1. Login to your HostGator Portal.

2. Select the Domains tab from the left-side menu.

3. Click the domain name to show the Domain Overview window.

4. Hover your mouse over the icons on the left side to expand them, and click on the Name Servers option.

5. Select the Manually set my name servers option, and input Skystra nameservers:
