    Websites - How do I host one?

    I have already purchased my domain from GoDaddy. 

     

    I have a friend with web servers already online who will host and manage my page at no cost.  How do I go about instructing Godaddy to point my domain to my friends web servers?

     

    Thanks for any information in advance!

    Ask your friend for his hosting server's Nameservers.  They typically look something like:

     

    NS1.FRIENDSSERVER.COM

    NS2.FRIENDSSERVER.COM

     

    You then login to your GoDaddy Account > Manage Domains > Click on Your Domain Name

     

    There you will see Nameservers.  The default GoDaddy DNS are currently in place which will look similar to:

     

    NS22.DOMAINCONTROL.COM
    NS23.DOMAINCONTROL.COM

     

    Change the GoDaddy defaults to what your friend provides.  Once you do that your domain name will beging to pull your new page over the next 24-48 hours -- sometimes sooner, sometimes longer.

     

    HTH! 😉
