GoDaddy Domain not Forwarding

Hi,

I am trying to forward my domain (savoringsurprises.com) to my Etsy shop (savoringsurprises.etsy.com). Every time that I click on my link, I get this error: 

 

Your Internet access is blocked

Firewall or antivirus software may have blocked the connection.

 

And this is not only for my computer, because I had a company email me saying that my redirect isn't working. I have tried to set up a forwarding to https://www.etsy.com/shop/savoringsurprises, with a permanent redirect and forwarding only, with the update DNS and nameservers box checked. However, after waiting several days, my domain still will not forward.

Re: GoDaddy Domain not Forwarding

You can actually point a domain to an etsy shop without the need for forwarding.

https://help.etsy.com/hc/en-us/articles/360000336367

 

Remove forwarding, delete the A record for host @ and CNAME record for host www.  Then create these records.

 

A-

Host: @

Points to: 130.211.40.170

 

CNAME-

Host: www

Points to: patternbyetsy.com

 

Make sure this is the only A record for host @ and the only CNAME for host www.  Then you'll also need to add the domain to your store in the Pattern Dashboard.

Re: GoDaddy Domain not Forwarding

This is just my Etsy store, and not Pattern. Pattern allows you to have your own website and I do not have that right now. Does this still work?

Re: GoDaddy Domain not Forwarding

I am sorry, I was unaware there's a difference.  I am not duplicating the error as described, though I wonder if you can determine some common denominator between those who are.  You can also post a screenshot of your DNS records to get another set of eyes to help review.
