hey guys Tyler here with green monkey marketing.com today I'm going to show you how to set up your GoDaddy domain name on your Bluehost hosting account I'm going to assume you already have a GoDaddy domain name if you don't get one and I'm also going to assume that you have Bluehost hosting already set up if you don't have Bluehost hosting set up look below this video we'll get you some discounts on setting up your Bluehost hosting account cool so let's dive in let's go to the GoDaddy main page so once you get logged into your account you're going to go to my account visit my account this will pull up let's go to domains and manage domains it looks like this account has just one domain name in it so it looks a little different than others that might have more domain names in it for this we're going to go to domain details it's going to pull up all of your settings DNS zone files etc so what we need to do to point this domain name to Bluehost is click on name servers we're going to change the name servers to Bluehost name servers so click on manage then we're going to click on custom then we're going to add name server so the there's two name servers you need the first one is ns-one Bluehost comm the second one is NS 2 . Bluehost comm so after you add those in there go ahead and click OK and then it looks like it added them there go ahead and click Save so you've just saved the name servers it looks like it takes a few minutes to set up the name servers usually it's pretty quick so let's go over to Bluehost and see if it worked ok so this is the main Bluehost page this little thing comes up so just exit that out go right into your domains tab at the top next to hosting once you get in there you'll see shortcuts click on assign a domain name to your cPanel account cool so the domain I'm going to go back to GoDaddy to get the domain name this is the domain name that we're setting up and it's verifying the domain name right now to see if the name servers have switched looks like it worked pretty quick as you can see here it is verified that this domain name is set up with the Bluehost name servers then you're going to want to go down and don't worry about any of this stuff it's pretty stock just go ahead and assign this domain takes a few seconds to load this but that's pretty much it after this page loads you are all set set up with your GoDaddy domain name on your Bluehost hosting account as I said before if you don't have Bluehost click on the link below you'll get some discounts with the Bluehost hosting account so I think it's like 395 per month to start which is just phenomenal is the the Bluehost the Bluehost hosting account is pretty good I like it better than GoDaddy seems to be a little quicker we used to use GoDaddy it's just really slow so we switch to Bluehost and have seen phenomenal results looks like this thing is still loading once it loads it'll just take you back to like your file manager page or domain name page whatever and you are set to go if you want to learn how to create a website from scratch after you set up your hosting look for look out for a couple of videos from us subscribe to our Channel and you're good to go so took a while but as you can see it is now set up on our hosting account so that is it have a good one we'll see you guys later .
