Name cheap and Host gator

Hi everyone. I paid for a domain name with Namecheap.com but when I went to Hostgator for web hosting I tried using the name I got from name cheap and Host gator said it was already taken? Did I miss a step here? Was I supposed to go to Hostgator first and then Namecheap? Can I correct this problem or do I just need to get a new name? Please advise.
Thank you.
JB

Your domain name is totally separate from your hosting account.
Your not supposed to enter the domain name you got at namecheap and enter it into hostgator, you just go to hostgator and sign up with a username.you want.
