To connect your GoDaddy domain to your hosting provider, you typically need to update the domain's DNS (Domain Name System) settings. Here's a general step-by-step guide:

  1. Sign in to your GoDaddy account: Go to GoDaddy's website and log in to your account using your credentials.

  2. Access your domain settings: Once logged in, navigate to your account dashboard or domain management section.

  3. Locate the domain you want to connect: Find the domain name you want to connect to your hosting provider from the list of domains in your account.

  4. Access DNS settings: Look for an option related to DNS settings, often labeled as "Manage DNS," "DNS Management," or similar.

  5. Update nameservers: In the DNS settings, you'll see fields for nameservers. You need to replace the default nameservers with the ones provided by your hosting provider. These nameservers will direct traffic to your website hosted with your hosting provider.

  6. Enter the new nameserver information: Enter the nameserver information provided by your hosting provider into the appropriate fields. There are usually two or more nameserver fields to update.

  7. Save changes: After entering the new nameserver information, save your changes. This action may be labeled as "Save," "Update," or similar.

  8. Wait for propagation: It may take some time for the DNS changes to propagate across the internet. This process can take up to 48 hours, although it often happens much faster.

  9. Verify connection: Once propagation is complete, you can verify that your domain is successfully connected to your hosting provider by visiting your website's URL in a web browser.

  10. Test functionality: Test various functionalities of your website to ensure everything is working as expected, such as accessing different pages, submitting forms, and checking for any errors.

By following these steps and updating the DNS settings with the nameservers provided by your hosting provider, you can successfully connect your GoDaddy domain to your hosting account. Keep in mind that the specific steps may vary slightly depending on the hosting provider you're using, but the general process remains similar.
