  • Trouble Blog & Forum Store Subdomains

    I've got a godaddy website setup seperately from my 3dcart store. On this Godaddy Website I have 2 subdomains, one which is setup for my 3dcart store Forum & the other for my 3dcart store Blog.

    They are currently hosted & setup at the following addresses.

    Forum: http://forum.refrigeratorfilter.com
    Blog: http://blog.refrigeratorfilter.com

    I would like you to create the same set of subdomains for my waterfiltersfast.com domain. i.e.

    Forum: http://forum.waterfiltersfast.com
    Blog: http://blog.waterfiltersfast.com

    I have tried everything I can think of, been on the phone with GoDaddy & Submitting Tickets with 3dcart support, has anyone had an experience with subdomain forwarding from 3dcart to Godaddy.com? I'm totally confused and the IP forwarding that 3dcart has attempted isn't working. Any DNS Guru's advice would be welcomed!!

    Looks like they setup a CNAME record where as blog.waterfiltersfast.com and blog.refrigeratorfilters.com . At least that's what Klothnet says.

      GoDaddy DNS Solved

      Looks like you have to stick with TLD's and pay the additional $2 per month for a dedicated IP address when using GoDaddy to host your blogs & forums. That was my final solution that worked. I'm sure someone with better DNS skills could have figured out a workaround, but not I.

      In the end it was a GoDaddy issue & the support from 3dcart was fantastic.

        how did you point the subdomain to the blog? Mine doesn't seem to want to go and I can't figure out why.

        Did you hard link the subdomain or did you point it to the blog.asp file?

          Also realize that after you configure the DNS changes it can take 24-48 hours for it to take effect.

                  Be aware that GoDaddy basically takes little responsibility for anything you host with them beyond domain names and associated services.

                  That has been my experience anyway.

                  I had a forum hosted on GD (simple machines on MySQL) for over a year. GD was supposed to be backing the DB up every day. I had every security option available to ensure no spammers got into my forum and I approved every member. I had no new members for a week and one of my members emailed saying the forum was down last Fall. Low and behold my forum got hosed with no idea why. I contacted GD and they said (after 48 hours) that they restored the backup but that was where their responsibility ended. They had no ability to tell me what happened or any ability to fix anything. The backup was also hosed. So a forum with ten thousand posts and 2500 members got hosed because they don't have the technical know how to fix issues that arise or even perform DB backups correctly.
