Forwarding error

Hi. I am trying to use forwarding with masking to redirect bbturning.com to http://bb-turning.simplesite.com.

 

An error that says "length overflow error" keeps coming up. I have used masked forwarding before on a previous website with no problems. HAs anyone any idea why this is happening and how to fix it please.

 

Regards

Re: Forwarding error

I seen that one but it was a different problem. Apparently if your description is too long you get the same error. I was on to godaddy for an hour until they figured it out. I was 6 characters over the limit.
