Godaddy URL for my website

Is there a godaddy URL to access to my hosted webpage?

Something like ww.goddady.com/mygodaddyaccount

 

Because right now, I have my domain name that point to my web hosting public directory. 

I want to point my domain name to a Wix site but I still need to be able to point to my PHP stuff.

 

Example:

Before:

www.mydomaine.com  point to my godaddy web storage

www.mydomaine.com/share.php  point to share.php on my godaddy web storage

 

What I want to do:

www.mydomaine.com point to my Wix webpage

www.mydomaine.com/share/share.php point to share.php on my godaddy web storage

or www.godaddy.com/mygoddaddyaccount/share/share.php

 

Thanks for help!

@pboulay I would make a subdomain, like dev.yourdomain.com and point it to your GD account. That way you can access your site hosted on GD and access your wix site via www.yourdomain.com

And once you finish with your code and you're ready to go live with your new site, you just change your DNS to point it to GD hosted site.

 

Hope it helps!

Make sens!

 

I tried to make a subdomain but I need to tell the address of forwarding. Where I can find the address of my site hosted by GD?

 

I can change the DNS for www.mydomain.com and it will have no impact of my share.mydomain.com?

@pboulay that's the point.

Let's say www points to your live site. And share point to your staging site.

Once share.yourdomain.com is finished, you can replace the DNS records for www so it points to the new site. From then on, when you visit www.yourdomain.com you will access the site you have been working on share.yourdomain.com.

Re: Godaddy URL for my website

 @jpablo  I got the point but what is the URL of my staging site on GoDaddy?

 

Because I need to provide a http address to the forwarding behaviour.

@pboulay you don't need a URL, you need to add a subdomain in your cpanel account, and point it's DNS to your server's IP.

Re: Godaddy URL for my website

I understand now, its throught the cpanel. There is 2 different ways to add sub domain.

 

Thanks a lot for your help!
