I am having the following issue and after searching far and wide, I need assistance.
I have the following site: http://splitrailfenceco.com/ which works appropriately if you go directly to the web address. If you attempt to access the site via IP Address http://126.96.36.199/ and/or setup any other site's DNS to forward to this domain, I am getting the GoDaddy "Future Home of Something Quite Cool" page.
Has anyone been able to resolve this issue? If so, can you please point me in the right direction.
@easton21jd are you on a shared hosting plan? Either linux/windows shared hosting or managed wordpress?
If so, you can't access the site via direct IP address.
If you are on a VPS / dedicated server, you have to configure your webserver to return the WP install as the default site.
Hope it helps!
@easton21jd if you want to do that, you should use the CNAME record instead of A. Because with a CNAME you can put a domain name instead of an IP address 😉
Hope it helps!
Thanks for the reply! I have made the suggested changes in DNS within Wix as follows:
The results are as follows:
- siteworksco.com forward to "Site Cannot Be reached" Page.
- www.siteworksco.com forwards to "Future Home of Something Cool" page still.
i checked DNS checker prior to testing to validate that all DNS changes had gone through.
I got the same error when trying to access my site using chrome. However I can access it without any problem on Safari. What I have to do now ?
