GoDaddy Virtual Dedicated Server Problems - How to point my domain to the new spot

Hello

I have gotten to to something way over my head and that is running my own Virtual Dedicated GoDaddy Linux Server.

Anyway I am stuck with a huge learning curve as I know very little about this.

I have numerous hosting packages and domains with GoDaddy and want them all transferred to my Godaddy VDS. It is not easy. A lot of questions to ask so I will ask 1 at a time and award 500 pts for each.

I have created an account for one domain, uploaded the data, and imported the database. So now how do I get the mydomain.com to point to the new location?

I am completely lost on this.

Thanks

From your godady domain control panel you have to point the name server to your Virtual dedicated server name servers.

Yeah...thanks for the info. I figured it out from info on another forum but once I realized I had to dedicated a domain name to use as my name servers I was off to the races.

Also had to rebuild Apache because GD Library was not installed.

Thanks
