Connecting cPanel secondary domains to transferred in domains

Hi all. 

I have recently transferred in some domains from other hosts to bring all my hosting and registrations into one place (well, Xilo are being very obstructive to transferring out, but the others have come across already).

I have set up Deluxe cPanel hosting, and created folders for each of these domain names. I have set up add on domains to link to these transferred in domains.

If I enter in the address bar myparentwebsite/myaddondomain with a simple index.html it reads fine, but if i type I still get the following:

The webpage at myaddondomain might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address.


The domain manager for my transferred in name still says DNS ONLY off site, but its nameservers are set to and

Is there anything else I need to do to bridge the gap between them, or will it propagate and resolve itself over the coming days?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Connecting cPanel secondary domains to transferred in domains

Hi @LittleSheHairdr. Thanks for being part of GoDaddy Community! This seems like an issue with the DNS settings of the domain. Once you transfer in a domain that was already hosted with us, your DNS settings should automatically switch from "DNS Only" to "Active". If that doesn't happen, you'll want to have your account reviewed by our Customer Care team.
