I created two subdomains on my primary hosting domain: wwdev and wwtest. I did this using the domain management interface. It created appropriate DNS entries. Both point to the same IP address. I created subfolders for both, /wwdev and /wwtest. Both folders exist and have the exact same files in them.

For some reason, http://wwtest.mydomain.com works as expected, but http://wwdev.mydomain.com returns the pageok message.

If I ping both domains, I get the same result, so this isn't a DNS issue.

Both subdomains show "setup" as the status.

Why does one return pageok?

  • Where does/did the "pageok" message come from?

  • That's the document GoDaddy returns if you point a domain to their host without setting it up in your control panel. Commented May 29, 2018 at 22:44

Not a great solution, but I deleted the broken subdomain via the interface and waited for it to disappear (took about 20 minutes). I then added it again and waited (another 20 or so). After that it worked. No other changes.
