Your question was: How to set a newly purchased domain name from godaddy.com to the ip address of a webserver.?.
I concur, and if you plan to use the HostGator for business, you are a business.
Update: The comments further on in the thread make very good points. Be sure to follow the rules in the country you are registering your domain...
Thanks. I just wanted to make sure that they wont take my name away if a large corporation wanted and I was in a low bracket as far as profits from the "business". Thanks Again...
To make sure you're getting good info, on which extension(s) do you see this rule?.
Take .ca as an example.ca allows Canadians, permanent residents and companies incorporated in Canada or a province to register .ca name. It wouldn't take too bright a lawyer to figure out there's no Canadian corporation called 'John Doe'. And poof your HostGator is gone. You'll probably never run into a problem unless someone really wants your domain. If I were really serious about a specific country code I'd do it right and make sure I met the legal requirements...
Residency requirements are different than the requirements to which the OP refers..
But glad to know that Canada still protects something.
Please allow me to amend my previous comment.
I read your posting quickly and missed the part about "foreign extensions".
As I have not yet registered any "foreign extensions" ,please disregard my advice.
I was referring to the occasions where some Registrars require the.
Organization field of the Who Is to be completed.
On those occasions you could just put in your First and Last name.
Heed the advice of others regarding foreign HostGator registrations.
Although I meant to be helpful, I apologize for possibly misleading you.
