Hey, I did Gate.com not so long ago, I actually still am subscribed to them. Now I would like to try Host Gator out, and use the same domain I registered with Gate.com. Can I do this while I'm still subscribed to Gate? Would this cause any trouble?
I would really like to try Host Gator but I don't wanna get rid of Gate in case I end up liking it better.
You would have to change the nameservers via Gate.com to match the nameservers of HostGator, although I am unsure if Gate.com allows you to do that. ?
You can make an account with hostgator for the same domain and upload the files. However, the files you upload to hostgator would be visible only when you change your domains nameserver to hostgator. Otherwise you can use it as a backup service like if you have a.com and two hosting a/cs at b.com and c.com upload same content to both b.com and c.com and put the following in nameservers
or vice versa
this way if a.com goes down, site loads from b.com
hope this helps.
+ karma, thanks for the help bro
