  1. Thanks for the amazing write up. I have tring taking my blog to a top level domain but don’t know how. Your article have helped me a lot. Thanks once again. By azoka

  2. Of course it’s very good that you explain this to your readers although it’s strange that a redirect is needed in the end to make things work. usa.weloveourhost.com/godaddy.html makes clear why Godaddy’s technical support is worth nothing, so I assume that asking the company’s support to do this for the customer, is not an option. Thanks for posting this solution!

  3. Hello friend,
    I’ve been using godaddy’s domain provider for years now, actually I don’t see anything wrong with that, but when it comes to hosting a website, I won’t recommend godaddy to someone although I’ve never used their hosting plan but I’ve seen lot of cases where people complain about that, anyway thanks for adding up to this topic.
    Have a wonderful weekend.
