net$uri;[/URL]
}
server {
    listen 80;
    server_name apple4me.net;
is the way I handle it on nginx. ;)
BTW, the [URL stuff is apparently a bug in the code editor. Time to refer this post over into the reported bugs section.

Btw, it's never a good idea to have the same content on 2 different domains, if you want to have Google to find you :)
And that's why doing it the above way does not have it on different domains.... but allows you to have more than 1 domain (like the .net, .us, .org) all pointing at one site.
