WebFaction
Community site: login faq

We have an existing web site kludge (domain = gmss.us) hosted by godaddy. We have built a nice new site on webfaction and want to switch the domain to point to the webfaction site. What are the steps involved to do this ?

if complete domain then point ns server to webfaction simply.

As long as you have the domains added to your WebFaction account and assigned to your website entry in the Control Panel. You would just need to update your dns information with your registrar to either point an A record to your WebFaction server or point to the WebFaction DNS servers.

If you have any troubles, you can open a support ticket for us to look at closer.

To point your domain to WebFaction you can update your nameservers for your domain with Go Daddy.

To Set Nameservers for a Domain Name Registered with Go Daddy

  1. Log in to your Account Manager.
  2. Next to Domains, click Launch.
  3. Select the domain name(s) you want to modify.
    I have specific nameservers for my domains — This option indicates that you are hosting your domain name with another company (enter ns1.webfaction.com, ns2.webfaction.com, ns3.webfaction.com, and ns4.webfaction.com)
  4. Click OK.
