Note 1

Our SSL certificate is not installed on GoDaddy’s server or the forwarded domain name. So accessing https://YOUR-FORWARDED-DOMAIN-NAME would return an SSL certificate warning or an HTTP error.

Note 2

If [Update my nameservers and DNS settings to support this change] is checked, Forwarded will be displayed in the value field.
