Domain transfer questions - Wordpress site that is hosted on HostGator,

Hi guys, I'd be really grateful if somebody could help me out here.

My client has a Wordpress site that is hosted on HostGator, but the domain registrar is GoDaddy. I've built a new site in Webflow and I'm trying to transfer the hosting to webflow and point the domain URL at the new site.

However, on GoDaddy I can't see the DNS because it's nameserver is on HostGator.

I'm not too familiar with this process, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to do this. Should I just cancel the nameserver/hosting on HostGator and then link the GoDaddy to Webflow?

Any help would be appreciated!

What you can do to start is to update the IP in hostgator and that way the new site would be live.

 

Then I would switch the DNS back to GoDaddy and put in all the DNS settings and you should be good to go.

The nameservers determine where the DNS is managed, if you want to manage the DNS with GoDaddy switch back to the default nameservers.
