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.

Note: GoDaddy periodically updates the user interface so it may look slightly different.

The first step is to visit Godaddy.com and login to your account. Next, under ‘My Account’ click ‘Launch’ next to domains.
