You can do this using two different methods. You could change it through you DNS Registrar, whoever you registered your domain through, you can change it under that control panel. If hostgator uses cPanel, and I'm sure other control panels would work, but it would be called an Addon domain in cpanel, and you can use it to point to the main site. I hope this helps!
