Obvious question..but do you have an index.htm/html/php in the root www dir ? (Im not a go-daddy user so their dir structure maybe different)

But in saying that, it is seeing the title of your page.........

And looks like youve got a frame directing to - did you put this there ?
Or is your site suppose to open up another page/frame ?

Would be interesting to hear about your Godaddy hosting experience. We use them as a domain registrar but after a bit of testing went elsewhere for web site hosting - we were using their second best hosting hosting plan but found that it was incredibly slow. A little investigation showed there were a couple of thousand (yep, not a typo) other sites on the same box as us including a file serving site. Seemed like incredibly good value but the performance was just too much of an issue. Maybe we were just unlucky.

Best regards,
Aaron Davidson.

We used to host Geekzone images on out of GoDaddy's service - I found out that by using a dedicated IP option you would get a much better performance. Don't know why, but it was just like that.

We since have moved to hosting our images ourselves, seeing the traffic changed to be about 50% New Zealand-based.
