Hi. I want to purchase a domain for my free synthasite website, but I'd like to know a few things in advance. 1. Unfortunetly you guys' don't provide us with our own forum for our own website (a real forum, not a widget) so a friend of mine on his own website hosing (non synthasite - called Dreamhosting) has offered to host one for me, but I just want to know if I buy a domain here will I be able to use it on another host? 2. I'd also like to know, what's the benefits of a custom domain? Is there any new features, or do I even loose any features? Or is everything still the same as it would be without a custom domain?

Thanks, in advance.

PS 1 more question; is there any support for custom languages other then HTML like PHP or CSS on here?

Hi Dan,

1. You can buy a domain from us and use it elsewhere - we would need to make changes to your DNS settings to do so. If you could send an email to with the settings you would like changed (either nameservers or A Record), then we can do it for you.

2. You get the same features whether you have a SynthaSite subdomain or a purchased domain.

3. Unfortunately PHP or CSS can't be used on SynthaSite.

Let us know if you need any other information.
