How to Find a GoDaddy Nameserver IP Address For Any Host

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.

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

ping ns1.digitalocean.com
