How to host your GoDaddy.COM domain on Hostgator 2016

AWFUL – I just can’t believe how awful and challenging this company is to deal with. Please please don’t use them. Steve Soderquist, Mississippi, foundationsbooks.net

How to add your awesome website domain name purchased from GoDaddy onto HostGator hosting

Start your website with the following steps:

1. Get your first year domain name (www.(yourawesomewebsite).com and privacy registration at 1&1.com for $0.99 when you use this link (normally around $10.00):

1and1 Coupon

2. Get up to 60% off your order at Hostgator for web hosting (I recommend the ‘Baby Plan’ to get you started because you will find that more domains are a good thing) when you use this link:

    I did this, but it says this domain is no longer parked with Godaddy! It happens when I click on the admin link of quick install

    Hi Bobby, my name is Mike.

    Every time I changed my nameservers to the custom setting and enter my hostgator nameservers, the change only lasts for a few days before it reverts back to godaddy's nameservers on its own or by somebody working for godaddy.

    It's as if somebody knows my login information, logs into my account and manually changes the nameservers back to godaddy's.

    I've contacted godaddy about this but the guy sounded like it was his first day on the job because he didn't really have an answer for me.

    Have you had this problem? If so, how did you fix it?

    Thanks for the tutorial. I have a question: when I transfer my domain, will my website appear the same or will I lose all the content/images and have to start over? Thanks.

    do you need to change the Server IP from HostGator and change the one under GO Daddy ?

    Thanks you for the video. But next time please don't put video of your self in shared screen, so that entire screen can be used for presentation, or just put video of yourself in top right corner as a small screen or so. thanks

    Awesome explanation! Most youtube videos merely show you how to change the nameservers only. You took the time to thoroughly explain it. Great job – bravo!

    When I try transfer my domain I created today at Godaddy over to Hostgator I get this message,

    "In order for a domain be be transferred, ICANN regulations stipulate that the newly-registered domain must be at least 60 days old. Please re-initiate the transfer after the initial 60 days has passed."

    So do I actually have to wait 60 days?!?!?!?!
