    Hi!
    I started using Godaddy again. I´ve registered some domains and got a hosting plan.
    My Problem -> Now I want to point my domains to the website files I uploaded via my FTP program, so they will show the websites.
    They changed to Cpanel and now I cannot find how to do this! It used to be very simple but now I can´t figure it out.

    Can someone help me please?
    Thanks!

    Just add the nameservers to each domain then add the add on domains in Cpanel.


    There are a few ways to do it but that's all I do. Its really easy. Your nameservers are on the left in Cpanel. You may also need the IP.

    Thanks, but no idea how to do that.
    There used to be an option to select the domain and point it to a folder on the godaddy server

    mydomain.com /folder1
    myotherdomain /otherfolder

    and so on.
    Just like any other webhoster I used.

    Where can I do this now?

    So your domains are not registered on godaddy ? First u need to update their nameservers and A Record. Then in cpanel of ur hosting click on Addon Domains. U will be asked to enter the domain name, user name & password (ftp account for that domain) and the directory to which your domain would point to. And u r done

    No, domains and hosting are both with Godaddy!
    I have 5 domains and I created 5 different folders on public_html via ftp.

    Now my domains each have to point to a different folder so they will show a different website.
    They changed how to do this and I can´t find how to do this now!!
    I´m going crazy!!! :yo:

    You need to setup the cPanel with primary domain first. The one which would work for public_html. Then click on ADDON DOMAINS. Enter other domain name, set username & password (will be treated as ftp logins for the folder associated with that domain) and then select directory. Its pretty easy if you follow the instructions really. No need to change any name servers. Wait for an hour atleast to see if the domains are redirecting to their respective folders. Also u might need to update the 'A record' of the domains to the IP given to you. Check that in DNS Manager

    Have you set the nameservers on your domains yet?
