    CNAME and using the forum as a sub-domain

    My domain is

    I've had my forum running as for 2 years now, minor issues, no complaints. I'll renew the subscription for one more year within 5 days

    I created this CNAME entry
    forum 14400
    I'm aware it is said that it should be but my zone editor doesn't allow it, so it has to be with the final dot missing

    Now if I ping it's translated to

    Danis-MacBook-Pro:~ Dani$ ping
    PING ( 56 data bytes
    Request timeout for icmp_seq 0
    Request timeout for icmp_seq 1
    Request timeout for icmp_seq 2
    So it looks right for my stupid and illiterate eyes, DNS translates it...but it doesn't work, so it cannot be right

    At the very same time, my forum which you can visit here,, doesn't apply CSS

    What should I do?

    Thanx in advance
