When setting custom Nameservers for GoDaddy domains, an IP Address is required for each. In this article, I'll show you how to easily locate that IP Address.

I recently moved my blog to Digital Ocean. My domain is with GoDaddy and when changing the Nameservers over to the three required by Digital Ocean, I was asked for the IP address of each one.

I tried to leave it blank, but the GoDaddy nameserver IP address was a required field.

I wasn't provided with any and couldn't seem to locate any.

If you are in the same boat, just do the following if you are on a Mac or have access to a Linux terminal.

Simply ping the nameserver and it will give you the IP address of it.

ping ns1.digitalocean.com

And there it is:

And do the same for the other two nameservers or whatever nameservers you need to point to.
