Unable to forward and mask my domain to my Etsy shop

I followed the step by step guide here - https://www.godaddy.com/help/manually-forwarding-or-masking-your-domain-or-subdomain-422

 

But when I go to my domain heaveninphotos.com i get a broken file icon with a message underneath saying "www.etsy.com refused to connect.". Is there something else I need to do? Or am I missing something?

Masking is an outdated method which can cause problems with modern web standards, some services actively block it's use.  While regular forwarding (without masking) is a redirect which should work for most services.

 

If you add the Domain under the Pattern Dashboard of your Etsy account you can properly associate the domain with your store using a couple DNS records. (note: you'll need to remove the forwarding before editing these records)
