Domain Nameservers For Hostgator

Unlike Bluehost and Dreamhost, Hostgator does not have static nameservers for their hosting accounts.

An example of static nameservers is if you sign up with Bluehost or Dreamhost all users who purchase hosting will receive nameservers that are the same as everybody else.

For example, if you were to sign up with Bluehost your nameservers and everybody else’s nameservers would be ns1.bluehost.com and ns2.bluehost.com.

Since Hostgator doesn’t have static nameservers, everyone who purchases Hostgator hosting will have different nameservers based on their hosting plan.
