It can take time for the process to be completely finished.

Its evident that you've not paired the domain name properly as you've got an error message telling you there is CNAME redirection.

Just a suggestion but have you tried contacting Godaddy and asking them for the exact method of pairing because the above tutorial is very generalized and might not apply to everyone.

Did you check the box for forced redirection in your administration panel?

Hello

If you get this error message, it means your Cname is not well configurated Wink


I advise you to start from the begenning. There are three information to enter
1- Time to live:

Indicate your users will get in cache your pages. Choose a long period of time (around 15 days is enough)

2- Name:
It is the particle is the domain. For example:
name.your_domain.uk


If you want to have your forum on www.your_domain.uk, in that case the name =www
If you want to have your forum on forum.your_domain.uk, in that case the name = forum.... etc


3- Value:
It is the url targetted, the url of your forum

You can watch the following video:



The video is in French but I think it can help Wink
