Most of the time after connecting your domain with your web hosting, when you try to open the website by directly typing the website URL, you get this page of GoDaddy saying, "Your Domain is parked free, courtesy of GoDaddy.com".

And you don't know what to do, but don't worry, this is a common problem and happens all the time. Even it happened with me too for this website, so I decided to write down the solution and share it with you all.

To solve this, you have to sign in to your GoDaddy account and go to "My Domains", now you have to go to the "Manage DNS" settings of your domain.

Once you are on the DNS Management Page of your domain, scroll all the way to the bottom. You will see a section named Forwarding with Domain and SubDomain options.

Click On the "ADD" button for Domain Set Up, then enter your website's URL.

Make sure to check that the "forward to" option is set to HTTPS (If your website doesn't have an SSL certificate, then keep it to HTTP). Set forward type to "Permanent(301)" and settings to "Forward Only".

 However, the solution for Hostinger is a little different.

Once you sign in to your Hostinger H-Panel and visit the DNS Management page for your domain, you won't find any Domain Forwarding Section. 

Hostinger doesn't provide domain forwarding in Domain Management. So, people easily get confused.

So, here's what to do in Hostinger.

In Hostinger you have to delete an A-record from your DNS records and it will be solved.
