This Domain is Already Assigned to an Account When I Add to Hosting in Godaddy

Two days ago I purchased a new domain name from Godaddy in the same account where I have hosting too. It is very simple to add the domain name to hosting if both features are in the same account. However, I faced a strange issue when I tried to add this new domain name to my web host account. I could not add the name and got an error message this domain is already assigned to an account. For me, it is a brand new name. So I contacted Godaddy technical support.

Technical support team informed me, this domain name already connected to a hosting account in their network. Since it is not my hosting account, someone else added it to his hosting.

I requested the Godaddy team about it. They removed the address from the previously hosted account and informed me to wait 24 hours to add it to my hosting.

I added the domain name to my web host account yesterday. Now it works perfectly.

Now I feel I have purchased an expired domain name which was using Godaddy hosting service. His domain name expired, but the hosting is still active.

I have been using Godaddy services for more than five years. I still remember the days I struggled to add a custom domain for my blogger blog.

I also faced issues with redirecting non-www version of the domain name to www version.

If I type the non-www version of URL to view a blog page, it redirects to the home page.

I too had the same problem. When I called Godaddy, they said wait for few hours and they will resolve the issue. Thanks to the support, now the problem is resolved.
