my naked domain is not redirecting to www. i recently transfered my domain from web4africa to godaddy, since then have been having issues when i try to use my naked domain it keeps saying 404 error
Solved! Go to Solution.
My website only works with a www. in front of it. How can I change it so it works without www.
I've had GoDaddy for many years with other domains and this particular one is doing it for some reason. It is a redirect to an e-store.
HI @lymemarketing, thanks for posting.
This is usually an issue with the DNS settings. Generally this occurs when a site is pointing to a service using the "WWW" cname instead of the "@" A Record or IP address. You may want to follow up with your store/site provider to see if they have another way to point your domain name to their service.
My site won't load without entering www. before the domain. My domain is joeportolese.com and unless www.joeportolese.com is entered, it redirects to the default GoDaddy page.
I'm the process of building a site so I'm redirecting my site to a service called Band Page. Pretty sure I have the www CNAME set up correctly (joeportolese.bandpage.com), but I'm thinking I must have missed another setting. Any ideas?
hi i also suffering from this type of problems. I also want to know the solution. my domain is http://www.wilburtech.com/
Plz give me suggestion
@oleevergist to Clarify
Will need more information to determine what is causing the problem. There are 2 things that can cause issues.

To fix you will need to follow the steps to Delete DNS Records for oleevergist.com
That should fix your Domain. Looking at Blogspot site it states you can't use oleevergist.com and require to use a subdomain like www.oleevergist.com. Since that is working you can follow the above steps and that should fix your domain oleevergist.com
@oleevergist Due to the Standards that state you can not use a CNAME for your Domain, Google does not allow you to set oleevergist.com as your domain. To get around this you will need t omake a few changes. You will need 2 DNS Records to make this work. one for oleevergist.com and one for www.oleevergist.com Currently you have the following.
A Record: oleevergist.com 18.104.22.168
CNAME: www.oleevergist.com ghs.google.com.
To make this work correctly you will need to Delete the A record for oleevergist.com Once deleted you will need to Add a CNAME Record for oleevergist.com pointing it to www.oleevergist.com This will allow both www.oleevergist.com and oleevergist.com to point to your Blogspot site.
i'm not getting it right...... please is there a way you can help me do it for me..... have tried everything ,i'm not just getting it...... have never had this kind of issues before. don't know why this is giving me problem. is there a way you can help me do it from your system over there, please.........
the thing is that i seriously don't know the CNAME record to add for oleevergist.com for it to pointing to www.oleevergist.com
please recheck that you have hosting for this domain. That the transaction went through correctly. Please contact support for further investigation.
