    Are you sure that DNS settings you told namecheap have been sent and accepted yet at hostgator? Sometimes it takes up to 24-48 hours (and sometimes a couple hours).

    Look at your email from Hostgator, it will give you two nameservers - you need to go into your namecheap account and change the nameservers to the two that are in the hostgator email.

    Once you put them in, it normally only takes a few minutes for everything to update.

    1. check that you removed the crappy default html page that was there on the first place

    2. talk to their support

    If you are new to the internet and owning a site...you should at least have your domain and hosting from one provider..it makes things easier.

    Funny because from all experienced users i heard to ALWAYS get the domain and hosting on separate websites, i am* new to websites but i am not new to the internet :O

    If anybody else gets this problem here is a youtube video explaining it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KYzZbyXSYFE

    My website is still not showing though :(

    Ok, if you aren't new to the internet or tech, you're going to have to do some digging and maybe spend some time with tech support - since you can't give us details about your domain, it's kinda hard for us to give you specific answers. with the domain name, I could do a Whois and tell you right away if your nameservers are right - then try the domain and see what comes up. None of this is hard - but you have to learn it. Don't worry, it may take you some time, but you are learning - we ALL started where you're at... just some more years ago than others... lol

    Home Page:
    It looks like you have a baby plan which only allows you to use one domain name, when you registered with HG did you used the domain that you bought from namecheap?
