Pointing a domain to EasyStore means that you already bought a domain from another domain provider and you want to set it as your store URL in EasyStore.
When you already have a domain at GoDaddy, you can point your domain to EasyStore by pointing the domain DNS Records as below :
A Record to our IP address [ 220.127.116.11 ]
Set up your CNAME record [ yourdomainname.com ] without the www in front
