Domains purchased through Godaddy are fully supported on InMotion Hosting servers. To get a Godaddy domain working on your InMotion Hosting server, the nameservers will need to be updated to point the domain to our DNS server, and the domain must be added to your cPanel, if it is not your primary domain. This can be done in Godaddy's Account Manager. Below are the steps for setting up a domain purchased at Godaddy to point to our nameservers.

Changing the nameservers at GoDaddy

  1. Log in to your Account Manager.
  2. change-nameservers-godaddy-1Click "My Account" button on the top left to access the account page.
  3. change-nameservers-godaddy-2 Click "Launch" next to the Domains on the Products tab.
  4. change-nameservers-godaddy-3 Select the check box next to the domain name to modify.
  5. change-nameservers-godaddy-4 On the Nameservers icon drop menu, Select "Set Nameservers".
  6. Click the "Custom" option, you will see the current nameservers.

    change-nameservers-godaddy-6 Change the Nameserver 1 and Nameserver 2 to the following nameservers.

    NS.INMOTIONHOSTING.COM
    NS2.INMOTIONHOSTING.COM

    Click OK.

    change-nameservers-godaddy-7 Your changes have been submitted pop up will display. Click OK.

    Congratulations, the nameservers were updated successfully. The Nameserver change should take effect within 24 hours.

Someone should go to GoDaddy, the interface has been changed and it is rather confusing to use your instructions. It will be impossible foe a newbie.

My nameserver changes onGoDaddy shared none of these screens, I only hope it worked! Any way to verify through you guys that things are up and running okay?

Hello Defensible Video Solutions!

Sorry that there was discrepancy in the screens that you're seeing for the DNS changes. They most likely need to update the screenshots (provided we have a GoDaddy account somewhere). Yes, we do have a tool that you can use to view your DNS called the Visual DNS Routing tool. Just review the page's instructions, add your domain and you'll see if the name server changes have applied yet. When I reviewed it, they had not yet changed. Remember that DNS changes may take up to 24 hours.

Once the name server changes have applied, you will see that the name servers listed in the diagram of the tool will point to ns.inmotionhosting.com and ns2.inmotionhosting.com.

I hope that helps to provide you a good solution! Please let us know if you need any further assistance.

Regards,
Arnel C.
