Hosting From Godaddy

Updated video for 2019! Learn how to point a GoDaddy domain towards Bluehost so that you can start building your blog as soon as possible.

If you purchased your domain name separate from your web host, you’ll need to make a few small changes in order for your blog to be viewed online.

Reason being, in order for your domain name to be viewable, it needs to “point” towards your web host’s DNS and the name servers need to be set correctly.

Bluehost’s name servers:

ns1.bluehost.com
ns2.bluehost.com

This video is an updated version of my previous tutorial because GoDaddy recently changed its customer portal. Due to this, the steps to reconfigure the name servers have changed as well. So, this updated video walks you through the new process of pointing a GoDaddy domain towards Bluehost.

Also, be sure to grab your FREE copy of “The Blog Starter Kit” and learn how to build, grow, and monetize your blog. Inside I’ll show you how to turn any blog into a thriving business.

  1. we dont need to forword a self hosted website ?? i forword my website with the same domain name and now i cant go to wordpress editor , when i click to wordpress editor i get sucerity check , and i cant open my website

  2. Hey Ben, great video! I have a small doubt tho, the thing is I am changing my domain registrar from podc to godaddy and my hosting service is bluehost, so what are the steps i need to follow to connect my new domain to my hosting provider also my email provider is office 365 so what should i do in that case as well. Your advice would really mean a lot, Thanks!

  3. Half way there. In other videos i saw People performing more steps. They are clicking on assign and adding it to BlueHost as addon domain. I'm really confused here. Bcoz i want my other website to be separate, so that me and my brother can go our separate ways in the future. A reply would be really helpful. Btw, your explanation is awesome.

  4. wow amazing! I was determined to set up and configure my own website without any help. I like how clear and specific this video was, esp. mentioning the configuration of Bluehost may be different down the road. really helpful to find a video where someone isn't jumping all over the place. Thanks for taking the time to put this together. Much appreciated.

  5. This was a really great video that was well designed, easy to follow, and straight to the point. I am truly impressed and I now I am going to check out your other videos! Thanks for this!

  6. Great advice and very easy to follow. I also bought a domain with godaddy and hosting with Bluehost. I’ve changed the nameservers as demonstrated and waiting for it to update. When I go into WordPress via Bluehost to update my site, the URL/domain displayed is a random mash of letters. Is this a normal thing to expect until the domain and host match up?

  7. Can I ask for some help? I am trying to point a .ca I bought on Godaddy over to Bluehost. I don't understand though, because in the updated version of this video, in bluehost there's already a domain name present (bensnewbloggingvideo.com) that is clicked to access the name servers.
    I am building a website on bluehost. There is nothing listed in the domain section, just the option to purchase a new domain (which would defeat the point of pointing my name over). What am I missing here? TIA

  8. I still dont understand why dont they make it easier to set up the bloody domain and hosting for worpress with 2 simple clicks. Finally a video that exlains it! Now will wait for this to be updated and let's see if i can use my purchased domain soon.

  9. Hi Ben,

    This was really helpful. I changed the name servers from the registrar where the domain was bought and pointed them to bluehost. At the moment the site I've built has a temporary domain that bluehost assigned me. How do I go about getting rid of this temporary domain and linking the site to the actual domain name? Thanks in advance
