Parking domains
« on: June 23, 2017, 11:55:13 am »
Does this mean that I can buy a custom url for my forum and have that as my forums web address? Does this affect serch engine indexing, and load time for the forum?

Yes you can. Doesn't impact load time.
SEO will take a little to change over.

I don't get this bit You can now try to change over the urls on your forum to your domain name.

Sorry its the first time ive ever done this.... so do I have submit new sitemaps, and give everyone the new url? Or will it redirect?
