I need a US/CA resident to help me contact Godaddy so complete my domain forwarding which has refused to work ever since I set it.

I am willing to pay a few $$ for someone to help me

Can you explain what you're trying to achieve? i.e. are you trying to use an affiliate link and then forward your own domain to it?

Are you using the https address for NewAnkaraStyles.com.ng in GoDaddy's settings?

If you're trying to use https:// stylishankara.com, it won't unless it has a SSL certificate.

If SSL Certificate is there then it won't work. Because you need to re-generate the SSL for it but if you just want to move with SSL then it can be done easily with the Domain Forwarding Section.

I think I don't understand your explanation

If I was you, I would use Cloudfare (free) as it's much more reliable than GoDaddy and I believe that it will resolve your issue.

It's more reliable as Cloudfare have datacentres throughout the world (faster 301 redirects) and I believe you can use a free SSL certificate from Cloudfare which will resolve your other issue.

Cloudflare now loads their error 502 page that says Bad gateway.

saying my browser is working, their server(cloudflare at Amsterdam) is working but the domain stylishankara.com is not working

Can you post a screenshot? It's working fine for me and much faster (1.4s vs 7.8s with GoDaddy).

You need to flush your DNS as It's likely still caching.

Code:

I don't know if I'd be asking for too much help.
But how do I flush my DNS?
