Step 1: Log into your Namecheap account and click the top left user id dropdown menu.

Step 2: Select the domain you would like to set up your new DNS name servers for. Click “MANAGE” to the right of the domain you selected.

Step 3: Scroll down until you see “NAMESERVERS”. These two lines will be where you will enter your custom DNS servers from Hostgator.

Step 1: Go back to your Namecheap domain manage page and enter the two name servers on the two dotted lines. Click the green tick on the right to save.

(It could take up to 48 hours for the DNS change to take effect. On average it updates in around 3 hours for me.)


Step 1: Finally go back to your Hostgator Cpanel, scroll down until you see the domains tab. Here you will see an icon named “Addon Domains”. The link will take you to a new page in the Cpanel.

Step 2: Fill in as following:

New Domain Name: (the domain name you have have chosen)
Subdomain or FTP Username: mytrafficglobal (Autofill)
Document Root: public_html/ (Autofill)

Obviously don’t use my domain, its just there for format example.

Step 3: Now create a password for you to log in.

Final Step: Finally click “Add Domain” to save your new domain name, and viola. You have completed transferring your domain ,and adding a domain name using name cheap and Hostgator.
