gdmig-mydomainname.com

What is gdmig-mydomainname.com? I have two domains that also have two other domains with "gdmig-" in front of the domain names. A total of four domains when I only ordered two. What is this about?

Thank you for posted the screenshot. What you are showing is a "Hosted DNS" meaning that that domain is on one of your accounts - like a managed wordpress or a server name. You would see this if you were hosting a site for someone and they had the domain registered in their own account / somewhere else.

 

One thought that I have is if GoDaddy is migrating your site / domain for you - perhaps you had the old linux hosting and are getting moved to a cPanel account or something similar.

 

GDMIG - to me suggest GoDaddy Migration and they've add that as a temp domain to assign to a server while things are moved around.

Hi @idontknow ,

 

Welcome to the Community!

GoDaddy does not add anything to the front of a domain, as that would create a new domain. While you haven't mentioned the domain names themselves, please check that they are registered with GoDaddy, then contact GoDaddy customer support to have them reviewed. 

 

If you see them in your domain manager as "hosted DNS", they are only using GoDaddy nameservers and are not actually registered here. Check with the current registrar where you purchased them to see why this prefix may be added.
