Connect an external domain to my Website Builder version 6 or 7 site
This article is specifically for redirecting a domain registered with another provider to your GoDaddy Website Builder version 6 or version 7 site.
- Open the website of the provider where your domain name is registered.
- Follow the provider’s instructions to where you can update your DNS (domain name system) records.
- Use the following values to update the A record's @ value and TTL, and the CNAME's www value and TTL:
- Type: A @ value: 188.8.131.52 TTL: 3600 (1 hour)
- Type: CNAME www value: (Your domain name here without www in front. For example: mycoolsite.com) TTL: 3600 (1 hour)
After you’ve made changes to your DNS, be patient. It can take anywhere from a few minutes to 72 hours for the changes to go through and your domain to start working.
- All Website Builder version 6 sites and some version 7 sites have been upgraded to Website Builder. See our help articles if you have any questions.
