Hi @Kingpese,

 

Welcome to the Community.

We're able to see your URL resolve in several browsers. You've noted that you're directing the domain to blogspot, a Google hosting. Take a look at your DNS and be sure you have included the zone files mentioned by their instructions below. 

 

  1. Go to your GoDaddy Domain Manager and access that domain's DNS.
  2. Create 4 A Records - all have a "Host" name of "@" (no quotes) and "points to" the following:
    216.239.32.21
    216.239.34.21
    216.239.36.21
    216.239.38.21
  3. Create a new CNAME entry.
  4. Enter the subdomain name, for example, "www".
  5. Type in the HOST name "ghs.googlehosted.com". This will point your URL to your Google site.
  6. Create a forwarding command below the DNS listings in this GoDaddy account
  7. Forward your domain to itself. For example, yourdomain.com should be forwarded to http://yourdomain.com. (Do not choose masking for this forward.)
  8. This should create a forwarding IP address in the A record of the DNS.

 

Complete the setup at Google using the following as a guide.

Domain redirection can be tricky sometimes. A few questions:

 

  • Are you redirecting it or trying to point the domain to the IP address of where you host your blog?
  • Where are you making the changes? Straight from the GoDaddy Dommain Management area?
  • If it's a standard redirection, what's the domain to actually get to your blog?

I am redirecting it. I have a blog site @ 9jadifference.blogspot.com, and I
went to my blog settings, and put the domain I obtained at godaddy "
www.9jadifference.com" there and followed the steps in redirecting it.
After some few hours I try opening the website but it wasnt connecting

After some few hours I try opening the website but it wasnt connecting. And different affiliate marketer are saying the site isn't opening

Its a standard redirection and the blog to my site is 9jadifference.blogspot.com

I also face this problem with my newly purchased domain site. But when I am coming here to rais a question I see your problem and I read all the community members' replies. It's really helpful for me and I solve this issue. Now my domain is live on google. Thanks, GoDaddy community.
