Gotcha! There are many DNR out there, some common name are Big Rock, Go Daddy. You would need to get a Domain Hosting and then point the URL to your Force.com URL's. Hope this helps.

It doesn't seem to be possible to remove force.com from the domain name, however, you can setup a redirect such that your users will go to saravanansfd-developer-edition.ap1.com and they will be redirected to saravanansfd-developer-edition.ap1.force.com

Saravanan - This cannot be done in a Developer edition, However in Production - >

Create a branded, custom Web address, such as http://www.mycompanyideas.com, by registering through a domain
name registrar. Create CNAME records to redirect your branded domain and subdomains to your Force.com domain
without exposing the force.com name in the URL. It can take up to 48 hours for your Force.com domain to become
available on the Internet. Custom Web addresses aren't supported for sandbox or Developer Edition organizations.

Please go through the Implementation Guide to help you further.

Ok, A couple of question here ? Are you trying to do this in your Developer Edition ? Did you register your Site thorugh a Domain Name Registrar?
Saravanan @CreationSaravanan @Creation
No, I am trying in production .yes i have registered the site through Domain name registrar. Do you mean Domain name registrar is the step-->Domain?
Prashanth SamudralaPrashanth Samudrala
Not sure what you meant by this "Do you mean Domain name registrar is the step-->Domain?". If you did register a Domain name through a registrar (ex- bigrock,godaddy etc..) then create CNAME records to redirect it to your Force.com URL. check the Implementaion Guide, Link below.

You are telling 'If you did register a Domain name through a registrar' in your previous reply right.I am asking from where do I do this(register a Domain name through a registrar')?
