Re: Add Domain - Not already Hosted Elsewhere

If the domain is registered with GoDaddy and you want the DNS to be managed with GoDaddy you would want to be using the Default nameservers.

https://www.godaddy.com/help/change-nameservers-for-my-domains-664

 

If the domain and hosting are in the same account it should automatically update the DNS records.  If not you'll need to edit the A record for host @ manually.

https://www.godaddy.com/help/change-my-ip-address-20134?

 

Type: A record

Host/name: @

Points to/value: [hosting IP address]

 

The IP address is found within your hosting account.  These articles cover the shared hosting accounts available at GoDaddy, let us know if you have something different.

Re: Add Domain - Not already Hosted Elsewhere

An IP address is 4 sets of numbers separated by dots.  Which product are you using to host the website?  The articles above show how to find the IP address for cPanel or Plesk accounts respectively.  If you're not sure what you have check your "My Products" area and let us know what you may have listed under Websites, Web Hosting, or Managed WordPress.

What product is listed under Web Hosting on your "My Products"?

If it says cPanel or Plesk here are the steps to find your IP address.

If you have something different let us know what it says.

The account would need to be Set-up before it's issued an IP address.  It should list the name and type of account next to these buttons.  You can also check the My Hosting dashboard.

https://myh.godaddy.com

 

After the hosting account is Set-up that button would change to Manage.  Clicking Manage would bring up the interface where you can find the IP address.

Re: Add Domain - Not already Hosted Elsewhere

Do you have any other products listed under Websites, Web Hosting, or Managed WordPress, which may be associated with your domain already?  If you do the domain would need to be removed from that product before it can be added to another product.

 

If you do not have access to the account which is using the domain you would need to contact support directly with the user ID and PIN from the account holding the domain.

Re: Add Domain - Not already Hosted Elsewhere

Hey @nasser1. I'm not sure if you got this sorted out already or not, but it sounds like you're not able to set up your hosting with the domain cuppingclinics.com because it's already hosted. In our system, you wouldn't be able to set up the same domain on multiple hosting/site builder plans. It's possible for a domain to be registered in one GoDaddy account and hosted in another. If you do not know how the site is currently hosted and you are the domain registrant, please contact our support team so they can help you get the domain removed from its current hosting.
