Lately I've been getting the following message in BOINC Event Log:
11/8/2015 9:30:28 AM | 123numbers.org: Van Der Waerden Numbers | You used the wrong URL for this project. When convenient, remove this project, then add http://www.123numbers.org/

However, when I go to both websites:
http://www.vdwnumbers.org/
http://www.123numbers.org/

... they BOTH say, on the main page:

To participate, Download and run BOINC, and add Project 'vdwnumbers.org'.


Please tell us which URL is correct.
And, if the website has the old URL, then PLEASE update it on both websites.

Thanks,
Jacob

Both URLs work, but we changed a setting that should get rid of that error.

I'm trying to coordinate the correct (preferred) URL to BOINCstats.
http://boincstats.com/en/forum/10/10465,1

So which one is the correct (preferred) URL?
http://www.vdwnumbers.org/
?

The question has nothing to do with credit.

The question relates to which URL should be used, by either a user or a BOINC Account Manager, to attach to your project.

I understand that both should theoretically work, however I ask again - Which is preferred?

My computer is telling me that the URL "http://123number.org" is the wrong URL and to detatch and reattach when convenient.
This I have done and the message went away.

So from that I have to conclude that while both URLs work, http://vdwnumbers.org is the correct or main URL.
It seems that http://123numbers.org just redirects to http://vdwnumbers.org.

Plus the project name changed from 123 numbers to vdwnumbers so vdwnumbers appears to be the preferred name and URL.
