Connecting Your Domain to Your Host


You will have to make a quick and easy change in your GoDaddy account to connect your domain name to your hosting account on Blue Host.

Login over at GoDaddy and keep stay logged in at Blue Host.

After logging into GoDaddy, go to the Domain Manager section, and then click your domain name.

There is a lot of stuff you don't have to worry about there – just hover over the icon that says Nameservers and click “Set Nameservers”.

This page will have two fields, Nameserver 1 and Nameserver 2, that already have information in them. You will be replacing this with information from Blue Host.

At this point, go back to Blue Host and click on the Domain Manager tab and select the box next to your domain.

The next page will show the information you need to enter into GoDaddy for your two nameservers.

Nameservers on Blue Host

The nameservers for me were ns1.bluehost.com and ns2.bluehost.com. Yours may be different.

This nameserver information at Blue Host will be entered over at the Set Nameservers area on GoDaddy. Just copy and paste your information from Blue Host to GoDaddy and click OK.

Your hosting account will be connected to your domain name pretty soon. Sometimes it happens in a matter of minutes – other times it will take hours or more.

Your nameservers have been set.

The next step is to install WordPress on your hosting account.
