How to link Godaddy to Hostgator

Linking up

Web Hosting?

Go to and get a go daddy domain, then in the, godaddy log in page, register and activate your domain name, (beware of the other services they are offering, they are not necessary just yet and you can always go back later if you need them) Go to and get yourself one of their hosting plans, the hatchling plan is fine if its your first time, you can always upgrade later if you need to, then just follow their instructions.

Hostgator will then send you an email with a link to your new Hostgator control panel and password etc, so click on the link, enter your password and your  page should then look like this.

Next scroll down to the domains section and click on Advanced DNS Zone Editor.

Once opened you will find your ip address in the, Zone file records box near the top.

Launch the DNS manager in your godaddy account and copy the ip address under “points to” in the host box.

You should now be able to go back to your Hostgator control panel click on fantastico and then load wordpress!

    There is huge competition out there and it’s important to get started
    on the right foot and hit the ground running, but
    few business owners know how the world of online marketing works.
    It seems online gurus have new and better ways to do video marketing, social media marketing,
    content marketing, SEO, pay per click, and ezine advertising each and every day.
    They can help your website reach its potential, and it will cost only
    a fraction of the money you would spend for professional SEO that may not always deliver as promised.

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s challenging to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and appearance.
    I must say you’ve done a great job with this. Also, the blog loads extremely
    quick for me on Opera. Excellent Blog!
