GoDaddy: How do I change my DNS so you can host my domain?

NOTE: These instructions are for domains registered at

In most hosting cases, you will change your DNS servers to those of World Net, so that we can manage your domain records and host your domain. Assigning DNS to World Net is not an 'ownership' type transfer, but a simple way to let the world know that your records for your domain (where your website is, where your mail is, etc) are housed.

Using World Net for your DNS is *not* required, but is very common for hosting companies. Should you ever discontinue service with us, moving your domain is as simple as going back to your registrar (GoDaddy) and changing the settings to your new host. Assigning DNS makes things significantly easier for us to assist you when you need updates and changes to your service such as mail and web designers.

GoDaddy will automatically update your DNS servers within 15 minutes and the change will be live on the Internet. However, with any major record change or moving of a domain, it can take up to 24 hours for your domain to fully propagate; Which basically means it will take up to that long for all the other DNS servers in the world and their memory cache's to refresh and note that a record change has been made.
