Pointing NameCheap domain to goDaddy hosting

I have been trying to point a domain to my server but I am still getting "server cannot be found" error. I have put in the correct name servers on the domain account and changed the DNS 'a' record to reflect my server IP address. 


I contacted NameCheap customer support, but they said that there was an error on the hosting end. I understand that the site could just be propagating, but it has been down for a while so I am not sure if that is it. Not sure what information would be helpful so just let me know what you need.





Hi @jackp317, thanks for posting.

Feel free to follow up with your domain name and the IP address of your hosting plan, and I'm sure a member of the Community will be happy to take a look at this for you.

Hello, did you find a way to fix this issue? I also encounter this kind of issue I already changed the nameservers & DNS on my Namecheap but still, it's not working.
