    Error pointing external domain to godaddy

    I'm trying to point m 1and1.co.uk domain name to my godaddy wordpress website. I've followed all the "help" but I'm getting:

    The webpage at http://www.[website].com/ might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address.
    ERR_NAME_RESOLUTION_FAILED

     

    I provided the Ns servers as requested (ns39.domaincontrol.com and ns40.domaincontrol.com) and waited for a few days to check it wasn't still propagating. I've checked the temporary domain and the site is fine, so something is wrong with pointing?

    @sheri2017 When did you update the nameservers? Did you add the domain name to your hosting account at Godaddy?

    The problem has been resolved. godaddy support has to create the domain on their side too, even if the domain isn't with them. Then you can select this spoof domain as the main domain for your website.
