Online research + a question about names

I've been doing genealogy for many years but haven't delved very far into my Norwegian ancestors. I have found a few things on FamilySearch, but lately I've been trying to look up census records (on and and have had absolutely no luck. Does anyone have any tips on using those databases? I'm interested in the mid-late 19th century.

Also, in a few records I've seen names listed like so:
Andreas Johannesen Hauger and Johanne Johannesdatter
Andreas Johannesen and Johanne Johannesdatter Hauger
And I was wondering what the "Hauger" signifies and why it appears sometimes but not always (if I'm following the correct people).

My family came from Ostfold and Akershus.
