Point domain on another registrar to GoDaddy addon domain

Hello all!

I have a customer with Domain using Google.  They want to keep their domain and nameservers with Google since someone else manages their email and domain ownership. I have created an addon domain in my cpanel account on godaddy and built a website for it.  My question is:

What entries should I add/change on the DNS to point to the addon domain within my hosting account?

Thanks!

You should only have to adjust the main @ record - if www is an A record vs a CNAME you will need to adjust that as well.

 

You should look at what else is in the DNS zone to make sure they don't have other things pointed to the @ record that would break when you change it.
