I have an established website with the domain name hosted at GoDaddy, which I want to keep at GoDaddy.
The website content is hosted somewhere else.

How do I point the GoDaddy domain name to my InMotion server, and change the primary domain to this new GoDaddy domain, then proceed with the cPanel restore?
