Now open up the confirmation email you got from Hostgator:

1. You need to copy the “NS1” and “NS2” values into the “Custom Name Servers” fields in Moniker

See below:

1. Make sure these values are copied EXACTLY
2. Click the orange “Save” button

This opens the “Domain DNS Management” page:


This image is hidden for guests. Please login or register to see it.
1. You will see the domain name listed along with the “Primary DNS” value and the “Secondary DNS” value

It will take anything from 2 hours to 24 hours before the connection between your domain name and the HostGator hosting takes effect.

I suggest waiting until the next day before you try to install Wordpress on your newly hosted domain.

Dear Johnno,

Thanks for the tutorials. Why do you use Moniker for domain registrations?

You find it better than GoDaddy or NameCheap? In terms of service as well as pricing?

Regards,
Carty..

Price:
.COM
Namecheap $10.16
GoDaddy $12.17
Moniker $8.99

Service/Ease of Use
Moniker has the easiest to use website
GoDaddy is especially complicated
NameCheap is better than GoDaddy, but not as good as Moniker

Other:
Moniker has an affiliate program
