Hello @BillyJ!


Thank you for posting. I'm sorry you're having trouble. It looks like your domain is pointing to your hosting now. However, it's showing a 503 error message. I'd recommend reaching out to your hosting provider to see if they can help with that error.

I registered the domain with Godaddy and connect to blog then changed my Domain Name Servers in GoDaddy to my hostname servers. Its been  6 days now and my domain is still parked with GoDaddy ( This Web page is parked 


Please help too.  I change my registrar to Google.  But when i go to  it still show parked at godaddy.





Thanks Heather for your advice,

However I kept analysed the situation and discovered that I was not the only one having the same problem in this community. Some other friends like halcel, Mmk2 (his/host is had the same problem. So I concluded that if the problem was comming from the host, it means there is a hosting company breakdown and maybe the problem was global. But it is practically impossible for two to three hosts to have the same problem.

Solution that worked for me: I Change the Nameservers of my domain and still got the parked page. I then decided to change the I.P address of the A(host) record and waited for 48 Hours and Wow my site online now.

I am also having the same issue. Recently bought a domain from godaddy, entered custom hosting namesevers but still it is not pointing towards the hosting. Dont know what is the problem. I tried to change it and still the problem persists.
