- You have a couple of domains on Godaddy, and you want to point your domain to Bluehost and Host your site on Bluehost.
The process is very simple, and all we need to do it update the Name server of the domain on Godaddy to point to Bluehost.
Later use Bluehost addon domain service to add these domains to your Bluehost account. By the end, your domain will still be on Godaddy, but you can install Website on them using Bluehost hosting.
