I've registered a new domain with namecheap. Say for example I've created a new account at Hostgator and add for hosting at them. When I received the welcoming e-mail from Hostgator I changed the nameservers at namecheap to point to Hostgator.


I registered a second new domain with namecheap for example - how do I add this domain to my Hostgator account? I want this as a second new, main domain on its own.

    point your nameservers to hostgator for every domain you buy..then inside your cPanel do as dave147's not complicated
    If you have problems just use live chat with their CS service, and they will walk you through

  • you need to make it an addon domain.

    Go to cpanel, where it says addon domain under domains.

    Fill in the details.

    It also depends if you have a HG reseller account or not. If not, the above directions are correct.

    If you have a reseller account you need to log-in to your WebHostManager and click on "Add A New Account" and follow the steps from there.

    Good Luck,

    You have to have the "baby" account or the "business" account or a reseller account. The "hatchling" will only allow 1 domain. So if you don't see the "add on domains" or if it doesn't work that could be why.

    I have a reseller account and add it via the whm, be sure to add diskspace, bandwidth, and mysql databases if you want to run any scripts / blogs on the site.

    Should you get stuck the support desk at hostgator have always been quick to respond to my tickets.

      Hostgators phone number is on the top of the page. Tell them what you want and they'll walk you through it, or they will do it for you.

      Best Regards,

    I have hosting with numerous (50+) addons and now want to upgrade to a reseller account. Hostgator will transfer my sites to the new hosting account but I will need to move them to their new cpanels myself.

    I printed the directions from hostgator's site (and is seems relatively straight forward) but before I actually get started on moving my sites I was curious to see if anyone had any step-by-step screen captures that shows how to do this?

    I would appreciate any help that could be provided.

    Are You Ready? It's Coming!
