can't connect godaddy domain to a godaddy site

I have a hosted Linux site at Godaddy.

I didn't had a domain name to connect to it at the time so it got a default one.

I finished building the site an I transferred a domain I had to Godaddy and tried to connect the two

but all I get is a coming soon massage (http://www.droidmonkey.com/) it has been almost a week since.

what can I do?

(I relay don't want to call support because I hate talking over the phone.)

It looks like in cPanel you need to add this as an add-on domain and make sure the home directory is public_html

 

Please note this is assuming the server still has the temp name.

The new domain is recognized as Primary Domain.

In the dashboard it also recognize as the domain, yet nothing has change.

Can you share the IP address of your server as well as perhaps a screen capture of the file manager (specifically looking at the public_html directory - Please feel free to send this over direct message if you prefer.

 

Right now your domain is configured to point to 23.229.183.166

Thank you for sending the photos of your file manager - the issue is that your "website" you currently have is in a subfolder within public_html

 

Since this is the primary domain on the server it expect the files to be in the public_html folder

 

If you move them from your test folder (you can move the current html & css in the public_html to a new folder) into the root of public_html you will be good to go
