Can I host at hostgator while my domain is at Godaddy?

Mar 4, 2012 by web_enq
Hello guys,

My primary domain is pointed to Godaddy, so can I purchase hosting from Host Gator and point one of my sub domains to them by using a record?

yes you can, you can actually point either the main domain or sub domain a record to anywhere you liked.

You can easily add an A record for the subdomain by doing the following
1.Log in to your Go Daddy account.
2.Next to Domains, click Launch.
3.Click the domain name you want to update, and, in the DNS Manager section, click Launch.
4.Click the Add New Record. The Add DNS Record window displays.
5.The Host Name will be your subdomain and the Points to IP Address will be the IP Host Gator supplied you.
6.Click OK.
7.Click Save Zone File, then click OK. The new A record displays in the A (host) section.

hope this helps

Yes, you can do this.
Simply purchase the hosting, deploy your website content and make appropriate DNS changes to point domain\subdomain to Hostgator
