    You don't. It's in their terms of conditions. You can't remove that or the copyright on the bottom of the page.

    Forget it.

    Looks like something wrong with either the configuration of your forum software or DNS settings.

    I'm willing to bet that the forum config was set incorrectly (check the domain, host domain, or whatever name SMF uses for such a setting in the control panel, and make sure it is set to www.autolounge.com.jm and that the only possible reference to "fatcow.com" in the SMF config is for the MySQL database host, which is probably "localhost" or "127.0.0.1" anyway).

    Also, I would honestly look into switching hosting providers, as this one is undoubtedly unreliable. I'd recommend taking a look around webhostingtalk.com to find a host which doesn't offer "Unlimited Hosting", as to my knowledge, there is no such thing as a hard drive with unlimited space, or a data pipe which is capable of handling unlimited traffic (complete false advertising on their part).

    Also, I'd say try to avoid registering your domain with the host (if I'm not mistaken, you did this. Definitely not life or death situation, but its less of a headache if you avoid it), as you will have difficulty transferring it if that need ever arises.

    Good luck :toast:

    I've opened your page in Internet Explorer 7.0 and I'm not experiencing your problem! Your hosting company can not be seen :)





    Edit:




    The forum link is fine, no mention of your host in the address bar :)
