So I registered my very first domain name at Name Cheap and got hosting at Host Gator because they were highly recommended to me.
It took me a day or two to realize I needed to transfer the DNS to Host Gator's name servers.... so I did.
...and I waited.
I still can't see the Wordpress I installed on my site after several days. Now suddenly my website isn't even online. I can't log into it or even see it. No connection... like my internet breaks whenever I go to it.
I contact Host Gator's live support. They verify the transfer was done correctly on my end and it was in "propagation" or whatever term they used. I just needed to wait a bit longer.
Satisfied with that, I waited another day. Still nothing. I contact them again today and was told everything went through fine.
When asked why my website is offline, I was informed that I needed to transfer my EMAIL to their name servers and then gave me two different ones to transfer that to.
I asked how to do that and I was told I needed to ask Name Cheap.
Thank you for contacting Namecheap Support Team!
We would like to inform you that domain name Howtotextwomen.com is properly pointed to the following nameservers on our end:
(I edited out the actual servers, but they were indeed correct.)
However, there are no corresponding records for the domain name on these nameservers. Please contact your hosting provider in order to have the records for the domain created on their nameservers.
Please feel free to contact us, if you have any questions.
What the heck is that? I am so confused!
