stop forum spam is already already included in our checks with the IPS Spam service, an additional add on is not needed. Setup your spam service settings properly, along with a question and answer validation, and you should be good. If you need help with this, please file a ticket and we can review your settings for you.
When you purchase a hosted plan, you pick a local/temp url, you can use this forever, or you can later assign your own domain name to the site. Here is a guide on the options available http://www.invisionpower.com/support/guides/_/install-and-getting-started/using-your-own-domainsub-domain-for-ips-community-in-the-cloud-r305
The sort answer is you can use your own domain or sub domain and that is all people will see.
We offer a full range of community cloud hosting options here, so we don't allow discussions for other providers, if you have any questions on hosing with us, please feel free to submit a ticket and we can assist you. We offer a full turn key solution and you can put your hosting worries behind you. If you need advise on other providers, using a hosting forum would be the best place, such as webhostingtalk or others.
To further clarify, this is only for the default vbseo format or re-writes, there are many options in vbseo, and we only support the default one. If you use any of the advanced re-writes in vbseo, it's recommended that it be removed, re-writes put in place to get back to stock vb urls, then we will re-write those etc.
For a full license purchase as above, it comes with 6 months of support directly from our staff in our support ticket system, the ability to download the latest versions of the software, our chat services, our IPS Spam service, and the Visual skin editor. Now you're asking yourself... "WOW, all for 25.00?" yes that's right, after 6 months, then it's only 25.00 to renew the forum app for another 6 months of the above services.
We already have this in place actually, access info is stored per license, and is available in each ticket as a drop down as you mentioned. You can provide these details by going to Your Purchases and selecting the relevant package. We even have a notice when submitting a ticket to ensure your access details are up to date etc.
