My sites are unavailable after domain forwarding

Hi everyone! After forwarding my domains sunwindcurrent.com and yoursmartmoneyonline.com my sites do not load. Please explain why this occurred and how long it will be gone? Who can give me advice and a sensible explanation? When I load sites I see the following:
"This website is temporarily unavailable, please try again later." Thank you!

Hi,
What hosting service are you using?
This could have something to do with your DNS settings or you might have forwarded to the wrong address.
Regards

Hi Troy,
Thank you for attention,
GoDaddy is the hosting service. You see, before forwarding the sites were uploaded very well with no problems. Having been forwarded this problem occures. Today is the two days they are unexisting. I have no idea what was happened.
Best regards

I am not sure why you are fowarding but if you do want to forward try forwarding your sites but don't use the www. instead forward to http://

If youre using GoDaddy for both your domain name registration and hosting then there should be no need for domain forwarding as it should already be setup to point to your GoDaddy host account.

Then you need to setup your FTP connection in XSP and create your website. Then publish your site and it should appear. If you are having problems with it check with GoDaddy support to see what they suggest.

Jason, I thought the same thing but was a bit puzzled by what he was asking.
Sometimes it is hard to diagnose what's wrong without sitting in front of their computer.
AHHHHHHH...LOL

These sites are created 4 months ago and they loaded well without forwarding. Sometime ago I heard it is better if domains are forwarded. I also did so. After it they are not uploaded until now.
Regards to all!

Has been forwarded. Should I write like this ftp.yoursmartmoneyonline.com. or this ftp.www.yoursmartmoneyonline.com ? But, in any case it is not uploaded. I tried both.

I think you are getting a little confused here...
The only reason you really forward a domain is so people land on a different site.
I think you are talking about redirects?
Here is a post about how to do that.

Is that right?

What exactly did you do when you "forwarded" your domains?
