Can I buy a domain name without buying hosting?

Yes, you can buy domain names without buying/having a HostGator hosting plan.

Register with HostGator/LaunchPad

To do so, please visit https://register.hostgator.com/ and purchase the domain you want. The domain registry tool requires credit card payment and is limited to .com, .net, .org, .info, .biz.

Register with HostGator/eNom (Registry Rocket)

You can also register .ws, .us, .bz, .cc, .nu, and .tv online via Registry Rocket.

If the type of domain you want cannot be purchased online, or you need to pay with a method other than credit card, please email sales@hostgator.com for assistance.
