How To Connect Your GoDaddy Domain to an Existing Site—the Easy Way

Step One

  • Go ahead and log into your GoDaddy Account
  • Go into your Domain Manager
  • In the Domain Manager you will see a list of the domains you own (if there is more than one)
  • Next to your new custom domain, you should see a green button that says, "Use My Domain"
  • Click the "Use My Domain" button


Step Two

  • Now that you are on the "Put [your domain] to work" page, Click the green button that says "Connect" under the third option "Connect to an Existing Site"

Step Three

  • After you click "Connect" you'll be taken to the  "Destination" page
  • Here at the Destination page you can choose from one of the popular site services (depending on what site your existing site/profile/blog is hosted at)—OR simply copy and paste your blog/site URL into the "Forward to Any Site" box at the bottom of the page
  • Click "Next

Step Four 

  • Now that you've made it to the Confirmation page, click "Finish" to complete the process.  You will need to allow at least an hour or so, for the process to complete.


  • Before you click "Finish"

    If you would like to forward your domain to your existing site with Masking, click "Advanced Options".  Selecting this option will mask your blog/site URL with your custom GoDaddy domain.
