Connecting a domain to hosting involves configuring the domain's DNS (Domain Name System) settings to point to the hosting provider's servers. Here's a general guide on how to connect a domain to hosting:


  1. Choose a Hosting Provider:

    • Select a hosting provider that meets your needs. Popular hosting providers include Bluehost, SiteGround, HostGator, and many others.
  2. Register a Domain:

    • If you haven't registered a domain yet, you'll need to do so through a domain registrar. Some hosting providers offer domain registration services as well.
  3. Get Nameservers from Hosting Provider:

    • Once you have a hosting account, the hosting provider will provide you with nameservers. Nameservers are addresses that indicate where your domain's DNS records are stored.
  4. Log in to Domain Registrar's Account:

    • Access your domain registrar's account where you registered the domain.
  5. Find DNS or Name Server Settings:

    • Look for a section in your domain registrar's dashboard related to DNS settings, name servers, or domain management.
  6. Update Nameservers:

    • Replace the existing nameservers with the ones provided by your hosting provider. There are usually two or more nameservers, and you need to update all of them.
  7. Save Changes:

    • Save the changes made to the DNS settings. It may take some time for these changes to propagate across the internet (DNS propagation), but usually, it happens within a few hours to 48 hours.
  8. Verify Connection:

    • After DNS propagation is complete, you can verify the connection by entering your domain in a web browser. If everything is set up correctly, it should lead to your website hosted on the chosen hosting provider.


  • DNS propagation time can vary, and during this period, some users may still see the old website or a temporary page.
  • Keep a record of your nameservers and other DNS settings for reference.
  • If you encounter any issues, reach out to your hosting provider's support or your domain registrar for assistance.

Remember that specific steps may vary slightly depending on the domain registrar and hosting provider you choose. If you're unsure about any step, refer to the documentation provided by your registrar or hosting provider, or contact their support for assistance.
