Change bluehost nameserver

If you’re hosting your WordPress site with Bluehost, you can use the Bluehost nameservers to point to the computer where your site lives.

The Bluehost nameservers are:

ns1.bluehost.com
162.88.60.37

ns2.bluehost.com
162.88.61.37

The process for correctly setting up the name servers depends on whether you registered your domain with Bluehost or with a third party registrar (GoDaddy, Domain.com, Hostgator, etc).

Nameserver Setup For A Bluehost Domain

If you have a Bluehost domain (you registered your domain directly with Bluehost), you can make the required changes in your control panel.

  1. Log in to your Bluehost control panel. You can access your control panel directly from the homepage or from your Bluehost webmail login
  2. Select “Domains” from the top list
  3. Select the specific domain you’d like to edit. When you select the domain, new options will appear along the right hand side of the screen
  4. From those new options, choose “Nameservers”
  5. Enter your name server information and save it
