How To Assign A Domain In BlueHost – Step 2 of 2

A good piece of advise if you are thinking of #bluehost. I started hosting with them in may 2013. Just after a couple of months, my websites were down for more than 3 days. The only way to communicate with them was through Facebook. It may happen with any server, but their inability to communicate with the clients but only through Facebook is really sad. I started getting problems with my emails slowly. The emails from different domains/ different email accounts will stay in the outbox for hours before leaving. I sent them emails about it. They will reply back to me but the thread will be missing. They will keep asking silly question in their reply after a day or two. I never had any email problem sorted. I moved 5 domains to new hosting. I just do not want any other to get into this nightmare; hence wasting my time and writing this. WHen you google for #bluehost Bad service, there are many Davids, and Sharma’s talking so nicely about #bluehost in their blogs aor Hosting review sites. Beware!

Learn how to assign a domain in Bluehost that you purchased from a different registrar. Make the most of your unlimited hosting plan. Remember, that before you can “assign” a domain in your host provider you should have “pointed the domain” or “changed name servers” on the provider from whom you bought the domain. See my video on how to Point a Domain from GoDaddy to Bluehost.

    Hello, Thank you for the tutorial, but it still telling me to verify my nameservers even after I already point them in my registerer company, how much time it will take to do that??

    If you choose the "Create a new directory" option, it shows just below that part that you're setting it up as a subdomain… does that mean that your URL for this domain you just added is now: ? I'm actually avoiding having it as a subdomain, I have a registered domain with bluehost and one with godaddy, I'm trying to do the same thing here, but I don't want it as a subdomain. Can you tell me if that's what's happening here?
