How to Remove a Hosted Website From Go Daddy

By Diana Braun

Go Daddy is Web services company that focuses on domain registration, Web hosting and email hosting packages. Users who register a domain with Go Daddy have the option to purchase a hosting plan with the company or choose an outside hosting company to host their website. Nameservers are the servers that are used to host your website. Remove your website from Go Daddy nameservers if you have a new Web hosting company or you simply no longer wish to host your website on Go Daddy.

Step 1

Log in to your Go Daddy Account Manager (see Resources). Enter your user name and password at the top of the page and press "Enter." The Go Daddy Account Manager Console will launch.

Step 2

Click "Domain Manager" under "My Products." All your domains will be listed in the center console.

Step 3

Double-click the hosted domain you wish to remove from Go Daddy. The Domain Details page will launch.

Step 4

Scroll down the page to the "Nameservers" subheading and click the "Set Nameservers" link. The "Set Nameservers" window will launch.

Step 5

Click the "I Have Specific Nameservers for My Domains." Clear the values in the "Nameserver 1," "Nameserver 2," "Nameserver 3" and "Nameserver 4" fields. If you have a new hosting account with a different Web company, enter the new nameserver addresses in the boxes. Otherwise, leave the boxes blank. Your website is now removed from the Go Daddy web servers.
