    So, godaddy is hosting your domain
    Right here you tell godaddy that you want traffic for
    forwarded to a different IP address (
    You need a DNS A record for pointing at If your
    cable internet is DHCP, like most consumer cable internet, you will need
    some provision for updating this A record when your IP number changes.

    I have a similar situation, but I have a registered domain that is
    updated through Their DNS servers point directly to my IP
    address. Maybe godaddy has someway to do this?
