Purchasing and Configuring Web Hosting (HostGator)

Since you should have already registered a domain name, select the I will use My Existing Domain and update My Nameservers only option, enter your domain name in the Existing Domain field and click next>>.

In the Order Wizard (Fig. B.4) the domain name you entered should be pre-selected as the primary domain. You’ll need to select your billing cycle. Since HostGator doesn’t offer a discount unless you choose the 24-month option I recommend paying monthly. I don’t like being locked into a long-term hosting in the unlikely event something does go wrong.

Once you’ve selected your billing cycle click the Calculate Totals button.

You should be viewing an Order Details page similar to the one above. If the information in your order is correct, select whether you’re a new or existing customer. If you’re a new customer (the default option), you just need to click Continue.

Magy, I’m not sure I understand your question. If you sign up for a domain name AND web hosting at godaddy, you will see a coming soon notice when you try to view your site until you upload (through ftp) your own content. GoDaddy should have sent you a welcome email with the ftp information.

If that doesn’t answer your question, let me know.
