How to Change GoDaddy Name Servers

If your domain is hosted with GoDaddy, in order to point the site to the WPX server, you will need to change the Nameservers.

In order to do this you will need to log into your GoDaddy account and go to the Domain manager.

Clicking on the domain will lead you to the Domain Settings menu.

Once you are at the Domain Settings page, scroll down until you see the Manage DNS link.

At the DNS Management page, navigate to the Nameservers section and press the “Change” button.

This will lead you to the DNS Management page where you will need to select the Enter my own nameservers (advanced) option and add the name servers associated with your account.

The Nameservers settings window will then open. Here, select Custom if it’s not already selected;

If there are other Nameservers listed already, remove them and leave only two fields.

In these two fields, fill in the details for Nameserver 1 and Nameserver 2.

The Nameservers can be found in the original Welcome email that you received when the account was activated. They can also be found in your WPX Hosting Dashboard (1) → Service Details (2) at the bottom of the menu, under Server Details:

After you are sure that you have typed in the Nameservers correctly, click OK and then Save. That’s it!

Keep in mind that the technical time for full DNS propagation is 48 hours. In some rare cases, it can take up to 72 hours, that’s just the nature of the way that the Internet was built.
