Default How to connect hostgator nameserver into namecheap?

Dear Warriors,

I have bought domain at namecheap and web host on hostgator. How do I connect them?

Namecheap tell me to choose the host name and enter the IP for register my nameserver. Hostgator have gave me two of them - nsXXXX.hostgator.com

Since there is no option to input nameserver like those (nsXXXX.hostgator.com) so I look up what is those nameservers' IP addresses with IP Address Lookup (IPv4 & IPv6)

I got IP addresses of my nameservers...
And I have input it into namecheap...

Did I do it correctly?

Because, when I connecting with filezilla it always said, "could not connect to server".


Need-help-bumpy-new-IMer,
oggobis

EDIT: Problem SOLVED
Thanks a ton for everyone

..Delete what I have wrongly input :p
..Input what I have to input correctly
..Going to next step


EDIT #2
I think I should thank people who have helped show me the way. Previously I thought I shouldn't give thanks lightly, otherwise people won't appreciate it. Strange... I felt ungrateful How ever it might be, I should thanks people who deserve it.


My Apologies,
oggobis

Hey,

In Namecheap,

Go into: Manage Domains->Select Your Domain->Transfer DNS To Webhost

Goto manage domains and tick to edit the domain in question. Next select the "Domain Name Server Setup" link. Now check the second button that is for "Specify Custom DNS Servers" and enter your 2 given to you into block 1 and 2 then save. ( They will look like ns111.hostgator.com and ns222.hostgator.com )

Later when registering more domains, you can actually enter this info during the registration process to save a little time.

No, you do NOT enter anything for nameserver registration!

You follow exactly the steps outlined by Jack Powers above. Nothing else.

If you cannot connect to your server after following the nameserver suggestions above, you might not have entered in the info in Filezilla correctly. If you just purchased the domain, you may need to use your IP address for your hosting plan rather than the domain name until it resolves. You also need to enter your user name and password in Filezilla to connect.

I use both Hostgator and Namecheap and the process that you should use to get it to work is to login to NameCheap and click on the domain you want to change the nameservers on.

Then click on "Domain Name Server Setup" on the left menu, click the "Specify Custom DNS Servers ( Your own DNS Servers )" radio button and then enter the two nameservers in the text fields named 1 and 2.

Hit save changes and once the nameservers are propagated the site will be live. Propagation can take a few days, but usually it will be complete within 24 hours.

Once you change the DNS so the domain points to hostgator, you will need to wait a few hours or up to a day for the DNS to propagate through the web. Be certain you are using the correct DNS for your Hostgator acct.

I don't know what you are saying there - HG tells you what DNS to use - it will be ns1 and ns2 or could be ns243 and ns244 or something different. It's in the emails you receive when you get your hosting account.

If you can't find the right DNS, use HG live chat to find out what it is.

Here's a quote from namecheap ...

"You are currently using the following domain name servers.

1. NS2299.HOSTGATOR.COM
2. NS2300.HOSTGATOR.COM

You can certainly transfer your DNS back to us to take advantage of our free
features like e-mail forwarding, url forwarding, dynamic dns and other features.

It is very important to to note that if you transfer the dns back to us, your
current options at your web hosting company like e-mail, website may not
work. So, please excercise caution when switching DNS. Also, note that it will
take up to 24 hours for the changes to take effect."
