Here you will know about connecting your domain to a web hosting account. In order to perform this task we must have both the hosting account and the domain name to attach with each other. I have divided this tutorial into two steps.
Step 1. First of all go to the “Welcome Email” sent by the hosting company and get the DNS or nameserver.
Step 2. Then you will move to your domain account and enter that DNS/nameserver in our domain account.
This was the very short method to know how to do it, but as a beginner WordPress users you wouldn’t understand what I said, so don’t need to be worry about here’s your step by step guide how to connect your domain with web hosting. Here we would use HostGator email that they would send you, if you are using other hosting it would also similar.

Basically the nameservers would be different in number as some companies usually have 2 nameservers but some hosting providers have 3 or 4. Here we use two nameservers sent by HostGator.com
Copy these nameservers and go to the domain register enter these into the specific section. Here we are using NameCheap as domain registrar and if you using a domain by GoDaddy the process will be same.
