GoDaddy Tech Support and Customer Service

Even though a call to tech support should take 5 minutes of wait time i chose email with a 5 hour wait time.

My Question: 

Over the weekend I removed my subdomain and created a new one for forwarding so would forward to
If i ping it resolves to however if I try to browse the site in the webbrowser I receive Bad Request (Invalid Hostname). I am not sure if the DNS still needs time to propagate through your servers or, I have an incorrect setting

Dear Aaron Fischer,
Thank you for contacting Online Support. Changes to the settings of a domain take up to 48 hours to become effective because of the number of networks involved, and because these networks are controlled by several different agencies. This delay applies to all domains with any Registrar, not just Go Daddy. Please allow for this delay when planning web sites or configuring a domain to work with your services.
If, after 48 hours has passed, you still receive the same issue please contact us so that we can further investigate. I apologize for any inconvenience.


This is my blog the most outward facing site I have, its partially(Perma links are dead for all intents and purposes) down for any one that uses the old link so I am a little nervous about down time.  Would it have been to much for the tech to look at my settings and reassure me its just a mater of time for the DNS to resolve properly?
