Domain suddenly showing "Server IP Address Could Not Be Found"

Hey, friends—


Out of nowhere, one of my domains,, has stopped resolving. Chrome returns an error message saying "Server IP address could not be found."

I haven't made any alterations to this domain in at least a year. Any idea what popped up?

Re: Domain suddenly showing "Server IP Address Could Not Be Found"

Hi @quilllouse. Thanks for being part of GoDaddy Community! It looks like the domain is currently forwarding to itself. I know GoDaddy recently updated it's forwarding backend. Perhaps you had it forwarded in the past and just updated the IP the domain was pointing to, without removing the forwarding. When the update went through, it probably reactivated the forwarding. I'd recommend removing forwarding from the domain and updating it's A Record back to the IP of your hosting account
