If you have purchased a domain from GoDaddy and web hosting from MilesWeb you can easily point your GoDaddy’s domain to MilesWeb server.

Once you purchase a web hosting plan from MilesWeb you get a welcome email that contains information of the nameservers. You need to update these name servers in your GoDaddy’s account:

Note:

Use only those nameservers that you have received in your welcome email. Because nameservers may differ depending on your hosting plan.

5. Scroll down to the ‘Nameservers‘ section.
