I registered a domain from godaddy, but found the hosting to be a bit expensive, shopped around and found that I would like to host with Ipage. So signed up for a hosting plan, and then I thought I could just transfer the domain. Apparently I have to wait for the domain to be 60 days old?? So what should I do, I need this done withing 2 weeks for my final project for college. Should I get a refund from Ipage and have to host with godaddy?
It’s not a problem. You don’t have to transfer your domain name at all, if you don’t want to.
In order to use your iPage hosting while your domain is still at Godaddy (without transferring your domain at least until it’s 60 days old) all you have to do is to point your domain name to your web hosting. You can do this in just a few minutes and it is usually set up and ready within 24 hours (usually a lot less). All you need to do is log in to your Godaddy domain control panel and enter the iPage name servers
If you’ve already added that website (domain name) to your iPage control panel, and uploaded the files to your hosting account, the website will be live in a couple of minutes or hours.
