How do I Set Up A Domain: with GoDaddy?

You’ve purchased “the next big thing” domain at GoDaddy.com! Congrats! Now that you’re ready, there are three things you’ll need to get up and running.

First, you may also need to also purchase hosting if you haven’t already. If that’s the case read my recommended hosts and/or How To Setup Hosting.

1. Once you have purchased a domain go to “My Account” and find the domain you’d like to setup. Click “Launch”

2. Look for this page below. You want to go where it says “Nameservers”, the bottom left. Click “Set Nameservers”

3. Fill in your Nameservers

You want to choose “I have specific nameservers for my domain” and then fill in your nameservers. Usually there will be 2 or 3 nameservers to fill in. These ALWAYS start with the prefix “ns1.”, “ns2.” and so on. You’ll find your specific name servers in the welcome email from your hosting company  (ie. Hostgator, Dreamhost or Bluehost sent you this email when you signed up for hosting. If not? Then contact them and they’ll help you out).
