    Add an "A" record in DNS for and point it to the Public IP address of the webserver.

    Still nothing on both solutions. It continues to go to my other site when I input the URL

    does your server have a single ip address?  are you using host based virtual hosts or ip based virtual hosts?

    I'm guessing host based virtual hosts, in which case this has nothing to do with dns (because you're getting sent to - which is on that server) and in which case gardavis is 100% correct - you need to set host headers.  not sure the exact terminology on the godaddy pages, but IIS is host headers and apache is ServerAlias.
