    I’m not sure I understand what you would like to do. Are you saying that you want to –

    2. transfer your domain name registration and your site to GoDaddy, and no longer host your site at

    If you intend doing number #1, take a look at this support document about updating your name servers. You’ll need to register your domain name with GoDaddy, and then update your name servers on so that visitors to will continue to arrive at

    On the other hand, if you want to move your site across to GoDaddy’s servers, along with your domain name registration (so that your site will no longer be hosted on, I recommend that you head over to the support forum and request help from the great community there.

    This forum is for sites that are hosted on, not self-hosted sites. Here is some information about the differences between the two: and

    Hi again

    It looks like your domain is registered with GoDaddy, and that your name servers are configured for It also looks like your domain is locked for some reason. I’ve tagged this thread for the Happiness Engineer team to take a look and see if they can work out what the reason is.

    One possible reason is that your domain name registration lapsed on 17 December (if I understand your point correctly). In that case, this may be helpful: Domain Expiration

    Regarding your last statement, you wouldn’t be able to redirect your domain to GoDaddy.


    Hi there,

    I checked your account and has not been connected to your account since November of 2013. Like @pauljacobson mentioned, the domain is registered with Go Daddy, and you will most likely need to touch base with them to get the domain back up and running.

    Please let me know if you have any questions or what Go Daddy says when you reach out to them.




    No sir, mapped my domain in since from 2012 to december 2017. But from 2013 i renew my site through my adword earning. Due to payment issue in india i’m not able to renew my domain this year. But i contacted to renew my site by my adwords earning, email from no possibility. This time i’m cornered so moved to godaddy for my transfer of domain alone. Unfortunately unaware of hosting at wordpress not redirected


    I see. I would recommend touching base with Go Daddy to see what issue may be with your domain. We now have no control over the domain. Let me know what they say.




    Godaddy ask me for hosting IP address inorder to point my domain.

    I read some articles does not have static ip.

    Finally search and work around solution is that simply domain name doesn’t point to my blog

    I need to upgrade my hosting at eventhough have domain at another registrar.

    My final question is can i able to purchase the hosting alone at for the amount of previously provided $13 instead $96.


    Hi there.

    The best way to map a domain to a blog is to set your domain’s name servers to the following values:




    However, if your registrar requires that you create A records, please note that our IPs change over time. Because of this, your domain might stop working at some point in the future. If that happens, please get in touch with us to find out the most current IPs and then update your A records, accordingly.

    If you still want to map your domain using A records, please be sure to create two records using these IP addresses:




    Thank you sir. Now my domain is UP.
