  • Resolved PMConcepts


    I will be short and sweet. I have set up hosting on I have a Domain . We have also set up a subdomain so that we can edit our website online.
    ISSUE: is right now used for our blog, and will eventually be converted to be used for our website.

    Problem: If we type in it redirects us to the blog thus, not allowing us to edit anything.

    Not sure what the issue is. I have no problem dissaccociating from the, but this is definitely a pain in my backside.

    any help and directions would be perfect as I am a beginner to moderate with networking lingo.

  • That is because DNS of your domain name that you bought is still pointing at

    how do I change that? godaddy customer support wasn’t helpful with anything related to Is it something I can edit in or godaddy’s domain settings…

    is there also a way to keep linked to blog, and have used for our website, for now?

    No there is no way for you to use same domain pointing two servers it can only point to one you can buy another domain name for your Go Daddy host account.

    From what Godaddy is telling me, using the is using a different domain, because of the “dev.”

    But the primary domain name is still pointing to so I just do not how is it possible to have subdomain name.

    I suspect the issue is 301 redirects. Probably in the past has had a 301 redirect to

    These are permanent redirects and cached at all sorts of points between you and the server. Including your own browser. Make sure you clear your browser cache, if you have any company proxies make sure they clear too. If all that fails, you will just have to wait it out. Or google for more ideas 🙂

    I see 2 different websites, and ping confirms that DNS is set up to point dev to a different IP.

    We figured it out. Had a lot to do with the DNS and such. Not sure how to explain it, but a good friend helped us through it using your advice, and it works perfectly now. Thanks a lot for the advice and help!
