Pointing Your Domain At Your Hosting Account

In order to get the domain you purchased on Proud Domains to work with the hosting you purchased on Host Gator, you will need to configure it properly.This video will show you how to do that and is part of my series on ‘How To Start A Blog‘.

  2. Another great post, Thanks a lot court.

    But Seriously I keep telling you guys that prouddomians is not working, I keep getting a request timed out, Im also on a broadband connection so no matter how heavy the site is it should atleast show up. or maybe it does not work fro my geographical area, Im from Pakistan. Dont know why is that?

  3. I’m sorry to hear you’re having problems Faraz. It might be because of your area, but I don’t know why that would be. They work fine for me here in the USA. I guess it is possible that they have service (or not) based on geography. Hopefully Court can figure this one out.

  4. Court,
    Thanks for making me aware of Host Gator. I have been using goDaddy and was considering renting a server, but I’m not at a place to dish out that kind of cash yet. Question is this though, I notice host gator allows multiple domains and SQL databases with their “Baby” package… I wanted to host say 7 different websites on this one package all with 7 different domains, could I do so and would it follow the same process?

  6. For multiple domains hosted on HostGator, both “adding” and “parking” have pluses and minuses. Which do you prefer and why? I am leaning toward “parking”.

  7. Hello Court et. al. !

    I’m working my way through the keyword academy steps, and I’ve reached a problem – I want to install WordPress on my second site (my first is already set up but so far has earned nothing, mainly due to spending too much time developing a site for keywords that had PR5+ frontrunners – wish I’d found KWA sooner…). I host with HostGator and use Namecheap as my domain registrar.

    The big issue here is that I don’t want to set up a discreet hosting environment for every domain I register – I want to load up multiple domains onto my one HostGator account. So I suppose my first question is – is this a good idea?

    Next question, if it’s OK to do the above: I’ve worked out how to add a second domain at hostgator, and I chose to make it an addon domain, so my path to the site is “/public_html/myseconddomain.com”, and I’ve figured out how to get to that place with Dreamweaver (which I have basic competence with).

    I’m *not* sure, however, how to point my “myseconddomain.com” traffic to the addon domain – URL forwarding? If so, what would the path be? Would I need to move DNS to HostGator?

    OK, enough for now – thanks again for the exceptionally clear and concise methodology that you present in teaching this, I look forward to learning and applying more!
