In your Hostgator dashboard, in the left side bar, you'll see your hosting server's nameservers.  It will look something like this:

 

Name Servers
nsXXXX.hostgator.com
nsXXXX.hostgator.com
 
You then want to add the specific ns nameservers noted in your dashboard as "custom" nameservers on your GoDaddy domain record.  GoDaddy has a step-by-step here.
 
Then, once the domain is pointing at your Hostgator hosting account you can begin to build your site.

I am just beginning. How do I post a message for my newly acquired .com  name?  What is Hostgators hosting?

Is this for a free website?

hey @megwinkler 
We can not confirm hosting offers/pricing for another company, however, you can connect any Godaddy domain with hosting from another provider.  

If you would like to see Godaddy hosting options please click on this link:  https://www.godaddy.com/hosting?isc=cardigan
