// NAME SERVER INFORMATION
If you have registered your domain already with someone else and you choose to register hosting with Hostgator, then you will need to point name servers to your Hostgator account. You will have your nameservers emailed to you, but you can also find them (primary and secondary DNS) in the right column within your CPanel.
Important – if you have services such as email linked to your domain, you may need to talk to your IT specialist or domain provider as you will need to insert new A Records / possible CNAME records instead – these will keep your email or other services linked and still link your website to your new hosting.
