My domain name not resolving correctly, 6 random characters are being added to the path

My problem started yesterday (24/08/17). When I open a browser it is configured to my homepage hosted on my ISP and the name I have configured with godaddy resolves to the name my ISP gives me. This has worked fine for the past 8+ years. Now what is happening when I open a browser the resolved url now has extra characters, for example, there will be an added path like /TWedTZ on the end of the resolved url.

My homepage is a basic webpage with other url's, more like a bookmark page, nothing special at all. www.skozzyonline.com it should resolve to users.tpg.com.au/skozzy but often now those extra characters are added.

Where should I look to find out what is going on.

Domain Forwarding not working in Chrome on Android phone

I setup domain forwarding to go to https://runsignup.com/Race/OH/Stow/SMFChoirQuartetRelay 

 

It works on my desktop machine and in the Samsung Browser on my Galaxy S4, but when I try it using Chrome on my Samsung Galaxy S4 it resolves to  https://runsignup.com/Race/OH/Stow/SMFChoirQuartetRelay/LpgLZ/UbINZ/ .  Note:  if I clear browsing history and try again it doesn't work and the "random" characters at the end change to different characters.

 

 

 

 

Re: My domain name not resolving correctly, 6 random characters are being added to the path

Yep. Same problem for me. Naked URL works fine, distimor.org  , but www.distimor.org adds a random string at the end of the address. Then the page is not found.

 

Would love a solution because the link on the google search results is not working.

Re: Domain Forwarding not working in Chrome on Android phone

Same problem here, It's been a while since I started using http://catalogo.vapeclubsv.com to redirect to https://www.facebook.com/notes/vape-club-sv/catálogo-de-sabores-e-liquid-vape-club-sv/18884193447350..., but lately I've noticed it resolves to https://www.facebook.com/notes/vape-club-sv/catálogo-de-sabores-e-liquid-vape-club-sv/18884193447350..., which as you can tell, it adds QWpnZ/ToUUZ/WUdMZ/ at the end of the URL.
I'm using a Nexus 6 with Android 7.1.1. Firefox works perfect on same device.

Re: Domain Forwarding not working in Chrome on Android phone

Same problem here.  Getting stings like "/mdxoz" and "/zchsz" added to the end of the URL I am forwarding to.  Started about a week ago.

Has anyone reported this to GoDaddy support?

Re: Domain Forwarding not working in Chrome on Android phone

BTW this does not happen every time.  Sometimes the forwarded domain loads fine but I get the junk string about 30 - 40% of the time.  This is true on every browser that I have tested including:

Android Chrome

Safari - iOS

Safari - Mac

Chrome - Mac

Firefox - Mac

Re: Domain Forwarding not working in Chrome on Android phone

Wow -- I thought I was the only person experiencing this issue.  I spoke with GoDaddy support and they say it's an issue on my server end.  Just for fun I changed the name servers to my host and disabled forwarding.  Surprise, the issues are no longer there -- no funny characters being added to the end of my domain.  It only happens when I do forwarding of domain through GoDaddy (with or without masking, doesn't matter).  I tried doing direct links in the forward and not leaving ending slashes, but it still bugs out randomly.

Re: Domain Forwarding not working in Chrome on Android phone

Experiencing this issue too. I can confirm that it is definitely an issue on GoDaddy's side. This only occurs when I am using their forwarding.

 

I've spent several hours researching about this and apparently this has been an issue for GoDaddy for years and they continue to deny that it is an issue on their end, even though it's obvious that they are wrong.

 

Honestly this is absolutely unacceptable and we will be switching to another registrar. I suggest everyone reading this to do the same.

Re: My domain name not resolving correctly, 6 random characters are being added to the path

We started seeing this on forwarded domains a few days ago. We've contacted GoDaddy support 4 times now. Even provided them with a video showing the random characters that they requested. Even with proof, they just fall back to the standard troubleshooting stuff that first line support people use. The latest call said it's a caching issue and wait 24 hours!   Yeah, like caching creates random 5 letter strings and never the same one twice.

 

I purchased a domain from NameCheap and forwarded to the page, just like the Godaddy domain is set up. We've done extensive testing over the last 12 hours and the NameCheap forwarded domain hasn't failed once.

 

I've been a Godaddy customer for over 20 years and have a pile of domains. I don't appreciate the tone GoDaddy support is giving us. One call the support rep was rude. They are saying it is our problem.

If you search this issue, you'll see that it's an issue that has existed for years with GoDaddy.  I've never found a resolution for this problem. Why is GoDaddy trying to hide this problem??

Re: My domain name not resolving correctly, 6 random characters are being added to the path

Hi we're getting a similar issue. In the last couple days random characters have been added to the middle of the url. As an example mysite.com/page/32 becomes mysite.com/RDFTR/page/32 which then creates a 404. 

 

It's only happening sporadically which makes it even more frustrating.

Re: My domain name not resolving correctly, 6 random characters are being added to the path

This is a screen shot from firefox's developer tools when a forwarded domain fails.  Doesn't this show the DNS resolution is generating these random characters?   I sent this to GoDaddy support and they said their developers refused to look at it (I kid you not!).  They are standing firm that this issue is my problem. They now have me contacting my ISP because tracert showed a timeout on one hop, even though I told them that I have multiple clients experiencing this in different areas (and different ISPs).

Re: My domain name not resolving correctly, 6 random characters are being added to the path

I contected support too, the guy I spoke to said he loaded my webpage on chrome and firefox and he didnt see a problem. Asked me to contact my ISP as he believes it is their problem.

So I called my ISP, spoke to a tech, and also another via the web support desk. They tested a few things and said it is not coming from their end and it is a GoDaddy problem. I ask the ISP to not stop there and if someone could test it a few times each day, so far no response but still waiting.

So the are blaming each other.

The problem is still going on, like others have said in the replies, its not all the time, it seems random.

I went next door who have a different ISP and tried my URL on their laptop, all was fine, then rebooted the laptop and the extra characters on the forwarded url were there. Closed the browser and opened it and was normal. So it is random for sure.

Anyhow at the moment it is 5 random characters, mixed of upper and lower case. I thought it was 6 extra at first.

It is annoying but only GoDaddy can find out what is going on.

I have tried many browsers, different OS's and different PC including Virtual OS's from Windows, Linux, iOS, Android (like phones tablets etc) and all get the same thing from time to time.

Re: My domain name not resolving correctly, 6 random characters are being added to the path

Hello everyone here, I was facing the same issue and haven't noticed before a huge drop in my website traffic. Even I contacted godaddy many time to look into the issue, but they replied same as did to others.

 

I don't know what the exact problem is, but I have found a workaround. You need to make small modifications in your .htaccess file linked with the domain.

 

Add lines at the top of your .htaccess file.

RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^[a-zA-Z]{5}/(.*)$ $1 [R=301,L]

Note change the line {5} to {6} if you are getting 6 random characters.

Re: My domain name not resolving correctly, 6 random characters are being added to the path

I have read through this entire form. No one who has the problem has said what website host or platform they are using. This problem is happening to me as well, random characters are being added to URLs redirected through GoDaddy.

 

I am using BlueHost as my website host. What host are you using?

I am using WordPress for my websites platform. What are you using?

 

My notes from trying to diagnose the issue:

  • I used CloudFlare on some of my websites and I have noticed that the error occurs on both CF websites and non-CF websites. It seems to occur more often on CF websites.
  • I have tested several domain extensions, including: .net, .com, .info, .us, .org. All domain extensions seem to have the problem.
  • It occurs in all desktop browsers that I have tested.

Does GoDaddy participate in this form?

Re: My domain name not resolving correctly, 6 random characters are being added to the path

GoDaddy does not know what's going on, but it seems very much like a GoDaddy / DNS issue as it happens on many different domains that go to many different places.

 

If you're forwarding to static files (like I am) you don't have an htaccess file to change, thus the aforementioned workaround won't fix it.

 

I created an error document with the following code to redirect to the desired location. It's very hacky, but it works

 

<script>
var uHost = location.hostname;
var uPath = location.pathname;
var uHref = location.href;
var errEle = document.getElementById('error-div');
var loading = document.getElementById('loading');
var qStr = uHref.split('?x=')[1];
if(qStr == 'sm') { if(uPath.split('/').length > 2){ location.assign('https://' + uHost + '/' + uPath.split("/")[2].toLowerCase()); } else { errEle.style.opacity = '1'; loading.style.opacity = '0'; } } else { location.assign(uHref.toLowerCase() + '?x=sm'); }
</script>

Re: My domain name not resolving correctly, 6 random characters are being added to the path

Same problem here, reported recently by customers (we have been using GoDaddy for several years). We have nearly a hundred redirected sites (302) and they are mainly to pages we don't have direct access to. Where would I put this script solution? 

 

Once we get to the site with the extra characters (and a 404 error) if we remove the characters then everything appears to work okay...

Re: My domain name not resolving correctly, 6 random characters are being added to the path

Response from GoDaddy Support:

 

"im thinking its a somewhat of a glitch with the forwarding and the hosting
the redirect that is giving out this character WPcZZ/ usually is a blank folder in the hosting file

 

that is why it has that kind of redirect on it


because if we are going to put the blame with the forwarding it doesnt do anything but to forward the domain to the URL

and the forwarding doesnt have the power to change the URL of the other domain"

 

I will try contacting BlueHost to see if they will point their fingers back at GoDaddy.

I know it is coming from godaddy because it is happening on 2 different domains host at 2 different places.

We had the same issue and it took several calls and proof that the 302s redirects were happening on their side before the main 301 redirect for them to actually acknowledge the bug. 
They had absolutely no visibility on when they would solve it and told me to go to another provider if it was critical. What a bad service!

To prove it I showed a screenshot of a curl.

Re: My domain name not resolving correctly, 6 random characters are being added to the path

We are also experiencing this, e.g., with:

 

 
At least two Godaddy agents have disclosed this is an internally-noted and known bug they are supposedly working on. However, it is currently only a "bug report" which is a very low-status type of ticket -- there's another internal buzzword for issues considered serious and worth investing immediate resources on.
 
Even as they say these serious symptoms are part of a known error on their end, Godaddy refuses to provide a ticket number on the case, and - worse - refuses to tell me they'll ever reach back out to me, or proactively keep me in the loop in any way, including if and when the issue is resolved.
 
I have spent about 2.5 hours total on the phone with the, including circling back and forth many times about that communication problem. They no longer have email support, so we're to call in ad hoc and start over with new agents to try to get more info on the status.
 
Any new info or advice greatly appreciated.

Thanks to ribbles above and Daniele in this other thread for a quick temporary workaround. "So how about redirecting to http://www.yourdomain.com/? In this case, when godaddy adds the extra characters to the URL, they become parameters and don't cause a 404."

 

Adding the question mark to the end of your forwarding URL works.

Re: My domain name not resolving correctly, 6 random characters are being added to the path

I found a temporary solution until GoDaddy resolves this issue. Won't work in all use cases, but works to forward the URL to a new domain without preserving any query parameters, while preventing a 404.

 

Append a query string to the forwarded URL in GoDaddy's forwarding setting. Example:

 

https://destinationdomain.com/?source=forward

 

Because GoDaddy's URL slug is appended sporadically, it doesn't always show up. So visiting the source domain in these circumstances presented the following results for me:

 

https://source.com/

https://destinationdomain.com/?source=forward

 

https://source.com/

https://destinationdomain.com/?source=forward%2FKjbKZ%2F

(GoDaddy's added URL slug would have been /KjbKZ/ in the above result)

 

https://source.com/?test=true

https://destinationdomain.com/?source=forward%2F%3Ftest%3Dtrue

(GET query parameter is not preserved)

Re: My domain name not resolving correctly, 6 random characters are being added to the path

I discovered that this problem is not only a GoDaddy forwarding problem, but also a problem with GoDaddy hosted domains.  I have a domain that is registered and hosted with GoDaddy.  Oftentimes when I refresh my GoDaddy hosted webpage, it automatically adds the random letters. 

 

GoDaddy appears to be very hush, hush to the customers about what is causing the problem. I am going to take a wild guess and say that these problems are a result of GoDaddy's new Domain Connect 2.0 in which we now have a new ugly CNAME in our DNS managers:

 

CNAME     _domainconnect     _domainconnect.ss.domaincontrol.com

 

From reading this article below, it seems their ultimate purpose is to expand their sales by putting every domain to use (nevermind all the grief that it causing their customers).

Re: My domain name not resolving correctly, 6 random characters are being added to the path

Good news! I found a simple solution to this issue that is plaguing so many of us....

 

There's a great free service called WWWizer.com which will handle the redirect for you. All you need to do is create an A Record that points to their IP address and they'll 301 your naked domain traffic over to your www'd domain. 

 

Specifically this solution is to solve the issue of pointing your naked domain (domain.com) to your www.domain.com without encountering the 404 error caused by the random string of letters after the / that GoDaddy's redirect is causing.

 

Step 1: delete your current forward.

Step 2: change the "value" in your A record from "Forwarded" to the WWWizer IP address.

Step 3: test using third party emulators to ensure that your naked domain is resolving properly.

Step 4: help spread the word to others that are affected by this issue.

 

Ultimately, this is just a workaround, not a permanent solution IMO. I am in the process of transferring all of my domains to Google Domains. I have lost all confidence and trust in GoDaddy based on their extremely poor handling of this forwarding issue.

Re: My domain name not resolving correctly, 6 random characters are being added to the path

I was on the phone with a rep today about this same issue. It is a known situation and the developers are working on the situation. What galls me is that they have had over a month to fix this situation but have failed to A, resolve the issue, and B, notify their customers about this colossal hole in their subdomain forwarding protocol. I have been in the internet game for 20 years now and it is my guess that they were attempting an advanced internal tracking scheme where data would have been sent back to their home server but somehow ended up appending their random hash to the end of the destination url instead. Seems like they should have done more dev inside a sandbox before nuking their old system. My recommendation to Godaddy is to rollback to the old forwarding protocol until they get this situation sorted out and functioning correctly.

Re: My domain name not resolving correctly, 6 random characters are being added to the path

We have the same issue.

 

We have hundreds of domain names registered via GoDaddy. Often times these domains are for vanity purposes that simply forward to a specific page on a primary domain name.

 

I have attempted to get an explanation and resolution from GoDaddy several times, but they have repeatedly denied the problem. 

 

Our time frame lines up to with your time frame (end of August 2017) as evidenced by our Google Analytics page views, Search Console 404s and manual reviewing the random character redirect chain using Chrome Dev Tools.

 

None of our systems were changed and many of these redirects have been in place for years. There is also a somewhat related GoDaddy bug that they have confirmed … when a forwarded domain renews, some of the settings, such as HTTPS Status Code (Forward Type) and masking can change!

 

Regardless, redirecting with 301 or 301, masking or no masking, doesn't seem to make a difference. They random string is being included in a redirect chain that sometimes correctly resolves to the specified destination. I will try to append a query string as others have suggested as a workaround.

 

I can say with near certainty this is a GoDaddy issue, despite their support team stating the contrary.

Re: My domain name not resolving correctly, 6 random characters are being added to the path

GoDaddy's protestations to the contrary, it really is their problem. Myriad people with different hosts are experiencing this anomaly. Although not a permanent fix, this workaround should work for folks using forwarding with masking. Along with adding the "www" to the domain name, inserting a "?" after the URL (www.website.com/?) will cause the web page to display as expected.

The letters added by GoDaddy are a "query string" (Google it for more info). In this case, domain forwarding, adding the ? causes the server to ignore what follows the ? and you'll actually see the desired web page. For example, www.website.com/? may return www.website.com/?WFOIJ in the browser location bar, but the actual web page will be displayed instead of the dreaded 404 Not Found. You can test this by entering "bing.com/?12345" into your browser. The URL will show "http://www.bing.com/?12345" but only the index page for Bing will display. This is just a workaround and GoDaddy definitely needs to get this fixed.
