To connect your Hostgator domain to your Heroic site, you'll need to add our nameservers to your Hostgator domain.
Important note about custom email
If you have a custom email address linked to your domain, please get your MX records from your email host BEFORE changing your nameservers. The exception to this is if you use GoDaddy's email platform, G-Suite or Office 365. In that case you won't need your MX records. It will be a one-click setup via the Custom Domain panel after you connect your domain.
Connect your Hostgator domain to your Heroic site
- Log in to your Hostgator account
- Create or update your A record and set to key to: @, and set to value to 126.96.36.199
- When finished, click Save
Allow 3-6 hours for this to update across the internet. (IMPORTANT: In some rare cases, this might take 24-48 hours to update!)
