Hostgator offer shared, reseller and vps hosting. If you buy any hosting plan from Hostgator, then you have to use existing domain name or you have to buy a new domain name with hosting plan. In earlier posts, I offered you how-to guide on Installing WordPress on Hostgator and how-to guide on adding add-on domain in Hostgator.
After buying hosting plan you can easily change primary domain (i.e., the domain associated while buying web hosting account). This post focus on changing Primary Domain Name on Hostgator.
