    I have a domain which is "connected" to my website/hosting. Both domain and hosting are on GoDaddy. A few minutes ago, I registered another domain and I want it to point to the website. However, I don't know how to do it, so can anyone help me?

    After I do it, I also want my old (the first domain I registered) to redirect to my new domain.

    I think you need to change the nameservers of your new domain to point to your GoDaddy hosting account, and then redirect your old domain to your new domain.

    I hope this helps! :)

    I just want to redirect my new domain to open the website. Then if it works, I'd redirect my old domain to the new one.
