Hello everyone. I have a problem and wondering if anyone can help.  I
have a domain registered with godaddy.  It forwards all the traffic to
my home computer which is hosting the website.  The problem that I am
having is getting google to crawl my site properly.  When I use
websites that mimic google crawlers and enter the domain name from
google, I get error in return.  However, if I try and crawl a url that
points directly to my home bypassing the domain name that forwards the
traffic, then everything works fine.  I called godaddy for help but
they were not helpful.

What am I missing?
