How to fix the “wrong country” problem at GoDaddy

Get stuck in the wrong country? Here’s what to do.

I must have gotten off at the wrong train station.

The other day I was on GoDaddy when I noticed the URL in my address bar changed. It was no longer just GoDaddy.com. Every page was godaddy.com/en-au. I had landed Down Under.

Most frequent GoDaddy users have experienced this at one point. GoDaddy’s systems think you’re in another country and switch to the local site. Many times these are in different languages and currencies, too.

There are two ways to fix this.

One is to clear all of your cookies. That’s a pain because you’ll have to log into every website again.

The other is to change a setting on GoDaddy.com. Whenever you get stuck in the wrong country site, scroll down to the bottom of the page and look for this:

Footer of godaddy.com with a spot to change your country.

Click the country to change locations, or the currency to change currencies.

Welcome home.
