Domain redirect to specific pages has stopped working

About 18 months ago I set up my domain held on GoDaddy to redirect to my main website which is hosted elsewhere.  This has been working perfectly and we have been able to redirect to specific pages, i.e. visitkeswick.com/whats-on would redirect to keswick.org/whats-on.  I noticed today that this no longer works.  visitkeswick.com - keswick.org works but not if you add a page extension.  GoDaddy says it is down the hosts of my main website and they say the issue is with the company who are redirecting (GoDaddy).  We have just renewed the domain with GoDaddy and I did read elsewhere that someone else had an issue following renewal.  Any help would be welcome.

Hi @Vanyaxx

We haven't had any other reports of this regarding issues with our domain forwarding. Have you reached out to the host of your main site? Sounds like something they should be able to help you with.

Re: Domain redirect to specific pages has stopped working

This is happening to me also. My domain is in GoDaddy, and it redirects to a website hosted in MS Azure.

 

1) This URL redirects correctly to the Azure website:
http://wordyscore.com
2) This URL doesn't redirect, it displays the GoDaddy Destination Unknown page:
http://wordyscore.com/Home/LegalInfo
3) This URL works (no redirect required, it's what the above URL should redirect to):
http://wordyscorekeeper.azurewebsites.net/Home/LegalInfo

 

This was working recently.

We are having the same problem.  The domain (hosted by GoDaddy) forwards to another domain (hosted elsewhere). Direct requests for sub-pages used to forward as expected and no longer do, instead giving the GoDaddy Destination Unknown page.

Hi @vmhe@Vanyaxx@WilliamJWatts

I reached out to our advanced technical support team and it seems that our forwarding no longer allows the feature that allowed domain's to be forwarded to a specific path. The best options now is to either create a subdomain and forward it or create a redirect within your hosting account.
