Finding Your IP Address
First, you will want to find your site's IP address. It's located in your Greenhouse Dashboard under Site Settings then Search Engine Settings. It is listed on the right side. Copy this number and save it for the next steps.
Changing Your A Record

Step 2 - Click the green Manage button to the right of Domains
Step 3 - You'll see your domains listed in blue text. Click on the domain you wish to point to your Clover Site
(If you don't see your domain names listed with blue text, you may need to click the 3 lines in the top right corner to complete this step.)

Step 7 - Click Save Changes in the red bar near the top
You're done! Allow GoDaddy’s servers 24 hours to update the new changes, and your site will be live. Go celebrate!
Changing Your Nameservers
If it says "Not Hosted Here" next to "Total DNS", then you'll need to change your Nameservers back to their defaults. However, this will also change all the other settings for your domain, which means that your email (MX records) could go down.
Step 1 - On the domain details page in the lower left, find the box titled Nameservers and click Manage
Step 2 - Choose Standard: GoDaddy, hosting, forwarding, and parked domains. You can then click Save
Step 3 - Your DNS records will show up within 3-4 minutes. After this time, you should refresh the page and you will see your DNS records show up under DNS Zone File. To complete the process of launching your site, continue with the help article on Changing your A record with GoDaddy.
