GoDaddy Help

Connect my site to a domain registered elsewhere

Connect your site to a domain you already own but that’s located with another provider or is with GoDaddy in a different account.

Other options include:

Note: The cost of hosting your website is separate from the cost of your domain. If you're on a free trial, you'll need to sign up for a paid plan. Compare plans and pricing.

  1. Go to your GoDaddy product page.
  2. Scroll to Website Builder and select Manage next to your website to open your site.
  3. Select Edit Website or Edit Site to open your website builder.
  4. Select Settings.
  5. Next to your domain name, select Manage.
  6. If asked, select I already own a domain.
  7. Select Choose a domain or Change my domain.
  8. Enter your domain and extension without www in front. For example, enter mycoolsite.com not www.mycoolsite.com.
  9. Select Continue.
  10. In a new window, we’ll show you information specifically for your site. Sign in to your DNS provider or your other GoDaddy account and change your DNS records to the new information. Check with your DNS provider if you need help.
  11. After you’ve changed your DNS records, return here and select I’m done, continue setup.
  12. Check the domain name is correct and it's the selected option. Then select Save & Publish or Save. Your changes won't be visible to other people until you publish.

Connecting to your GoDaddy domain usually takes a few minutes but can take up to 72 hours.
