A: XenForo is a limited company, registered in the UK. The company has a website and a distinctive logo. The company also now has a history, which is currently short, but is growing. Therefore the company can demonstrate the right of trademark.
With this in mind, the company wants to protect that trademark, understandably. Therefore, we are not giving permission for XenForo to be used, as part of a site name or domain name (or any name).
Clearly this has potential to become (or has already become) an emotional matter and really, it is quite simple. The point is simply about protecting XenForo trademark. We would be negligent if we did not protect our trademark; for the benefit of our customers future. No one wants to become involved in wrangling over trademark issues, for obvious reasons and we ask that we are not put in a position to have to consider whether to take action.
And this is the equivalent configuration screen in CyberDuck:
XenForo must be running in debug mode for the WebDAV connection to be active, and we would recommend that you restrict access to admindav.php through your web server (allowing only your own IP access) and also limit debug mode to your IP address alone, by including code like this in your config.php file:
if ($_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'] == '127.0.0.1')
$config['debug'] = true;
(replacing 127.0.0.1 with your own IP address).
While both Windows and Mac provide their own WebDAV clients, neither is particularly good for this job, and we would recommend that you use a third party tool. The following tools have been extensively tested and shown to work very well:
