@chapewa31 your site is working fine! Smiley Very Happy

This is what I see: https://ibb.co/mExTJa

 

Maybe the problem is in your side. If you're on a windows machine I'd recommend you to clear the DNS cache. In order to do that, you have to open a cmd (command prompt) and run "ipconfig /flushdns". Then, I also recommend you to restart your browser.

 

After that, visit your site and let me know if it worked.

Change the CNAME record, not the A record. Add your domain name to the DNS their not the godaddy IP address. Hope this helps.
