Subdomain Created in GoDaddy Keeps Re-Routing to Main Domain
« on: February 24, 2016, 04:00:12 pm »
Hello, I have a subdomain linked to my forum. I competed the verification process to link my subdomain from GoDaddy to my forum. When I click any of the links on my forum, the Home Link, Search Link, Calendar, Login or Register link, the links keep re-routing to my main domain instead of staying on my forum site. Because the links keep re-routing, right now I'm unable to login to my forum to make any updates, nor can anyone register.

Help,
R. Freeman

Give it about 24 hours if you just made the dns change

I added the NS1 & NS2 name servers for createaforum to GoDaddy, and set my GoDaddy subdomain to forward to my forum's domain. Is there anything else I need to do?

I woudn't do the nameservers..... Since you are using a subdomain. Nameservers are only for the primary domain.

Your domain was working fine for me with no changes....

If I keep the name servers there, will that effect the time it will take for my forum to work properly?

Each change normally makes it take another 24 hours to 48 hours. Since the ttl records are not set so takes a while for other providers to catch up.

About an hour ago it was working fine. Now it's not working again and keeps re-looping to the main domain. Hopefully it will function properly before this evening.

My subdomain worked last night for close to an hour and I was able to login, and then about 40 - 50 minutes later it started re-routing again to the main domain.
