how can i host a website using Hostgator with Godaddy Domain?

I have a hosting form Hostgator and domain with the GoDaddy. I'm able to publish my one website ap.setup but not able to host my second domain tplinkrepeater.net on the same. My second query is that previously my second website was hosted on my friends hosting but now I want to move the website without losing any data.

 

 

Any suggestion, please?

 

Thanks in advance

You can either use the nameservers from Hostgator, or update your DNS here.

Moving a website depends on how it is set-up.  If it's a static website you'll need to move over the files and change the domain settings.  If the website uses databases they would need to be moved over as well.

Hi @Nate it's on wordpress and i used Updraft Plus plugin for the Backup of all the website. Now i have the Backup files but don't know how to use those files.

If you used Updraft to make the backup, you should simply have to install the Updraft plugin again on a fresh WordPress install and import the backup file, wherever you stored it. Once complete, you should have your website.

I'm honestly not sure in this case. You may just need tweak the settings on the HostGator side. They use their own SSL setup, so I imagine that might be the issue. It could be something as simple as an HTTP to HTTPS redirect in the .htaccess file or it could have something to do with their system setup. 

 

Based on my research, this should be an issue easily corrected by contacting HostGator support.
