Host server = HostGator, Domain registered = Go Daddy, Site = WordPress. Which DNS do I update??

I registered my domain name with GO DADDY a while ago.

Decided to set up a blog so used the Host site HOSTGATOR

Then set up my site on WORDPRESS but now want to use my register GODADDY domain name to appear as my WORDPRESS URL.


Even though I've successfully managed to link my domain to the Wordpress, I want the url to reflect this... I know i have to update DNS name servers but I'm not sure if need update the GoDaddy DNS or the HostGator DNS.


Can someone help??

Thank you

In your HostGator cPanel in the lower left sidebar you'll see two nameservers for your hosting account.  Those are what you need to put in your DNS record on GoDaddy.
