Connecting Your Domain to GoDaddy’s Hosting Server

Connecting your domain name to a hosting server allows you to create and publish a website for the public to see. Hosting your website is essential for allowing public access to internet users and to be found on the world wide web. Connecting your domain allows you to keep your domain name subscription with a trusted domain provider while using the hosting services and website tools of another company, like GoDaddy.

1. Sign into your account on our site.


2. Click “Manage Website” for the Domain Name you would like to alter.




3. Click “View Nameservers & Zone” within the DNS & Nameservers Section.


4. Click “Edit My Zone File”



5. Click on the Delete checkbox next to the www A Record set to 199.34.228.59



6. Find your Website’s IP Address. For instructions on how to find your GoDaddy Website IP Address click here.
