How to set nameservers under GoDaddy account

This how-to explains how to set a domain registered under GoDaddy to use Elite Image’s nameservers. For the purposes of this guide, I will be using the domain “6094mcgirr.com” – wherever you see this domain, you should imply that your own domain should be used.

  1. Log into your GoDaddy account as normal:
    login
  2. Click on the “Manage” button on the “Domains” line:
    manage-domains
  3. Click on the name of the domain which you wish to modify:
    select-domain
  4. Under the “Nameservers” section, select the blue “Manage” link:
    manage-nameservers
  5. Change “Setup Type” from “Standard” to “Custom”:
    custom-nameservers
  6. Once selected, the “Nameservers” section below it should change. Click on the “Enter Custom Nameservers” link:
    enter-custom
  7. In the 2 text boxes, enter the nameservers “elsa.ns.cloudflare.com” and “fred.ns.cloudflare.com” and click on the green “OK” button:
    add-nameservers
  8. When you return to the previous popup, click on the green “Save” button:
    save-nameservers
  9. Upon successful completion, you should see the following box appear in the top-right of your browser window:
    update-successful
  10. You will now need to wait for the changes to propagate through the global nameserver network – this can sometimes take between 24 – 48 hours, so some patience is required.
