@davisdre317 Thanks for the how-to, I suspect your solution may end up being our problem - as in we'll have to purchase. However, what if the domain change has to do with an upgrade from wordpress platform no longer being supported, to godaddy? In this case does a new domain need to be purchased? Can't we just "rename" it? THANK YOU!
Were you using a domain name over at the other party? To pull up an address on the web and show the content you wish it to show you do need to own the domain name. You can use any domain name you wish in the hosting plan itself but you will only see the website content you are wanting it to show when it's assigned to the domain you wish to use.
