13 Apr How to Point Domain Name to Another Hosting (NameCheap to GoDaddy / HostPapa)
Worst web host ever. EVER. – I’ve had many problems with this hosting service since I started, and had a 2 year contract. First, their customer service, billing service, and tech support are HORRIBLE. Even if you know what you’re doing. Second, they will suspend your site for using much CPU power at all, despite the fact that other hosts simply have better servers, so this isn’t a problem. You pay for their bad tech. Third, and this is the kicker, they actually REFUNDED my renewal (I felt, stupidly, that it was worth paying a little less, since they offered me a renewal at the same initial offer price) after “not being able” to process it (twice, both times following their directions, with different methods), and then tripled the cost. Turns out they just issued an incorrect renewal, and didn’t want to allow me to renew at that price. No admission that that was the case, that they did anything wrong, etc. By far the WORST service and WORST company I have ever worked with, in any sort of way.
I will use Godaddy & HostPapa as examples. But the process is the same on any other hosting provider.
Please note that we are not transferring the domain, we are just pointing it to the external hosting provider by changing nameservers.
The process for this is a bit backward.
1. We are going to first create a new addon domain in your hostings cPanel, this is actually just a placeholder and it won’t work until you point the nameservers from NameCheap to it.
2. Then, we will check the nameserver name on your hosting
3. and only then we will update nameservers in NameCheap
4. Lastly, I’ll show you how to add a bit of HTML so you can see if your nameservers are correctly configured
