    I have a domain name

    Code:
    http://fullsolutionwebsites.com
    I had an autoblog in the sub directory and I was forwarding the root directory.

    I went to install a blog in the root and get rid onf the index page that made the forward.

    I deleted the old index file, installed a new blog in the root and when I went to check it out, the index is still forwarding. Ok weird.

    Impatient, I wiped out everything. Removed the domain name from my hosting and parked it at godaddy.

    Now it gets strange. The root is still forwarding, and where my blog was;

    Code:
    http://fullsolutionwebsites.com/blog1/
    There is some weird script that definitely is not mine and not godaddys.

    What is it? and what do I do?

    I'm getting the godaddy page. You're probably getting cached DNS.

    Back up and completely wipe out the domain folder on your host.

    Press Ctrl+F5 on that page. Its just ur browsers cache, nothing else...
    And just to be sure, recheck your nameservers.

    The redirect is gone but the script is there. Is that Godaddys script then? Didn't they use to use the screens that had "godaddy" plastered all over it?

    First thing I would do is move away form godaddy. You will be better off down the road if you try to build better sites. Their support has no clue on opening ports for API intergration. Plus when you try to run different scrips they block different actions.

    Move to companies like hotdime bluehost or a ton more.

    Better yet set up a reseller account for yourself and you can set up all the different sites you want.

    I just have a few domains on godaddy, I have been migrating to namecheap. I host with hostgator. I tried godaddy hosting at my very beginning and when I tried Hostgator I instantly canceled godaddy because I realized how terrible it actually was.

    Anyhow, the domain is fine now. The godaddy parking page has shown up. I don't know what the hell it was. If I ever see it again I will fire up camtasia and record it so people will know what the hell I was talking about.

    Sounds like a DNS propagation issue.
