I'm using GoDaddy for my domains and NearlyFreeSpeech for my hosting. I want to keep using GoDaddy for my DNS needs as it comes free with the domains.
In GoDaddy, I added a CNAME record for www.mydomain.com to point to mydomain.nfshost.com. So far so good. I also set mydomain.com (no www) to forward to www.mydomain.com (still in GoDaddy).
My question is: is the A name record relevant or can I just delete it?
The reason I'm asking this is because I used to use the no-www domain for my websites, but I've decided to switch recently (I've seen the light). However, when my site shows up in Google's search results, it still says http://mydomain.com and it can't find the server.
I'm guessing this is Google's fault and that maybe this will get resolved once Google's bots refresh their index because manually typing http://mydomain.com correctly redirects to www.mydomain.com.
