    Godaddy and Brinkster.

    You don't want to forward your domain, you want Brinkster to actually host it. A Masked Forwarded site is just in a frame. So you'll need to change the DNS settings on your domain name. You'll need to know Brinksters nameservers, then you need to change the current nameservers to the new ones using whatever control panel Godaddy provides. Godaddy will still bill you for the domain, but Brinkster will be where the magic happens. :-)

    These two pages look like a good starting point for you. Their respective forums should provide you with any tech support that you require.

    After that, just update any settings in WordPress to show the new URL. Like: Settings > General

    Best of luck.
