Hello that is not the right part If you have a domain name by godaddy you need to go to there site tools and match it up to your forum.

ACP >> General tab >> Forum >> Forum Address >> Personalized domain name.

Hello if your forum is not going to the address then you have done something wrong or it's not set up right.

For me to help you more i need to know did you buy the domain from us using the ACP or did you go to Godaddy it's self?

If you done it with the ACP tools and you paid for it by us then it can take upto 2 days to work.

If you got the domain naim from Godaddy them self then it looks to me that your address is not set up right there end.

Problem we have is we have NO power over there system and don't give any support with there side of things.
