DNS transfer did not happen when I transfered domain

I recently transfered my domain to go daddy.  The DNS did not seem to change over to a Godaddy DNS server.  What do I need to do to have Godaddy import all my records and have godaddy host my NS

 

TIA

Josh

Changing to the GoDaddy DNS is just a matter of changing from the custom (your current NS) to the default.

 

That said GoDaddy does NOT import your current DNS Zone, you will need to recreate it after you switch to the GoDaddy DNS.

Hi @bramha. This issue and the one you've linked to are different.

 

In this post, the author is asking about why their nameservers did not change. @PL281 advised that you can change to GoDaddy DNS servers but that will not import the zone file from where the domain's DNS is currently hosted. 

 

In the post you linked to, the author wants to make sure that their nameservers DO NOT change, but rather stay the same. In this case the answer @PL281 gave was that nameservers do not change automatically.
