Can you post a screenshot of your Control Panel for us to see it. It looks like that your control Panel is different from mine or that new users are not allowed to attach a domain. Post a screenshot so that we can move forward from there.

Here is the screenshot.

i’m trying to update the A record on godaddy to point to the correct ip for the naked domain, but the new GUI doesn’t show it anywhere! i got desperate and used the ip from running the ping command on my server - that wasn’t helpful at all. any suggestions?


#17

New GUI does not have IP address because there is no IP address. Now 000webhost is using load balancers and you need to point CNAME record to your website. You can follow this tutorial to get this started.

thanks, andrius, but i’ve done all that and www.domain-name.com works perfectly. that’s why i specified that i need help with the naked domain, ie http://domain-name.com .

Hi Andrius. I have my domain with namecheap and I followed the steps in your tutorial.
if I type www.pavelralev.com in my browser it takes me to the correct website but the url changes to https://pavelralev.000webhostapp.com/. Is there any way i can prevent that?


#21

make sure your php code does not do that redirect. because i am pretty sura that this redirect is doen by your website itself


#22

Thank you for pointing that out, that was the source of the problem and is now solved by adding define(‘WP_HOME’,‘http://www.pavelralev.com’);
define(‘WP_SITEURL’,‘http://www.pavelralev.com’);

in the index.php file.

Hi everyone, I am in forum about 1 hour and couldnt find a result for simple issue.
Cannot point my address in Godaddy to 000webhost

Lets say my 000webhost address is: myfirstwebsite.000webhostapp.com
My GoDaddy domain: www.myfirstwebsite.com

I have done 2 different things. First I changed cname settings on www and _domainconnect as below

cname www myfirstwebsite.000webhostapp.com
cname _domainconnect myfirstwebsite.000webhostapp.com

that did not work.

Then I tried to change the Name Server settings in Godaddy to
ns01.000webhost.com
ns02.000webhost.com

waited around 1 hour nothing happened.

When I go control panel Set Web Address - I have a Domain - It says "Go to your domain provider & point CNAME record to: myfirstwebsite.000webhostapp.com"
If the CNAME in question the first step I have done, it should be working by now. But it did not.
Please kindly help me.
Thanks

So, can anyone guide my trough step by step instructions, that might help hundreds of people later on.
Thanks

Thanks


#33

Not exactly what I wanted, but I added domain forwarding (permanent redirect) to www.mydomain.com and it’ll have to do.

@admin, please do not delete this question. The one you are pointing is obsolete out of date info.
We need a fresh information about this.

Hi,

I have a domain registered with godaddy and I have also created a CNAME and used domain forwarding.
I am able to see the 000webhost welcome page when I access my domain but still the “000webhost” site gives me the ERROR : Domain asimshaikh.me CNAME must be pointed to asimshaikh.000webhostapp.com

Any help will be much appreciated.
