Godaddy Broke Full Path Domain Forwarding

Did GoDaddy’s recent (June 2018) change to their domain forwarding service break your paths? This happened to a few of our domains as well, and we were PISSED!

Before you transfer your domains to a “better” registrar, or follow their offial (and terrible) response to spend more money and upgrade to their hosting plan, then modify some of the hosting files, and sacrafice a small animal, know that there is a solution that requires almost no work on your part! And you can test it out for FREE!

A very simple domain forwarding service to help get your domains back on their feet after months of downtime.

Its super easy to use, and only costs $9 per domain per month after your 2 week free trial.

Using NavHere.com to Forward your Domain from GoDaddy

We are going to assume you are trying to forward blog.example.com to example.com/blog/.

  1. Go to navhere.com and sign up.
  2. Add the domain you want to forward.
  3. Click the checkbox for “Domain Forwarding”
  4. Set the Forwarding Base Path to “example.com/blog/
  5. Go to your GoDaddy DNS
    1. Create a new CName Record for “random_characters.blog.example.com” (don’t include “.example.com”) and point it to “random_characters.redirect.navhere.com”
    2. Create a new A Record “blog.example.com” (again, don’t include “.example.com” in the textbox) and point it to “104.248.108.148”
  6. Give GoDaddy a few minutes to propagate your DNS changes around.
  7. Go back to your domain in NavHere and click “Verify”
  8. That’s It! You have a free 2 week trial period to test it.
  9. Click the “Renew” button on your domain to add another year of redirections for only $9
