  1. how to get this page

    because I want to make a website and I have just purchased the hosting and I have purchased the domain from Godaddy and how to get the nameservers so I don't know anything

  2. I put the DNS from HostGator into my Domains I have on Google Domains and they are not transferring. It is going on 48-hours. I ask because you make it seem like I must transfer them to HostGator which is not something that you usually have to do, so I just am concerned.

    It says I may have to add the domain to hosting package, then crashes when I click for more info.

    Why would it make me do this other than to hold me hostage for more money?

  3. I did this, and I still have no working site. I've spent hours on chat with various people getting disconnecting, telling me to wait for propogation (it's over a week now), and lots of other nonsense that has left me with a non-functioning site. Still. 🙁

  4. It`s my first time to do the installation of Hostgator and WordPress, I guess I have done mistakes in the installation progress, coz my domain name is reflectin that is pending. couldn't understand the issue, any help, please???
