Adding a forum in subdomain of a site with a connected domain

Recommended Posts

Site URL: http://plavoizeleno.rs


For our site I would like to add a phpBB forum. We are using a connected domain, being that squarespace is not supporting the domain that we wanted. 

We are considering an option to use a hosting with our domain provider and to host a forum in a subdomain of our domain, for example to have http://forum.plavoizeleno.rs and to just add a link on out site to that page. I would like to confirm that something like that is possible being that we are using a connected domain.

I already tried linking the external forum created for free just to try it out, and it worked.

This is exactly what I would like to do, please reply in the forum if you manage to set it up (and how...)

My domain is with namecheap. Do I simply register a new subdomain with them...connect that to squarespace... and then....?

I did it. I bought a hosting plan with my domain provider, created a subdomain (forum.plavoizeleno.rs) and placed a phpBB forum into in. My domain provider gives several something like four subdomains that I could create under the registered domain. I could register more with a bigger hosting plan. You usually get several e-mail addresses which also comes in handy in cases like these. Then I created a link within the site, and it works perfectly for now.
