Smugmug and Godaddy Gives Privacy error on browser

I have a domain I transferred from 1and1 to godaddy and I have it forwarded to a smugmug photography website.  However every time i try to goto site mattklimmer.com i get the privacy error.  If i enter  www.mattklimmer.com it works fine.  I have set forwarding on in my godaddy dns settings and ive forwarded it to https://www.mattklimmer.com which from what I read is the solution but still no success.

GoDaddy does not support HTTPS forwarding at the domain level - if you are using the forwarding feature it will only forward with HTTP://

 

Just to be clear / specific - You can forward HTTP://www.example.com to HTTP or HTTPS

 

You CANNOT forward HTTPS://www.example.com at all

 

This is specifically within the GoDaddy DNS Forwarding feature

Re: Smugmug and Godaddy Gives Privacy error on browser

I have tried both ways http and https and still get the same issue, I feel it has something to do with the transfer from 1and1 I feel that the DNS is a complete mess from the transfer and i really would like to start fresh.  However I feel that smugmug has done a super poor job on the domain forwarding within there system.

I just went to the site and it loaded fine without any privacy issue
