Getting Started

PL281 - many thanks for taking the time to respond. I had no idea that the up assigned to you by go daddy was shared. I probably would have mad some different decisions had I known this. I assumed since they provided one to you associated to your site that it was! Good to know. It makes using externally (non godaddy) managed dns a real pain.

If anyone is wondering, I figured out a handy work around using external page rule with my DNS provider (Cloudflare). I created a cname and page rule to use the awkward URL provided by godaddy. It allowed me to use something a little more friendly for our development team like staging.website.com instead of a long string of random characters in xxxxxxx.myftpupload.com.

Iā€™m sure there is a more elegant way to achieve this in godaddy alone, so if anyone knows please respond.

Thanks again PL281
