Domain Pointing
I transferred a subdomain from GoDaddy and once that was done i added the sub domain so that it has it's own folder in my public html folder and the subdomain is pointed there. But, when i type in the web address it still points to GoDaddy. How can i fix this?

Hello Rharrison,

Thanks for the question! The domain transfer does not change the name servers for your website. You will need to change your name servers so that the domain is using our servers. When you make the change you will a short delay called DNS propagation- usually less than 24 hours.

I hope this helps to solve your problem. Let us know if you require any further assistance.
