Any advice for a newbie?

    OK  smile,

    I bought domains.  I have somewhere to host them.  I know the servers to be used over at Hostgator.

    I do not know how to set up my domains with Godaddy, so everyone can see them at Hostgator?  Nor do I know how to get Google to ignore my domain until it is built.

    Pretty much any advice would be appreciated, 

    Please, explain it to me like I am a four year old.


    Thanks

    wink

    I want to park my domains.
    I want to forward my domains.
    I have a hosting account with these domains.
    I have specific nameservers for my domains.


    I am not sure which option to enter the servers?

    Hostgator has some great tutorial videos, but for some reason, I cannot get them to play on my pc.  Grrrr!

    You can skip the first part of this but it then gets to your  problem and goes step by step with pics.

    I have the nameserver procedure down. Through the link and the video that I finally got to play for me.  I am only wondering about the SE crawls.  As there is no content, is there an easy way to hide it from the search engines?

      My experience has been that if you do not specifically request search engines to crawl your site then you should have quite a bit of time.  Even if they did crawl your site they will crawl it again in the future so it is not like it is the end of the world if your page was not complete at the time of a crawl.  Just my two cents.

        True, I have them up and running.  I did not realize Wordpress would put up some generic pages.  LOL, I thought I was going to be exposed as completely shallow!

        Just waiting for WP to send me a password, so I can change it up a bit.

        Thank you
