Re: register my domain name to a hosting

@salia 

 

1) I am assuming that you were using the "forwarding" on your domain to link it to blogger

Assuming this is correct the first step is to go to https://dcc.godaddy.com - go to your domain and then the DNS settings and in the bottom right delete the forwarding

 

2) Now that you've done that the next step will vary based on the type of plan you have (Managed WordPress vs cPanel)

 

If you have a managed WordPress plan you can goto https://myh.godaddy.com and select the Managed WordPress site and then the domain options and then add your domain and GoDaddy Scripts will do the rest

 

If you have a cPanel account and it doesn't have the domain already linked with it - from the https://myh.godaddy.com  there will be an option to manage the server and link the domain with it.  This walks you through it - again assuming a cPanel account https://www.godaddy.com/help/add-domainswebsites-to-cpanel-hosting-16150
