How to set custom nameservers with GoDaddy
In this tutorial I will take you through how to set custom nameservers with a domain name registered with GoDaddy. There are a number of different reasons why you may wish to do this, including using a third party DNS provider or host.
The first step is to visit Godaddy.com and login to your account. Next, under ‘My Account’ click ‘Launch’ next to domains.
The next step is to find the domain name that you wish to set to use custom nameservers. Click the arrow on the right and from the dropdown select ‘Set Nameservers’.
Select ‘Custom’ and then ‘Enter custom nameservers’.
Enter the desired custom nameservers. If you have more than two nameservers, click ‘Add Nameserver’ to add the desired number.
Once you have entered all your nameservers, click ‘Add’.
Finally click ‘Save’ to apply the changes.
This may take a few minutes to complete and even a few days to fully propagate globally (depending on the DNS TTL values). You can check that you have successfully changed the nameservers by using a free whois service.
