Step 1 - Find Your Web Host's Name Servers
You can contact your web host provider to find out which name servers need to be used for your hosting services, or refer to the list below (this list was last updated on April 2, 2012):
Log into your GoDaddy Account Manager.
Under My Products, click on Web Hosting.
Click Launch next to the hosting account.
From the Settings menu, select DNS Manager. Your domain name's name servers will be displayed in the NS (Nameserver) section.
From this page, enter your domain name and one of your web host's name servers in the text boxes, and then click on the Look it up button. The dig answer section will show you the IP address you need to enter in your DNS records in Hover.
Record the IP address.
Step 3 - Enter the IP Address in Your DNS Settings at Hover
If you have more then one domain name in your Hover.com account, click on the domain name that you are using with hosting to take you to the Domain Details page.
Under Domain Details, check your nameservers to make sure they are pointed at ns1.hover.com and ns2.hover.com. If you need help changing your nameservers, click here for a tutorial.
Click on the DNS tab.
Under the DNS tab, the @ (blank record for your root domain) and * (wildcard record for www and any undefined subdomains) A records need to be changed to point at the IP address of your web host. To edit an A record, mouseover the record and click on edit DNS.
Enter the IP address of your web host and click Save
Repeat the process to add the record for the * (wildcard) entry.
