In this article, I will tell you How to Point GoDaddy Domain to Hostinger.
If you have the same question then you will get the right answer in this article.
Why do you need to change NS(Name Servers)?
You need to change only and only when domain and hosting servers are from different companies otherwise your domain is already pointed to hosting from you buy both domain and hosting company.
We can do it by using Two methods such as:-
- Using DNS Setting
- Using A Record
Here am going to share steps follow them as described below:-
#Method 1 – Using DNS Setting
Step 1 – Login to Hostinger Cpanel
Go to your favorite browser and type https://www.hostinger.com/cpanel-login
You can log in using your social media profile such as Facebook, Google, and Github or by using email and password. It’s up to you which option you choose.
Step 2 – Choose Hosting Option
So now you are on the dashboard where products will be shown that are purchased by you. It could be
- SSL Certificate
After login you have to Choose Hosting option from the menu or dashboard as per mentioned in below screenshot :
Step 3 – Go to DNS Zone Editor
Select the domain that you want to point and go to the “DNS Zone Editor” Option by scrolling down. Refer screenshot for more clarification
It’s showing your domain status, now go to DNS Zone Editor
Step 4 – Copy NS ( Nameservers )
Scroll down and go to Nameserver tab as described in the screenshot and copy all the domain name servers showing in this tab
Step 5 – Login to Godaddy Account and Choose DNS
Visi GoDaddy Official Site: https://godaddy.com
After login you will be redirected to your dashboard, Godaddy Dashboard shows the list of All Products and Services which you purchased.
Select Domain and Click on DNS Button as highlighted in the screenshot
Step 6 – Add DNS Server(s)
Do you remember, We copied Hostinger NS in Step 4?
If not forgot then got to step 4 and copy and paste Name server one by in Godaddy Nameserver(s) box as described in the below image
On this page make sure you have chooses “I’ll use my own nameservers” radio button without this you can’t be able to update Nameservers.
By Default Godaddy Shows 2 input box if you have more than 2 Name Servers then add new input box by clicking on the “Add Nameserver” button
After All Done, Now click on “Save” Button
#Method 2 – Using ‘A’ Record
Follow the Step from 1 to 3 of Method 1
Step – 1 Copy IP Address
Type in the search box @ and copy the IP Address as highlighted in the screenshot:-
For example, our IP is 192.168.10.23 (Don’t copy and paste this IP It’s dummy not real)
Step 2 – Login to Godaddy Account and Choose DNS
Click on edit pencil for Record Type ‘A’ and Paste the copied IP Address in the Value text box.
Congratulations !! You have completed the process.
Now, wait for some time to propagate nameserver because it can take up to 24 hours to fully propagate worldwide.
By finishing this tutorial, we have learned the two ways to point a GoDaddy domain name to Hostinger. the primary is by changing the name servers, and therefore the second is by changing your registrar’s A Record.
I recommend the first method because it automatically sets your domain with Hostinger IP Address so you don’t have to go to another hassle if it changes one day.
So what do you think? Which method will you choose? Let me know in the comments below!
