that is asked which is what a Hostgator addon domain is? An addon domain in Hostgator is a domain that
you can create within your Hostgator Cpanel. An excellent way to think of it is you have
multiple Hostgator hosting packages, and they are all sharing the same Hostgator Cpanel. With an addon domain, you can create email
addresses, forwarders and everything else you can do like your primary domain name. To put it in simpler terms an addon domain
is how you would add a second website to Hostgator. The addon domain shares the same Hostgator
Cpanel and the server. Hostgator offers unlimited addon domains for
all of their hosting accounts except for the Hatchling plan. Here are the steps on How To Add Addon Domain
In Hostgator The first step in our add addon domain in
Hostgator tutorial is pointing your domain name servers to the Hostgator nameserver. If you purchased your additional domain name
from Hostgator, you can move on to the next step as your nameservers will already be pointing
to Hostgator. If you purchased your domain name from another
domain provider like Godaddy or my favorite domain provider Namecheap you will need to
log in to your domain registrars dashboard and go to the nameservers section and input
Hostgator’s nameservers. Unlike Bluehost where they have static nameservers
Hostgator’s nameservers are correspondent to the hosting server, you are on with Hostgator. I’ll show you how to find your Hostgator
nameservers so you can add them into your domain registrars nameservers section. When you purchased Hostgator more than likely,
you would have gotten your nameservers sent to you in your Hostgator welcome email. If you have that email saved you can pull
it up. Another way to locate your Hostgator nameservers
is to log in to your Hostgator Cpanel. Once you are logged in to your Hostgator Cpanel,
you will see a menu over to the left. Find preferences and click to move on to the
next step to find your Hostgator nameservers. Next, scroll down and over on the right-hand
side you will see your Hostgator nameservers listed. You now want to log in to your domain registrars
dashboard and find the nameservers section. Here is what the Godaddy nameserver section
looks like. Here is what the Namecheap nameserver section
looks like. If you need help pointing your Hostgator nameservers
to Namecheap, I’ve provided our video tutorial in the description below. If you need help pointing your Hostgator nameservers
to Godaddy, I’ve provided a link to the video in the description below. How To Create Addon domain in Hostgator Cpanel

browser and see if the addon domain is live. This part takes some patience. And that is my tutorial video on how to add
