    It is a little bit complicated, but hope some one can help.

    I've purchased a forum, using a sub-domain name like bbs.mywebsite.com.

    All the files will be moved to my new dedicated server.

    I'd like to use a new domain name for it, like www.newname.com

    but still to not lose current memebers, still we want to keep bbs.mywebsite.com working as before.

    I have 5 IP availble and want to allocate one of them to the new domain name www.newname.com
    ======================================================
    Now, question, what should I do, can some one give me instruction step by step please, to make 2 domains both bbs.mywebsite.com and www.newname.com working properly. don't want to use redirect.

    Now what I can think of is, add www.newname.com to my account, and change DNS to point to my nameserver, then copy the whole forum under new website. I dont know if this way is correct. Then I don't know how to link the original forum address to the new space.

    thank you very much for your help .

    You can create an A record for ‘bbs’ in mywebsite.com and forward it to the dedicated IP address of your mywebsite.com.
