so we switched to vbulletin a couple of months ago, after a rouge admin took over our .com domain name. We started the site back up on the .net domain name.

Today we finally got our .com domain back.

We would like to switch back the site to the .com with the current vbulletin forum.

both domains are the same other than the .com/.net
both hosted on the same host, on the same account
both on the same registrar

whats the easiest way keep everything happy and be relatively painless to the user?

thanks

Well, why don't you move all the content to the .com?
And set up a 301 redirect from .net to the .com? Would make things very painless for users.
