How to Unpark and Activate Domain Names using GoDaddy.com

ERROR: “Domain is no longer parked by GoDaddy” 

I ran in to this issue trying to forward other domains purchased, to one particular URL.

This was due to the previous domain being linked to a website that was deleted through Blogger.com
Once these nameservers were changed, my new link connected within 30 minutes.

A hosting provider will be required in order to unpark and activate domain names. The nameserver will need to be changed in order for this process to work.
  • After logging in to your GoDaddy account, you will need to find “Nameservers”. 
  • This can be obtained by navigating to “Domains” and clicking “Manage”.
  • Under the “Nameservers” menu, “Set Nameservers” must be selected.
  • Find “Setup type” and choose “Custom”.
  • Enter custom nameservers” will allow you to enter the hosting provider that was chosen.
  • Be sure to “Add” and “Save”, otherwise, these steps will need to be repeated.
  • If no changes have occurred, wait a max of 48 hours before contacting GoDaddy for help.
