How to point domain name to website hosted elsewhere

Today I  am going to Discuss about  How to point  domain name to  website hosted elsewhere. Most of the beginners faces this type of silly Problems. I also faced this problem . But after Some Time I feel that this is very simple.

There  are many People Who have same problem that I have mentioned earlier. They are unable to point  Domain name to  Website hosted elsewhere. Because they  bay domain from Godaddy or other’s  Domain registrar Company Like Namecheap, hostgator and Hosted their website to a different Hosting Company Like Hostgator , Bluehost etc.. in this Condition  beginners gets Confuse to Configure it. So I am here to Resolve this Confusion. So please Keep on eyes on it.

As we all know that Godaddy is a best internet Domain registrar & Web hosting Company . But my experience says that godaddy is  only a good  Domain registrar Company but not a good Web hosting Company.

There may be many Combinations  for domain registration and hosting . because their are number of  Web hosting & domain registrar companies . One can choose any of these Combinations Given Below:

Domain Registrar Company    Web Hosting Company            Combinations
1. Godaddy  Godaddy      Godaddy + Godaddy
2. Namecheap Namecheap     Namecheap + Namecheap
3.Godaddy Bluehost     Godaddy + Bluehost 
4. Godaddy Hostgator     Godaddy + Hostgator
5.Namecheap Hostgator      Namecheap+ Hostgator
6.Namecheap Bluehost      Namecheap + Bluehsot

However Their are many other Hosting and domain registrar Companies. but i have listed only Most popular Companies.

You can Choose One of them from the list to  Make your Website . I suggest you to Choose  3rd , 4th , 5th & 6th Combinations to make  your website. I also chose 4th Combination .

I  am taking  4th Combination  as my Prime Concern. According to it godaddy choose for Domain Registration and Hostgator Choose for web hosting.
