Just 2 weeks ago, I purchased my first domain at godaddy.com . I will use it as a practice site for my blogging career. As a first timer with this situation, I had to rely on several online tutorials on how to link my domain name from godaddy.com to my hosting account in hostazar.com. In the beginning I was really freaking out because I had to learn it every step of the way.

It was confusing at first but then I understood it as I went along with the online video instructions at becomeablogger. I use a different domain registrant and hosting account, didn't use what they recommended yet because I have learned from most of the forums that godaddy.com is the best domain registrant and I used hostazar.com because they offer a monthly payment scheme in which, I could always discontinue if I don't like the services they will give me.

In linking your domain name to your hosting account, go to your domain registrars account and access your control panel. Use the username and password that you have given when you have registered. In the control panel, you coulod edit/change your personal info, like name, phone numbers, address, because all of this are accessible through whois inquiry. You wouldn't want spammers to spam your email. So be cautious in the info you put here.

Back to the original topic, look for the DNS servers. After locating this, you can go to your email and read the email sent to you by the hosting company containing the DNS servers.

The DNS servers is what "connects hosting with the domain name" and your web host will most likely provide you with a set of DNS servers, both primary and secondary.Enter the new DNS information to your domains control panel and you are set to go.

I hope this was helpful for you...
