How do I use Hostpapa web hosting with a domain name purchased at Register.com to build a website? If you are asking this question or have a similar question as this, read on. This tutorial will show you how you can use your Register.com domain name to create a website using Hostpapa web hosting.

Creating a Website

To create a website, you first need to take care of your web hosting and domain name. As these two will enable your website to be accessible online, you need to ensure that these two are settled before you tackle building your web pages.

To do this, you need to link your domain name to your web hosting so that when your visitors enter your domain name or web address on their browser, they will be able to view your website. Follow the instructions below to point your domain name to your web host server.

  • Add Your Domain Name to Your Web Hosting Account

The first thing that you need to do so that your domain name will point to your web host server is to add your domain name to it. To do this, log in to your Hostpapa account then, on your cPanel, look for the ‘Domains’ category. Under that category, click the ‘Addon Domains’ icon. You will be able to add your domain name there by filling up the form that is shown on the page.

Enter your desired domain name, which you registered on Register.com. Also, provide your desired ftp username, root directory and password. These details will be your login info on your ftp client, which you will use to upload your website files to your server.

Click the ‘Add Domain’ button to add your domain. After this, you may now change your domain name DNS settings so that it will finally point to your web host server.

  • Make Your Domain Name Point to Your Web Hosting

The next step is to change the DNS settings of your domain name on your Register.com account. Log in then click the domain name that you want to edit. When you scroll down, you will find the existing nameservers along with empty fields for the new nameservers.

Open your welcome email from Hostpapa on your email account, which you used to sign up to Hostpapa, then copy the nameservers and paste them on the first two fields provided for the new nameservers. If you can’t find them, they would likely be ns1.hostpapa.com and ns2.hostpapa.com.

Click the ‘Continue’ button once you’re done then click the ‘Continue’ button again after confirming that the information about your domain name is correct.

After doing the two steps above, wait for 24-48 hours before you do anything with your domain name and server to ensure that the worldwide propagation of the DNS changes has already taken effect. After that timeframe, you can start uploading your content to your server to see if your website will work fine. If not, contact Register.com or Hostpapa’s support team so that they can look into your issue.
