Domain Won't Forward To New Domain

I have a Blogger blog and recently bought a new domain to use. I am trying to have my old domain (www.livethepreplife.com) forward to my new domain (www.blissfullybrooke.com) but I can't figure out how to do that. When I type in http://livethepreplife.com it forwards, but if I try to go to www.livethepreplife.com I get a 404 error message. How can I get it so www.livethepreplife.com will redirect to www.blissfullybrooke.com?

Re: Domain Won't Forward To New Domain

Edit a CNAME on the old domain.  There should already be one for host www pointing to ghs.google.com, just change it to the @ symbol.

 

Host: www

Points to: @

Re: Domain Won't Forward To New Domain

Okay that worked so now if I type in livethepreplife.com it goes to blissfullybrooke.com, but if I try to go to a specific blog post (i.e. http://www.livethepreplife.com/2017/12/velvet-pearls.html) it takes me to a GoDaddy error page. How can I fix that?

This one works - www.myelderadvocatefranchise.com/blog/

but this one won't - http://www.myelderadvocatefranchise.com/form-test/

Re: Domain Won't Forward To New Domain

Hi @JankoM. Our forwarding service won't work if the path you include with the domain has special characters in it. That's why /blog redirects but /test-form does not. Sorry. Man Sad

 

@brookekbutler. Our forwarding service does not work to match paths. There's another discussion about this here if you want more details.

Re: Domain Won't Forward To New Domain

I am trying to forward my domain 1pi.co to http://www.doctorbrows.ca/1pi.htm and it did work for a while then it stopped working. I set it up as forward with masking. Why is it not working anymore?

Hi @Unelady. The forward seems to be working from here, though it looks like you've removed the masking. The site also appears to load within an iframe when I test it (which is what our masking uses). Perhaps you were able to get this figured out?

Re: Domain Won't Forward To New Domain

Hi JesseW,
Since the site was not loading anymore, i tried taking out the masking.

But I ask many people to test it all over the world and it doesn't seam to
work in most case.
Still not working from my place. Not on my two computers and not on my
phone neither. Smiley Sad
Not sure what to do anymore.

Re: Domain Won't Forward To New Domain

I am going to try the masking again. When I test the link on godaddy, it does work but not on most people computer.
