Set custom nameservers for domains registered with GoDaddy

If your domain name is registered with GoDaddy but hosted through another company (or on a server you control), you'll need to change its nameservers. What those are, we don't know! You'll have to talk to your hosting provider or admin to find out what your custom nameservers should be, and then you can easily set them.

  1. Log in to your GoDaddy account.
  2. Next to Domains, click Manage.

How you set your custom nameservers will depend on the view of your account.

After updating your nameservers, allow 4 to 8 hours for other networks to access information for .com and .net domain names, and allow 24 to 48 hours for other networks to access information for all other domain extensions. If you have difficulty, contact our 24/7 technical support team for assistance.
