Mapping Your Online School Website on Learnyst to GoDaddy Domain

Let me show you step by step, how to do Godaddy Domain Mapping. Once you build your e-learning school website, for example, if you have created a school on Learnyst as myschool.learnyst.com, once you are done with building your website you can later redirect the website front page to  to your own domain example mywebsite.com. This is called Mapping your online school websitewebsite.
