Do I need to update my nameservers?
No, you should not update your name servers to make your domain name point to your forum. Instead you should add a CNAME DNS record.
If you want to make your whole domain name point to the forum instead of just a subdomain, then you can add a CNAME DNS record for www and then forward your root domain name to the www. For example, to point mydomain.com to the forum, you'd add a CNAME DNS record for www.mydomain.com and then you'd set up forwarding for mydomain.com to www.mydomain.com. That way your forum will load if someone enters www.mydomain.com or mydomain.com into their browser address bar.
If you need help, you can send these instructions to the support team of your domain name provider or you can contact us and we can set up your domain name for you. Be sure to provide your username and password for your account with your domain name provider or a screenshot of their DNS Settings page.
