    I have unlimited domains, email etc. with Fatcow but have a few domains registered with GoDaddy and one with CrazyDomains. I would like to set these domains up with my current hosting plan with Fatcow.

    I emailed GoDaddy and Fatcow support. They said changed DNS Settings and Nameservers so I did but I still can't figure it out.

    Can anyone give me some advice on this in layman terms? Really struggling with it.

    Thanks

    in your godaddy control panel under the domain you want to update there should be a link to change nameservers or update DNS. they mean the same thing. you then need to update those to the nameservers that your hosting company gave you. in your hosting panel at fat cow you will also need to set up a addon domain with the new domain that you are trying to add. it can take up to 48 hours to update DNS settings.

    You need to go the where you registered the domains and set the DNS to your where you are hosting the domains now. So in Godaddy for example you would need to change the Nameservers (DNS) to whatever it is at Fatcow. The Fatcow DNS should be in your welcome email I would imagine or on their website. Once that is done you would go to your Fatcow Cpanel and choose "add-on domians" and add your new ones. Your new ones might work within a few minutes but can take maybe 24 hours for the DNS information to have propogated throughout the internet.

    Forgot to mention that I was able to change DNS settings but my new domain was pointing to the domain currently registered with Fatcow. I thought it was a problem with IP address as I've been confused about that from the start. But Fatcow just emailed me and explained I have the new domain pointing to the website files of my primary domain.

    Should be able to figure it out now but I really appreciate the advice. Been trying to figure this out for days.

    Thanks for the advice. I didn't explain my problem very well as I've been working on this for days and haven't had much sleep. But please read the message above this one for a better explanation
