How to Point Domain Name to Another Hosting (NameCheap to GoDaddy / HostPapa)

I’ll show you how to change a domain name server in Namecheap to point your domain to another hosting provider. Go to Namecheap 👉

I will use Godaddy & HostPapa as examples. But the process is the same on any other hosting provider.

Please note that we are not transferring the domain, we are just pointing it to the external hosting provider by changing nameservers.

The process for this is a bit backward.
1. We are going to first create a new addon domain in your hostings cPanel, this is actually just a placeholder and it won’t work until you point the nameservers from NameCheap to it.

2. Then, we will check the nameserver name on your hosting

3. and only then we will update nameservers in NameCheap

4. Lastly, I’ll show you how to add a bit of HTML so you can see if your nameservers are correctly configured
