I've got a shared hosting account on GoDaddy, however my domain name is registered at a seperate company. Assuming I already know how to point my domain name to whatever I want, how do I set up GoDaddy to accept the whatever domain name I want, and how do I find the proper address for my GoDaddy hosting so that I can point my domain name to?
When you sign up for Godaddy shared hosting they usually send you and email afterwards with the server's IP. Once you have the IP address go to the site that is hosting your domain name and change the Host (A)Record within the DNS setting to reflect the new IP address. It will take an hour or an hour and a half based upon what the TTL is set to.
