Set up Godaddy Domain to work without 'www'

5:53 AM , , 0 Comments

If you have registered a new domain with 'GoDaddy' then you will have to set it up so that you can get your website like this : (no www ) . Usually if you give without www, then it wont go to your web site, instead, it goes to web page showing 'This domain is parked at GoDaddy ( blah blah blah )'.

Here is how to make it go to your web site :
  1. Login into your Godaddy account.
  2. Then go to 'My Account' section ( see left top corner for link )

  3. Now click on '+' to the left of 'Domains' section
  4. Then click on 'Launch' to the right of the domain you want to set up forwarding without www.

  5. Then click on 'Manage' next to 'Forwarding'. A pop up will appear.
  6. In that enter 'http://www.your_domain_name.domain' ( e.g : )

  7. Then click on 'OK' . This may take a max time of upto 2 days to take effect. So be patient and wait. (It took effect for me within 1½ hours )
Stay tuned for more updates.
