Domain name with GoDaddy, Hosing with HostPapa

My previous message was premature.

 

I purchased guardednow.ca and guardednow.com from GoDaddy.

I want to host these two domains at HostPapa on my current account as cPanel Addon Domains.

 

What steps d I need to perform to make this work for www, mail and ftp?

 

Thank you in advance.

Hello rtomkins,

   In order to connect your registered domains with GoDaddy to a 3rd party hosting provider you will want to request either of the following from hostpapa:

 

#1. Nameservers to apply to the domains.

or

#2. DNS settings to update your zone files

 

Either one will connect your domains to your hosting with hostpapa. Once you have these settings please use the following guides to help adjust these on your domains.

Many thanks.

My non-understanding was the difference between changing the A record and changing the NS record.

I changed the NS record and then at HostPaPa I used Addon Domains to set things up.

 

All is well and working.

 

Many thanks.
