Host a domain from a different GoDaddy account

Hosting domains in one account from a hosting service in another account.My brother and I recently started working on a web project, and we were trying to come up with a good name for it. Unfortunately, the first two names I had thought of were not available as domain names. I told my brother, and he thought of some similar related names, found one that was available as a domain, and purchased the domain immediately. The problem was that he owned the domain name (with his GoDaddy account), but we were going to use my hosting account which is with my GoDaddy account (not his.) My first suggestion was to transfer the domain to my account. My brother wasn’t fond of this idea, but GoDaddy doesn’t allow transfers of domain names for 60 days after they have changed ownership.

Finding out your GoDaddy hosting account IP address.

To find out your GoDaddy hosting account IP address, follow the steps below. I am fairly certain that the IP address you find is constant and will not change unless you change it yourself.

  1. Log into the GoDaddy hosting account that you want to find the IP address of.
  2. Click on the “My Account” link.
  3. Click the “Manage Domains” link.
  4. Click on the domain name you want to have hosted from the different GoDaddy account.
  5. You are now at a “Domain Details” page. There are a lot of links here. In the main box where the most links are, click the link labeled “Total DNS Control and MX Records” (it is under the “Total DNS” subsection.)
  6. On the new page, the “@” entry under the “A (Host)” section contains the IP address of your host. It is shown under the “Points To” column.
